Manufacturing Specialist, West Jordan, UT - January 16, 2018
This job was difficult to get the hang of in the beginning. The production was very different than anything I have ever done. Processing of silicon wafers turned into semiconductors, which were then used to fabricate computer chips. Gases, chemicals, photosynthesis, metals, and etching processes were all used, In many instances the pace of work was very slow, and we were given a lot of time for breaks. I felt happy in the job for many years, but realized that my career advancement was lacking. In the end, the plant was shut down because tools and machines were outdated, and production was being moved to Asia were plants were much more high-tech. Myself, along with everyone else, were forced to look for other places to work.
