no need to go into detail on what you do or where you work. im just curious about this.
today was my first day at my new spot. i was nervous of course. not sure of whats what..
anyway, i have to say that this job is gravy.
i honestly dont understand how they pay what they pay for the department i am in....
im in quality. have been in quality for a long time(got laid off a few months back and went back into the auto shop)...
so, they started me out at 65 cents less per hour than what i was making at my last quality job and it took me 3 years to get to that wage. so i am 65
cents under that in my first day.
there is more brain work to this one over the last but it is gravy....
i know there is more to it than what i saw today but its gonna be gravy too. i know the guy at the desk beside me. we worked together at the other
spot. he got laid off long before i did and has been at the new spot. he has been filling me in about it and he said what you see is it. no hidden,
i lucked out cause when i went to apply at this place, this guy was walking out the door to go on break so he turned around and walked back in and
threw my name out there. it worked cause i got it.
he told me before i even started that about 50% of the job is out on the floor with the mics and calipers. checking ID. checking OD. verifying heat
treats and such. about 30% of the job is in the office writing reports and such. interplant emails and things like that. about 20% is making myself
available to people on the production floor. checking their work and so on.
so i have to say i dig the job and i dig the pay. mon-fri 7-3:30
at the end of the month if you have not missed a day or clocked in or out late you get a $50 bonus on your check. every pay period(bi weekly) if you
have not missed any days or clocked in or out late you get 1.5 hours of paid time off.
just curious about others.
do you like your job? does it suck? it is demanding in any way?
just feel like chatting.
