Mainteance Supervisor, Wisconsin Rapids - October 4, 2016
A typical day begins with a work session at 6:40 AM to discuss the schedule for the day and the work requests that came in the night before for prioritizing emergency break ins to the daily schedule and the valid requests to go to planning for routine work. Next at 7AM we go and meet with the crews to have a safety tool box talk and to ask for any safety concerns they may have, then we assign the daily work and send them on there way. There are 2 mechanical Supervisors running a crew of pipefitters and millwrights coming to about 32 if everyone is working. We then go thru our day answering phone calls and addressing emergency's finding parts for them and getting the next day schedule ready to go. As far as I'm concerned you can learn something every day know matter of age. I enjoy all the team members I work with and that's what makes this work enjoyable, the bad part is when there's a bad day of emergency's and have to put a planner hat on which consumes a lot of time.
