We are looking for experienced Welders to cut and join metals and other materials at our clients' facility. You will operate appropriate equipment to put attach structures or parts with a great deal of precision. Your role as a welder is important as it completes a critical step in the production process. The ideal candidate will have a steady hand and great attention to detail. Knowledge of different kinds of metal and their properties is essential.

Responsibilities

Work stations are preset with all necessary equipment and PPE. Our client uses clearly defined labels so that each employee in a production cell knows what’s expected of them, and where to find raw goods.  You’ll need to have steel toe shoes, and appropriate welding safety gear to take on this great temp to hire opportunity.

Our initial process will be a resume review, a phone interview, and an in-person interview with our client where your welding skills will be evaluated.
