Learn To Work Together

Everyone is having difficulties adjusting to the new work loads and atmosphere, including myself. Runs are bigger than ever, days are longer. No matter how much we complain about it, the truth is, they are here to stay. After all it is a business. The community is always expecting to read our bread and butter. I am sure all of us are feeling tired of the long hours, sometimes working through our lunch breaks and until we don't learn how to work together, things will be difficult. Some are use to say: I just come here, put in my time and go home... That is fine, but it does not have to be as hard. Knowing the equipment is just half of it and is no secret that most of our fellow presspeople that had joined us from our former San Fernando Facility don't know the patterns of the webs and balloons. There is nothing wrong about stepping up and ask somebody, provably some still feeling hostile about change, but some of us are willing to help. Ask....Ask, show a little pride, it won't hurt. But like I said Knowing the equipment is just HALF OF IT. Also is about TEAM work, learn how to work together, you will be surprise how easy your days will be. This is not about the company, is about making the transition easier, about making our job a lot easier to perform and have fun at the same time. Show pride about your trade, don't be proud and be an ignorant, after all if we make things easier for ourselves, we are also making it easier for the people around us, our friends.
