A leader in industrial staffing solutions, American StaffCorp regularly places candidates in this field. Here are three skills required to be an outstanding transmission assembler, based on our years of experience:
Attention to Detail
Succeeding as a transmission assembler requires a detail-oriented mindset. After all, this job involves putting together pieces, many of which are small, and doing so in the correct order. Making even a tiny mistake can cause the final product to suffer or malfunction. If you’re meticulous and highly efficient, however, this job will likely be ideal.
It’s not enough to be good with your hands. Transmission assemblers must also possess a solid educational background. Generally, employers in search of transmission assemblers seek out candidates with basic math skills. Additionally, you should be able to read blueprints and manuals and work with machines and assembly robots. The best transmission assemblers are also computer savvy and able to pick up new skills quickly.
Some degree of physical prowess is required in this field. On occasion, a transmission assembler may be called upon to lift heavy or oddly shaped objects as part of the assembly process. And because you will likely have to be on your feet for at least some of the workday, you should have a good amount of stamina to work in this field. Finally, assemblers should be able to perform repetitive motions without pain or discomfort.
