Antonio Moleros, Customer Service Engineer II, Siemens Healthcare
Transition to Siemens
"I served in both the US Marine Corps and the US Air Force Reserves. My military experience helped me to be successful in my career and formed me into the man I am today. I joined the Marines in 1997 with an MOS in Aircraft Refueling after immigrating from my native Lima, Peru. Being part of an air support squadron, I carried on fueling and defueling operations for all aviation ground assets. During this time, I learned the true meaning of teamwork and discipline, and, most importantly, the consequences that come from the lack of either. I received an honorable discharge with an E-4 pay grade.
In difficult moments on the job, my military experience comes into play and helps me to provide an efficient solution.
In 2002, I decided to join the military once again, this time in the US Air Force Reserve. My time in the Reserves taught me most of my technical knowledge and skills. I joined a medical group as a Biomedical Equipment Engineer. To accomplish this difficult specialty, I had to really apply myself. My duties included preventive maintenance, installations, repairs, and modifications of biomedical equipment while observing medical standards, compliance, specifications, contracts and regulatory guidance. During my time in the Air Force, I stayed an E-4 pay grade and discharged honorably, as well.
Orion helped match me with Siemens Healthcare back in 2008, and I am still with the company nearly five years later. I am convinced that my military background made this career the perfect match for me. No doubt my formation in the Marines gave me a positive life changing experience. The challenges which forced me to endure, adapt, and overcome were priceless and clearly translate into an everyday life in Siemens. It is not enough to know electronics; you have to take ownership of your work all while working efficiency.
The USAFR complemented my Marine Corps experience by shaping me into Biomedical Engineer through a condensed, comprehensive, and professional 11 month course. The knowledge and skills learned in the Air Force rival those of any four year academic institution. Without this quality of education received in the USAFR, it would be impractical to understand and work with civilian colleagues holding bachelors and master degrees in electronics and engineering professions.
Siemens is known worldwide for its quality and is indisputably a leader in innovation and technology. I enjoy working for Siemens, because it offers much more than a secure job with great benefits. For example, there is a university within the company. There are a number of programs which help develop your personal educational goals, and for people like me, this is extremely important. It is evident to me that this company knows that by promoting employee betterment, it achieves a win-win situation.
Thanks to my comprehensive military formation, ethically and technically, after four-and-a-half-years in the company, I am now a Customer Service Engineer II (CSE II). My military life has not faded away, however. In difficult moments on the job, my military experience comes into play and helps me to provide an efficient solution. I proudly work for one of the best companies in the world."
