Great opportunity for new experiences
Lab Manager of Reagent Production (Current Employee) – Hollister, CA – June 8, 2015
Very face pace working environment. Teknova has a drive to deliver products as much as they can as fast as they can to satisfy the needs of all their customers. A typical day would include managing a team to manufacture products, help troubleshoot any issues during the process, and organize the workflow to ensure efficiency between departments.
I've learned how important communication is between departments in order to deliver a product of the best quality we can offer. I've gained awareness that every action performed during manufacturing may have a large effect or consequence on the products' intended use and how detrimental it could be for the end user. The most important lesson I've learned was how to move forward after failing.
My co-workers are my greatest support system. We collaborate together and assist each other in every way we possibly can. We all share the same goals here at this company and believe it takes a team effort to ensure the goals are met.
The hardest part of the job is learning time management. There are numerous tasks to be completed daily, which staying organized and prioritized are the key methods to stay ahead.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the rewarding feeling when a product with production issues is solved or when products are produced before the expected ship dates, which in turn increases customer satisfaction.
Learning experience, high opportunity for internal hire to progress
