Quality Control Coordinator (Current Employee), North Haven, CT – May 13, 2013
Pros: constant learning experience with room to grow
Cons: not much flexibility with shedule. hours are set, and mandatory. call outs result in write ups.
I like my Job because it gave me the ability to really show my workmanship. I worrked without much supervision, so it was really up to me to ensure that I knew all the safty procedures and quality procedures to get my job done and get it done right. I work in an atmosphere where one mistake could effect an entire line of work which may have started – more... weeks prior, Therefore I was extremely detail oriented, taking an initiative to check and double check my work. – less
packaging opp/ tableting (Former Employee), Hobart, NY – May 11, 2013
At any other typical job working at a manufactory had its pros and cons but having a positive outlook on everything made work less stressful. I was very attentive to things around me and quickly picked up on the assesments there. There was great supervision in every department, and worked together great, I learned from my co workers there and was able – more... to manage some equipment with excellent teaching. I would have to say there was nothing hard about working there. Coming in with a pleasant attitude and being surrounded with excellent co wokers made each day enjoyable. – less

Facilities Manager (Former Employee), Norwood, MA – May 2, 2013
Pros: free bagels on fridays & popcorn on thursdays
Cons: the larger company bought out the smaller company then moved the operations overseas.
I would typically start my day by walking the facility, to make sure everything was up and running properly. I would make sure lights, heat / air conditioning was working, doors were secure and nothing out of place. I have always thought that safety was very impostant and more recently customer service concerning facilities is important as well. I enjoy – more... interacting with all of the personnel but sometimes it is difficult to please all the people all the time, for example two people working side by side, one said they are to hot while the other says they are to cold, but you have to try to please everybody as best you can. What I like most is job satisfaction, the feeling of accomplishment. – less

Pros: hours 7-3:30 pm great pay and benefits
I worked for Covidien for 25 years and planned on retiring there, however, they had no choice but to downsize and ship our products out of state to their sister plants and closed in September 2011. I loved the people, and management were very caring. It was a hard thing to go through for everyone, we tried our hardest to be lean to keep the plant open. – more... Their greatest gift was sending me back to school and now I have finally got a college education with an Associate's Degree. – less
