Pros: great cafeteria
Cons: standing in one place pretty much the entire time.
First thing we do is have a group meeting. Talk about any problems, concerns, quality, tooling issues. Work for two hours then a group stretch and off to the cafeteria for breakfast. Back to work, making pieces, changing molds, cleaning/refreshing mold base. Lunch after 3 more hours of work. Stretch again. Come back do it again for another hour, another – more... break then one more hour of work.
I've learned how operate a few wax presses and adjust, tweak, clean and fix these molds properly so that they produce a high quality piece with no defects at all.
Management is organized, nice, not strict but fair. Knowledgeable of whats going on. My co-workers are fine, everyone respects each-others wide variety of race, language, and interests. Everyone works hard.
Hardest part about my job would have to be getting a certain mold to produce the way you need it to come out when it's not working properly. You need to try a number of solutions until you get the piece to come out correctly. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the pieces are all coming out perfectly and you have no worries. Also the stretching before and after breaks I enjoy because it helps your body out when your doing pretty much the same movements over and over. – less
