What I Like About Working at Whitcraft
They invest in their people, and I’m an example of that. I went from no experience to where I am today as Lead/Planner in eleven years.
I started out in an entry level position, worked hard, did a one-year apprenticeship, took blueprint and math classes, and took leadership classes. You get exposed to all different departments and you’re given the tools you need to grow. I was a flat line operator who saw improvements that could be made and was empowered to make them. The vision for the company is to become a world-class manufacturer. Being part of the solution, I find to be very empowering.
About My Job
Being Lead/Planner involves a wide range of jobs. Which includes scheduling workload for the flow lines, reporting on status of execution of our dispatch systems. Leading the staffing in the direction of Lean manufacturing including Kaizen events. My job also includes various problem solving tasks.
When I get chance, my hobby at home is painting with Acrylics.
