Hard working with many projects to learn and sharpen skills on
1st/2nd Year Millwright apprentice (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 17 juillet 2013
-A typical day would start with a saftey meeting, then managment would prioitize projects and would assign staff to complete the more urgent work orders
-I learned proper rigging, welding and trouble shooting techniques. Was taught how to properly lock/tag out equipment. To write down and summarize all work being done on equipment and to do all the safety check list that went along with the job at hand.
-My two immediate supervisor's were absoulte rolemodels and mentors to myself and the other apprentices
-I worked with a great team, never any bad blood or drama in the group
-The hardest part of the job was having multiple projects on the go, it wasn't uncommon to have 3 or 4 jobs on the go. Every couple hour's you had to re-evaluate which projects were more important and work on those.
-The most enjoyable part of the job was trouble shooting proplems. When it's your solution they chose to solve a problem, it's something to be proud of
Lot's of hours, Typically worked six days a week
