Job Description for Millwright
Millwrights, or manufacturing foremen, are responsible for installing, repairing and generally maintaining manufacturing machinery and equipment. They have a thorough working knowledge of mechanics and they know how to use industrial tools such as drills, power saws, welding torches, grinders, measuring equipment and many others to perform their job duties safely and correctly. Millwrights are sometimes involved in the planning and design stages of building different kinds of machinery. They are also responsible for inspecting machinery on a regular basis to predict and prevent mechanical failure.

Excellent reading comprehension, and verbal and written communication skills are required. Good leadership skills are a must, since millwrights may be responsible for overseeing the work of other employees. As long as these other requirements are met, only a high school diploma or GED are typically required. Although millwrights mostly work indoors, they may deal with extreme hot or cold temperatures, and a good amount of manual labor, bending and lifting is common.
