People of Kice: Reed Pierce




How did you learn about Kice?

I learned about the company thru Bob Kice.

How was the Weld Assistant program at Kice beneficial to you?

Going through the Weld Assistant program right out of high school was the best thing that I could have done when I started at Kice because I started with no welding experience. I now have a skilled trade that I did not have to go to school for and have no school loans.  Also, with the help from my boss, I took a welder certification test and passed, so I am an American Welding Society Certified Welder.


Work Environment

What would be your advice for someone thinking of a career in welding?

If you want to be a welder, just make sure that you stick with it and never quit on yourself.

The people and how nice and neat everything is.
