Production employees do everything related to manufacturing products. For example, workers who assemble, finish, inspect, pack, and ship manufactured products are production employees. Some support staffers in manufacturing companies, such as maintenance, janitorial, and security workers, are considered production employees, even though they don’t handle the products directly. Staffers who work in the field with customers on behalf of manufacturers are also considered production employees.

Being a production employee can be a physically demanding job that requires long hours sitting or standing at machines or lifting heavy objects. Production employees typically have some technical know-how, such as the ability to operate various types of machines. Teamwork is required for production employees to be successful.
