Ingredients for Success
Companies value people who exhibit good work ethics and communication skills. Your ability to work as part of a team is as important to your success as it is to the company's. Nearly all production workers need a high level of manual dexterity, basic literacy and math skills. The speed and accuracy of your work affect product cost and profitability, so competency is an important consideration.
Duties: Working as part of a team, employees complete one or more tasks as another step towards creation, finishing, inspecting or shipping. Quotas must be met on time, discrepancies identified, quality issues rectified, safety issues fixed along the way, and get the product to the warehouse in perfect condition for shipping. The ability of production to meet deadlines keeps orders moving out to customers keeps them happy and coming back for more. That's job security.
Future possibilities: In today's environment, production workers proving their competency will likely rise quickly to lead or supervisory positions, or some other specialty position within their department. Employers are always watching for their best personnel to fill future supervisory and management jobs that come open from time to time.
