Quality Control (QC) Technician Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Quality Control (QC) Technician in Heath:
"Good pay, but very fast-paced."
Very good pay -- probably the highest salaries in the area. QC lab is very fast-paced. Two technicians to check product on 6 lines. Multiple steps required for each testing start-up. You feel like you are "almost caught up" every day. Very stressful. Working an off shift makes matters worse due to lack of support from senior lab leadership (they work days). Difficult to determine what it would take to excel -- business as usual with no real chance for relief of the situation in sight. Golden handcuffs applies here. You hate to leave the high pay, but you question if you can do this for an extended period.
