Forklift driver (Current Employee), Covington, TN – October 8, 2014
my shift starts at 10 p.m. we go over all the things that happened on 1st and 2nd shift then my team leader covers what needs to be done on our shift. i go to my 2nd shift co workers and the give a turn over of what's going on in the department. my days are different, i may ship trucks or receive them in, it all depends on where I'm needed my current – more... situation is staging. i drive a forklift to departments. the normally leave a list on the door containing all the things they will need. after that, i restock all of the items i removed. i also palletize lines and the best part of my day is happiness for all kids who eat our products the worst fear of disappointing my team and my family. – less
Production Specialist (Former Employee), Jonesboro, AR – September 26, 2014
A typical day at work is trying to solve problems and remove any barriers in the output process with customer satisfaction and output reliability as the main focus. I have learned several problem solving skills that will go with me to my next destination. The management here is ok but the lower level employees will live under a glass ceiling. My co-workers – more... are excellent. Always encouraging and helping others to work safe be happy. The hardest part about my job depends on what day of the week it is and how production is going. The most enjoyable part about my job is successfully completing projects and getting recognition for the things the work that I do. – less
Unilever is big on work/life balance as a company. I have the ability to work from home as needed for early AM calls and have been able to feel confident that I can come and go as I might need for personal issues. The culture is about deliverables, not time in a chair. The caveat I mention is about some managers are not, yet, in the mindset of "Agile – more... working" as it is called here. Meaning, some managers expect butts in chairs 8-5 daily and do not allow agile working. This is unfortunate. Fortunately, my manager is interested in output, not time at a desk, which is more the norm. – less
