Production Manager, Manufacturing Reviews

What is it like working as a Production Manager, Manufacturing?

Production Manager, Manufacturing in Corona:
"Adaptability."
Pros: Starting out this job I had no experience whatsoever on managing, scheduling, nor training employees. Through the opportunities given to me I have been able to adapt and grow within the company leading them to be a profitable company. I hope to continue to grow by obtaining various degrees and certifications related to the field.
Cons: I don't like the fact that being a small company we do not yet have many structured processes. We are are having to write them as we go but at times it can be overwhelming and a mentor would be useful at times. A plant manager was brought on but he has contributed little to nothing to our daily processes and I am still having to figure stuff out myself.
