Machine Operator

I’m a Machine Operator here at Del Monte Foods. My favorite part is when production is at its highest and when a machine is running its smoothest, because that’s when I believe my potential shows. First I would check in at the front board to find out what machine I am operating that day, head to my machine. From there on, inspect the cans, inspect the labeling of the packaging, and the label on top of the cans. I have a lot of fun doing my job, making sure my machine runs properly. And putting up numbers for the company, that’s what’s most important. Helping people. This food’s helping people. Helping people eat, helping people survive. And understanding: you can do more. I like breaking my own personal goals and having fun. As long as you have fun, as long as you know everything’s working cohesively, you’re gonna have a great day. I love hitting numbers, I love working in different departments learning new things every day. Talking to the mechanics, trying to learn everything I can about these machines. It’s fun – it’s not something many people can say about their job.
