Outlook for Ironworkers

Bureau of Labor Statistics states that journeymen earn a median pay of $50,830 per year plus overtime and benefits. The occupation is growing faster than average.

Role of Reinforcing Ironworkers

Reinforcing ironworkers build structures and bridges by constructing a skeleton of rebar that will later be incased in concrete. The occupation includes rigging, hoisting and material in addition to bending, welding and tying rebar. This physically demanding occupation is also one of the fastest growing trades in construction.  

Work Environment

As one may expect, construction is performed in physically demanding and dangerous conditions. These include, but are not limited to; extreme heights, confined spaces, cold winters and hot summers. As a result, ironworkers must be willing to work in austere (strict) safety conditions.

Candidate Requirements

While no ironworker experience is needed candidates are required to have the following;

  • Ability to work in and promote a drug free environment
  • Able to carry 50/60lbs of equipment and lift 100lbs
  • Willingness to work at extreme heights (60 to 300+ feet) and in confined spaces
  • Be reliable and practice good attendance
  • Possess and maintain a valid driver’s license
  • Provide references attesting to a good work history
  • Have completed high school or earned an equivalent
  • Preference is provided to applicants who have served in the Armed Forces
