Unproductive and monotonous workplace
NDT Technician (Former Employee) – Stocksbridge, ENG – May 28, 2014
A typical day at work proved to be the same as the last and no more different than the following day would be. I learnt what the job required in relation to the qualifications needed to do my job effectively and thoroughly. In relation to what I learnt unrelated to my job was how to work as part of a large team. There were normally around 16 colleagues on shift who had to work simultaneously as part of a live production line in order for things to operate to maximum efficiency. I was the Quality Control technician at the end of that line, and my attention to detail had to be pristine in order to comply with customer specifications. I was in a position integral to the quality assurance we were giving to our customers.
The hardest part of the job I would say was concentration. As we worked a 20 shift pattern including 12 hour shifts it was key to keep concentration throughout.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the challenging aspects of the job. The mathematics and science behind what we were doing always kept me on my toes, and I would often challenge myself by working equations out in my head/jotting on paper, before later checking them using the correct software required.
