When it comes to assembly and manufacturing jobs, there are a lot of myths and stereotypes that prevent a person from even considering filling out an application. These myths that turn people away from a career in the manufacturing industry are harmful, because an assembly job could be perfect for you.
Don’t be fooled by the anti-hype. The city of San Antonio is a national leader in the manufacturing industry, so it’s a great place to get a job in assembly. Here are three common myths about assembler jobs.
1. Benefits & Pay
Assembly jobs have inherited a bad reputation from the past (think of 20th century assembly lines like Ford Motor Company) when there were few laws and regulations in place to protect workers. Injury was common, pay was low, and benefits didn’t exist. But that was many decades ago.
Through Tri-Starr Group, you can find assembly jobs with pay between $10-15 an hour and solid health benefits.
You might think that a job in the manufacturing industry is a dead-end career, but that’s just not the case.
Employers do not want to hire workers who are not interested in self-improvement, learning, and growth within the company. If you enhance your skills, show real effort, and a desire to grow, opportunities to advance often arise.
The myth of a lack of safety in the workplace is another that stems from the manufacturing industry of the past.
If you take an assembly job, you will always be wearing the correct equipment: safety glasses, gloves, steel toe boots, etc. You will also receive extensive job and safety training to ensure that you feel comfortable using any machinery or operating any equipment.
While safety can be a struggle for some companies, Tri-Starr has our employees’ backs. The companies we work with conduct daily safety checks, and Tri-Starr personally evaluates whether our partner companies are following and enforcing safety guidelines at the beginning of each relationship, then on a quarterly basis for the duration of our staffing partnership.
Tri-Starr Group also supports the San Antonio Manufacturers Association (SAMA), a group working to ensure city and regional officials and policy makers understand what’s necessary for manufacturers to continue to thrive by actively monitoring related issues and participating in local government.
