Welding department management, (top management, all the way down to foremen) need supervisor training.
Pros: great wages, good equipment, some decent co-workers.
Cons: lots of time grinding/redoing welds. clicky workplace. most of the work is done on your knees.
Very poor management and foremen in the welding/fabrication shop. Clicky workplace. Blindside dismissal. No second chance, no ability to defend yourself, your gone that is it, that is all!!!! Management takes the word of the foreman, doesn't bother to ask worker or co-workers for any details. NO job security. Always looking for welders....Doesn't make – more... sense when the wage is so good.
Hardest part of the job was the incredible amount of time spent on redoing work. Most of the welders are apprentices, including foreman. Lots of working on your knees. – less
