District 2 — Job Calls at the Refineries, School Projects and Keeping Busy in Long Beach
The refineries continue to put out job calls in District 2. Marathon has a large turnaround coming up at the end of March and the beginning of April that should last roughly 50 days, working multiple shifts and overtime. There will be a great need for Instrument Techs from multiple contractors. Torrance refinery just completed one of their turnarounds and should have more work coming at the end of the year, and Phillips 66 has been putting out a few job calls as well.
There are multiple school projects going on in the Long Beach area, such as the Lakewood High School job CSI is doing. Reyes & Sons has projects at Long Beach City College Carson Campus and Carver Elementary School, along with a few other school projects.
Mass Electric should be gearing up a little in March for the AES project in Long Beach. They will be looking to hire for about a three-month span for cable pulling.
The Long Beach Airport has a large-scale project that is still just in the beginning stages.
