Productive yet stressful workplace
Quality Inspector II (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – July 21, 2015
Close knit group of assemblers, quality and engineering. Management seemed over his head most of the time. Typical day was building cables, checking quality, and building inventory to be shipped to sister site before shipping to customer. Started but was not able to advance with Lean Manufacturing and 5S due to lack of commitment to stay on task and remain focused due to management. Hardest part of the job was always working from behind when we had a very scaled down group (from max of 10 to a min of 5, including management). Overall the job was enjoyable when everyone was working together towards a common goal. When management decided it was time to "help out" to get the work done we worked well together.
Short breaks, inconsistent discipline sometimes weeks later, Lean was not team focused, blow-ups by boss hurt morale
