Pros: decent pay long hours great work environment
Cons: rotating 4 days on and 4 days off, not all 48 hours would go on the paycheck, and some would be held till the following week
A day at work would involve me setting up for a 12 hour production run in the plant on one of the given manufacturing machines. I would check materials measure out by millimeter and replenish and manage cip operations for my line every 3 hours.I learned how to run those machines and keep them running. Every production machine will be different in different jobs however. Management was great and very supportive. Some of the co-worker I could live without as they didn't wish to work and mostly got in the way. As for the rest of my co-workers it was a positive attitude and we were in it together each work period. Hardest part of the job would be cleaning everything, as it is a manufacturing environment it gave us a lot of cleaning up to do as well as the workloads. The most enjoyable part of the job was the managements ability to know when to have fun and relax and be honest about the not being uptight (because you can tell when they're just trying to have a good time and are overly worried or uncomfortable) and mainly acting like an extension of the family.
