^^ Youre a fucking moron.

Give some of the local colleges a call. When I was taking welding classes, the instructors were very straight forward to local business' as to who was capable of doing the tasks assigned, and who was not. Just a thought.

I'll give that a try. There is also some mechanical aptitude required. swapping motors, manifolds, exhaust systems, injectors, etc. It is a full emissions test technician position. Not just welding on exhausts.

We have contacted several of the local schools for co-op kids and can't even get people to call us back. WCC has a silly pool that you have to submit a need and it gets reviewed. Can't even get to a voc school teacher to explain what you want and ask if he has any standouts. In our PC world, that's not "fair".

It's insane.

I have a ton of positions that I can't fill. Entry level Engineers are finding work before they enter their final semester.

Technicians are all working and not interested in a short term assignment (I don't blame them at all)

And even better, there are unemployed morons out there who won't work a 3-4 month assignment because its not long term. They'd rather just collect unemployment, but they all make sure to tell me to call them if I get something long term.....right.

Is this a position requiring certificates/ degrees or just someone with half a brain that can make it to work on time? I have a buddy that does something similar and I always wonder if his job is super special or he was full of shit.

When I was teaching at WCC I tried to get a job placement program for the welding students. I was shot down at every turn by the administration. I agree, its very frustrating to have good hard working young people with an entry level skill set and I couldnt help them get a foot in the door someplace.

The client is asking for someone who has automotive testing background (so they understand how to follow proper repeatable test procedures and can fill out a test report), basic mechanical skills (The ability to swap fuel injectors, o2 sensors, exhaust systems, manifolds, use a hoist, etc) and MIG and TIG welding experience

Give M-Tec a call. They have a campus in gaylord, and rosscommon. I know most of the people there that I talked to were very flexible as to where they could work.I can get a couple phone numbers of the instructors if you would like.
