Hi everyone, it’s Ross the intern…just kidding, it’s Jake the intern. I just started here at Setpoint and have found that it is unlike any other company I have ever worked for. This company is a tight knit group of friends. The company is more like a family than a group of co-workers. Because of this, it is very easy to come in and feel accepted. You don’t have worry about what you say or if you will look stupid.
My first day of work was quite hectic. Roger took me around and introduced me to everybody. I experienced information overload and forgot most everybody’s names. “I am sorry, I’m not that good with names, work with me.” Everyone seems really nice and easy to get along with.
Jumping back into SolidWorks has been a little bit challenging. It seems like I am learning a lot more than I am remembering. Thankfully there are a lot people here who are nice enough to help me learn. Bryan, Justin, Mark, Bob, and Nate have all helped me get back into the swing of things. If you have not helped me yet it is likely you will have to.
The atmosphere at Setpoint is very laidback. It is not the regular shirt and tie I was expecting. It is common to see a couple rifles in any given week. You can lean a lot by simply listening in on ongoing conversations about the quest for extreme accuracy at the shooting range. Shooting is one of my favorite hobbies and I enjoy learning the finer aspects of it.
All in all Setpoint is a great company and I think I will greatly enjoy working here. The people are great and the work isn’t bad. Thanks to everyone for helping me get set.
