Job Description

What an ASSEMBLY LINE WORKER does:

Assembly Line Workers put together parts of manufactured products to form sections or finished products. They usually work as part of a team at a workstation along an assembly line completing a designated section of the product before moving it along to the next station. Assembly lines are widely used in manufacturing and can involve work tasks such as installing, mounting, fastening, aligning, wiring, connecting, soldering, sanding, painting, stitching, gluing, cutting, or shaping various product parts. Air powered tools or hand tools are used in many kinds of assembly work. At some stations, assemblers may operate large automated equipment and their job is to keep the machines supplied with necessary materials. Assemblers often work in rotating shifts. High quality and high volume work is expected and quotas are often set to encourage maximum production. Successful parts assemblers are hard-working employees who can stay focused, pay attention to detail, and perform repetitive tasks over long periods of time; they are physically fit, safety conscious and able to work well with others.

The two charts below illustrate the level of skill you need to be successful in this job. The two charts show two different measurement scales - the Essential Skills scale and the Literacy and Basic Skills Learning Outcomes Matrix. You will see the numbers are different. Here's why.

The Essential Skills scale uses levels one to five to describe skills ranging from beginner, at level one,  to higher than a post-graduate level at university, level 5. The LBS Learning Outcomes Levels also uses levels one to five to describe skills but the LBS range goes from beginner, at level 1,  to approximately Grade 9, (LBS level 5). This means that skills at  level 4 in LBS fall within the level 2 range on the Essential Skills Scale. If this is confusing, don't worry. The main thing is, although the numbers are different, they are actually talking about the same level of skill.
