Entry level plant technicians are hired as members of a work team. Technician work teams are responsible for keeping production flowing, for meeting performance goals and for maintaining the high level of quality that consumers expect from our products.
Technicians do various types of work, including running high-speed converting and packing equipment, controlling the process from a computer terminal, and performing preventive maintenance on equipment. Technicians are expected to get involved, take charge of situations and confront business-related problems.
As we work to start up the plant, technician roles will also include different work responsibilities such as creating operating standards, enabling the proper validation of equipment specifications, creating training materials, etc. Technicians are assigned to different departments such as operations, quality, safety/environmental, utilities, logistics, etc. Each department builds the capability in their technicians to accomplish the business needs and travel may be required to enable such plans.
In order to perform the work described above in our manufacturing atmosphere, plant technicians use basic hand and power tools; lift up to 50 pounds floor to chest level; climb, stand, and move around on stairs, ladders and platforms; twist, turn and bend; and stand and walk on concrete floors for an extended period of time. Further, technicians have and are able to display skills in manufacturing processes, including operating, maintaining and cleaning automated equipment; maintaining accurate records and data; strong technical, interpersonal and problem-solving skills; and knowledge of computers. Additionally, the safety of technicians is of great importance to Procter & Gamble. Technicians will be required to wear appropriate safety equipment, such as safety shoes, hearing protection, and eye protection, wherever these things are required.
