Hardworking, Humor and Hard Hours
Scenic Carpenter Assistant (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – March 9, 2018
I worked at the University of Michigan Flint as a scene shop assistant under a work study program. I would typical help with set building; cutting wood, painting, welding etc. I would work around 3 days a week and got the chance to learn some very valuable skills in shop working. Though I didn't have many hours a week, it was very strenuous work; heavy lifting, working with metals and woods for hours straight. The management was and still is great at what they do and have worked there for 20 years or so. The management team also had a great sense of humor about things.
The hardest part of the job was the start because I had never worked with tools before, but I quickly caught on.
The most enjoyable part was being in a different atmosphere and learning how to use tools.
