One of the last places you get out what you put in
Press Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 25 February 2017
A typical day at work would never really be considered typical anywhere else. Although it was a manufacturing job there was versatility in the jobs which were available as well as which machine you were stationed at for the duration of your shift. This led to a love of self discovery and learning. I operated several different types of press including mechanical and CNC brake presses The labour staff and management are very friendly, helpful, and understanding to the follies of new employees. The hardest part i found with the job was being on a three shift rotation, never being able to develop a routine outside of work, also due to the rotation there was always a not huge, but, consistent amount of clutter around the machines; though it did not interfere with job performance.I found the most enjoyable part of the job was learning to make new products and how to use new machines. As well as developing new programs for "new" and test components on the CNC presses. Also, the piecework system at NSC perpetually drove me to do better, faster, and smarter in my everyday work and developed my skills as a responsible employee.
