A typical day at my current job starts at 6 a.m. and consists of a bevy of repetitive tasks. During my tenure, I've learned to operate various machines which allow me to complete each process within our department. These processes are nylon coating, glass bead blasting, passivation and screen printing.
As of Dec. 1, our facility was acquired by another company who will be "transitioning" our operation within the next 12-15 months to Juarez, Mexico, subsequently shutting down our plant and leaving all current employees without jobs.
The hardest part of my job is the repetitive motion and 8 hours of standing on my feet.
The most enjoyable part of my job are my co-workers in my department. It's a very diverse bunch and we all get along quite well. They make going in to work on a daily basis worthwhile.
