Manufacturing Engineer

June 2018 Rochester, NY
“All of my direct coworkers are fantastic and create a really great environment. I’ve been able to learn a lot about how things are manufactured for tooling and work-holding for cylindrical and bevel gear machining. I have the opportunity to get my hands in several different types of projects. After my initial co-op with them, I continued part time during school semesters and over the summer they offered me a full time job! They worked with me to work at an equivalent hourly rate for the salary they offered me ($59,000) to continue during the current semester. I was then able to get health insurance as my parents insurance stopped covering me on my 23rd birthday (in July); military insurance. I am required to work 20 hours to keep health insurance but my course work doesn’t take up all my free time so I’m usually able to do that with no issues and am able to do homework at work. ”
