Stressful and challenging work environment.
Unit Leader (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – August 9, 2016
My typical day consist of meetings with various levels of upper management, managing day to day activities of 40 crew members, writing daily reports, training and discipline.
Over the several years at Bridgestone I have grown as a Unit leader, learning how best to run a department and how to get the most out of my crew.
My Co-works are some of the best around, team oriented, work for the same goal.
Management at Bridgestone is now moving towards establishing programs to create a Premier Place to work, several managers have taken course to improve the working relations with teammates on the floor.
The Hardest part of my job is trying to juggle all the need from different departments while maintaining low waste and high proficiency, the most enjoyable is the camaraderie between unit leaders.
