Line Leader, Danville, VA - January 9, 2016
When I arrived, I clocked in and prepared my station. I had to calibrate each scale. After, I checked my orders in order to know what chemicals i was running that day. I typed the orders into the machine's computer then checked and scanned all the chemicals needed to fulfill each order. While waiting for the machine to start running, I would acquire a bag and a bucket, record the serial number of the bag into the log book, and place the bag within the bucket. Afterward, I would place the bucket onto the line and redistribute the weight after each chemical was inserted. Finally, i would remove the bag and seal it, weigh it for verification, and place it into a metal container. The hardest part of the job was avoiding the toxic chemicals. The most enjoyable part was competing with the other lines to see which line could run the most bag. It made us feel more productive during the day.
