Two exciting weeks in the workshops done
Time just fly by and at this moment we’ve just finshed our weeks as apprentices in the workshops all around the plant. In two weeks time has everyone of us new trainees followed certain products and their flows to get to know the company at the core. But before entering the real workshops we got a couple of intriduction days in the workshop which belongs to GKN’s secondary education and we got the oppurtunity to get some hands-on experince. We can proudly tell you that we’re now able to turn and mill by ourselves (very easy geometries, but still…).
However, I spent my first week in my workshop togheter with the operators at the differrent machnies and processing steps. And I learnt alot, but I’m far from being an expert as the guys and girls working on the floor truly are. The last week I’ve spent more time in the offices since I been working with the product manufacturing engineering team, the link between the withe collar and the bluecollar work. My collequges on the other hand have done all sorts of things since we’ve been at different workshops where different type of products are manufactured.
I’m sure of that I can speak for all of us when I say that we are starting to get ready to face the world of GKN as trainees! But before you’ll read more about our first rotations at our so called home deparments you’ll get the chance to travel with us, and where we’ll go remains unkown until we see you next time!
PS. If our beloved readers would like to get to know us new young gradautes better, there are now presentations about ourselves up on the blog.
