I'm warning you now before you make a bad decision.
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) – Jasper, TN – August 21, 2018
If you are looking for a welding job in the Chattanooga area, there are plenty of places in the area to find a great job. I highly recommend staying away from Valmont. I didn't realize exactly how horrible the job was at the Jasper location until I found my new job. Valmont (Jasper) is poorly managed, has a horrible HR department, and hires supervisors who have no clue about the job. The pay is decent, but there are better paying welding jobs out there. Trust me, I found one. You can kiss your family time goodbye, as Valmont will run your life once you are hired in. I was told by numerous employees that there was no future at Valmont, get out as soon as you can because it's not a good place to work. I wish I would've gotten out sooner, because now I have an easier job, making a lot more money, with numerous weeks off for holidays, and exceptional benefits and rewards.
Bad management, Stressful, Underappreciated, No family time
