    I was making more than that when I retired 8 years ago. You better review your $$$.
    $80,000.00 to $100,000.00 may get you help.

    BD1,

    We're looking for the top professional talent. As such, Im interested in better understanding your history so I can baseline our compensation package. We think we're offering a great opportunity compared to whats available in this region.

    What region was your job in?
    Was it a shop environment or field work?
    Was it salaried or hourly?
    Did you work only 40hrs per week making that or with overtime?
    Does that include bi-annual cash bonuses of 10% of your salary?
    Did you have unlimited PTO?
    Did it also include stock options in a newly emerging technology?

    Union pipe welders total package with bennys is about $120K without any OT. The average pipe welder probably makes $20-$30 K per year in OT. I can't see a pipe welder worth his salt taking a salary position that is under $100K on the check. Bonuses are just that and can not be relied on to make up for what would be OT if hourly.

    There is a reason why they want salary and it is not good for the person 9 times out of 10.

    rebound tech appears to being up front, on what there offering. nothing wrong w/ what there doing/offering. might be nice for a welder on the rebound of some sort. . id think theres qualified welders that are in a rut/rebound, and would be better getting outa the environment there in, and trying to start over. the name says it in plain english- "rebound technologies". take it or leave it, there not forcing anything on anyone.

    I'm not sure what's funny about that statement. As a matter of fact, it's very rude and unnecessary when the OP is being polite and civil.

    Precivilization, thank you, but it's ok. We now know that Weldingweb.com is definitely not for us! Honestly, this has been enlightening - in a really disappointing and unfortunate way. We know there are bright professionals (more like yourself) that take their trade and career seriously out there somewhere!

    Problem is Chance, the professionals that you're after aren't on this forum, they're on jobsites and in workshops making money.

    We're all either retired, work at a desk, or have too much time on our hands

    I don't understand what's wrong with a full time $80k job especially if you look after your employees and are in for the long haul. No idea about living expenses over there, but they'll be similar or lower than they are over here. I'd have thought it would equate to around a $40k+ salary here which is a good living.

    So the professionals on Welding web are not the kind you're looking for. Apparently the bright ones that make less and take their trade and career seriously are somewhere else?

    I wouldn't take it personal, everybody that posts a job on here gets the same treatment. I hope you find the people you need.

    Truthfully, if I lived out that way, I'd be first through the door applying.

    That's very good money where I live.

    And you need to understand that some of us have been breathing in the welding fumes for a bit too long, along with other things.

    There is some truth to this. They are members here, just not active at the moment. This forum has been slow the last year or two. Many of the members who were active are now seldom heard from. Probably because they are busy. Economy is doing better and jobs and work are plentiful. Just about every business has "help wanted" signs out, and all of the contractors I call either have to turn down the work, or tell me they are booked out several months.

    Re: Unique Opportunity for Skilled Pipe Welders

    No worries guys! I understand where some of the bravado comes from. I get it. My hopes were simply that you guys would appreciate that a company is truly trying to put welders first and not treat them like a number in a production environment...and ideally forward this on to anyone you think would be interested!

    To be clear, as a young startup company that is imminently releasing a new industrial technology, our vision is to give welders a great environment to work in and offer the exact same hours and benefits that any engineer would receive. I come from advanced manufacturing environments where shop labor is viewed as the most valuable asset in the company and treated as such. I dont think it should be any different in this industry. The key however, is demonstrated professionalism in every way - because its a two way street. We don't want to hire random welders and work them to death. We want to hire and grow leaders that can eventually take on more responsibilities as the company evolves.

    So far, I've received quite a few applications from folks out of state, but I'm not sure how much of it came from here. If you guys know of anyone interested that fits the bill, give us a shout!

    Chance
