Face paced. Good team work.
Laborer, Mount Carmel, PA - July 5, 2012
Start of the day: PPE- Hair nets, earplugs and gloves. Clock in. Check your station location on the board. At the machines that were assigned, safety sweep. Check the product for errors and package them,and sealing them in boxes to be shipped. After four hours, switch machines to the next set assigned (repeat safety sweeps then work) and then again after another four. Three different stations for twelve hours.
The job taught me how to quickly analyze product for shipping, time management as well.
The management was gracious and listened to any concerns. Dealt with issues swiftly.
My co-workers were helpful and the work force was small, Getting to know everyone was easy and building a rapport with everyone happens quickly.
The hardest part was the twelve hours. If a slow set was assigned that day, the day could drag endlessly. Keeping busy while keeping an eye on the assigned machines.(i.e, Go help other stations, sweeping, talking to the managers about previous issues that weren't able to be expressed, whether it be lack of availability or just the pace of the machines to prohibit it.)
Best part of the job was really the people. If your team works together for a common goal, things get done safely and correct.
