Shafter, California PeopleReady
Are you looking for a great fit in a full-time construction job? Do you have a deep understanding of framing, building, and finishing? We are hiring for full-time and part-time Drywall Installers, or Drywallers, to join with one of our skilled labor clients. As a Drywall Installer, you work on home construction and restoration projects. You'll measure the rooms in which the building material is to be installed, cut it to fit these rooms, and attach the drywall to wall studs. Some Drywall Installer learn informally through on-the-job training, while others enter formal apprenticeships that might take three or four years to complete. Although no formal education is required for this occupation, a knowledge of basic math is essential.
There are two basic steps to installing drywall: First, drywall workers fasten the drywall against the inside framework of the building. Second, they finish and smooth the joints. Some drywall workers specialize in cutting and installing the panels, while others specialize in finishing the joints. However, many workers do both types of work. Does this sound like the right fit for you? If so, then we would love to have you apply today.

Reading design plans in order to provide minimal wallboard to avoid unnecessary waste of materials
Measuring and marking cutting lines on framing, drywall, and trim using tape measure, straightedge, or square, and marking devices
