A good place to work and learn
Production, Maintenance & Warehouse Executive (Former Employee) –  Petaling Jaya6 March 2018
Work is challenging and fun, you will learn about the importance of quality and not quantity. The management is very supportive in improving efficiency, output and cost cutting.

I have learned how important is decision making, scheduling production demands, managing resources and etc.

The most challenging part when there is no spare parts, think out of the box.

The most enjoyable part is when you meet your demands and everything going as planned.
Pros
Free breakfast and lunch

If you enter as mid-career professional, you'll find yourself stagnant...career progression priorities are typically given to Management Trainees. Unfortunate culture for the rest of the folks, but it is what it is.
