What type of welder are you? I recently heard of a position for an experienced pipe welder.

I know turner isnt hiring right now cause my son went to twc yesterday to get an application and they told him they wernt even accepting applications now because there were no positions open at turner. But then I talked to some of the guys who work at Turner and they said they have been hiring. But all applications have to be turned in thru Texas Workforce. There was an ad in the Paris news for a mig welder/fabricator with experience. You might check that out. Good luck.

PJ Trailers in Tigertown has been advertising that they are hiring. You might try there. It may not be the highest paying job but could hold you over until something better comes along.

I'm a certified pipe welder through the state of oklahoma. I'm looking for a welding job also . I've done stick welding on pipe, fluxcore, and short arc. I've done 100% welds on pressure vessels and train cars. If anyone know of anywhere hiring please let me know.

3G test is your basic test if you were 6G or 6GR AWS certified more fires will open. I'd check P&J trailers or the fence company out on 82 west. It's a start and a place to maybe get a higher cert

Your certs don't mean diddly to Turner. If you try to hire on as a welder, then you had better be a former employee. They're not going to hire any unproven welder, no matter what it says on the paper in your pocket. Otherwise, hire on as a tacker, but only if you can pass the tacker test (most "certified" welders can't). It's best to put your pride aside, and just hire on as a helper, and then put your time in at Turner's own weld school. Everybody else worked they're way up like that, you're not special because you wasted $20k on a worthless votech program.

Don't waste your time with Bodyguard unless you want to work for peanuts in a very dysfunctional workplace. They say they are going places but the only place they will be going to is Bankruptcy. The way they run their company is a joke. Don't waste your time applying at PJ's if you are an English speaking US citizen. Their HR woman has been quoted telling multiple applicants that they only want Mexicans in particular shops. Load Trail isn't much better. A lot of places have ads in the paper or signs out front that say they are looking for a welder and when you go in to apply they say they aren't hiring. Other little companies like Metro Gate or Agpro just don't pay welders what they would be making in a decent town- IF they are even hiring at all. Turner is hit and miss on hiring. Good luck finding a welding job in this town that will pay you more than you would make at McDonalds... Seriously, it is pathetic.

Thank God you have to prove yourself! Turner has guidelines to go by...any welding job you do you will have to test for. Harrison Walker has welders test all the time before they can work for them.
