Plant operator EFZ

A day as a plant operator apprentice

Every day starts with a shift handover, where all major events are passed on to us. The investment processes we work with occur regularly. We are entitled to a small 15-minute break every day and a slightly larger 35-minute break, which is even paid. Being a part of medical production, in my opinion, comes with many challenging and important tasks. Such as monitoring the cooling time, packaging the expensive medicines, and operating and changing the packaging machine. My practice instructor accompanies me, he is genuinely nice and understanding. If I have any questions, I can always turn to my practical trainer. My vocational trainer is very accommodating and apprentice oriented. Because our department is exceptionally large, I encounter many people. In general, I feel amazingly comfortable at Johnson & Johnson (Cilag AG). During my apprenticeship, I experienced many personal highlights such as my three successfully passed machine training courses and my awards at school for good grades. In my apprenticeship, I use my skills such as independence, self-confidence, determination, organizational talent, teamwork, and perseverance. My day ends the same way it began with the shift handover, during which the team taking over from me exchanges information with the shift starters.
