Night shift work in food plants + lots of travel
Area Safety Manager (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – July 28, 2015
Typical work week starts with the 8 am morning call to corporate to make travel plans for the week. Most Area Managers have between 10 and 20 plants that they have to visit in a 6 week rotation. Mostly doing safety audits and monitoring safety behavior. Most audits are conducted during 3rd shift but, with customer service and corporated working days it is also possible to work the other shifts as well. Travel between plants can range from a few miles to hundreds of miles each day depending on your area. Due to travel, some work days can last over 20 hours depending on the demands of the job. The job is taxing, but not difficult. It's normally just a lot of simple tasks strung together. During slow peroids the job is fairly easy. You just need to get use to the excessive travel and working at night.
