"It was a nice place to work. I was starting my work day with a handover, to know what was happening on the previous shift. I have learned a lot about machines, now I have got mechanical vision. Management was nice, they always care about the people. The hardest part of the job is changing over, because all equipment and plants need to be cleaned. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the plant is running well after change over and quality is good"
