Biggest challenge? Remodelling our machines for a new line of products! Get to know Dušan from Mondi Paracin.
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.
