Wyotech Students Tour Anderson's Bridgeville Facility
On Saturday March 10th, Bridgeville's General Manager of Product Support Bill Esterly hosted an open house for students set to graduate this spring from Wyotech Technical College in Blairsville, PA.
During a recent career fair Bill targeted several individuals that he wanted to pursue for technician positions in PA and WV.
Bill's plan was to bring the students in, show them our facility and show them what our shops are capable of.
Anderson Equipment Company plan's to hold these open house recruiting sessions to further encourage talented students to come and work for Anderson.
Service Manger Bill McGuire and HR Recruiter Reeny Katz joined in to help Bill host this event.
Anderson Equipment Hosts Open House for Tech Students
Anderson Equipment's Albany branch held an open house for SUNY Cobleskill on March 7, 2018. We invite the school and their students to participate in a day of activities. Our goal is to expose them to the industry and what Anderson techs accomplish on a daily basis. This particular session had 11 students and 2 instructors participate. We set up work stations in which they get hands on skills training. Each station is an hour long and we rotate them from station to station.
The stations for the Albany session:
- Tier 4 technology - Andy Nethercott did an overview of the Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 final engine. Students have to be able to identify key components on a Tier 4 engine.
- Hydraulic flows and pressures - We had the students work with AEC tech Cody Kietzmann utilizing a flow meter to set machine operating parameters for an Indeco hammer
- Machine Diagnostics - Albany service manager Steve McCagg bugged a Komatsu PC138 and then took the students through the machine monitor and showed them how to troubleshoot an issue.
- Undercarriage and ground engaging tools - Buffalo parts manager Glenn Bush explained to the students various types of undercarriage for track machines. He also reviewed the wear causes, measurements, and identification of common undercarriage components. Glenn reviewed the ESCO Ultralock tooth system for buckets and we have a little fun with the students by challenging them to change out the teeth on an ESCO bucket. They are timed for the event and the fastest time gets a T-shirt.
All of these open house sessions receive a lot of positive feedback. The instructors appreciate Anderson's time and effort and it also helps to reinforce the message of what to expect in the real world when they seek employment. The students enjoy themselves and generally go back to class with an renewed enthusiasm to learn.
