Job Description

Spherion Staffing is looking for an experienced MIG Welder to work with a reputable steel company in the Macon area. MIG welders, or metal inert gas welders, use specialized gas metal arc welding techniques and equipment to join pieces of metal together. MIG welders use an electric arc welder with the inert gas argon to securely and permanently join metal, preventing impurities from compromising the weld.

The primary responsibility of a MIG welder is to join multiple pieces of metal together using an electric arc. The MIG welder uses feeder wire, electric current, and an inert gas (typically a combination of argon and carbon dioxide) to fuse two or more pieces of metal together and keep contaminants from entering the weld and weakening the bond. MIG welders measure and cut a variety of work pieces using blueprints or schematics. This requires some familiarity with technical documents and specification sheets, along with some level of expertise with using metal-cutting tools, such as plasma torches, grinders, and filers. This also requires a high level of precision to make the correct cuts.
