Job Description

Are you looking for immediate work and that makes a positive impact for your country? Are you the type of person who loves diversity in your work day? We are now hiring for Skilled ShipyardLaborers with a real passion for working with their hands to work at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. Laborers can be found on almost all sites, performing a wide range of tasks from very easy to hazardous. Many of the jobs they perform are physically strenuous and may require special training or experience. Other jobs require little skill and can be learned quickly.

The job duties of a Marine Laborer vary, sometimes even day-to-day at the same site. They may include cleaning and preparing a jobsite, loading and delivering materials; using different tools and machines, such as blowtorches; driving forklifts; reading levels; operating lifts; and manning power drills, grinders, saws, pressure washers, and water spraying equipment. Laborers set up and take down ladders, scaffolding, and other temporary structures. They help other trades as well.

Laborers and helpers work in all trades at the shipyards, and the demand for these workers should mirror the level of overall activity. We would love to add more Skilled Laborers like you.
