Confectionery Industry Workers

Work Environment

Most confectionery workers in the United States work in large candy making factories; many other workers are employed in plants with fewer than 20 workers. Most plants are modern, clean, and well lighted. Workers who tend machines must exercise caution, but working conditions generally are safe. The work is usually not physically demanding but can be tiring. Like many kinds of production work, some jobs in this field involve a great deal of repetition and routine, since each worker performs only a few tasks. Confectionery workers usually work 38 to 40 hours a week. They are often provided with uniforms to wear on the job.
