Quality Control Engineer, Toronto - June 12, 2012
I typically worked 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. The first hour of the day was spent reading email, checking voice mail, and reviewing any operational problems from the night-shift. A t 10am was the daily plant meeting where we discussed problems and possible solutions. The rest of the day was dictated by the problems of the day and running around between the office and the plant. My time was flexible. I had a team of six members working with me also, and we worked together for the most part. We spent time looking at re-occurring problems with equipments (temperature increase, vibration problems, etc.) and coming up with solutions. I worked with the Chemists at the lab to ensure that the tests for the products were passing and that the plant was functioning properly. I prepared reports and flow charts daily which were submitted to the Management. It was nice because I had a variety of challenges that came up on a daily basis.
