Pros: carry ins on weekends we work, catering on holidays, and 90/10 benefits
Cons: breaks are too short, they just put in this new cafetiere layout and it's not very good
I work through kelly services in a small factory that is slowly growing. On a typical day we all meet in the back of the factory for a daily meeting where we are then told about things we should and shouldn't do, as well as if we are working over through out the week or weekends. The meeting only takes a couple of minutes then we are off to our stations.
Now – more... depending on the day and if anyone has called in will depend on where I go. I know a couple of different areas in the factory but the two that I usually end up doing is line fill and panel line and sometimes I end up doing both in one day. The line fill person is in charge of so many lines and they are responsible to make sure that the lines are kept full at all times so the machines and the people running the machines don't have to stop. I also have to make sure that the right parts are going into the right machines because if they don't then the machine can be down for repair (which means something is stuck and maintenance will have to un-jam the item.
I also do a job called panel line. This job you take two switches the lock and unlock switch as well as the window switch and you set them upside down in this machine which then will push it down into the panel then when it's all said and done you have to look it all over for no scratches or pits in the panel or switches. Then I pack it in a tote and scan it into the computer system.
I work there on third shift and the management there are very nice and they are understanding to a certain extent so if you ever need help you can always go to them they usually will help you in anyway they can (even the Assistant team leaders aka ATL)
The people I work with you have all different kinds of people working and some people you will like and others you may not get along with very well but in my experience so far I have and do get along with most of the people there.
For me the hardest part of the the job is working third shift. I have done it for about 4 years now but I am getting tired of it and it's hard for me to fall asleep through out the day as well as staying up at night usually right after lunch is when I get the worst. The best part of the job is that most of the time, the time it's self goes by fast due to the fact that as long as you can get your parts out and make rate the management don't mind you talking to the people you work around. But if you are not working and just standing around talking that is when you will get spoken too, and if it keeps happening then they will end up moving you so the work that needs to get done will get done. – less
