Productive work place with ping pong table
Machinist II (Current Employee) – Airway Heights, WA – August 24, 2018
A normal start of shift is doing turn overs with a person that ran the machine and parts before you. you get paid two 10 min breaks and two 30 min breaks taken anytime your crew has agreed upon. depending on the machine you can have cycle times from 1 min to 18 min. depending on the crew you're on breaks consist of ping pong, cards, smoke break, etc. There is always group events outside of work and activities. A hard day at work is when a machine is not working correctly or having to many managers trying to speed up or control a process for that day because it needs to be shipped. you can only go as fast as the machine can go.
