A typical day at work: I turn on machinery, program 2D bar code printers with the correct information for the specific job, then wait until the heat tunnel gets to 307*F. At this point, I start to pass kits through a series of sections of the machine. It starts with the scale. I set the scale on grams to let me know if the kit has anything missing or extra inside. Next, the kit goes through the first 2D bar code printer, then through L Sealer and into the Shanklin Heat tunnel. Then four kits go into a shipping case, through tape machine and then the 2D bar code printer for the shipping case. After I pass the kits that are done I will start to separate materials for the next job.
What I have learned: Learned to drive a stand-up fork lift. A lot of different training, such as Hazmat, Workplace Harassment, Ergonomics, Workplace Safety, etc...
Management is always making sure how we are doing, checking to see if we need anything or have any ideas on how to make our job more efficient.
Workplace Culture is great. Everybody helps each other out and gets along. Great workplace environment.
The hardest part of the job is to make sure the product it put together correctly and that the deadline is met.
The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that the product that we make and put together is saving lives around the world.
