Coordinator/Instructor, Natural Gas Transmission and Distribution
"Things are going great here in Yuma. So far I love my job. It is a great stress free environment. I'm learning something new every day. You were absolutely correct when you said the gas jobs have great benefits and pay! On my first day of employment I received a pickup, cell phone and three credit cards - just to name a few plus the benefits are near unbeatable as far as I am concerned. I am definitely staying here until I retire! (If they still like me). I am still training for a couple more months, then I get my first promotion to Operator II, which will be very nice. Basically my job entails me to find, locate, and mark the pipeline when we get a one-call. Also, I perform routine maintenance on the compressor stations at Yuma and St. Francis. I will be going to all of the overhauls in the district - St. Francis, Hoxie, Ogallah, Levant, Yuma, and Otis. So I will be learning alot of things within the first year."
