The hardest part to do was try to work with the employees that were there before the company was bought. It was hard to change their mind and were not too happy. Also the hardest part is that the company went for too many changes and affect employees as well as managers.
What I enjoyed the most is that I was able to do different things every day, no day was the same. i enjoyed visiting the clean room and talk to the employees, make jokes with them, make them feel that the quality of their job was really important and saves lives. – less
