A typical day at work would be getting at work by 7:00 AM sharp. Start the day off with reviewing what we did the day before, what accidents happened, what we are doing that current day, and how to prevent accident from occurring. I learned new things on a day to day basis, whether it was picking up a new skill such as brazing or a new form of welding, or learn how to build a different unit. I enjoyed learning everything that I did there in the plant. Management was okay but not as professional as I was hoping for, same goes for the co-workers. I found that people who had been there for a couple of years were practically granted "Tenure" giving them such a feeling of comfortability that they feel they can do anything, or say anything, at any time. The hardest part of the job would be to complete tasks in said tact time. That being said, it was not hard in anyway to do everything I was expected to and then some. The most enjoyable part of that job was teaching people how to use the skill (brazing) I had learned there and the best approaches and techniques for each unit on task.
