I learned a lot about working with other people and building a relationship with them. Every day you learn something new and get more experienced. The most enjoyable part of the job is that there is never a dull moment. Everyone is always friendly and will help you where they can.

The company has given me a lot of self improvement and the opportunity to enrich and outgrow myself in my current position. The complany is definitely a company anyone would want to work for, they have wonderful benefits and care about their employees. The staff are friendly and very easy to work with. Ive learned to improve my people skills, to feel comfortable with all levels of employees and also the ability to improve myself by allowing me to give training, conducting EHS audits on a monthly basis and also to involve me in a whole different level of Safety. I not only got to work on the construction part of HSE but also on the manufacturing part, giving me the opportunity to learn more about machines, entrapments, production and working with different cultures of people.
Pros
Cheap lunches, friendly collegues
Cons
No permanent positions available

Management is very strict, from morning one must make sure that the whole factory is clean, help with parade for security contrators, then cctv monitoring. The hardest part is when your releiver does not pitch and you have to wait a little longer or probably work their whole shift as well. The most enjoyable part is when you catch the thief red handed on camera and youve been suspecting them.
Cons
long hours
