"Colleagues are the best part of the job, of course – there’s a low threshold for asking them for advice"
Teemu Hirvi, seasonal worker
Teemu Hirvi had worked through a staffing company at Anora's Rajamäki factory, and in the summer of 2020, he decided to apply directly for a position as a seasonal employee at the factory. What motivated Teemu to apply were Anora's work atmosphere and meaningful tasks.
At Rajamäki, Teemu has had the chance to work with machines in several different production lines, which has made the whole process familiar. For several summers already, Teemu has been working on the so-called R6 line, where the team is relaxed but also absolute professionals. "There’s a low threshold for asking your colleagues about things that you’re unsure about," says Teemu. The R6 line aims to ensure a cooperative atmosphere and a dynamic way of working: if a problem occurs somewhere, the operators of other machines also rush to the spot. This is also talked about as part of the orientation process of new employees.
According to Teemu, the most challenging part of the job is the various disruption situations that can come up on the line and reacting to them based on your know-how. At Rajamäki, this challenge has been concretely addressed with a new project, the purpose of which is to bring the instructions for each line's tasks up to date and into the same format. "The project has been useful and significantly improves orientation," says Teemu. The best part of the job is also clear to Teemu: "My co-workers, of course."
As a workplace, Teemu considers Anora to be of high quality thanks to a competitive salary level and the flexible management of the bottling side. Another big plus is the Rajamäki workplace canteen.
