Enjoy the associates I work with and building productive relationships with all associates including all departments and management levels.
Pros: workout facility, full service cafeteria, large deck to spend lunch
Review passdowns from previous shifts for continued accurate communication. Ensure excellent start up of production to set a positive pace for the shift. Communicate with all levels of leadership immediately for any important items that need immediate attention. Always strive for zero injuries, zero downtime, zero scrap, maximum process capability. Address any and all quality concerns, especially supplier quality.
Never trust anyone but yourself when it comes to verifying quality. Never let any supplier cut corners to meet their goals, same goes with internal departments. Always make decisions base on hard data that can be defended if any issues come up. Data should always drive the process. Data does not lie, have bad days, data removes the human element that can cause decisions based on emotions, gut feelings, guesses, and incorrect theories. These can cause the process to quickly go out of control and loose capability.
Management is a great diverse team. They bring many talents to the company. Diversity is alive and healthy which makes for a strong team. My management is very approachable, non judging, open minded, and generally a great team. The time I've been there I've seen them let employees fly as high as their dreams take them.
At times, when suppliers are having very difficult times with quality and processes its hard to see them so frustrated with no way to help them with their processes.
Most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make sure that any and all parts that I'm accountable for that go into the vehicles is the absolute be, perfect. Preventing questionable quality parts from reaching the production line.The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and my counterparts on my team. Great professional relationships lead to great quality and overall passion for producing the very best product available.
