Being a small company, the workplace was a relaxed, but productive atmosphere.
Pros: productivity levels up -meant we got fridays off early.
Cons: working with employees much younger than myself, them not caring about the quality of their work, disrespecting management. they were there just for the paycheque.
A typical day at work required me to be on my feet on concrete
floors for long hours. We worked 10 hour shifts. The work ethics
such as getting along with my co-workers and working as a group at
various tables. We had to resolve problems to fit our customers needs.
At various times, I was required to act as shift Leadhand for the evening shift. I not only made sure the customer got his order on
time, I had the responsibility to oversee my co-workers and make sure the order was not only completed, but at the same time, gain the respect of myfellow co-workers to make sure the order wa done right to the customers specifications.
Management was quite co-operative and supportive. I got along
well with my department supervisor. He will be more than happy
to provide you with an excellent reference when I get hired. He
will be quite willing to let you know I'm a team player and excellent
and conscientious worker.
