Relaxed and Mostly Slow Paced
Interned under operating engineers, which just involved watching and maintaining Boilers, Cooling Towers, Large AC units, and pumps.Typical day involved making rounds at the beginning of the shift, moving materials or cleaning, then a last set of rounds to end. Experiences WILL differ.
Pros
Commutable
Cons
Grunt work, if you don't have work ethic.

Basically a day at work
A typical day at work starts early in the morning befor the sun rises and ends late right after the sun goes down. We do not get breaks we are not allowed to eat inside of classrooms.

Pleasant environment
- Typical day Always a little different than the previous testing areas and always a chance to learn more and become better at the job.

- Learned more about people and new and better ways to do the job.

- Management is knowledgeable and always willing to help.

- Co- workers are pleasant and knowledgeable for the most part.

- Hardest part of the job is make sure all documents are in order and papers are filled out properly.

- Most enjoyable part of the job is when the applicants understand what I am trying to show them and then watch them do it.
Pros
It's only a part time job
