Continuous improvement department is the busiest, always kept me on my feet. What I enjoyed the most is to work on different projects with different people.

Working in Health and Safety, there in no one day the same as the next. Always new challenges everyday. I have learned a lot at Tenneco, being throwing in the deep end in 2017 when my manager past away and even before that his responsibilities became mine. He was not replaced and not long after that our EHS Systems administrator and environmental officer resigned (not replaced). We had to implement an all EHS Management system, because nobody knew how the system worked. Management were supportive, but because no one had a EHS background they never understood how much work it involved. The workplace culture is very good. You will never catch someone without PPE in the plant. If a visitor is walking in the plant without PPE, an operator will stop him, even if it is the CEO. The hardest part of the job for me is that I do not get onto the floor that much anymore and to be successful in EHS, participation and consultation with the workforce are an important factor. The most enjoyable part of the job is to serve the people and make a difference in a workplace, make it safe for everybody working there.

I first read a handover from the previous shift.
Then I go around the plant to check if anyone needs assistance.

I have learned to be always be alert as accidents can happen anytime,I have also learned to be patient and calm as collegues sometimes could be not so polite due to personal problems.

Management is always willing to train people who need training and skills.

Hardest part of the job is working shifts as they could change anytime during the week.I enjoy almost everything about my job.
Pros
Trainings and skill developments
Cons
Night shift

A good place to gain relevant experience. You can gain a good understanding of the SAP environment and especially the CO module which is quite complex.

Management only realise at the end of the month that parts shortages are affecting the monthly target.There is a bad culture of using each other as scapegoats if the monthly target is not reached.
No one wants to account for the shortage of parts.The only thing everybody does best is to shift the blame to another department.
Pros
Free coffee and 14th cheque
Cons

I loved Mondays, mostly because the day flies by in a flesh. Once i got my Mondays right, then the rest of the week will be easy for me. I never sound boring, I never give a description of my typical day as typical.
I learn to be detail oriented, even if that's not my normal mode of operation. Communicating with my colleagues or superior always make my next day easy.

To trust my co-workers production at the end of the day is always done.

As we were working as a team, if is there any delays then the final product takes time to be finalized.

Working alongside my colleagues who are fantastic and learning about new ideas.
Pros
Only if we riches target for the month
Cons
Only if we are behind with our production
