Pros: the ability to run the facility with little interference from supervisors.
Cons: little time for family
Kerry Ingredients is a very fast paced progressive company. A typical day would involve analyzing previous 24 hour production. Devising contingency plants to meet pitfalls to fulfill customer needs. Meet with Plant Manger every morning with a synopsis of previous days production. Meet with plant department heads to discuss scheduling, safety, quality, shipping and recieving, and maintenance concerns that may arise in the near future. The most difficult part of my job was to schedule to work many hours of overtime, and schedule them to work seven days a week. Another part of the job that was rather tasking was being on call seven days a week twenty four hours a day. The most rewarding aspect of my function was to see deadlines met daily and to work with a diverse and energetic cadre of employees, many of who I mentored.
