This oral history recording consists of Addie and Gert's memories of the Electro Chemical Company where they both worked. Carl Halpern, other upper management and workers are mentioned. Gert worked there for approximately three years and made $19/week, Addie was there on and off for over 22 years and started at $.35/hour but got up to $50/week when she left in 1945. They both tell anecdotes of games and fun they had in the shipping department and the office, Addie's first time taking dictation for Carl Halpern, lots of parties for birthdays and other events, and the general closeness of the co-workers. Gert started working there when she was 18 in the shipping department. She describes the women she worked with, their personalities and quirks, and the things they did together. They both tell stories about the elevator operator, taking inventory after hours, Carl's mistaken gender on his birth certificate and Addie driving Carl and co-workers to the commuter train after work. They talk about nicknames, rumors and romance at the plant, jokes played on the new office boy, the state of the building at the time of the recording, going to work by trolley and commuter train and receiving Christmas presents every year. Gert and Addie describe the personalities and dress of the upper managers, trials and tribulations of using the switchboard, commuting together with co-workers or managers and writing to the servicemen from Electro Chemical while they were stationed overseas.
