Machine Operator, Dothan, AL - December 6, 2013
I come in at 6:53 and start work. Machine are running when i come. Keep machine running from 7:00a.m to 7:00p.m and keep good quality. Running machine up to 5 machine a piece for 12 hours and splicing in polyester for the machines to run. I have learn to use my time wisely. Trouble shooting machine and having a quick eye how things work while machine run. Management in my department talk to you like you are trash and that you are not good enough and talk to you like they want to. If we say something to the other management they will use it against you to get you fired. Some people out there are great and some are not. People starting gossip to get you mad or do thing to make your job harder. Hardest part about the job is when a machine doesn't want to run and can't get any help from anyone. Have to knock dies and getting burned from the machine because you bump into it or the water splashes and hit the machine for it to burn you. If machine are running you do get more of a break because they will run by them selves only thing you have to do is take the roll off the machine and put a new tube on the machine. Having days off during the week is nice sometimes when your kids are sick or they have specials thing going on in school so you can be there.
