What is it like working as a Production Planner, Manufacturing?
Production Planner, Manufacturing in Seneca:
"Planning - Automotive Industry, Opportunities & Challenges."
Pros: Constant opportunity to push myself and grow - Daily facing new challenges and feeling my work makes a difference for the organization as a whole. I am a valued member of the team and my contributions are appreciated and recognized. High-Pressure and Elevated Stress in many daily job functions and interactions - Learning to manage this well is an excellent barometer for personal growth and longterm opportunity to build security as a valued asset within the team as a whole.
Cons: No job is without its ups and downs - Planning can be fast paced and extremely stressfull, there is minimal margin for error and any errors made must be immediately course-corrected, learned from, and not repeated. It is easy to feel overwhelmed if one does not channel the apprpriate mindset and energy to rise above seemingly impossible situations.
