    in factory / at factory

    Hi friends,

    I checked the usage of word "factories" in dictionaries.
    I saw a lot of "in factories" but I didn't see "at factories"
    Are both correct? I think one is British and another is American, yes?
    Have you ever heard "at factories"?

    I would be happy if you clarify it to me.

    Many thanks.

    Yes "at factories" is used, but "in factories" is far more common.
