Not your typical manufacturing
Lead Process Technician (Former Employee) – Torrington, CT – August 27, 2012
I spent almost 11 years at FuelCell, and really worked very hard for them. I began as what they call a 'Process Operator' finished my time there as a Lead Process Technician, working on second shift in the Catalyst Extrusion Department. We had three extrusion machines, and in the four years leading up to that I had worked closely with the engineers to pioneer the process that lead to having those three machines (running on three shifts). Additionally, I operated hydraulic presses, hydraulic shears, drove a forklift.
All the performance reviews I got rated me as Outstanding. The work was VERY interesting, and challenging. I loved my job.
intense, cutting edge work which hopefully will lead to a clean energy producing system
they terminated my employment abruptly (along with many other senior technicians) to save money
