Lazer operator, Machine set up and operate, Kalamazoo, MI - May 6, 2015
A typical day started at 3:30 pm until 2:30 am for our 4 day (Mon. - Thur.) second shift. I'd generally take over the lazer machine and operate for 10 hours minus lunch and 2 breaks. I was sent to class to learn the lazer operations. I enjoyed working with most all the co-workers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with those few co-workers that didn't do their job then wanted me to stand up for them as their 2nd shift union steward. The most enjoyable part of the job was sense of accomplishment ~ making the parts ~and seeing the finished product (bleachers/stadium seating) and bragging about the parts I had in making it to family and friends.
