Job Description for Production Worker

A production worker describes a worker in a factory, manufacturing, or production setting; these individuals are part of a team of workers responsible for mass production of a specific product. Production workers can perform a variety of tasks, which can include operating machines, assembling equipment or materials, conducting inspections, and conducting quality control. The work is mostly physical and can involve standing for long hours conducting repetitive tasks. They usually work indoors, but factories may become hot, so production workers should be able to withstand those conditions.
