Competitive manufacturing environment.
MATERIAL HANDLER (Former Employee) – Valley, NE – January 3, 2018
A typical day for me was usually working alone on a specialized task. I worked in a separate building in charge of minor maintenance on product(s), data logging/data entry and making sure it was ready for shipping. I learned quite a bit of information, however, most job specific knowledge isn't applicable outside of the workplace.I did on the other hand gain vast experience with various tools and machinery. The culture of my workplace changed drastically within the few years I was employed from relaxed to immensely oppressive and depressive. The hardest part of the job was definitely working up at the 834 degree kettle area, where product was coated with molten zinc, or the weeks on end without time off. The most enjoyable part of my job to me meanwhile, was the workplace relationships/ friendships that I have made in the process.
Great pay and benefits, and job security.
short breaks, over worked, mismanaged.
