What are some work-readiness skills manufacturing employers are expecting from applicants? In our last post, Skills to be Hirable and Productive, we brought to light what some of the most sought after soft skills are. However, some very basic skills are needed as well. They include:
Showing up to work
Coming to work on time
Adhering to the company dress code
Arriving to work presentable and ready to work
Avoiding arriving to work under the influence
Arriving to work with any necessary tools, equipment, or vehicles that were assigned to you
If you believe you can achieve these basic skills, then working for a manufacturing company may be right for you. Be sure to read job descriptions of positions in their entirety before applying to ensure you will be a good choice.
Once you are hired, be sure to read your company’s handbook to stay compliant within your workplace. If you are unsure of a company’s policies, review your on-boarding packet, speak to your floor supervisor, or speak with your HR Director.
Whether you are looking to gain entry into a manufacturing company, or you desire to stay within your company’s standards, be sure to find the answers you are looking for to be work-ready and fully prepared. No matter how skilled you are, your attitude towards your job and your work ethic reflect how much you value your position. Employers are searching for people who are responsible, reliable, and willing to work hard. They see these character traits as critical components of an effective employee or a potential new hire.
