I could wind up with a large company like Progress rails. This job would include maintaining rail cars to very strict standards. Passing a 3/8 inch structural plate test, on many different angles, is required for employment.
There are smaller countries all over the US that are always looking for help, like Allison Welding in Amarillo. These companies would provide great experience, they work in a very large and small variety of projects. Tearing down old vehicles, building fences, improving or repairing homes, even taking overflow work from larger companies like Progress Rails.
