Safety and production conscious.
Pros: good wages, occasional free meals from vendors
Cons: everything is out in the open, so the elements are sometimes rough.
365 days a year operation. 12 hour shifts. This is a continuous process that requires that your shift pick up where the prior shift left off and safely run the process. Must handle any upsets that arise. The teams on each shift ran the show, but with supervision input. There are 5 distinct operations in the Fiberline and all co-workers learned to run each job. This was done through a rotating schedule The hardest part of the job was when a machine failed. There are a lot of valves to open or close and a thorough check-off list to insure that the maintenance can be done safely. The most enjoyable part of the job is working alongside co-workers who know what jobs need to be done and get out there and do those jobs.
