Clitheroe Capital Projects Contractor (Former Employee) – Clitheroe – 2 January 2018
As a contractor I was given free reign to do my work within the standards and procedures adopted by 3M globally, I worked unsupervised and performed above their expectations. The work was enjoyable, the work environment was professional, and I had full cooperation from 3M employees and management, who respected my expertise and experience and trusted me to complete the assignm,ent to their satisfaction.
While during my time as a machine operator I was trained in how to operate large assembly machines in order to achieve hourly targets. I gained a considerable amount of experience to take into future job opportunities which may arise. I was also trained in how to keep track of orders and materials via batch numbers to be processed for dispatch.
Technical sales and support (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 5 June 2017
3M have changed considerably since 2005. They no longer focus on long term relationships, concentrating more on immediate sales, and no longer investing in providing added value to the offerings, but retaining a premium price point. A dramatic reduction in investment of its staff has seen team building fall to a point where the organisation is focusing more on the stick than carrot to get the best from its employees.
Communication handover with outgoing Technicians, daily operation planning meeting with supervisors and operation personnel, carry out planned and reactive maintenance tasks, carry out production line changeovers, (for various products/sizes). Managing and overseeing production line operatives. No 2 days were ever the same so learning was a constant. Due to the nature of the manufacturing company Working safely was one of the biggest workplace cultures. Most challenging part of the job in my opinion was maintaining targets whilst attending a multitude of meetings. Most enjoyable part of my job was achieving targets, solving problems and a sense of achievement when I leave each day.
