Career Videos >> Manufacturing >> Packaging and Filling Machine Operators and Tenders video

Nearly every product made is sold in its own unique packaging. Making sure those items are properly packaged is the job of a packaging and filling machine operator. Whether it’s bagging items, rolling sheets, filling containers, making blister packs, wrapping, or boxing, packaging readies the product for display and purchase. Operators move materials to and from production areas -- manually or with forklifts, dollies, carts, or handtrucks. They set up, tend and sometimes repair machines on-the-job. In some situations, operators feed and monitor automatic equipment. No special education is required for this entry-level job. Just a high school diploma or its equivalent. Operators work on their feet, lifting containers, running equipment and inspecting machines. Overtime may be required. Someone looking for a steady position that requires few specific skills may want to work as a packaging or filling machine operator.
