Biomerics

Electrical Surgical Assembly Line Worker

June - August 2020 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

I loved the learning experience about the manufacturing process and the products. Everyone was super nice and helped me pick up the tasks quickly, and were very understanding about my circumstances. I was really grateful for my time there, I enjoyed it a lot. I worked hard and learned pretty quickly, so they said that I could come back and move up in roles as I learned more information and took more classes, which I intend to follow through on. It was a fantastic experience, and I consider myself very lucky to have had it, especially during a tough economic time. Biomerics was a fantastic place to work, and I highly recommend the experience.

What I wish was different

I wish the hours had been a little more conducive to a more regular schedule. My shift every weekday was 7 am to 3 pm, and oftentimes I came in early to work some overtime, so I was clocked in at 5 am until 3 pm almost every weekday during the summer. Since I'd just graduated high school, I still had friends in town, and I still lived at home since the commute was close enough. I would get home around 4, but only stay up until about 7 because of how early I'd need to get up the next morning, so it was challenging socially. There was also a lot of sitting involved, and some of the tasks along the line occasionally hurt my hands. All in all though, these were easily overlooked and I managed to find enough time between work, family, friends, and healthy sleeping habits, and my hands always fine by the time I got home.

Advice
