Manufacturing Interview Questions

"Manufacturing covers a broad spectrum of jobs, each of which differs in its requirements. The questions you are asked in a manufacturing interview will depend on the tasks you are expected to perform. As most manufacturing jobs revolve around creating components and assembling components into products, you can expect to be interviewed about your ability to perform repetitive assembly line-style tasks with precision and accuracy. You may also be asked about any physical disabilities that would prevent you from lifting heavy objects or performing other typical factory floor tasks."

This was a very 'hands on' interview. No BS questions, but know every manufacturing process you can, regardless how abstract. Same goes for surface finishing, treatments, and manufacturing automation. Also Apple does things very differently, cost is second to quality, So where other manufacturers are stamping sheet metal and molding things out of cheap pot metal, Apple is CNC'ing components, has incredibly tight tolerances, and is highly automated.
