Begin as an apprentice. And grow from there.
Here’s Your Career Trajectory.
The accredited Shelby Erectors Apprenticeship Program takes two years to complete. You’re paid during this on-the-job training, and your pay increases every 6 months.
Typically, our apprentices become journeymen. From there, we position you for success as a foreman and possibly as a supervisor if that’s your goal. These represent our “field path.” Outside the field, there are positions in estimating, project management, safety, compliance, etc.
Basically, from the time you arrive, you’re going places. Strong, resilient individuals excel with us.
It’s a Profitable Path.
It’s also a dirty, grit-and-grime kind of road. We put our heads together and then get down to work. We set out every day with focus and stamina.
Starting wages in the apprenticeship program are $15/hr. And every 6 months, you’re seeing an increase. Your time, commitment, and growing skill set are valuable to us. Your pay will reflect that appreciation and value.
Talented and experienced foremen and supers push six figures annually. It’s something to consider. And certainly, something to envision and work toward in your career.
If you’re ready for an honest day’s work, you’ve met your match. We give our projects everything we’ve got, seek to improve, and make a real difference out in the world. We build the infrastructure that connects communities. We also believe you should be paid well. And as your responsibility and skills grow, so will your paychecks.
All this – and you don’t even need a specialized degree, certifications, or any kind of experience to begin. You just need the desire to show up and train hard. That’s it.
Work for an Industry Leader.
At Shelby Erectors, we’re a family-owned business. We’re committed to building teams that stand as some of the best in the industry. Every year, we’re recognized more and more for our contributions in ironworking and the way we manage projects and deliver.
You won’t be a number here. You’ll be a name. You’ll work with people who care about you, your family, and your wellbeing. We take our jobs seriously here. We approach them with pride. And you will, too.
Give a Damn with Us.
Join us. We strive daily to be better as a company. You’ll be challenged here as an apprentice and beyond. You’ll develop an undeniable strong bond within your crew. You’ll get up each morning with purpose. You’ll be on a promising, respectable career path from the start.
We give a damn. We give a damn about the people who make the company what it is. We say, be the best you can be. Be the best you can be for each other. And always look for ways to be even better. Not because you must be. But because you have the ability to improve, learn, and grow all your life.
The culture is different here. That difference makes us unique. It makes Shelby Erectors a great fit for the right people.
We hope you’re a great fit. We hope you’ll at least make the decision to apply right now.
