PeopleReady is looking for Journeyman Welders to lend their highly sought-after skills to our client in Burlington. As a Journeyman Welder, you will be using hand-welding, flame-cutting, hand-soldering, or brazing equipment to weld or join metal components. You’ll pick the materials to join or cut and arrange them in an appropriate configuration before following a specific design or blueprint to build the desired product. Sometimes a welder has to perform specific melting methods on materials like lead bars to complete a project. Welders are also in charge of making structural repairs and ensuring the integrity of the welding equipment. They also smooth and polish the metal surfaces once welded together. As this position annually generates more demand than supply, we can say without a hitch that we need your talents. Are you ready to lend them to us?
