Manufacturing and production is a "job", not a career. If you are creative and a free thinker, this is not the field for you. Lots of tedious, monotonous work where you follow orders with no opportunity to shine.
I worked as a production worker at an assembly plant for car parts. I would never go into this career again. I got paid too little and was very overworked. The only pro about this job was at certain times of the year, there was a lot of opportunity to work overtime.
