I am currently a final vehicle mechanic. My typical day includes repairing vehicles, coordinating schedules for my 12 team members, scheduling training, evaluating tools and replacement parts. Harley has almost 115 years of production history. When I first started at Harley Kansas City functioned as an HPWO. We were a functioning HPWO for 12 years (I held a number of leadership roles at the work group level through plant leadership). I was a Non-traditional for six years, my roles involved developing new products, materials replenishment, creating and maintaining work instructions. Additionally, I was also responsible for training NWG employees for all new model content and process improvements. The past five years Harley has functioned as a traditional work place, and I have been a team lead for the past three years.
Great people, challenging work, ability to develop new skills
