I enjoy working on jobs I am trained to do.
Machinist / leadhand (Current Employee) – North Sydney, NS – 28 January 2013
A typical day at Marine Atlantic starts with a saftey meeting regarding safe work and job tasks and team assignments.I ensure proper saftey requirments are met and proper tools and equipment are on site , job may be anything from welding pipes , working on deisel engines or machining parts and fabricating equipment for site to ensure all jobs are preformed safely and in a timely manner.
I learn on a daily basis that saftey and communacation are key factors to preform any and all jobs. Management at Marine Atlantic can range from Captians , Chiefs , or shore base supervisers , I have worked with all management levels to preform many different tasks , i also work with many different co-workers from , machinists , millwrights , welders , electricians and ship employees. All employees at Marine Atlantic are highly skilled and great people to work with. The hardest part of my job would be from time to time working in a confined space and fridget weather conditions.
The most enjoyable part of my job is when i complete a machined part I have been assigned to manufacture and knowing it has been machined properly and to the best of my ability.
pros are knowing i have a steady job to go to everyday, also medical benefits
the cons of my job would be that there are limitations for advancement within the company.
