    I have been working at General Dynamics NASSCO full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    Low salary during training but gets better after.

    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
