Young, Determined, but No Authority

Posted by Christian Parker on Feb 5, 2019 10:11 am

myASQ Community,

Hi. my name is Christian Parker. I received my 1st job at a chemical plant as a chemist/lab tech and a ISO9001 consultant (due to the untimely event of the company's old QA leader demise).

It's wonderful to be lead auditor certified, or else I would not have gotten this job (tons of lab techs applied, I was the only one who knew of ISO). 

I have had training, and am well educated (as I graduated magna cum laude with an honors science degree); but I'm not 100% familiar with all the processes, since I've only been here 3 months. A lot of what they do here is "old-school" (all paper-work filed on paper v. online, 45/50 of the employees at the small plant are at least 50-60+ years old) and I have a few questions I'd like to ask as I work my up to QA leader for my end goal of improving the company's QMS as we continue to maintain registration.

Nice to meet you all!

Regards,

Chris
