fun place to work, people were fun to know great work environment
Jet Engine Mechanic (Former Employee) – Naval Air Station Lemoore, CA – April 28, 2016
Everyday we would walk the flight line as a squadron to ensure no debris could damage the jets, we ensured ground safety, performed jet maintenance on aircraft and we were quick and thorough at getting aircraft back to their flying and maneuvering capabilities. I learned proper hand signals to communicate with the pilot and ground personnel, how to conduct jet repairs, corrosion treatment and prevention. The organization is well run, or shop supervisor gave us our orders and the maintenance office would give them theirs. My supervisor was effective at delegating tasks to each individual so that all necessary repairs were completed on time. The most difficult part of this job would have to be installing a new engine into the jet. It takes patience, care, strength and precision. The people I worked with were always friendly and funny and we all enjoyed ourselves.One thing I always loved was getting to sit on top of the jet with my fellow coworkers, turning the jet up on power and hearing that beast roar as you checked to make sure the problem was fixed.
