(And these are just the TOP 9 reasons…)
Ready to begin your new career in an active, fast-paced environment? Ready to push yourself, sweat, earn a great living, and love where you work? Here’s your chance. And here are the top 9 reasons our program is turning heads everywhere.
1. You’ll get paid, on-the-job training.
If you want to earn as you learn from the best journeymen in the industry, you’re in the right place. Starting wages are $15/hr, and the two-year program increases your pay every 6 months. Trust our experienced team to teach the valuable skills you need.
2. You’ll directly impact Florida’s communities.
With us, every day is about honest, hard work. When you go to sleep each night, you’ll know the feeling of a job well done. You’ll also understand you’re building the infrastructure it takes to safely and effectively connect vibrant, growing communities.
3. You can earn college credit & receive GI Bill® benefits.
We’re happy to share more about ways to complete up to half of your associate’s degree during your accredited Shelby Erectors Apprenticeship Program. Further, we’re approved for veterans training. Contact us today for more information.
4. You don’t need degrees, certifications, or experience.
Get started right out of high school or college. If you’re a military veteran or even looking to change careers, you can begin the apprenticeship without all the bells and whistles and fancy titles. Requirements are minimal. If you’re willing to show up and work hard, let’s be in touch.
5. You’ll be part of a family-owned business that cares.
As the Shelby Erectors family grows, we turn to the latest technology and do what we can to keep you healthy and safe on the job. You’ll be a name – not simply a number. We’re always improving, and we truly care for our employees. That’s reflected in pay, training, benefits, bonus opportunities, etc.
6. You’ll get to work with your hands.
Our employees come to know ironwork as an art. If completing hands-on tasks outdoors in the Florida sunshine and breeze sounds appealing to you, we get it. Our teams enjoy their work, and they take pride and ownership in community projects.
7. You’ll develop strong bonds with your team.
Your team will be more than simply the people you work with. We have a responsibility to each other and our families, and we never forget that. “The Shelby Erectors Difference” is a difference you’ll note and appreciate from day one.
8. You’ll meet challenges & purpose every day.
If you’re struggling to find a worthwhile career or to transition, find a new profession and passion here. We thrive outside, in the heat, and under pressure. It’s where we’re refined. Each day presents its own sets of challenges, and our teams collaborate to problem-solve. We give a damn and work hard – with each other and for each other.
9. You’ll have opportunities to grow in the company.
Invest in yourself today! From the two-year program, most apprentices become journeymen. Then some go on to work as foremen and supervisors, pushing six figures a year. We encourage you to set goals both professionally and personally. We’ll do everything we can to help you get there.
