While much of the USA recovers from what has been a tough season, the good news is that there are a number of exciting entry and mid-level careers available in Michigan, a state that has been hit hard by the recession. Some of the top growth industries include manufacturing and logistics for top industrial companies in and around the Monroe area.
Career Outlook for Production and Material Handling Professionals
Candidates who have an interest or background in material production and handling can find rewarding assignments that have above-average starting wages and on-the-job training opportunities. The US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics advises that there will be 48,700 new jobs created in materials handling by the year 2020, with a vast majority of these pros working in warehouses and factories managing product inventories to increase business revenues.
Requirements for Working in Shipping and Receiving, and Production Jobs
Material handlers must have at least a high school diploma or GED, and be able to stand, bend, and lift materials throughout the day with minimal supervision. Material handlers often work indoors, in climate controlled environments as part of a team of workers. Strong mathematics, hand-eye coordination, and time management skills are a plus. Production and shipping workers can expect from 1 to 6 months of training, average salaries of $24,000 USD annually, and rapid career advancement for top performers.
