My experience


Designed, created, and implemented short interval control in operating areas. Improved statistical process control dashboards. Automated reports and meeting documents. Implemented ideas to increase safety in my unit.

You can learn a lot about manufacturing in a short time in this position


Very interesting processes, good company culture, lots of free food, ability to network with people from several sites


incredibly hot, a bit chaotic, not much to do for fun in this town

Would recommend it to people who...

want to work on manufacturing processes, love troubleshooting tasks
