JOB OVERVIEW

Successful precision manufacturers will demonstrate math competencies in geometry and measurement skills, the ability to interpret technical drawings and read blueprints, critical thinking abilities, awareness of safety standards, knowledge of tools and equipment, strong hand-eye coordination, and the ability to measure and cut items with great accuracy.

In Mississippi, the average skilled precision manufacturer starts in a salary position between $15 - $25/hour, plus benefits.  On top of that employers are quick to raise wages when they see an employee who is dedicated to the company and willing to work hard.

Most employers in Mississippi do not require precision manufacturers to have a four-year degree.  Instead, a two-year diploma and/or industry certificate is adequate; much of the training is on-the-job because employers desire workers who can tailor their skills to company processes.
