Name: James Woollen
Position: Systems Engineer
Years in field: 12
Where: Saddle West Hotel & Casino - Pahrump, NV
Experience: Mostly as a Network Engineer, however, here I've had to take on (learn by trial and error) many unfamiliar aspects, such as working with servers, databases, ect., as well as all the things that go along with "gaming," including pushing artwork to slots, addressing audits, managing budgets, licensing, software libraries...the list goes on and on. I've been in this OJT learning mode for four years now. It's interesting, but I'm crushed by the overhead because of budget cuts. Total experience in the field is 12 years.
I have a part-time person who works with me, but I'm still overloaded and virtually on-call all the time. Fortunately we have most things ticking along...but there is still a lot to do. I'm always behind. I'm glad to find this application and the offered assistance.
