New Sign-On Bonuses for Experienced Welders
Published November 9, 2021
Newport News Shipbuilding is offering $2,500-$5,000 sign-on bonuses for experienced welders. Welders with one to five years of experience can earn a $2,500 sign-on bonus. Welders with six or more years of experience can earn a $5,000 sign-on bonus. In addition, NNS will continue to offer $500 sign-on bonuses to entry-level and welder trainees where no experience is required. Job seekers who apply through until Dec. 31 are eligible for the sign-on bonuses. The sign-on bonuses are for external new hires. Current NNS employees are ineligible.
“The company has a critical need to hire hundreds of welders now and all next year,” said Kelly Fischer, Talent Acquisition manager. “These sign-on bonuses make NNS more competitive and may encourage more experienced welders to relocate to our area.”
Additionally, NNS is now offering $1,000 cash bonus awards to current NNS employees who refer trades candidates, including welders, who are hired. Visit the REFER program resource page at huntingtoningalls.com/hii-careers/refer-a-friend for more information.
