Very productive work and could always stay busy
Floating Machinist (Former Employee), Estherville, IAMay 22, 2013
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: short breaks
At my job we would bend, grind, CNC, weld, and assemble multiple parts to create catepillar and john deer tractor rims. A typical day of work would consist of just comming in and either finishing the order we have or switch over all machines and start a new order. I learned alot about personal safety when working with heavy machinery, welders, and hoist. I noticed a chain of command, like if we did not have enough parts to assemble a wheel . we would have to move on to another order we could finish. Orders would be from a few parts to a couple hundred depending on what the buyer wanted.the hardest part of the job was probably the stress of not having enough parts to complete orders. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people i worked with. we always had a good attitude and could joke around while still getting the goal of the day accomplished.
