Hard working employees and active work environment.
Pros: relaxed and friendly work environment.
Cons: poor management
A day on the job as a material handler for American Air Filter consists of many things. From placing orders, to pulling needed parts to fork-lift driving.
As a material handler I was to ensure that the production lines had everything they needed for their current order and also for the orders ahead. A lot of good time management was required as a material handler. Being able to use the time between orders to prep and order needed supplies for the next order while making sure the workers had enough material for their current order, was quite the feat.
I enjoyed this style of work because I stayed on the move and there was never much of a lull during the work day. The work environment was a fun one, with the workers keeping good spirits and staying motivated.
The hardest part of the job was probably dealing with the management, who never seemed to be satisfied with the production that was accomplished.
The best part of the job had to be the feeling of accomplishment when good numbers were produced and knowing that a lot of it was due to my hard work.
