Job Opening For Heat Exchanger Fitter

I got a wild hair and decided to do a google search heat exchanger fitters. I was wondering what kind of job openings were out there, benefits and what the salary was.

One of the first results is a good example of why I left the welding field. The job opening was through a temporary agency, which was advertised as a temp to permanent position.

Why do companies use a temp agency? Most of the times its because the company has problems retaining employees. To cut down on the drug test and paper work, the company goes through a temp agency. The temp agency does the interviewing, drug test, screening, then sends the person to the welding shop.

No salary and no benefits were listed in the job opening.

Why should people stay in a field where the companies have problems retaining employees, and employees are not offered benefits?

If this was a good job, people would be lining up at the door.

Fab shops offer terrible benefits, lousy pay, and then they complain when they can not find skilled workers.

Why are kids going to college and leaving the manual labor jobs behind? Because kids can make 2 and 3 times working in computer then they can make welding.

Back in the late 1980s and into the 1990s weldshop foremans were worried about the number of young people going into welding. Instead of offering improved benefits, just hire employees through a temp agency.

Why did I leave the welding field? Because the pay, benefits and working conditions suck.
