Work study (Current Employee) – Hutchinson, MN – April 11, 2016
I was allowed to work around any problems I had in my personal life and I wasn't penalized for it. I just had to call in and let them know I wasn't going to make it in. It became more strict towards my graduation, but nothing that didn't need to be done since they needed their workers to show up.
welder (Former Employee) – Willmar, MN – November 30, 2015
On a typical day we would be welding on various things such as trailers, grills, flat bed trucks and many more. We would use Mig and Tig primarily. I learned alot about welding on different types of metal and how best to prep the metal I was going to be welding on. I also learned how to use machinery such as a break press, shear, band saw and many more. It was difficult at first learning all the different ways to operate the machines. I really enjoyed how my supervisors were very willing to help me learn and become a better welder.

Instructor (Former Employee) – Willmar, MN – December 22, 2013
Students attending a technical college are eager to learn a skill. Being able to work with students of all ages was rewarding. Each day I could see students growing, learning and gaining confidence. Ridgewater College gave instructors guidelines but allowed us to teach in our own way. My colleagues and the administration were wonderful.
Overall excellent place to work and helped guide me in my career path
