I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time
Experiencing change from traditional manufacturing to lean processes. Excellent mentoring opportunity received from the VP of Operations allowing me to transition from a Quality Tech. to A Quality Manager. Expanding my knowledge of Operations through team process improvement events, Value Stream Mapping Operations processes for example.
The Safety Industry has proven to be difficult industry in this economy, projected growth has been flat and investors expected more from the Mining Industry, for example. Company re-structuring to accommodate financial responsibilities takes it toll.
Advice to Management
Finance and Operations need to be flexible and embrace lean cost saving changes rather than layoffs of trained internal customers.
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Checkers Industrial Safety Products.
Easy. I should have taken more notice of the surroundings to assess my own safety and health exposures. I need to be more observant, but I had never worked anywhere like that before.
