Process Engineer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Process Engineer in Plymouth:
`"$Continuing education."`
College education is only a starting point, it's critical to continue learning constantly.

Process Engineer in San Diego:
`"$Automation."`
Automation, improvement and people skill are the biggest factors to success in this career.

Process Engineer in Philadelphia:
`"$Chemical Engineering is not what it's cracked up to be."`
I wish that I would have been told before I started college that people who are smart and good at math can go to college for something other than engineering. Chemical plant engineering is done in China and India primarily now, so the dreams of designing a chemical plant are few and far between. If you are good at math and technology go to school for finance or computer science/engineering. These fields seem to have a lot more to offer. As far as being a process engineer goes it's typically a 50+ hour work week, off hour phone calls and some occasional weekends. The job itself is mostly paperwork. Writing procedures, writing quality statements and writing up statements to confirm certain types of equipment can be used in manufacturing.

Process Engineer in Boise:
`"$Do Your Research For Your Career."`
I had heard when I started school that Chemical Engineers were in high demand and I thought it would be easy to get a high paying job. It went well for me and I love the work I am able to do, but there were other degrees that would have yielded higher return on my time and money education investment.
