    in einer Fabrik

    I would say "to work in a factory". Is "to work at a factory" okay, too ( for "in einer Fabrik")?

    Is "to work at a factory" okay?

    "He works at a factory" isn't normal.

    But you can say "He works at the factory", e.g.:
    He works at the bottle factory.
    He works at the Ford plant.
    He works at the factory.

    I would usually say "in," but I might say "at" if I were thinking of a specific location:

    1. He works in a factory.
    2. How works at a factory near my house.

    Captain Flint's examples might also be based on this same idea, insofar as "the" suggests a specific factory in a specific location.

    #3 Indeed they are. :-)

    @3: The second example should read:
    2. He works at a factory near my house.
