Set standards & monitor production.
Keep production records & post metrics.
Maintain inventory levels to keep production running.
Keep harmony among the employees in a union environment.
Hold monthly meetings with subordinates to discuss safety.
Hire & discipline employees as necessary.
Co-workers & subordinates were usually easy to work with. Decent pay & (for me) close to home.
Non-air conditioned environment was uncomfortable most of the time. Lousy, upper management set unobtainable goals.
