I will say that I liked my job at Alston. Manager stinks though. Pay was ok. Weekends off except big downtime for outages. Not a paid lunch break 30 mins as well.

Worked a lot of hours, but had a chance to wear many different hats and learned a lot in the process. Good people, good camaraderie. Things went downhill after financial difficulties, then we were acquired by GE in 2015 and everything changed.

My day at works begins with testing for plant entrance requirements. Meeting daily with site leadership and briefing crew or preforming testing on my own. Usual day when testing is 12-16 hours due to a limited time at the facility. When leading a group of usually 10-12 men on an inspection when the HP/IP/LP/Gen rotors are being removed make for a long outage and 12-14 hour days, arranging for material and logistics for item coming and leaving. Work out doors in weather below zero and above 100 degrees for 45 days. Working on units that make $450/per MW hour on turbines that produce 250-800 MW.
Points positifs
Great work experience and training
Points négatifs
long periods away from home

Was a temporary position but found it to be boring but interesting. Was bought out by GE, so Alstom is no more. Don't really have an option as I only spent 7 mth there.

Alstom was an somewhat stressful but rewarding employer until GE bought them out. Once the merger took place GE decided to liquidate some parts of the business and relocate others to subcontracted company to reduced overhead costs and pay their executives more.
Points positifs
Free lunches from time to time, family atmosphere
Points négatifs
Bad management under new ownership

Working from Home Office tends to lend to more hours worked but very convenient to getting things done when they arise. GE is very fast pace and competitive. There's a fairly good sense of Team throughout the company and while the company is experiencing some issues currently, they will reconfigure and move on quickly. The position is challenging and I like a challenge, it energizes me to succeed in a tough environment.

I started in Jan 1970 when they built a plant in St. Cloud, Mn. right after coming home from the Army. They were on hiring vets. They provide training and benefits. We assemble generators and gas turbines for power plants all over the world. Work there until plant closed in 1983. Then they offer to transfer and move family to Richmond, Va. This a repair company for generators and gas turbines. They paid for all expenses, moving, selling house and then finding one for my family of seven. Once here and then starting to work. Consisted of 12 hour days and traveling to different power plants to repair the units. Then in 1994 they set up a department to recondition gas turbine blades. I apply and got responsible of helping to set up the different stages. Sent to Baden, Swiz. to view there operations. Overall I learned and grew a lot whit this company.
Points positifs
Godd vactions and health benifits.
Points négatifs
Alot of overtime when I moved to Richmond, no family time.

Working for a global company means endless opportunities. If you want to travel, they can make it happen. If you want to take a class, they can help. Big companies have big benefits.
