Safety meetings in the morning, then inspections and coaching sessions, The hardest part of the job was to repeat the same thing over and over on a daily basis.The most enjoyable part was to send people home everyday healthy and without any injuries

* I'm used in working under pressure and believe in being more competitive in productivity for the value of money I earn. * I learned to respect my job as my company. * The Management of the Company I worked for was too power in such a way that many employees were not impressed of it during and after end of contract. * The hardest part of the job is when we were forced to work overtime with no compensation. * The most enjoyable part of the job is when we receive compensation for the services we rendered.
Pros
There was nothing for nothing
Cons
We worked 10hrs and above per day that was not inline with labor relations act.

each day was a lesson as there is no production without safety my supervisors and managers were good people they taught me a lot and am grateful for them. Sometimes employees can be fun but at the same time interesting and fun to work with. The hardest part was when a near miss or incident has been reported after 24hrs I really enjoyed working in that company, we worked as a team all the time.

the first day at work was so difficult . I didn't have any idea about the product. but now I can built the product from start to finish. with the help of our management it was easy to learn the product. my co-workers are so supportive and helpful with all the problems you can come across. the most enjoyable part of the job is when the inspector tells you that your job is excellent.
Pros
free tea time
Cons
long hours
