It goes without saying that every job is different, but if you’re looking for a job right NOW, what are some of the standard requirements for a production job in the food and beverage processing industry?
Frontline food production jobs typically include entry-level positions and intermediate-skill-level positions. Entry-level positions require no prior experience, and a secondary school diploma might be preferred but is not required. On-the-job training and job shadowing is key for these positions.
Intermediate-skill workers typically have six months to one year of experience already working in food and beverage processing or a similar manufacturing environment. A secondary school diploma is preferred, but it’s not a requirement. On-the-job training is provided, including food safety training.
Being a frontline food worker requires a range of skills. However, there are a few that are more essential than others. These skills include the ability to work at a fast pace and attention to detail. An eye for detail helps ensure operations run smoothly. Not paying attention can lead to products being made incorrectly or in the wrong packaging, or it could lead to health or safety issues.
