I have been working for about a month in the Holland Heinz facility where we produce a variety of Heinz® products. In May, we announced that we will be launching a new product in Holland, so it is quite the exciting time at this plant.
It is also an exciting time for my personal career as I transition out of my training period and into the point of my career where I can make real impact on my plant. The first few weeks I was able to shadow members of every department of the plant, from warehouse to quality to raw materials procurement. I was able to gain a breadth of knowledge of the entire plant system. This will help me in my official assignment as production supervisor.
I enjoy learning about all of the processes on the production floor and meeting everyone that works on the floor. I am also looking forward to working on my yellow belt project to improve operations on one of our production lines. This project will be challenging, yet rewarding as it has the potential to positively impact the plant.
