Working as a packaging operator in manufacturing

You’ve been hired as a packaging operator in a company that produces and packages their own product. At the moment, you’re in the product packaging hall together with the warehouse manager.

Since this is your first day on the job, the manager makes sure to walk you through all the details of your daily responsibilities. He starts by explaining that being one of the final checkpoints between the manufacturer and the buyer, you have to perform some very important tasks.

Aside from loading the products into containers after being packaged, and weighing and labeling them, your main focus should be to inspect and maintain the machinery and systems used for processing products. These include barcode scanners, conveyor belts, forklifts, etc. After checking the machinery and labeling the products, you should make sure that packages make it to their designated locations, such as loading zones or into inventory.

At the end of the onboarding, the warehouse manager gives you a challenge to find a flaw in one of the systems, as well as to pack, weigh and label some of the products. Make sure to do these activities in the right order and don’t forget to assign their location.

After this training, you should be ready to handle common challenges that come with the role of packaging operator.
