The RoleOpportunity Overview
Reporting to the Maintenance Supervisor, as a Welder, you will primarily work within the refinery to support operations and keep the facility running at peak performance. We have 40 miles of refined product pipeline serving the refinery which produces high-quality gasoline, distillates, fuel oil diesel, jet fuel and other products. All of your work will be generated via a work order system. Typically, you will complete two to three work orders each shift.
You will work the day shift to complete duties in conjunction with another Welder.

While 95% of the time you will focus on the maintenance needs within the refinery, on occasion, you will also support basic pipeline maintenance, such as changing filters on the line.
