“Getting everything out the door is important and you can’t do that without a driver,” said Jason Janis of Youngstown Pipe & Steel.

The loads are prepared for the drivers, who can only carry out security checks before departure. YPS looks for drivers with a Class A CDL license and non-CDL drivers.

“Basically, you are at home every day. It’s essentially regional what we have, ”said Janis.

YPS connects customers with pipe, pipe, structural steel and plate burnouts.

The company also needs back office staff who can get leads from the field or a list of potential customers.

“That doesn’t belong to our customer base, but is either some kind of fab shop or bridge builder or something that they can reach and contact,” said Kevin Welsh of Youngstown Pipe & Steel.

The person would answer the phone or email and address the customers themselves. The main qualification is the ability to connect with people, talk to them and simply get involved.

“Our insider team is one of our most important parts of the business just to get in touch with the customer, build that relationship, and bring the business to Youngstown Pipe,” said Welsh.

Both positions receive some hiring benefits, others after six months, and even more so after a year.

YPS also needs grinding machines, material handlers and fitters.

You can apply in person, by phone at 330-259-8655 or by email at [email protected] YPS is located at 4111 Simon Rd., Youngstown, OH 44512.
