WesTool looks forward to hiring those who complete the program as journeypersons with all the benefits and opportunities the title entails.

An Opportunity to Succeed

Jason Hammons, 39

“I’m always doing something different.”

Jason Hammons was 20 when he entered the apprenticeship program. His father was a machinist, so Jason knew what he wanted to do. He mastered handwork and shearing/spotting during the apprenticeship and was hired at WesTool right away. He’s still there today – 18 years later – because he enjoys the variety, from working on extremely large molds to welding, operating CMMs, fabricating and more. And what he’s learned on the job goes home with him and helps him restore minibikes, work on vehicles and remodel his home.
