My job at Silhouette International
I am a machine setter and deputy department head. Roughly speaking, we take care of the prints on our eyewear frames. We have to set the machine so precisely that the print ends up exactly where it is supposed to according to the specifications. That means accurate, precise work – I like that. As deputy department head, I also take care of delegating tasks, communicating with other departments and just making sure that everything runs smoothly and correctly.
What I like best about it
What I like best is that Silhouette takes such good care of us employees. We have a very pleasant working environment with great people. It is never boring and my job is always full of new tasks and challenges for me. And of course, it really is a fantastic feeling knowing that our eyewear is worn all over the world.
How I got here
I used to be a salesperson, something I did for many years. But there was no future where we were living, so we moved and I applied for a job at Silhouette International. I have now been here more than ten years, working in many departments, learning a lot and taking many courses until I ended up where I am now – and there is still so much to learn.
