Demanding but Skilled workplace
District Instrument Mechanic C (Former Employee) – Strasburg, VA – January 21, 2016
Can be a fun place to work. Busy seasons like any place.
I would love to still be working there.
Management still practices nepotism, however.
Best part was working in a different part of the state, or even different state each day.
I learned quite a bit about pipeline operations, different pipeline meters, regulators and gas analysis equipment.
Hardest part of the job was the bureaucratic politics. I'm a mechanic, a troubleshooter. I deal in logic and equipment. People, for me, are hard to deal with, that was the hardest part. The political office stuff.
Benefits, Training, Good Union Pay, Travel, Freedom to work alone
Bureaucracy in the office.
