Employers prefer to hire applicants who have good basic skills. These skills include reading, writing, and speaking English. Many employers require employees to have a high school diploma or GED. Employers also look for people with good verbal and people skills. Mechanical aptitude and manual dexterity are also helpful. Employers look for strong analytical skills in applicants for set-up operator positions.
Advancement for operators usually takes the form of higher pay. However, there are also opportunities for operators to advance to new positions. For example, they can run multiple machines or become set-up operators. They can become trainees for more highly skilled jobs such as machinists. Manual machine operators can move on to computer numerically controlled (CNC) equipment. These types of machines are controlled by computers and are much more complex. Thus, operators usually need more training to advance to operating CNC equipment. Set-up operators who have good people skills may advance to supervisory jobs.
