Can you produce?  Many manufacturing companies look for mechanical assemblers who can work quickly and accurately and even sometimes a production line environment.  I think it’s important for you to have with you stats that you can reference and show the interviewer to prove your track record of producing.  You should know your production stats for your previous jobs, and when I need production stats I don’t mean the teams I mean your production stats and what your teams’ production stats were.  When you try to do is to show that you can pull your weight.

Measure twice cut once.  In your mechanical assembler job interview I can guarantee that you will be asked about your quality of work and attention to detail.  You need to be able to convince the job interview or that you have the ability to pay attention to details, and that you are meticulous with the measurements.  It would be good to have an example ready of when you avoided in error by measuring twice or how you notice an error before anybody else did because you were able to hone in on the details.
