Ray came to Symbol from a completely unrelated job - he worked as a private security guard. He was tired of working 3rd shifts, always working on the weekends and holidays. He wanted a career with a more traditional schedule and one that would provide him with better job security. Ray went online to research his options, found Symbol and right away signed up for the tour. After his visit with David at Symbol, Ray knew this was the right fit for him. His favorite part of the training was the hands-on shop experience and the knowledge and experience of his instructor. The instructor had a good way of explaining the concepts in a way that everyone in class could understand. Ray is a go-getter, and sent out dozens of resumes to manufacturing companies until he found the job that he wanted. He now works on a 4-axis lathe, manufacturing parts using different types of steel. Ray has two older children, one still in school. Having a future in CNC gives Ray the confidence that he can support his family for many years to come. Ray's advice to others is, "If you like working with your hands and doing inspection, do it now rather than waiting until your later years." Ray has come a long way. Congrats!
