Manufacturers can produce parts for wooden dining chairs, plastic patio loungers and metal coffee tables quickly and cost-efficiently by using machines. However, these pieces, especially for more complex creations, must be put together by furniture assembly workers. These employees typically work full-time, with evening and weekend shifts in plants that have extended schedules.

Duties

Furniture assemblers first study the instructions, specifications or blueprints for putting the furniture pieces together. Designers, engineers and managers may have worked with them previously to ascertain the assembly of a new design. Assemblers then use manual and power tools to join components, and adhesives, nails and screws to hold them together. They inspect the finished products for defects, record production information through computers and scanners, and must often meet or exceed a quota of finished goods each workday. Assemblers typically work in teams, with each member responsible for one particular task.

Qualifications

No formal education is necessary for many furniture assembly jobs, although a high school education is helpful especially if it includes courses in shop, computer operation and communication. Workers typically learn their skills from more experienced employees or through formal training by supervisors. They must be able to read and write basic English to understand instructions, have basic counting skills so they can ensure the completeness of components, and be able to operate scanners, computer terminals and basic tools. They must also follow safety procedures to avoid injuries to themselves and others.
