Pros: social events like b-b q and paloozas are fun activities we all enjoyed.
Cons: there are times we ran out of parts, test machines were down, i.e.. we needed to rush to expedite the schedules.
Working at Quantum in a typical day, early in the morning, our supervisor had a daily meeting with the group leads to discuss any concerns and issues that needs immediate attention and what are the priorities that needs to be worked on to meet our daily, weekly and monthly schedules. Then, it will be relayed to all of us what needs to be prioritized. We have to prepare all the required parts to be assembled in order to meet our schedule.
We learned a lot of new things everyday, if we are not busy or just finished our work, we assist other areas that needs help or cross train some people to learn new processes.
Working with co workers is like family, everybody knows each other and spent lots of hours working together. It is interesting to work with people with different backgrounds and cultures, we learn a lot from each other.
The hardest part of the job is during end of the quarters; we staggered our time schedules due to longer hours. Some come in early in the morning and some stay late at night for several days to ensure our schedules are met. Free breakfast, lunch and dinners were served during that period.
The best part comes in later after the hard work...plant manager will gather everyone by groups and thanked us for the hard work we all rendered and we were all given half days and sometimes a day off with pay provided we all cleaned the area sparkling clean and in order.
We also celebrated summer by singing karaoke, playing volley ball and many other fun holiday activities as well.
It was a good place to work; management treated us really well.
