Sometimes, it feels like we can work miracles.

What do you love most about what you do?
I love the variety in my work. I'm never bored, and I feel that the activities I engage in contribute to creating a more pleasant working environment. Above all, with approximately 600 people at the glass factory, I have 600 opportunities every day to brighten someone's day and do something good.
What is the best advice you've ever received?
Never give up. You must never give up because anything can be achieved with willpower and determination. When faced with challenges, shift into a higher gear and surround yourself with the right people.
What is the most exciting project, memorable moment, or achievement you've worked on recently and why?
I was most impressed by receiving the GZS and AMCham award for the "Together into New Stories" project, which focused on building our employer brand. It was proof that we are on the right track. I believe that through this project and our activities, we convinced many great people to join our team.
What skills or qualities do you believe are essential for success in your industry?
Knowing the company's processes and culture is key. Additionally, being able to multitask, improvise, display persistence, and have a knack for working with people are all important qualities.
What do you think sets our team/company apart from others in the industry?
Our team is exceptionally hardworking and passionate. Each of us puts our whole heart into achieving the best possible results. Sometimes, it feels like we can work miracles.
Tell us a surprising or fun fact about you.
I am a positive person who enjoys putting others in a good mood. I prefer to avoid negative individuals who always see the downside of things. Those who know me well say that I approach work and play with the same level of enthusiasm. I have a passion for traveling, dancing, laughing, socializing, and spending time with my family. I always make time to chat with my colleagues. I believe that's what brings us together. With me, there's no such thing as "it's not possible." I strive to make everything I want to succeed.

There are no soloists in this area.

The biggest challenge at our job comes with the sudden stalling of larger proportions. When the extent and the cause of elimination is known, action can be quick and routine. Otherwise, the situation is usually very complex and can also be stressful. However, it is in such cases that the unity, knowledge, experience and motivation of the team, which is indispensable in the work, are shown. There are no soloists in this area.

Machinists are an important part of our production.

Machinists represent are an important part of our production. Without them, production processes would not run smoothly and as well as they do. The biggest challenge comes when there is some new error that I have not yet encountered and I am trying to fix it. Of course, this is most pronounced on an afternoon or night shift when no technologists are present. But with our combined efforts we always eliminate the issue. Some take a little longer than others, but we are always happy to fix them and learn a lot from them.

We really work with each other as a team

I am employed in the glass packaging sales department. My work broadly covers sales activities, communication with clients and administrative tasks. Our departments are extremely interconnected and we work with each other as a team - when we need to "squeeze in" a few extra hours, we do our best. Employees can only do good work if they have such a team and I am extremely grateful for all the work they have done and the effort they put in daily. And last but not least - we are constantly surrounded by exceptional glass items that we produce. These, give us the extra motivation to present them to customers the way they are meant to be - the best.

My colleagues are very helpful to me

I take care of the proper use of protective equipment, the proper functioning of the machines and devices in the workshop, the provision of sufficient resources for work and the order and cleanliness of the workshop. I must organize a smooth flow of repair, correction, tool control and preparation of tool changes and delivery to the machine. Let me mention that my colleagues are very helpful to me, without which these duties would be impossible to perform.
