Being in management things are a bit different. I was the only manager in the shop area. A typical day started with the review of RO's from the previous day and then into time keeping. As the morning shift arrived it was time to go back into MCMS and approve the morning punches. Then approve the prior shifts RO's for the end of the day for the 3rd shift. Clear and approve all vacations and PTS.
Manage the education and training for all associates as well as myself to make sure all are completed timely. I took the time to walk the shop daily with no clip board or anything with me to say I was doing something other than just visiting the folks on the floor and seeing how they were doing. I would make sure everything that needed to b e ordered was done. I would make certain the supervisor had checked with all venders daily to make sure tings were moving as they should. Trough out the day I would do the filing of important paperwork as required by the city, state and the company. Join in on schedule conference calls as needed. I would also make sure that someone checked the fluids shed to make sure all was available for the drivers daily, to perform their pre-trip inspections on equipment. Before going home I would check the RO's and time keeping again.
Great place for education as they continually offered education for all.
Ended up with conflicting rules that were causing problems.
