I enjoyed my time at Team Fishel. It was hard work, but I didn't mind. I worked as a contractor for the local gas company, on the metal side. So essentially I was a pipeliner, and it was great work. A typical day at work consisted of planning with my foreman, working together with the crew to get the job done. Whether it was lifting and carrying sandbags to helping the welder, to coordinating with everyone to lower pipe into the ground, we worked safely and efficiently.
The management held regular safety meetings, and seemed knowledgeable in the goingons of the company. They shared with the employees our production numbers and what we needed to do to do better.
The hardest part of the job for me was probably working in the hot Arizona sun, as I wasn't used to it. However I enjoyed working with my crew and it was satisfying work.
Usually worked through lunch, long hot days
