Employment Prospects


Most setup operators work in factories that make cars, trucks, planes, and other types of machinery. While they work in every state, most jobs are located in the midwestern, northeastern, and far western sections of the United States. Most are found in or near major metropolitan areas, such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Detroit. Since many manufacturers have moved operations outside the United States, fewer jobs of this nature are available than in years past.
