Re: overseas contract companies

Re: overseas contract companies

Dyncorp
L3
General Dynamics
Lockheed Martin
etc.

Hope you've got loads of experience....a first year welder isn't going to be getting a $100k/year contract.

Re: overseas contract companies

KBR....Most of those listed above wouldn't need welders...L3 is now GLS contract too...KBR is downsizing over here in Iraq though...Although they are a HUGE corporation and are all over the world....

It was a place to start searching but yes, LM/GD is always looking for welders. I just did a search on GD's website, 20+ welder positions across the US.

Sale of KBR

On April 15, 2006, Halliburton filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to sell up to 20 percent of its KBR stock on the NYSE under the ticker symbol "KBR", as part of an eventual plan for KBR to be a separate company from Halliburton.[47]

In November 2006, Halliburton began selling its stake in KBR, its major subsidiary, and by February 2007 had completely sold off the subsidiary. In June 2007, several days after Stewart Bowen, the Special Inspector General, released a new report, the Army announced that KBR would share another $150 billion contract with two other contractors, Fluor and Dyncorp, over the next ten years.[48]
