3rd shift Case Room/Gallon Blow Mold 03/2014 to Present
Dean Foods Co. Rochester, In

This is a two part job, the case room is 2 nights a week, and the blow mold is the other 3 nights.

  The case room responsibilities are:

1) Unloading the empty milk cases and empty milk bossies 

     from the trailers that are put up at the dock; 

2) While production is running, the cases are unloaded off

     the truck and run through the case washer. 

3) If production is not running, the cases are stacked for

    future use. The bossy carts are unloaded and run through

    the bossy washer.

   Gallon Blow Mold is the department that produces a gallon bottle by way of the blowmold machine. The operators are trained to set up the machine; make any necessary adjustments; keep the machine free of any dirt or debris that may effect the machine operation; start and stop the machine when necessary; make sure the correct ID labels are being placed correctly on the bottle; overseeing the dater which scans a date, the time, and the plant code on the bottle; keep bottles off the floor and keep the area clean and safe; use calculations for different size orders from certain stores and tally up all numbers at the end of the shift.

2nd shift 1/2 Gallon Filler 01/2013 to 03/2014
Dean Foods Co. Rochester, In

1/2 Gallon Filler Operator is accountable for ensuring the right fluid milk is going into the correct bottle, has the proper label, the date is readable, and the bottle has the accurate color of cap for the product. The operator is also responsible for making sure the correct amount of fluid milk is in the bottle by weighing them and recording the weight, running the amount of bottles the order calls for, and changing the tank of milk to a different tank when the order is over. When the orders are done for the day and time allows, the operator is responsible for breaking down the machine, putting the parts in a tank that cleans them, scrubs and foams the actual machine, rinses it off, and putting it back together with the clean parts, and also recording the amount of product run for the day.

  I requested another job that was open as this job was going to be eliminated.

3rd shift Gallon Blow Mold 10/2011 to 01/2013

This job was eventually eliminated.

3rd shift Cooler Load Out 09/2005 to 10/2011

  I bid on a different job with a higher class of pay.

Vacation Relief 08/2001 to 09/2005
Dean Foods Co. Rochester, In

Vacation Relief is a position that requires you to cover other employees when they are on vacation for a week or more. You may do one job one week and be on a different job the next, as well as shifts, depending who is on vacation. There were 7 employees with the vacation relief title when I was in that department. You chose your jobs by seniority by a list of employees who were going to be on vacation on a certain week. This was a good job to learn how to do various jobs in the plant.

  I bid on a different job to be consistently on one shift rather than all three shifts as the position required.

3rd shift 1/2 Gallon Blow Mold 06/2000 to 08/2001

Same description as stated in the Gallon Blow Mold, only producing a half gallon bottle instead.

A Cooler Load Out employee is responsible for completing a certain load from a specific customer (i.e.Wal-Mart, Meijer etc.) by driving around the cooler on a fork truck and picking the items correctly that the store has ordered and putting it on a pallet to be loaded on the trailer. Some stores require the use of a hand scanner to keep track of the products on the pallet. The employee is also responsible for calculating numbers at the end of each load to be recorded on a sign out sheet.

  I eventually bid on a different job for a better class of pay.

3rd shift Clean Up 10/1998 to 12/1998
Dean Foods Co. Rochester, In

 The clean up position requires you to clean certain areas of the plant after production and during production.  Responsibilities include, and are not limited to, the sanitizing and cleaning of stainless steel pipes, milk cans, clamps, and gaskets used in the production process; taking apart and cleaning the piece of equipment called a blender, which blends powders used in the dairy process; scrubbing floors with a floor scrubber, cleaning drains, cleaning the break room and bathrooms and any other duties that may be assigned to you to clean.
