Definitely do some research into the companies you work for. If they deal with temps on a regular basis. Proceed with caution. EVERY single company I have ever done tech work for that has used temps has a VERY high turnover rate for good reason!

Dont stay too long in 1 job position.
"Hubbell is a good place to work if you actually work."
Good place to work with advancement opportunities if you show you can work hard.
Go into another field. The jobs are few these days and for what is out there, the pay is horrible.
"Interesting work enviroment."
Pros: Electronics manufacturing is a varied process requiring a variety of talents to do successfully. In order for small batch electronic manufacturing things must be incredibly well organized with strong processes in place, understood by employees, and implemented with utmost attention to detail. I enjoy finding the best way to accomplish at task and work my way to a point where my operation works on its own.
Cons: Everything I stated previously that is required for a good job isn't present at work. Lack luster performance of direct managers is causing all areas of production feel added strain through lack of direction.
"Always New Things."
In a R&D Lab there are always new projects, always new technologies, always new ideas. This keeps you fresh, keeps you engaged and keeps you on top of your game.

Be patient and calm. Do your job well. Do not destroy tarnish or metal coatings if working installing something. When you need to create a good product install things well things delicately and not with any harshness.
