Sentry Equipment Erectors
Assembly Mechanic and Pre-Wire Electrician
June 2008 — Present
I started working there fresh out of high school. I stared working in the paint and finishing department and was later moved to the assembly area. I currently am now a assembly mechanic and pre-wire electrician. I build various types of products such as case conveyor, empty and full tabletop conveyor, bulk depalitizers for glass bottles and cans. Also with case switch lines and case palitizers. They also include robotics on the case palitizers as well. My main function is the adding of electrical components of various types such as photoeyes and proxs. I also wire up various forms of push button stations with PLCs and panels for the conveyor and machinery.
Clean work is what I like to do. Making my work as neat as possible and also being correct are my main goals. We run various cables and pipe in this field and I want the customers to have a very functional component but for it to also be presentable. Because clean work is easy for customers to work on and always produces a better product. I take the extra time to make sure everything is as strait as possible so that it is not confusing for our customers employes and so they have no problems fixing issues that may come up. I tend to think I work well with others and have no problem with explaining things to fellow employees so that they can do their job better and do the most quality work possible.
In addition to my career at Sentry I also am a volunteer firefighter in Forest, VA. I have various certifications in the field and I am also a Virginia State Certified EMT-Basic.
