Our DEAM employee is Mosie C. Mosie was a pleasure to work with and had a smile that made all the staff enjoy coming to work with him. We put him into a very busy and fast paced environment which challenges all workers and Mosie certainly seemed to enjoy the experience. He worked well with his team and did his best to keep up with all the clearing duties he had assigned to him. One of the bartenders he worked with had the following to say about Mosie:
“He was a hard worker and was ALWAYS positive. He was able to bring a smile to my face as well as any customers he encountered.” – Brenna Kobayashi

Jessica came to work at Ramatek 4yrs ago. She was hired as a Laboratory Technician in training. She was taught to set up and calibrate a number of instruments, namely Atomic Emission Spectrometer, Fourier Transform Infra Red Spectrometer, Viscometer, pH Meter, Potentiometric Titrator, Moisture Titrator, and Pentane Insolubles Meter. These instruments are used to analyse fluids for wear metals and contaminants and physical condition of the fluid. From this we are able to determine the condition of the machinery from which the fluid is sampled. Jessica progressed to testing our customer’s samples.
After passing through the training period she was subjected to a very comprehensive Qualification Test, consisting of 50 questions with multiple choice answers and 5 practical tests setting up the instruments. Jessica passed with a score of 100%. She is the first person I have ever administered the test to that has scored maximum points. She proudly displays her certificate of qualification, which was presented to her at a special ceremony at DDRC.
Jessica, who has epilepsy and subject to seizures, was a rather shy person when she first came to Ramatek. However, as she learned to master the tasks presented to her she has developed into a confident young lady who loves to come to work each day and is an asset to our company. I personally have found working with Jessica a very rewarding experience.
