We asked Dave a few questions about what it's like to work at Amphenol Network Solutions and learned of some spots in Montana we definitely want to visit!
What three words would you use to describe our culture?
Rewarding, Innovative, and Comradery
What have you gained from working at Amphenol Network Solutions?
I hit my 5 year anniversary this past May, during this time I was given so many opportunities to grow, I was a Lead on the Production side, from there I moved over to the Fiber Optics Lead role involving building, routing, and final testing of CPRI/MPO modules, now that I have settled into the Quality Assurance role I have an entirely new set of tools and skillsets to work with, this has kept me very driven and focused.
What is your proudest moment at Amphenol Network Solutions?
Accepting the Quality Assurance position.
What advice do you have for prospective candidates?
Work hard, have pride in what you do, embrace the people around you. Do not be afraid to wear as many hats as possible, this all adds so much value. Your hard work and efforts will be noticed and rewarded.
What does a typical day (or week) look like for you at work?
There are no two days/weeks alike with my role, I approach each morning with Assess, Adapt, React, Deliver approach and I love it.
My day is filled with incoming product inspections, First Article approvals, internal daily audits in production, shipping, and warehouse. I will also collaborate with the Manufacturing Engineers on certain production matters that arise. Working directly with suppliers is also on the list.
What is the one thing you can't live without?
What is your personal philosophy?
Life is short. Focus on what matters most, you may have to change your priorities along the way.
What is your hometown and what activity, restaurant, or landmark would you suggest to someone visiting?
I am from Great Falls Montana. The Lewis and Clark expedition traveled through Great falls discovering 5 spectacular waterfalls along the Missouri River (now you know how GF got its name) along the way they discovered what is now called Giant Springs next to the Missouri River, this is a must-see attraction. The spring flows underground for 60 miles before bubbling to the surface forming this 40 or 50-foot diameter pond that maintains a 50-degree temperature. The outlet runs 200 feet to the Missouri River and is a named river called the Roe River which, at the time I grew up there, had the fun fact of being the shortest river in the world. Just a beautiful sight to see with all the lush foliage that grows at the bottom of this crystal clear pond. A restaurant? I would say the “Sip and Dip” maybe a bit more of a lounge but you may just catch a glimpse of mermaids swimming behind the bar. Mermaids exist here, not joking!
Activity hmmm, "cow tipping" no that’s not a thing…. Or is it ;)
