Heidi, QA Operations Team Supervisor at GSK Heidi


QA Operations Team Supervisor

Why did you join GSK? What makes GSK a great place to work?

I joined GSK because of its reputation and the opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company. GSK is a great place to work because of the people and the mission - GSK serves many medical needs and health issues that are important to society. GSK is a great place to work because it has excellent benefits and it challenges you to be the best you can be.

What have you learnt and enjoyed?

I have learned to understand both sides to a story - every situation has more than one answer. I have enjoyed adapting GSK policy and procedure to our new GSK site.

"I went from a non-supervisory role to supervising 4 employees. "

What responsibility and progression have you experienced so far?

In the first 6 months of employment at GSK I was promoted to a supervisory role. GSK believes that performers should be rewarded. I had previous experience as a leader and I used my experience to contribute on a high level.

What are your career aspirations and how do you see GSK supporting that?

I have always been a person who is self driven and aspires to improve in everything I do. I appreciate the fact that GSK rewards those types of people. I want to continue to grow in my role and as long as I perform GSK will continue to grow my responsibility. I would like to reach a director level with GSK.

"GSK provides a great balance."

GSK expect the best of you but at the same time respect your family life. They provide excellent benefits and perks, which make it very attractive for employees to stay with the company.

What would be the 3 main points you would sell to prospective applicants interested in GSK?
