Accomplishments

Set up a dumpster pad with numerous of angles, using two hubs the surveyors laid out. Noticed one set of drawings were 1/8th of an inch bigger than the other. Laid everything out to the second drawing due to the fact I saw that drawing had the faux brick shown. No supervision and never had the opportunity to try with a team. Everything was done from what I visually saw and verbally heard from more experienced workers. I was handed a set of plans and was told get it done. Site superintendent back-checked everything, gave me a thumbs up and told me I was responsible for dumpster pads from that day on.
