Pros: good people, great cafe, excellent benefits, 401k & pay.
Cons: you could not afford mistakes, the job could be extremely intense, overtime could be demanded at the end of the day if the new crew had meetings.
Absolutely necessary to maintain a flexible frame of mind and a good attitude. You might start out preparing to run one line and be switched to another halfway through the process.
Be prepared to READ. The first few weeks are just reading standard work instructions, literally hundreds of pages and assimilating acronyms, again hundreds of them.
As an Aseptic Operator we were required to qualify for gowning; full cover aseptic covers that included multiple sets of clothing, hoods, masks, gloves & goggles, which were required in the clean rooms and worn for up to 5 or 6 hours at a time, a learned skill and not for everyone. Working in the "core" required learning aseptic techniques that produced the least amount of contamination to the product. We learned to move slowly and with purpose. Each room had it's own SWI, and therefore it's own set of rules. Each "batch" that we produced also had it's own production rules.
The hardest part of the job; when you had to stop everything, reclean the room and start over, because of possible contamination.
The most enjoyable part of the job? We were producing vaccines for the world & it made the job worth doing. Also, because we worked in close teams, if you were lucky, the day went by well.
