Audrey Coatmelec - Team Leader, La Haie-Fouassière
My Mondelēz International Experiences so far…
I was first attracted to Mondelēz International because I love its products and brands – like Milka, LU and Cote d’Or. For me it’s really important to love what you make to enjoy a job working on a production line.
I joined Mondelēz International as a Continuous Improvement trainee in the Paille d’Or plant. Before my arrival, I received a full schedule for the week, well prepared by my supervisor. Then on the first day I received training about safety and hygiene before spending time on the production line to meet the team and start learning the processes. I also had meetings with people from different functions, including process experts, a Continuous Improvement coach…The goal was to understand their tasks and roles and how they would be able to help me for my project.
After only 4 months in that role, my supervisor offered me a Team Leader position. I was really grateful that she trusted me enough to give me more responsibilities. I knew that in this role, I would develop my technical skills and my competences. That's how, at the end of my internship, I received an offer for a team leader contract.
In my role now, I supervise a team of ten people. This means developing the team, clearly communicating plans to the team members and listening to their feedback, as well as building a great team environment while ensuring compliance with manufacturing procedures in terms of safety and hygiene. In order to achieve this, I lead a daily meeting to analyse performance across a number of key indicators, including safety, quality, delivery, cost and morale. This allows us to define the daily priorities, objectives and actions. I also work on projects which allow us to identify areas for improvement, root causes, and implement changes.
My favorite Mondelēz International product is Milka... In all varities!
