I have been working at Kinkisharyo International full-time (More than 5 years)
I was able to earn international experience in the welding trade while working in Osaka Japan. Additionally, I was trained and achieved certifications for non destructive testing PT II, MT II, UT II & AWS CAWI.
Too long of a gap between LA Metro contracts (5 years).
Advice to Management
With the next contract we need to compensate the skilled trades accordingly. We have had trouble retaining Welders and skilled painters because these are skilled trades that universally transferable.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kinkisharyo International (El Segundo, CA).
The interview process was painless. The HR department is efficient, polite and very knowledgeable. Both of my interviews started on time, everyone asked pertinent questions and requests for updates on the hiring process were answered promptly and politely.
