Making glass requires a 2000 degree temperature
Maintenance mechanic/Inspector/Supervisor (Former Employee) – El Monte, CA – June 15, 2015
Working in a glass factory has different requirements. Since the glass has to remain liquid, the temperature is always hot. We worked a seven day rotating schedule. One week of graveyard, one week of swing, and one week of days. There were four shifts, and if you stayed long enough you usually got to know everyone. I felt I had extended family. Which made it easy to help in the positions I held.
There was always a week off for Christmas and the New Year.
Temperature was very hot
