They offered me an opportunity to dig my teeth into an exciting new field that holds my interests deeply, paid my training and certificates, love the work and what I was working on...at least while work lasts
Supposedly have all these jobs lined up but can't put me on any of them, I grew rusty and dull sitting on unemployment and working little kid jobs for 15+ months at a time to survive the long layoffs, asked to be pushed into the shop in the down time so I can keep learning but because a family member works in one of the shops they were worried about "nepotism" Yet there are multiple large family dynasties within the company and within even the same shops, like the Powers for instance...there's a lot of overtime being paid that could be alleviated if they brought some local field hands in to supplement the shop
Advice to Management
Not sure I know where or how to criticize, perhaps if you hire a green hand you can work them at the shop when there is down time in the field so they don't become rusty, this field is absolutely fascinating, I love the work I did there but how can one build and learn this career if they don't hear or do anything connected to it for months or years at a time?
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sulzer Hickham.
Straightforward interview process, direct questions, and friendly people. Was referred by a friend who works there and is very happy. Was told that people are expected to work hard but the facility is exceptionally clean and safe. Management rewards hard work.
