You work with maintenance and other departments to ensure safety, environmental, production and cost goals are met and make any necessary changes to operating processes to maintain product quality. You are responsible for the day-to-day operation of your assigned units during your shift, working with others to deliver optimal performance. Strong math and science skills required.
