Road mobility is fundamental to human development, but its growth poses enormous challenges. Today, there are more than one billion motor vehicles on the road worldwide, a number that could rise to over 1.5 billion in 2020. More than 60% of the world's oil output is used in transportation. Around the world, fuel efficiency and emissions standards are being tightened in response to the growing scarcity of fossil fuels, climate change and the need to protect the environment, especially in urban areas. To meet this challenge, the industry is undergoing a profound shift towards cleaner, more connected road mobility that makes more efficient use of energy and raw materials.

Maintenance Specialist

“The size of the plant in Olsztyn and the amount of expenditure on implementing new solutions can surprise everyone”
Robert , Maintenance Specialist
Robert

I work in the department of confection at the Passenger Tyres Plant as a Maintenance Specialist, my duties include, first and foremost, supervising the technical condition of the machines under my supervision and maintaining it at a constant high level. Additionally, I run projects aimed at developing applied technologies and ensuring continuity of spare parts. There is no routine work day in my position. Of course, there are repetitive activities such as morning analysis of failure reports for the last 24 hours, reliability analyzes of machines and work on project management, while the rest of the day can change 360 ​​degrees compared to planned activities. This is mainly due to situations in which I support current Maintenance in activities aimed at diagnosing and repairing defects as soon as possible. My adventure with Michelin began with an apprenticeship in a high school (Electronic and Telecommunications School Complex in Olsztyn, 2012), I was directed to the vulcanization department at the Passenger Tyres Plant where I did two weeks of apprenticeship for the Mechatronics Technician profile. After graduating from school, I started extramural studies and submitted a CV to the Michelin recruitment department. I started working in 2014 as the "Maintenance Worker", it was in the Maintenance Department of the department of confection, where I started shift work. After about 3 years and graduating from first degree studies, I received proposals to take up the current position in the Group of Maintenance Specialists. Every year, I participate in several trainings that develop my competences or knowledge. The training offer is very wide, both in technical areas and training in soft skills. In addition, I work on a modern machine park, thanks to which I have contact with the latest technological solutions used in industry. What I like the most in my work is the lack of routine, constant challenges and great opportunities. Every day I face new problems resulting from modification of machines, introduction of new ranges of assortments or working out already known problems. In addition, in consultation with the Construction Office, I can introduce new, pioneering solutions in the machine park under my supervision. I think that the size of the plant in Olsztyn and the amount of expenditure on implementing new solutions can surprise everyone. From the outside, people do not see everything that employees, I mean the whole factory is a "small city in the city", with its own transport, canteens, fire brigade, ambulance, etc. In addition, huge expenditure on the implementation of new technologies only confirms the fact that it is the largest and most modern factory in Europe.

„There is no monotony at work”

I’ve been working for Michelin since 2017. I’m a chem lab quality process engineer in the Main Laboratory. My most important task is taking care of quality, which means ensuring the safety of the customers by providing reliable results. My adventure with Michelin started in 2015 during student internship in the Main Laboratory. I had the opportunity to write my Master’s thesis on renewable energy sources used by Michelin. In the meantime, still doing full-time studies I started to work as a lab tech in 4-brigade system in the Main Laboratory. After graduation I became an Independent Process Engineer. Michelin is also a family company for me. My grandparents worked here and my Dad still works in the factory. What I like in Michelin is the opportunity to work among friends and close people. I also took advantage of the employee recommendation programme and I helped a person close to me to find a good job in a great team and I got a reward myself. What surprised me the most in Michelin so far is people, their openness and willingness to help. There is always someone I can ask for help, people want to share their experience and knowledge. I think that my job from the very beginning had a great influence on my personal and professional development. I benefit from taking part in French language course, taking part in both professional and soft skills trainings and I work in a versatile team, exchange experience with my workmates. Because of all these things there is no space for monotonny at work, I still have motivation and energy for my development. Therefore, I really like my job.

Sector Manager

„Each day is different”
Paweł , Sector Manager

I’ve been working for Michelin since 2001. I started as an independent organizer. Once I gained experience and did trainings, I became a Sector Organizer and then I was promoted to a Sector Manager where EI suits (parts of the forms) are produced, in the Form Production Plant. My daily duties are: review of the previous day data, rounds in the workshop, team meetings to check if everything is ok and if they need suport during their everyday tasks or in solving some other problems, level 1 and 2 of MQP meetings (internal abbreviation regarding meetings for performance management aimed at progress generating). I participate in meetings, manage everyday issues and the improvement of my sector performance. I think that manager’s job will always influence personal and professional development because each day brings new experience and provides opportunities to improve cooperation with other people, to help solve and understand their problems. Work on production requires constant striving for better performance, development of your competencies to achieving goals. Every day we face new challenges which shape our characters. Every day I learn something new. What I like in my current job is working with other people. It’s not working constantly in front of the computer, most of the tasks require cooperation with different people. Each day is different and there is no room for boredom. I think that good organization and commitment allow to predict different situations in your environment. Outside of work, I’m keen on volleyball. It’s my hobby that I can’t live without. In the past I represented some clubs in Poland. Now I represent and play in Cresovia Górowo Iławeckie Team in the third division. During the year we play about 20 matches in the division plus matches in amateur leagues.  I think that my biggest success is promotion from the second to the first division of the men’s volleyball and a bronze medal with AZS UWM OLSZTYN at the European Universities Championship. Another success is that as a coach of the youth group of AZS UWM OLSZTYN I have the opportunity to share my knowledge.

„It’s an amazing challenge to make such a total revolution in the production hall”
Ewelina , Automation Project Engineer

For the first time I saw Michelin from the inside during my summer internship while I was doing my master’s degree in the field of Mechatronics at Warsaw University of Technology. If I hadn’t known it from the inside I would have never considered working for Michelin. I was thinking about working in Poznań, where I did a course in engineering or about some other city in Poland. It was my Dad who said: „Why don’t you do the internship in Michelin?”. Anyway I was spending holiday in my home town so I thought it was a good idea. That’s how it started… I started to work for Michelin in September 2014, in the Construction Office as a Project Ingineer Automatic but in a getaway, not local team. It meant that I worked in Olsztyn but for other Michelin factories. My projects included Europe -France, Italy, Spain, Germany, etc. At the beginning I worked as the so-called machine referent – I was responsible for documentation, I participated in the whole bidding proces, in choosing subcontractors and I made sure that machine was assembled in accordance with the documentation. I did and supervised all these things from Olsztyn, I got to the place only in the final stage of the project for the machine start-up and acceptance. I used to spend approximately 30% of my time away from home. After 3 years I could tell it was time to get to know the factory in Olsztyn and work locally. Michelin gave me such an opportunity. I knew that during my work in Olsztyn I could see my project from the very beginning to the end without remote supervision. On the one hand, I gained a lot of experience during my business trips and saw the other factories but on the other hand now I work with people that I know and it makes working on projects much easier. I know where to turn directly in a given case. Such work brings me a lot of satisfaction. Among the jobs that I got there is a very big project called Automatic Palletizing in the Passenger Tyre Factory. Under this project we rebuilt the manual palletizing hall. The old transporters were disassembled and there was installed a new automated transportation system and two lines of automatic warehouses with palletizing robots at the end of each of them. It was a very interesting experience for me. It’s an amazing challenge to make such a total revolution in the production hall”. I participated in this project from the very beginning – from removing the parquet floor through disassembling the old machines to starting-up the new palletizing system and it all was happening during current production. It wasn’t like we got the hall and could make changes – we did it slowly – step by step. It allowed me to gain a lot of valuable experience and to see what the organization of production looks like. Apart from interesting projects, it’s great that Michelin provides the whole package of trainings. My work started from robot programming and PLC controller programming workshops, on which we work. Technology continuously progresses – new range of controllers, new software versions are introduced and there is no problem to subscribe to such training in Michelin – you have to be up to date to create new solutions.
