My best career experience so far.
Field Engineer and Technical Instructor (Former Employee), MTA NYC transit, LIRR, MNR & NJT.March 7, 2014
It was a wonderful experience to be involved with the various stages of production on rapid transit and commuter rail car equipment in Plattsburg, N.Y.
The delivery, commission testing and warranty support of the NYC Transit Subway rail cars was another great educational experience working with a multitude of different systems such as Propulsion, Braking, Doors, Controls, Power Supplies, communications, Signs and the Networks that operated and monitored them.

Management and my co-workers was a pleasure to work for an with.

The hardest part of the experience was the work schedule which varied through different shifts especially during commissioning and as the Field Engineer at LIRR warranty maintenance support having to perform testing at night.

The most enjoyable part of my experience was as Field Engineer. to be able to resolve issues, as the warranty Supervisor, to be able to keep vehicles in service and as Technical Instructor, to be able to give the customer employees the information needed to operate and maintain equipment.

The workers (non management) are caring and nice people. The personal interest in people is definitely lacking company wide. Most people are unhappy with there current position, because of the working atmosphere management has developed.

Working on a New Program is no fun in the Aerospace world. Its like the blind is leading the blind. There are no real processes established. You are own your own to figure things out as you go.
