Intern, Parma, OH - June 2, 2016
Hours were up to me, as long as it was 8 hours for the whole day including the 1 hour lunch. A normal day at work was up to me, for the most part I spent my days inside the machine shop going through drawers organizing and taking inventory of whatever was inside them. Or some days I could just spend all day at my office space typing up the spreadsheets needed by other employees. I had no real co-workers I could relate, since I was a 20 something year old with little machine shop experience V.S. guys working in that field for years. They were all friendly, but I was just to young to relate. I did have a boss I reported to, and sometimes I went to his boss for questions if I had any. The Hardest part of the job was the temperature inside the machine shop. The air coming in from the garage doors and the exits were all we had for cooling. So a 80* degree day felt more like 90 inside the shop. Otherwise if you can withstand the heat then its no problem. The best part of the job was the freedom I had and the 1 hour lunch. I reported to my boss when I needed to, and he might visit me once a week just for a minute or two just to see if I'm doing fine. But otherwise I just worked all day and could keep to my pace. The one hour lunch was more than enough time for me to relax, and I could eat inside my car if I wanted to instead of the break room we had. Overall it was a simple job that I was able to complete with my little experience in the field. Some days I just wish it was a littler bit cooler.
