Much of the work of a production machinist is done independently, so it is important to be self-driven. Attention to detail is also important, as the goods produced must be assessed for quality. If goods are not coming out as they should, the machinist should evaluate the situation to determine what is wrong.
Working as a production machinist may involve working in a noisy and hectic environment, so it is important not to be sensitive to such conditions. Attention to safety requirements while achieving quality and quantity goals is also important, and work areas must always be maintained and kept tidy.
