Build and ship bloodbank materials
Material Handler III (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 13, 2013
Working at Gen-Probe requires multi-tasking. Monday, Tuesday and Friday is our shipment days. The work starts from 6:30 am or 7:30 am depending on the quantity of our shipments. It can last till 6:00 pm or even 2:30 am the next following day. I guess I can say that nobody likes the shipment days. As for our kit building days Wed. and Thurs. the most hours we would work for these days are 12 hours shift. My supervisor at that time doesn't really know what's going on on the floor due to he was always out because of personal issues. We had a floor lead which who I bonded well due to my performance, respect and my drive to learn new things. I was her back up whenever she's out for vacation. The job thought me how to become a leader, tackle problems with positive attitude, stand up for what you think is fair and never be trouble with changes. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I can think freely. Most of my coworkers waits to be directed or they wait till someone assigned them their duties. I don't I enjoy working, finishing my tast, I go above and beyond my expectations and I like to takle new projects for the sake of the company and not only for its benefits I see it as my benefits too.
due to my work hours I would say my paycheck, easy to take vacations, team work
managements, achievement awards, politics
