    All the ones I hired.

    ... my older Mits doesn't either....

    Can't recall for sure on the Dynapath's?

    I have ran mostly Fanucs and Yasnacs other than a few oddballs on CNC mills.

    I remember working 3rd shift at a shop, I was bored, had my 3 machines up and running, long run times in each, so I was sitting on a stool reading a book about Turret Lathes. Got my ass reamed up down left and right. I thought it was because I was reading about Turret Lathes. Found out later the supervisor didn't know what one was anyway...

    Sorry, just thought of that when I read your post.

    How much longer did you last after that? I think I would have just walked out.

    We're looking for someone right now. Just like they teach you in kindergarten: Be honest, and attitude is everything. It's weird when you get applicants that act like they really don't want a job...

    My favorite was one that we shook his hand and asked what his background was?
    "I've got a felony."
    ....
    Not what we were asking but thank-you.

    I used to tailor my resume for different size companies.
    Smaller company = less B.S. straight to the point. Heavy on the boiler plate stuff...Fanuc, Yasnac, Siemens, Powermill, Gibbscam, etc. Setup, operate, offsets, troubleshoot...etc.
    Most likely the guy who is gonna interview you is familiar with all of what I mentioned. Don't try to bullshit your way through ...you will be found out. I used to bring my calculator to these interviews. If asked speeds and feeds....here you go.
    Larger company....the person who you need to get your resume past first quite possibly doesnt know the difference between a lathe and a mill. Be 100% on your spelling and grammar. Add a few things about Team sports, boy scouts, volunteer work, continuing ed...that sort of stuff is what the HR person finds interesting. Then add all the stuff from above. That is what will get you the interview with the person that the HR person passes your resume to.
    Always add any additional duties such as...." was responsible for locking up and securing the facility at the end of my shift"
    Doesnt seem like much....but it shows someone trusted you.... certainly trusted you more than the ones they didnt give a key to. First aid / first responder training.
