Welding Experience

As one of the welding recruiting firms in the Midwest, we work with manufacturers across the country who produce stamping and welding assemblies for the automotive, boiler, aerospace, building and construction industries.

We recruit process/welding engineers, line supervisors, robotic welding engineers and welding technicians.

We’ll find the top candidates with the necessary skills to meet your production needs.  

The Right Candidates

As we talk with candidates, we ask about their experiences in a manufacturing setting. Are they able to weld in all positions or confined spaces? Have they used MIG, Arc, gas or TIG welding? Are they comfortable with lasers, robotic welding and manual operations?

We discuss their knowledge of Six Sigma and Lean methodologies and their familiarity with AWS D1.1 and D1.2. We also determine if they have been responsible for fixtures, gages, tools and maintenance.

As welding recruiters, we recruit candidates with knowledge of GMAW, RSW and Stick. We ask if they’ve set up and programmed robotic welders. Are they experienced in manufacturing assembly and PLC programming?

We ask direct questions and we listen for detailed responses. Our own manufacturing experience plays a role in the evaluation process, which helps to single out the top producers. Once we have a pool of qualified candidates, we’ll start sending you resumes to review. We’ll look for feedback on your assessment of them. If it isn’t what you are looking for, feedback is critical so we can change our vetting process.

We’ll do the recruiting for you because we’re welding headhunters. Delegate those time-consuming responsibilities to us so you’ll more time to expand your operations.
