Find out why trainers aren't actually training on a daily basis and have them start so they can then cross train associates to other areas which allows those associates to learn new processes and have more opportunities to move up and boosts moral. Hire more trainers because there aren't enough compared to the amount of assemblers. Have management be more upfront about upcoming changes instead of sugar coating things. Iron out more of the details before presenting info to associates. Find out why there's an issue with tracking inventory which causes crash changeovers lots of scrap and delays that all lead to more ot. Treat your employees like their lives matter as much as your customers and patients of customers. Treat production associates to nice company parties and activities like everyone else. Be more selective in the hiring process. Educate the flow line associates about what each individual part does and how it could impact the person getting treatment if assembled improperly. More ergonomics training.

There's mandatory OT year around in the production cleanroom. Currently every other Saturday with voluntary on the open Saturdays. Now and then they cancel and give a few weeks or maybe months off but it's pretty steady year around since they went back to a 5 day schedule and Vietnam is not producing what they should. They are also going cheap on parts that malfunction and training is not what it used to be. There are too many assemblers and not enough trainers so the quality suffers reworks happen and then OT. You don't have the option to work extra hours during the regular scheduled work week which makes it a long 6 day work week of extremely repetitive NON-STOP assembly with a line full of negative tired people.

If you're an assembler or in the cleanroom don't count on it. They actually lowered the starting pay and senior employees in that area haven't seen raises in many years. They do however offer a small "lump sum" bonus instead. For most other areas I've heard it's yearly.

I left Terumo due to career advancement. Terumo hired a group to help the company for budget cost and made automated machine operators step down to assemblers again. I was looking forward to become an automated machine operator but, due to the group they had hired, my opportunity was taken away.
