Very challenging and enjoyable environment
Sr. Manufacturing Engineer, New Product Group (Former Employee) – Greensburg, IN – October 31, 2018
The typical workday started with a check of email for process emergencies from 2nd or 3rd shift, walk through for face to face feedback with 3rd shift, move forward with many projects during the day, walk through for face to face feedback with 2nd shift, then continue with project work. The vast majority of my knowledge and experience came from Delta. Management and the culture of the company was great until they learned that 95% of all manufacturing operations were going to be moving to Jackson TN. The hardest part of the job was that only management knew of the move to Jackson, so it was very difficult to understand why new equipment was not being bought even after justifications yielding 6-month paybacks. The most enjoyable part of the the job were the technical challenges with finding faster and better ways to produce product more cost-effectively and with superior quality and process reliability.
Great pay, Engineering challenges, Job satisfaction
