A strong (do it right the first time) company,good training.
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: worked my way out of a job too soon.
I Owens Corning is a fine company with a long history .
I enjoyed working there,starting as a group leader in production then in a few months i was moved up to supervisor i was there a few years and they needed someone to take over inventory control i had that for three years,I had as many a eight (8) warehouses all but one was off plant sight, it took extra activity to keep up,but we received a letter of a job well done after our yearly physical wit a very low right off. I took over a shift in the warehouse and our on job accidents dropped due to constant safety inspections. we made our shipment on time and correct counts. we brought computers on the seen and put them to work trying to convince people to treat the computer as a tool like any other tool was hard but it worked.
I was asked to start a maintenance planning department where all of the plants equipment was entered and a preventive inspection sheet was created. The inspection sheet would be printed out on schedule tobe performed. All repair work was put on a schedule and i made sure the materials people and schedule were all in sync. to make the repair go smoothly and on scheduled time table.I had at least one multimillion dollar rebuild each year. where you had (28) days from shut down to start up for complete rebuild. that required people and equipment and parts all had to be there when needed and were inspected to insure every thing was right. we always finished up one or two days ahead of schedule and on or under cost. dedication to detail buy every one made it come off and we all look good.
Good People dedicated and a good company that was dedicated to its people,made an unbeatable team...
