Going into our last week of training in Chicago, everyone was very anxious to begin working at the plant. As some of us began to get our projects and we also began yellow belt training on Monday. This 4 day training session gave us the necessary tools to succeed in our projects when we get to our plants. An incredible amount of helpful information, interactive activities, and production simulations kept the learning interesting and memorable. All of us soaked in the information and look forward to applying it in the plants.
Outside of work we took advantage of our last week in Chicago by doing something different every night. On Monday night we had a potluck in our apartments. Everyone brought their favorite dish; mac and cheese being a staple. Tuesday we had the opportunity to go to a famous comedy club. . Finally, we got all of the operations trainees together one last time on Thursday night to have a nice dinner and reflect on our time in Chicago. Everyone agreed, the past four weeks have been among the best of our lives.
