MIG/TIG Welder (1st Shift)

Back to Careers


MIG and TIG welders use metal inert gas (MIG) or tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding to fuse metal parts together and operate tools such as arc welders, grinders, and buffing machines. They are also responsible for selecting and installing torch tips, filler rods, and flux according to the thickness of metal materials.

Job Title: MIG/TIG Welder
Dept/Group: Fabrication
Reports To: METAL Plant Supervisor
Job Category: Production
Position Type: Full-Time – 1st Shift


Welding: This is the core skill that all TIG welders must have. They should be knowledgeable about equipment, processes, materials, proper gases and should have a practical proficiency in welding thin 20 gauge stainless steel. At the point of interviewing a candidate, a 20 gauge weld test is required to pass for the position.

Reading Blueprints and Schematics:
Welders act with minimal supervision and rely on blueprints and schematics for instructions, so it’s imperative for them to interpret these accurately.

Math Skills:
Welders should be comfortable with numbers, especially as they calculate dimensions based on blueprints and take measurements of materials.

Hand-Eye Coordination:
Welding is a heavily physical process that requires stamina and perfect hand-eye coordination, since timing, amount of heat, and other variables must be exact in order to yield a usable product.

Troubleshooting: Welders have a keen eye for details when inspecting products. They spot errors quickly, then analyze them to deduce the root cause and formulate an efficient solution.


  • Ability to work with the following tools:
    • Measurement tools (such as tape measures, calipers, or clamps)
    • Metalworking tools (such as grinders, buffers, or sanders)
    • Technical documents (such as blueprints, bills of material, or technique sheets)
    • MIG/TIG welding equipment (such as tungsten electrodes, filler metal rods, or torch holders)
    • Metals (such as stainless steel, aluminum, or black iron)
  • Willingness to be trained on the operation of power and/or hand tools, bend, stoop, lift and move objects weighing up to 50 pounds; stand and walk continuously throughout an 8-hour shift; work in dusty and dirty conditions; clean and maintain a safe working environment.
