Sanitation Supervisor Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Sanitation Supervisor in Santa Rosa:
"This Makes Money If You're Willing To Get Dirty And Put In Time."
If you enjoy getting dirty while getting places and machines clean, and have a back for leadership, this position is for you. If you have lots of sanitation experience, don't sell yourself short!!! Most people work sanitation/ cleaning validation and move on quickly. If you have 5 years plus, stick it through and wait for the right place to find you. Market yourself well and work on your experience with HACCP programs and QA/QC. This is an undervalued position that is very important. When a company looses sight if that, the structure suffers and they find that they need leadership with experience in this field.
