Quality Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Quality Manager?

Quality Manager in New Holland:
"Complicated."
Pros: I can work whatever hours I wish.........
Cons: New position to the company and has been very changing due to the fact that no one wants anything to do with any Quality aspects and Senior management does not support the cause. Seems as though the position exists for outside inspectors wanting it in the processes of the company.

Quality Manager in Anniston:
"Great career."
Pros: I like that I have a great deal of freedom in choosing my own hours, so long as work is completed and they make sense. I have a voice that is heard by my direct superior, which.
Cons: Great deal of responsibility falls completely on my shoulders with nobody working in my department. It is a small company I work for (this location) so there are many duties that fall outside of quality that I am responsible for.
