JOB DESCRIPTION:

 

Assistant operators are operators in training. Their focus is moving more towards the operation of the machine and away from the bagging & winder operational requirements. But this does not mean that the assistant operator will not pack when needed for breaks, training and other reasons. Assistant operators should work with their operator and maintenance personnel to learn more about the machine and how to do simple repairs and preventative maintenance. Assistant operators are just as responsible as the operator for producing quality materials efficiently, so they must take an active role in the day-to-day operations.

 

The successful candidate must be willing to switch shifts in order to cover vacation, sickness, overtime or any other situation where it is deemed necessary by management. This position operates in a fast-paced team environment and is required to assist others as necessary. The successful candidate must be able to maintain the production, quality, safety and housekeeping standards.  The candidate must become familiar with all Sealed Air products and packaging requirements. It is mandatory that the candidate know, understand, and follow all Sealed Air’s policies that pertain to the Brampton manufacturing facility. Training will be provided.

 

  • Prepare station for production processes
  • Assist in the manufacturing of products, and on the machine lines with respect to operation feed, speed and temperature.
  • Assist the Operator in safe and efficient storage of finished products.
  • Perform and accurately record all quality checks following plant procedures for storing and dispositioning of any material.
  • Ensure the machine is running at standard and  the correct amount of repro is being used
  • Lead changeovers, including cylinders and front-to-back valve adjustments.
  • Complete machine start-up and shutdown procedures
  • Actively involvement in maintaining and controlling the co-extrusion process
  • Accurately record all production information and enter production/down time/screp into the Data pass
  • Perform all other duties and tasks as assigned

 

 

QUALFICATIONS:    

  

  • High school diploma or equivalent.
  • 3 years of experience in a manufacturing facility
  • Good computer skills (MS Office – Excel, Word, SAP)
  • Strong English communication skills (listening, speaking, writing, reading)
  • Positive attitude.
  • Must be mechanically inclined.
  • Must have a good work ethic and be reliable
  • Must be able to lift up to 40lbs.
  • Must be a team player and be able to work collaboratively with fellow employees.
  • Must also be able to take direction from the Lead Hand as well as Management.
