How to express skills when applying for a factory job with no experience?
I'm applying for a job currently that my parents told me about. I guess for the summer, factories hire college kids full time temporally. Anyhow, I have legit, NO experience for a factory job, so anyone have something i could put that sounds impressive without being a complete liar? haha

It's best to be honest, and tell them you're willing to learn. Wouldnt want to get hurt on the job. Having impressive references might help, like clergy, people who own businesses, etc. Good luck.

Just explain your personality; team-player, problem-solver, detail-oriented... Find out exactly what you would be working on or doing and make it seem as though you are fit for that job.
