It is important to stay focus to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the products.” Sometimes there is some heavy lifting involved so it is important to be physically equipped. The cutting department team members have this to say about their manager. “Dan is understanding, responsive, accessible and easy to get along with. He listens to suggestions and is willing to make improvements to the job so it is easier. He is an all-around great guy who cares about you outside of work and is super supportive and friendly!” The material handler appreciates that they are able to work alone and with a team depending on the job duty.
