Manufacturing team leaders perform a wide variety of tasks, which vary depending on the field in which they work in. They often supervise production to ensure everything is going according to plan. An important aspect of manufacturing team leaders' jobs is to develop their team members into quality workers. Since team leaders are usually more experienced, they can provide valuable insight for less experienced employees, help their teams where needed, and oversee, coach and train their team members. They are usually involved in the hiring process, and can terminate or even promote their team members depending on their merit.
