You don't have to believe me, but my job – overhauling gas turbines, is incredibly interesting. Imagine, you're repairing a turbine, which just came in from an oil platform and you need to rebuild worn-out parts. At other times you can get your hands on inland turbine systems for transporting oil or natural gas. Every day something new and fantastic is happening at Solar Turbines. And it definitely isn't boring.
I decided to join Solar Turbines because of the company's clear vision. They know exactly where they're going long-term, not just worldwide, but specifically in the Czech Republic. The added value is huge, and when you know the business strategy of the company you can go to work every day knowing the reasoning behind what you do, and that the firm won't one day uproot and move.
Thanks to long-term work at Solar Turbines, I've built up my resume with useful experience. I also feel like it's a big advantage, and this isn't just me talking, but on every change and every project we work closely with our engineers, combining theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience.
