  1. Arizona? and here I was thinking I was going to see a bunch of immigrants working our jobs. Half of them legal of course.

  2. Wheres all the white guys? They must work upstairs in the offices where the couches and watercoolers are.

  3. I'm about to start working Dec 7th doing the exact same thing. Except with Samsung. Same schedule and everything. 4 days on days off, 3 days on and 4 days off. Compressed work week. I found this video very helpful and motivating for what I'm about to start. Wasn't quite sure what to expect. This def helped me with that
