Assembly / Factory Worker

Many assembly jobs require specific color objects to be attached to other specific color objects. Others utilize color-coded bins. Workers can often come up with ways to overcome these obstacles, but many employers do not have the patience for special accommodation, or slower assembly speed.

One worker with the title “twisting operator” commented to me about when he interviewed for his job that requires putting colored yarn onto differently colored plastic tubes. They forbid colorblind applicants, but instead of using a standard test, they took him to the factory floor for a real-world tryout. He was able to do it and got the job… though he admits that he still relies upon color-normal coworkers for some tasks.
