Production technician jobs cover a wide range of jobs in two major areas – product (or “discrete”) and process manufacturing. If you’re a firm looking to hire a production technician, it’s important that you work with a team of staffing professionals who understand the difference because the same job title can require a very different skillset.

In general, production technician jobs often require the performance the following tasks:
- Calibrate or adjust equipment to ensure quality production
- Inspect finished product for quality and adherence to customer specifications
- Monitor and adjust processes or equipment for quality and productivity
- Troubleshoot problems with equipment, devices, or products
