union pay seems the way to get the big $... except at pro stainless in keyser wv,
i've been there close 30 years mostly tig welding but some mig and stick too.I just got raised to a whopping $14.00 hour, this is a union shop that does custom fab stainless kitchens for some big name buyers all up and down the east coast. they have health insurance but no other benefits. They rip off the customers with lighter guage metal and sell silver spray bombed black iron frames as stainless. we just got cameras pointed at every welder to make sure they get their monies worth from us. local 100 has not stood behind us in anything we've fought for.
If you want a job with a company thay grosses close 10 million a year,call pro stainless

I am looking for Combo Pipe Welders.This job is in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The job is permanent at a large fabrication company. All new fabrication welding pipe from 2" to 42" diameter.

You have to be able to TIG and stick (7018 Low Hydrogen) pipe. Even though this is new fab, you will be welding in a pipe rack to make modules being shipped overseas. They will X-Ray your first four welds and if you bust any of these they will probably dismiss you. After you pass these they would random X-Ray your welds.

The test is on 2" double extra heavy wall pipe (carbon) in the 6G position. TIG the first two passes and 7018 all the way out. Cut and bend straps.

The pay is $26 per hour working 56 hours a week and time-and-a-half after 40 hours.

We have housing to offer you in order to get you started down here.

If interested, email me at ksmith@workforceconsultinggrp.com

I agree that getting a welding job in the lima, ohio region is difficult! This I feel is due to the fact this areas manufacturing is going to other countries and the area has been flooded with welders from all the local vocational schools for years. This has allowed employers to take advantage of the workers by lowering wages and benefits as the average hourly rate is 12 dollars an hour (pithetic). As for getting in the union good luck! People are begging for jobs such as those,it's not what you know but WHO.

J. in Coronado, California said: Pipe, by far. If you can weld pipe, you will be in demand because it ecompasses a) overhead welding (on the bottom of the pipe), b) vertical welding (on the sides of the pipe), and c) flat surface welding (on the top of the pipe. If you can weld pipe, you can do all the rest too.

There are two kinds of pipe welding or I should say 'directions'. First is Uphill welding which means you start on the bottom of the pipe near 6 O'clock then weld uphill until you reach 12:00 O'clock. Uphill is nearly always done with low-hydrogen welding rod or nowdays, sometimes with wire like fluxcore.

Downhill welding is the reverse of uphill and is what is normally done on cross-country pipelines. You mentioned your wife and kids. If I were you, even though the money is good, I would think twice about trying to become a downhill pipeline welder, which is a highly paid profession of highly skilled welders, but it is tough on the family.

A good alternative would be to go in and talk with the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local Union office in your area and see if they will allow you to enter their apprentice program where you could not only earn a living but also get your hands dirty with the work and observe it up close and personal and get training at the same time. You would not only earn good money, but discover a brotherhood of other guys (and a few gals) you will develope friendships with who can also keep you in the know regarding additional work. The Local will teach you, train you and make you a more valuable worker with marketable skills. The U/A motto is 'Live better, work Union'.

I know St. Louis has a big Local and so does K.C. Also, there is a big job in Marshalltown Ia that will last 4-5 year

I see that you say there is a permanent job in iowa for welders and was wanting to make sure if so can I have all the info on it wanting to settle down with family near home thanks

Experience of basic shipyard marine repair background, structural/pipewelding experience, knowledge of blueprints, extensive use of hand and power tools, must be able to pass a weld test.These skills are more helpful in getting high salaries.

Christopher in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma said: Hey guys and gals. Im going to tulsa welding school at beginning of 2010, taking a year to just relax from bodybuilding, and starting a real career in welding. Ill be 20 and I am trying to get EVERY BIT of information on welding fields to get into. My uncle went to tulsa welding school and sence he was 20 ( hes 41 now ) he has NEVER been out of the job, hes an arc-base welder for valmont and has ALWAYS supported his family and has one HELL of a home! My grandpas neighbor and his son both are inspectors and from what I heard rake in upto 750 a day! I have yet to know what my uncle makes, but I am wanting to know the best fields to get into right after welding school. Im going for my associates as well while Im there. When I am done with my 14 months there Ill be 22 I want to be able to work hard, and provide very well for my future with fiance, and i have always had a passion to get into welding, its just a art only real men and women can do in my opinion, and of course the money is good for the labor.

I also want to know if I should go union? Why its good and why its bad? Of course Im fine starting out with 17.50 or so for pay, but damn well expect with experience and good skills to make more then that. email me at theclassicpooh@gmail.com for any and all info you can give me to learn on before welding school, and to look into after welding school. Thanks

Hey Chris,
I am going to Tulsa Welding School and Im half way through it. What I would suggest is to know your blue print symbols, basic geometry, be able to take advise from some good and some not so good instructors.
Im not saying not to go cause its a goodthing to get into but when you get into the 8th month, the starting of the inspectors course you have to know a lot of different kind of math.
I have a friend taking that course and he says the math is tough.
but the course that i am taking is not that hard at all.
hope this helps.
