Typical day consisted of going over the unit swaps on microsoft excel, plan out the trailer moves on the yard. Inspect the mule and do a complete yard check on trailers and units. Communicate with the operators and find out what they needed moved or what assistance i could give. I learned just how good i could back up semi trailers in close quarters, how to severly multi task, chemical substances and how my mistakes could effect an entire plant. How to communicate throughout the entire refinery, how to pay real close attention to the most minute details. The most unique skills i learned had to be the tasks that my operators did. In my spare time when there was nothing going on i would put on my PPE and shadow the operators in their processes throughout the units. The hardest part of working at MEMC was the type of work that had to be done. I was having to take 60 ft trailers and squeeze them within inches of each other and given very little space to do so. I had to transfer trailers loaded with explosive, toxic, and flamable contents throughout the refinery. But i most definately enjoyed my shift work, the co- workers and the work place. Very laid back people that i worked around on a daily basis and some of the best scenery you could find.
great pay, great shifts and overtime, great co- workers, and great bosses
honestly cant think of any cons in the work place or company
