It is a stressful but fun at times environment. What I loved the most was the challenge, it keeps you on your toes as a result I've gained vast experience over the years.

Everyday brought about different challenges which expanded my problem solving skills. The most important thing I learned was working as part of a team and keeping in mind that cooperating and contributing to a team really benefits the company and therefore creates a fun workplace. Being part of that team felt like being part of a family that supported and helped each other as much as possible which kept the team's morale high. The hardest part about the job was the transition from a school environment to a workplace environment, it did not take that long for me to adapt because of the type of workplace I was in. The team building activities were great because it brought us closer together as a team, and the challenges I faced really prepared me a lot for industry.

High pressure and demanding environment. Report and manage Food safety issues. Train operators, engineering and implement food safety requirements. Ensure that the HACCP requirement are complied with on a daily basis. The hardest part is to constantly follow up with the production team and get a buy in from them with the changes to be implemented. The enjoyable part of the job is when one reaps accountability and responsibility from operators resulting from sowing trust and building confidence of the operators to take pride on the product they produce and pack on a daily basis.
Pros
Good insentives alinged to the factory performance
Cons
long hours

Review operations on a daily basis, what happened the day before, what where the challenges met, come up with solutions and set targets for the current day. I have learned to manage my stakeholders(my team, external & internal customers and my manage). I needed to carefully pay attention to performing each of the key management roles of planning, organizing, leading and controlling. I had to manage the performance of my team inspire and coach them. Manage departmental budget and service agreement levels. The working environment is based on respect for self , others and the company values. The hardest part of the job is when factories have out of norm hygiene levels, where the factory is in urgent need of analytical results in order to release the product to the market on time. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I get a buy in from my team on delivering results on time and watch them run with the idea to completion. .
Pros
Performance is rewarded
Cons
Long hours when there is a business need
