Pros: it was a steady schedule
Cons: manufacturing lost business, layoffs
Work was production welding of various sheet metal parts and tubing. I would recieve my work load schedule sheet and gather all materials need. I would then weld and perform other duties as needed. While working in the manufacturing floor I learned how to TIG weld, spot weld, acid clean parts and how to inventory. I was lead by a great leadman and supervised by production managers that did not put to much pressure. Every one I worked with had an upbeat personality and in turned made the work place a pleasant place to be at. The hardest times of work was when we needed certain parts to finish a product and the only way to get it was to look for it ourselves or have parts rushed to get made. Every day was an enjoyable day for me, I kept my production up and I began getting unexpected raises that I wasn't suppose to recieve yet.
