Auto Factory Worker
In an automotive plant, there are three major components that make up the manufacturing of a car: putting together the exterior shell with the interior frame through welding work, painting and sealing of the car bodies, and performing the actual assembly of the vehicle. This is where materials such as plastics, rubber, steel, glass and fabrics all come into play. There are specific assignments to these units, and therefore the employee can specialize in metal jobs or plastic jobs.
