This job was my first taste in the steel industry and I wouldn't change it for the world. My day started out with management handing me the information required to get my job done as a rolling mill operator. I went through "in house material" at the beginning of the shift to load the machine and had a helper package the material and weigh it for delivery.
Excellent company provided great compensation and benefits. Tried to be as work/life balanced as possible. Provided several avenues for advancement.. The job was both rewarding and challenging. Exceptional well rounded management team both caring of people and business savay

Team Leader - Six Sigma Project (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – October 25, 2013
In six sigma project, I have managed a team of four six sigma green belt candidates to work for Worthington Steel, conducting analysis for their extremely high late release rate in transportation department. We were able to sort and summarize key variables from their complex database. By following the six sigma DMAIC process, we provided three solutions including a redesign of information exchange screen used by transportation department to communicate with sales department and one control mechanism to decrease and control their late release ratio. I am proud of the fact that our clients valued our contributions. Because of those experiences, I was able to develop my leadership skills and obtained a deep understanding of the importance of communication and collaboration, especially in a well diversified team.
Productive work environment enabling me to grow and learn with great management.
