Pros: an abundance of overtime that you can work whenever needed; relaxed style of dress, yet conservative; paid weekly; time and half received without having to work 40 hours first., excellent benefits
Cons: breaks are 10-15 and 10 minutes, can't leave the plant for lunch, no actual lunch break, sometimes work 12 or 13 days straight with 2 or 1 day off, working every weekend.
Everyday is different. Depending on what section of a department I was working in would determine my job duties for the day. A two week schedule would be posted showing my primary duties. I could be working independently or with a team of up to five.
I have learned how to be proactive in eliminating potential hazards and problems that could cause problems – more... with production which could cause us to get off schedule with shipping.
The daily task are given and expatations are to complete the job with little to no supervision. Management is there if we need them but they encourage problem resolution and accountability.
My co-workers and I work together to ensure safety. Working together we both/all give input on maintaining quality production items and meeting schedule timelines.
The hardest part of the job was working with mechanical/ electrical issues while continuing to be productive and have quality output. Denying voluntary overtime would be the next hardest part of my job.
The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work in an environment where everyone has their own ideas but we are able to come together to accomplish a common goal. Also, when I come into work, I don't know what I'll be faced with, but just knowing each day presents new challenges is exciting in itself. – less
