Started out in the Fork Shop as a Mechanic. Job responsibility is to repair and maintain the powered
industrial trucks for the company. Understanding the propane powered Nissan sit down trucks on how
they operate and function. Raymond electric high lift trucks and how the electrical and hydraulics work.
Knowing how to read the wiring schematics for these vehicles to properly diagnose and repair problems.
This job function was my responsibility for one year.
A new mechanized systems was added and I advanced to the EM (electro-mechanical) Department as
an automated robotic system technician. Job responsibility is to repair and maintain the machine, come
up with ways to make the machine run more efficiently, and diagnose system issues. Mainly dealt with
on-site calls to various parts of the system for troubleshooting issues. Being able to troubleshoot
electrical systems was extremely important. Knowing the function and proper alignment of photo eye
sensors. Knowing the function and operation of 3-phase 480 volt motors and how to properly test and
repair them. Welding and soldering were among a few more of my skills at this job.
