My last six months consisted of testing and troubleshooting Redbox kiosks that came off the production line. The type of failures I encounted ranged from defective printed circuit boards, incorrect wiring, connectors put on the wrong locations, defective pc's, defective monitors, etc.
For the almost eights that I worked there, I learned a great deal – more... about how much the world has become so dependent on self-service kiosks. Everybody wants their products yesterday. Flextronics design team did a great job zoning in on customer demands.
The co-workers are like typical co-workers in most companies. You have those who are motivated by career, some by salary, some by the misery of others. But overall, I did find most co-workers to be team players. They were willing to help others in any capacity that was needed.
There really wasn't a hard part to my job. I am a fast learner so if there was a new task that I was given, I was trained by an engineer or another technician. I took very good notes, and always worked with a test manual for the product I was testing.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being given the opportunity to travel to other states to repair or build a new product. I also enjoyed the many ways management always found a way to rewards us for our excellent on-time delivery to our customers. – less
