Pros: working with a diverse group, learing new things, being productive
Cons: favoritism, lack of weekly hours on schedule, no sorts often, personal relationships between management and emplyees
First, I feel that the weekly call is difficult at times because it seems everyone tries to call in which leave you having to repeat calling the service just to register to be considered for the hours during the week. I do understand that senior quality control inspectors have priority over others, but with the newly hired, it takes forever to placed – more... on the weekly schedule.
I have learned a great deal with the on the job training. I was so excited about working there, but again, very difficult to get on the weekly schedule.
The management...well that could be better. I found that most managers played favoritism to certain QCI, and it others not feeling like they belong during the shift. Not only the favoritism, but I found out there were personal relationships going on to point to where those involved we not trying to keep it on a professional level, to which disagreements arose on the job site, and made work your shift difficult to endure at times.
The hardest part of the job was the introduction of new sorts without proper training. I am prior military, and I like structure, to which this shift had none, often times most QCI left without the supervisor knowledge, and slacking out during the shift by just sitting around doing nothing. When there were no sorts to inspect, instead of just sitting around, let's get some training in topics that would not only benefit the company , but the employees at the same time.
Like I said before, I enjoyed coming to work and being productive. You get the chance to meet and work with a diverse group of people striving for the same goal...to inspect sorts with minimum errors and make the PIC Group profitable. – less
