Operator in Cork

Not much to say. Just that the lads are great, you have one or two AH's, Management could do with a kick up the backside, too many chiefs not enough Indian's, Focus on the small things and not the bigger picture, they focus to much on minor issues rather than the safety and well being of the Employees. You work hard, and you get no thanks for your efforts on a daily basis. You have to remember that there are better places to work.

Stay away from here
Very stressful & hard work. The working hours are 12 which are 2 day shifts and then 2 night shifts after 4 days off The building is old and when it rains it turns into a drip tray. The canteen is a ruin.Managers do their best to create problems and to impose their rules and overtime. Believe me when I say they have their own way of getting you paid when you say no

A great place to start my IT career
I would start the day at 9:00 but i would usually get to work at 8:30, at this time i would ensure that the backup for the previous day had run successfully and then i would insert a new tape, I would also check that nothing had gone wrong during the night. i.e a server had crashed. Once the day was underway it would usually consist of me checking with the IT manager to see what extra jobs we needed to get done that day. i would also get calls or e-mails from colleagues either on site or in our plant in England, if the problem was on site i would walk down to them our try and fix the problem over the phone. If the caller was in England i would log into their machines using Teamviewer and solve the problem remotely . Some of the issues that i was tasked with solving were mapping a network drive, issues with their e-mail, or they for their password in which case i would just reset their password with active directory. I also was responsible for printing stillage(shipping) labels for the production side of the business.I would print normal labels except for a certain customer who used EDI, it was fun learning about the technology used in this process. The most enjoyable part of the job was when i was tasked with installing helpdesk software to monitor the jobs. I then wrote up an instruction manual to show users how to submit a ticket and also some of the other features. The hardest part of the job was not what i would call hard but frustrating, it was when we were testing new labels for shipping, we would stick these on wooden crates but some were stuck on MDF which is smooth and the labels would stick easily, the other times the labels were stuck on rough wood and the labels would not stick properly so to save money i came up with the idea of putting some staples in to secure the label.
