Pros: good insurance, annual tool allowance, and people
Cons: working conditions
The beginning of the shift is where information is turned over from the opposite shift. Any major problems are discussed and, if needed, work orders are assigned. I will then proceed to my row and start answering calls. My day consists of troubleshooting and repairing any mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, or pneumatic problems. I am also responsible for any touch-ups or faults on the Fanuc robots and the die presses on my row. I will also help the other mechanics between calls. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the conditions. There is excessive heat, fiber glass, and hydraulic oil everywhere. The most enjoyable part of the job is the continual learning opportunities.
