The people are great and the environment is okay, but the job is stressful and leaves little time for family.
MACHINE ATTENDANT (Current Employee) – Lonoke, AR – April 15, 2015
Change over plates on the machine to setup for the types of shells being run. Make sure you graphite the rails, fill up the hopper, empty scrap pan, keep track of track, fill out audit sheet to display the amount of shell that were inspected, types of scrap material disposed of, and the variety of defects found. Inspect primed shells for external/internal defects. Notify quality of any problem areas and change out plates between dumps if necessary. Be sure to tag every cart with a tracer ticket to help in keeping track of the process order and switch buggies every time a different brand of shell is being run to prevent having mixed carts. Place tickets (tracer, hold-up, release, mrp, etc) to ensure all steps are completed and the log can be updated. Clean up your area and notify relief person of any issues.
Great people, decent environment, fair pay, valuable work experience
hot, dusty, little chance of career advancement, and lack of flexibility in your work schedule.
