The job was quite easy to do and pay was more than fair for the tasks being completed. It can be very tough to get a more permanent position, and unfortunately many supervisors are dishonest and/or duplicitous. Much of the supervisor's efforts seem to be geared toward getting rid of candidates rather than grooming new permanent prospects. I recommend this job for good, easy income, but caution to watch yourself very carefully and be aware supervisors may not have your interests at heart.
It was okay. I think it all depends on which department you work for. With my job, the work-life balance was not good at all, having to work up to 16 hours with as little as a 30 minute notice is hard on everyone. It can also be extremely stressful at times, often being in the front line for the hospital. It is common to hear from upset and frustrated people on a constant basis. At the end of the day, I was thankful to have a job, and you do get to help people.
I've worked at the University of Michigan as a Graduate Student Research Assistant at the micro systems lab. I've found the job to be challenging yet satisfying. It's opened up doors for collaboration with multiple research groups working at the frontiers of technology in engineering and medical fields. Colleagues and professors are exceptionally motivated about their work and will take time out to help you. I'd suggest the workplace to a friend.
