You’re headed to the kitchen pantry to grab your favourite HelloAmino baking mix. With the packaging in hand, you begin to wonder…How was this pouch produced so flawlessly? How are the metallic features perfectly popping off the pouch?
The road to Rootree
The daily rundown
In this image, Seth is holding a tear sheet. Tear sheets provide our customers with the opportunity to see a preview of their packaging right off the press. This also allows us to check the colours, metallic details, and special touches before completing the entire production process.
No complaints here
When asked what he loves most about his job, Seth reveals: “I love all the people I work with. I also really enjoy getting to know the HP Indigo press a little better each day!”
In addition to all the learning opportunities his job provides, Seth holds great value in working for a sustainable company like Rootree.
“I really love that Rootree is helping redefine the packaging industry with new refinements in eco-friendly packaging.”
You might be thinking that operating such a large piece of machinery sounds stressful. Ensuring everything runs smoothly when dealing with technology comes with its challenges, but Seth has gained an appreciation for this type of fun and fast-paced environment.
“One of my favourite things about my job is I am constantly learning and fine-tuning my skills as a press operator. My least favourite part is getting asked what my least favourite part about press operating is. I love it.”
With these witty answers, and a strong drive for success, Seth’s enthusiasm always shines and he is a valued team member at Rootree
Like any occupation, being a press operator comes with its own set of challenges, but at the end of the day, it’s extremely rewarding. Teaching other press operators’ tricks and tips he’s learned along the way is one of the most fulfilling aspects of Seth’s job – sharing his knowledge helps others excel in their roles and ultimately makes the production process at Rootree even smoother. As our day in the life of a Rootree press operator wraps up, Seth leaves aspiring press operators with some advice:
“Be patient with the knowledge. It takes time, there is no rush and no need to know everything all at once.”
