Besides the fact that some leadman/managers here treat workers unfairly it is a great place to work at, you learn different thing everyday and you can move up from your position as long as you work hard for it.
You can learn a lot there but there's minimal chance to advance and incentives are nonexistent. Plenty of overtime, sometimes too much but as I mentioned before, zero incentive. Raises are a joke and management is extremently unexperienced at handling every tasks as well as issues as they arise. In summary: lots of overtime providing you the opportunity to learn the trade, crummy raises and everyone fends for themselves as management has no clue as to what they're doing.
I support production and engineering in designing and producing a metal/ceramic coating for gas turbines. Samples are sprayed by production and evaluated by my lab before production can begin. This could be air plasma, HVOF or/and ceramic. I have an awesome team of co-workers. We keep tight control on documentation and quality. I review routers, analyze and write final reports. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing our customers are getting the best coating in the business. The hardest part will be leaving Houston Texas, because it is time to relocate to the home I own in Eastern Tennessee.

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.
