Power Plant Fabrication Shop
Machinist/Welder (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 3, 2012
There was no "typical day" at work for me. Depending on the size of the job, depended on how long I stayed working on the same task. I learned several different skills at this job such as, tig welding, mig welding, grinding, beveling, jacking vanes to correct height dimensions, jacking air seals to correct dimensions, jacking blade rings to correct dimesions, assembling/disassembling blade rings/air seals. The management was always very organized, and cared for their employees. My co-workers turned into close friends and taught me a lot of things about the job. The hardest part of the job was learning the steps of each job. The most enjoyable part of this job was that I truly loved what I did, so I looked forward to going to work each day.
