What does it involve?
General manufacturing operators work in processing, production, assembly or distribution (usually in large businesses or factories). They can become highly skilled in their specific areas and there is room for advancement into team leader, supervisory and management roles.
Typically, an 8-hour day or shift work. General manufacturing workers work on different parts of the processing, production, assembly or distribution lines, learning specific skills for each role. You may also undertake training on specialist equipment and may learn to make minor repairs and maintain the equipment you use.
