What Keeps ARI on Track?

March 1, 2006 - Posted at 1:15 p.m.  CST

Paragould, AR -- What keeps American Railcar Industry on the right track? Paragould Plant Manager, Al Arthur says their employees work and give their all everyday.

"Basically we are what we are because of our work ethic and the community. We rely on their support. That's what makes us ARI."

Building a railcar takes training and patience. Al said they can produce anywhere from 1 to 30 railcars a day, just depending on the size of the car. Each worker goes through a 40-hour training program where they learn to weld, read blue prints, and read tape measures. Right now ARI is looking for welders, and maybe you've got what they're looking for.

"We really want someone who is willing to go that extra step. We have guys get here early in the morning before shift starts so they can get things ready for the day. That's the kind of people we want; someone with a good work ethic."

If you are interested in joining the team at ARI, you can apply at your local unemployment office, and there is no experience needed.
