Pros: enjoy training machine adjuster's to watch them learning a skill.
Cons: 38 years of dedicated service with no recognition, bringing home 42, 000 a year. took one weeks vac. from me and outragous health ins.
Work 2pm to 11:30,go over daily schedule with previous supervisor,
help assign machine operators to machines to run,do a walk through in the department for poor housekeeping from previous shift and get them taken care of before they clock out. Check machine speeds
and document on our shift update sheet. Check quality of envelopes
being folded,sign off – more... on jobs that have been put in by different adjusters on machines for approval of work and quality for the customers specs.Turn in work orders to the maintenance dept. or electrical dept. for issues on equiptment. watch for any safety issue's
such as empty pallets standing on end, find out who did it an instruct that employee not to do that for it may fall and hit someone on the leg. Communicate with adjuster's about any sense of urgency orders that have to get filled before the deadline of a tractor trailer leaves,cause the are on a time schedule. We have a schedule daily that when work orders are filled and sent to the warehouse,we have to take them off our schedule as completed.
The hardest part of my job is the communication between the front office on how many envelopes on orders have to ship and a certain timeframe to get them to the warehouse. When i call the shipping supervisor, he tells me that he don't need 30,000 to ship by 6 o'clock,
he only needs 12,500. So i call the plant manager to tell him this and he said to talk to so&so,he has all the info. so i called so&so,and he tells me that the other shipping clerk was right,that's all they needed.MAN WAS I TICKED OFF.We busted our BUTTS for nothing!!!!
But we managed to get what the customer wanted.
The most enjoyable part of my job is making people smile, let them know that i'm no better than them. Some people let the supervisor's
position go to their heads and feel that they are bulletproof and can talk to employee's any way they can,yelling and screaming in front of other's. Those are the one's you have to watch out for,they'll slit your throat and give you a smile. – less
