get to work wait for forman to come to shop to give me and partner our jobs for the morning it was usually two or three little jobs we could do between calls we would get to fix something on the production line. we would spend the morning cutting welding or looking for something that we would have to install at lunch time when the production line was – more... down so we would not lose any production, after lunch was a little slower and we just covered break downs for production. weekends was when we did our preventive maintenance and safety checks also this is when we replaced equipment that broke down during the last weeks production that we could not get to because of safety or time constraints the hardest part of this job was dealing with management usually when thing go wrong and they want production and they throw safety out the window to get their line running. this is where i have had problems with management and it made my job hard. the best part of my job was going home in one piece knowing that i did my best to help the company i worked for be profitable at the end of the day – less
