Mission: The shipyard of choice for securing our nation and fueling our economy.
I have been working at General Dynamics NASSCO full-time (More than 10 years)
They train you for 8 weeks and certify you as a welder or shipfitter or whatever student position you apply for that requires certification and its free!
Low salary during training but gets better after.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at General Dynamics NASSCO (San Diego, CA) in November 2010.
The hiring process is just like any other position. They just want to make sure that you can handle work load, stress, how you interact with others and they want to know your mental ability. Whether you can think logically
At the time i was not able to negotiate. I counter offered but was denied.
Before steel floats through the ocean, it soars in the sky above our shipyard. Shipbuilding is truly awe-inspiring work. Watch this impressive crane lift: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMCyo
It's an honor to build the first six vessels in the new John Lewis class (T-AO 205) of ships -- a new fleet of replenishment oilers to support U.S. Navy ships at sea and aircraft assigned to aircraft carriers.
