Excellent position for production experience
Machine Operator-Staff Management (SMX) (Former Employee) – Menomonie, WI – November 6, 2017
The 12 hour shift schedule takes some getting used to if you have never done it before. It was very nice to have two week days off every week. The drawback to working here full time was having to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday every other week. Also, the 12 hour days become a very big mental drain after a while. Physically, I got used to the schedule.
A typical day at work consisted of a production meeting in the break room right away in the morning where our team leader would update us on what production lines we were running for the day, any special events or promotions going on, communication alerts from quality and/or engineering, and any other necessary updates. We then went to our first position for the day.
Here I learned a lot about cleanroom practices, common production principles, and work ethic.
The most enjoyable part of this job was meeting dozens of people and making a lot of friends in my time there. I am still close to many of the people that I met there.
Two days off every week
You work every other weekend. (Fri, Sat, Sun)
