What makes your job rewarding?

One of the great things about ATS is we all work as a team. It feels like a family.

I like that every day is different, and I get to wear many different hats. Some days I’ll be repairing a conveyer, on others I’ll troubleshoot an electrical problem or work on pumps.

When I finish a job for the customer and they thank me, I know that they really appreciate what I did. Sometimes they’ll even email my site manager to compliment my work.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to work on cars, go to car shows, and go hunting.

What makes your job rewarding?

I like that I have the freedom to take on new responsibilities. And I have the support to learn new skills.

I’m really contributing here. One of my proudest moments was finding a gap in data analytics and figuring out a new process to fill it.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I love to play volleyball, read, and walk my dog.

What makes your job rewarding?

One of the best things about my job is the people I work with. Everyone gets along and people are always willing to help.

I love that I learn something new every day about my trade. What I’ve learned has helped me do things like troubleshooting and maintaining a 10-speed transmission dies for automotive companies.

What do you like to do outside of work?

In my everyday life I like to do things outdoors and spend time with my family.
