Challenging and rewarding while expanding creative design aptitude. It was a lot of fun too!
Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) – Hickman AR, Houston TX, USA – August 20, 2013
On this assignment, most days were easy going but some were very demanding, as with most engineering departments. With the guidance of a globally diversified group I gained a wealth of experiences and knowledge related to maintaining and improving equipment and systems. I had great management and their full support. They treated me with respect and fairly, that was a major plus. The most difficult part of the position was the engineers did not always know exactly what they wanted designed but could convey the alteration of conceptual or finite designs. Eventually we arrived on common ideas or compromised. The people were great to work with because we all strive to have enjoyable days. On Fridays we took turn bringing four dozen donuts. That was always something to look forward to. Overall evaluation, I would do it all over again!
We had Christmas parties every year at a riverboat casino.
The health insurance was slightly expensive with middle tear benifits.
