Bottomer machine operator

Mondi Paracin
Serbia

My name is Dušan R. Milosavljević and I work as a Bottomer machine operator in Mondi Sabac PJ Paracin. I joined Mondi in 2013 and started as a Tuber helper. Throughout the time I was able to change my role, work on different machines and get to understand different production steps. Right now I am responsible for our Bottomer machine and making sure that everything runs smoothly.

I came across Mondi …  after returning from college, which I actually did not finish. I started looking for a job and heard from a friend about Mondi. It has been 10 years since then and I am happy to be part of this team.

What I like most about Mondi is … the work environment and the team I work with the most. We have been working together for a long time and know each other very well. This creates a nice atmosphere at work.

When joining Mondi, I would have never thought that … when I started working at Mondi, I didn't even think I could develop into different roles, but I studied from year to year, gained more experience and took over more responsibilities.

What I like most about my job … in my current position, I like the opportunity to influence the final product, the responsibility for the quality of the final product and the fact that through various challenges I can improve myself and share experiences with my colleagues so that we all learn together.

If my family asks me what my job is about, I explain  that we turn a semi-finished product into a final product, a mailer bag, by adjusting the machine accordingly. In addition, I repair and maintain the machine, as well as take care of a safe workplace.

My greatest challenge so far has been … definitely switching our production and remodelling the machines for producing mailer bags. After more than a year, every day we have new challenges in our production.

The best advice I ever got was … not to rush and think about everything before making a decision. Every problem should be viewed from as many angles as possible.

My future career path leads me to … I hope to continue to make progress in terms of my knowledge, which I believe will open up new possibilities.
