Executive Learns Early On that Manufacturing Career is not Only Lucrative, it is Fun

Carol Peters didn’t think of her first manufacturing job as the initial step of a career path in the industry; it was just a job to make some money during college. But her early experiences in the industry changed her perception and today she is the director of operations for water heater manufacturer A. O. Smith’s Johnson City, (TN), plant.

“I didn’t exactly pick a manufacturing career; it picked me and I don’t regret it for a minute,” she said. “My vision of manufacturing was not of a place to have a career, it was a place to make some money while you figured out what you really wanted to do. Six months after I started, I re-enrolled in college, changing my degree from physical education to business.”

Peters notes she learned four things from her first job in manufacturing that debunked some myths about the industry:

Most manufacturing facilities are not dark, dirty factories; they are clean, bright and organized.

Manufacturing pays well in comparison to other industries.
