Pros: I had a job
Cons: Too many early days
A typical day at work for me started every morning about 6:30am, we would a safety meeting to discuss safety issues or concerns about the day before. I would then go to my work area and prepare my work area so that I may begin working. My job was to inspect the recliner brackets for defects. I would make sure there was no weld splatters, high welds, low welds, weld porosities, etc. I would take a 15 minute break at about 8, I would use that time to use the restroom or get something to drink if I needed to. I would take a lunch break about 10:30am and it was 45 minutes. After lunch I would work on and complete the rest of my work by 2:15pm so that I may have time to clean my work area thoroughly before getting off at 2:45pm.
I have learned how the thoroughly observe and check materials for defects while working for PPG. The management staff that was over me was very unorganized and didn't know much about the job as I did. My co-workers was ok but the management tried to turn us against one another to save their jobs. The hardest part of my job was not getting the hours I would have like to have gotten. The most enjoyable part of the job was to interact with people of different ethnicities while completing my daily tasks that was required of me.
