Daily Duties at Bennett Steel Pipe And Supplies:
I read structural blueprints to do the layout and fit up of beams, plates (bent and flat), tubes, angle, and bars (flat and round). When I finished the layout and fit up, I would then weld the material using mainly Flux Core, unless the job called for MIG. I cleaned and repaired my own welds and mistakes on fit up and occasionally I was needed to do the same on other people's. I also welded for the fitters who did the fit up on trusetts, frames, and skids. I would cut and grind parts/material when needed. I also operated the overhead cranes, forklifts, and skytraks to move material. I would help assemble the decks for towers to ensure they were done right and to check for any repairs or modifications that were needed to be done before they were shipped to the job site.
What they like about Bennett Steel Pipe And Supplies:
You give high priority to hiring firms with prestige. Market reputation and prestige of a firm may be determined through on-line research, and conversations with individuals working in your target industry. Note that firms "in the public eye" receive a great deal more critical publicity and attention than those operating with more anonymity. So as you assess your employment opportunities, be sure to seek out the positive aspects of the firm's reputation in addition to noting negative publicity the company may have received.
