I enjoy the complex and structured environment.
Pros: training new employees
Cons: long twelve hour work days and working every saturday.
We begin the day with a short 15 min. Safety huddle.
We begin production at 4:15 am. Work is set up from the previous day. The remainder of the day consists of scheduling the departments, Monitoring the output of the molding areas, evaluating scrap, Training and mentoring the employees in eight separate molding areas. Monitoring the sand systems.
I – more... have learned a great deal about non ferrous metals and the workforce what drives them and what slows their production.
My coworkers are great people willing to lend a hand whenever it is needed.
The hardest part of my job is relining induction furnaces.
The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work along side my employees. – less
