Edwards Lifescience - Life is now
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 3 March 2018
I'm working at Edwards Lifescience (EL) in production line as sewer for sewing heart valve. We work at very early hours from 4:30 to 1:00 pm. Typically, we sit down and sewing a valve steps by steps, it sounds easy but it doesn't as we think. Sewing requires technique and experience to make a beautiful non-mistake successful valve. I love this job because it is very challenging, it makes you have to think carefully every stitches you sew until you figure the way for the valve to look smooth and pass all the tests after made. One mistake and the whole valve is scrapped, it requires great responsibility and focus in this job. I also love to exchange ideas, problems and sharing my experience with my teammates, team leader and supervisor to learn from each other to avoid problems. I think the hardest thing in this job is teamwork, if all team members do not follow procedures or schedules, then the outcomes of target goals cannot be reached. However, due to my allergic to chemicals, I decide to change the job because it affects my health greatly. Moreover, I want to focus on my career in Marketing, that is why I think it is time to look for another job that can help me gaining more experience in what I desire to do.
Stable working hours, good benefit, professional environment
