Free, relaxed, enjoying what I am doing. Learning each and everyday. Applying a culture of accountability in my day to day. Build trust, and build talent. I leaned to work and tolerate people, because of different cultures. I leaned about the business. I manage operators and technicians, also training them in terms of safety, good run settings and change overs. The hardest part in the job is to deal with dishonest people. Enjoyable part is when we as a department end months being green. Meeting our targets in terms of Safety, waste and OEE.

My role requires me to be in a couple of meetings a day, in those meeting I have to deliver actions. You are required to be always on your feet, which is great because you always have your ducks in a row.

Everyday there is a new opportunity to improve the manufacturing process. I am continously learning. Management is very driven and this provides the teams with propoer direction. The hardest part of my job is dealing with some very difficult personalities. The most enjoyable part is when a modification is complete and it works.

Fault finding and inspections using centre lining targets, daily safety inspections.

Never assume, always ensure you have facts and done your research.


Management could be tough but under economic crunch and fast moving environment it is understandable.


Co-workers are from different cultures and backgrounds, so it is fun to learn how different cultures work in a team to reach the same targets.


Persuading management to use different methods in production or using alternative ways to improve safety by removing, mitigating or reducing risks.


The results.
Pros
Medical Aid
Cons
Long hours

I was enrolled with unisa for a Diploma in Pulp and Paper Technology, my day at work was divided into two parts. 70 to 30 % ratio of working hours, from 8 to 2 I was working and learning the process, and 2 to 4:30 was commited to my studies.

I learned to operated automated machines, fork and clamp truck driving, and the relevance of commitment.


Management was good. I reported to our Trainign officer, but was placed under the watch and instruction of the floor and shift manager. there two other process leaners who were there a year before me. They helped me understand and grow as far as knowledge was concerned.


The hardest part of the job was when we had to cut big roll of tissue paper using hand blade until the core. It made the hand sore and was very tiring.


Everyone was kind for me, and most enjayble was when I passed my fork truck driving lessons, machine operation evaluation and when I could be left alone to do the work
Pros
tituin paid for me
