Welder in Brighouse:
Pros: The people I work with and pleasant.
Cons: The amount of work that has to be produced and expected to keep at a pace witch isn't possible. The time it takes to do jobs is not possible with faulty equipment and bad organisation. No new tooling. Machines breakdown constant. They make you feel of little worth. Quick to pass the blame. Have done things which are illegal but work tell you to get on with it. Damaged tooling for machines. How they teach you is leaving you on your own without proper guidance and or drawings.
Welder in Cape Town:
"It's ok I love my job."
