Simmons Bedding Company - Quilt Operator Ect.
City, STATE, 02/2014 - 02/2019
  • In my time of working with Simmons my previous time I performed many jobs and held many titles.
  • When I began working for Simmons I started as a quilt operator.
  • I learned many different machines in my time quilting. I learned to operate each of the 7 quilters we had at the time and was capable of using them to their fullest capability.
  • There were few times in my five years quilting where I was not producing the numbers required of me. The production pace at the time called for 17 panels an hour but depending upon the work flow I would seldom fall below 20 an hour and more often than not was capable of producing 40+ beds an hour from a single quilter sometimes hitting numbers of 60-70 panels produced in a single hour when it was needed of me and my work was good enough to produce such numbers.
  • In my time of quilting when I started I became part of a team at Simmons. We were the quilting team. On second shift we did not have the experience or numbers of the first shift operators but could still hold our own through team work.
  • I began learning how to use the computer systems in place to track not only production and productivity, but the orders that were required for shipment to build a hyper focused quilt department.
  • With my ability to lead our quilters and run the quilt department I began figuring up numbers that were required for the night. I would look at the work focusing on keeping zone integrity and split the work in the most efficient way possible for us to get the work done.
  • With this ability I was capable of getting our quilting team out the door producing the numbers for the night in only four or five hours as opposed to the 12 the rest of the plant was working.
  • Once I had this knowledge I began working in other places and learning many new jobs. In my time there I learned each and every job in the quilt and sew department. The only machines or jobs that I can not yet do are produce decks and bottoms. I am also not up to speed on using an overcaster machine but can do so and have done so when required of me.
  • I was eventually moved to the shipping department as the lead. I ran the shipping department for several months but after being away from the quilting department it began falling apart.
  • I found myself the lead in shipping but spending the majority of my time in quilt trying to get it running properly often after it was already too late to fix that night.
  • Eventually I was moved back to quilt and ran it as the acting lead for about a year until the position was properly filled. I tried to teach the supervisor and the new lead how the department should run but it was not going well and I began feeling a sense of resentment. I was not properly given the title of lead in quilt. A previous APM was brought back in named Gary who I had worked for for many years. He looked at me as the lead of quilt instead of the one who held the title. I was not capable of making the choices that needed to be made in quilt because I was not the lead and could not and would not override what the lead had instructed to be done yet I was being held accountable for the actions that were being made. A combination of this and my home life at the time resorted in me leaving the company.
  • If I am hired back on I will require no training as opposed to others you may hire for any of your positions. I have done the various jobs for quite a long time and am capable of coming in the door meeting any production requirements you may have.
  • In my time at Simmons I worked with some of the best people around, some of which still work here. I hope to be able to work with your company once more as a quilt operator with many years of experience I am able to share with others or perhaps learn a new position I have not previously done.
Simmons Bedding Company - Border Quilter
City, STATE, 07/2010 - 07/2013

This was my first job at Simmons before I left. I ran three border quilters and what we call a chopsaw while working here the first time.

It is a very fast paced environment and was often capable of getting the work done and off the clock in only a short 4 hours. Seeing as how I have went over several of my duties while working here and you are already aware of the duties in working at your facility I will simply put my reason of departure. My grandfather was in the hospital going into septic shock. I needed to leave to be able to see him because I had lived with him for several years and wasn't sure he would make it through the night. My supervisor at the time was exceedingly rude and I did not agree with the way he handled the situation. He told me the story of him losing his grandfather and not being able to be there to see him and told me that I needed to decide what was more important to me and so I left and never came back.
