My average days involved various jobs for completion, whether it was inventorying salvaged components from the defunct areas, managing tape backups once a month, or replacing faulty fans on cooling units.
During my time at INEOS, I learned how to use a soldering iron to remove and install fans. I also learned how to take tape backups for Sun Microsystems computers, and replace components on various models. On the software site, I learned how to draw and distribute graphics for both the NativeWindow and Experion control programs.
My manager was inspiring. He always tried to introduce new tasks to keep me busy when needed.
My co-workers were friendly and fun to work with. I found areas of leisure and work to relate to my co-workers, which isn't always easy for me.
The hardest part of the job was balancing time requirements for various tasks. Sometimes, I would be waiting on prerequisites for graphics, but have no other graphics or hardware work to do in the meantime.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be the work taking backups and creating graphics. I felt accomplished having a regular responsibility when taking and verifying graphics, as well as working to requirements when making graphics - both time requirements and specific design requests.
Overall, I enjoyed my overall time at INEOS both as a temp and as a permanent member of staff. If they asked me back, I would happily work for them again.
Good hours, interesting work, fair pay and holidays, cheap Starbucks :-)
