Coater Operator - Hutchinson, MN - January 9, 2022
Good pay with good benefits. Get to be a part of some really cool processes in manufacturing. Depending on what shift you work and area that you're working in can make it good or great. Short notice over time which means on Wednesday you find out if you have to work the weekend. There was times I worked 7 days a week for week(s)

Supply Chain and unit cost computation - July 15, 2021
I started working in 3M Viet Nam in 1997, as a plant accountant but at that time our containers of machinery were in customs. I helped the forwarder to clear all these machinery containers so that 3M Viet Nam could start their first production as schedule. In the meantime I worked also as cost accounting as each items imported or bought locally need a cost report so the sales department could get approval from Management for their sales price. I was promoted to Supply Chain Manager couple years later and I had total 10 staff working at inventory planning, customer service, customs clearance. In 2007 I resigned and moved to an export company which my 3M Managing Director took position as Director. So I spent 10 years with 3M VN.
