Tenaris is a leading supplier of tubes and related services for the world’s energy industry and other industrial applications. The company’s customers include most of the world’s leading oil and gas companies as well as engineering companies engaged in constructing oil and gas gathering, transportation, and processing facilities.
Jimmie Hancock is an employee relations regional manager for Tenaris. He was in the Army Reserve from 1986 to 1992, serving as a specialist in supply and personnel. He has 17 years experience in Human Resources. He has worked in a variety of positions in different industries, including healthcare, security, food and beverage, and the oil and gas industry. He currently is responsible for two Tenaris facilities.
Hancock said one of the company’s biggest challenges is recruiting experienced maintenance personnel. Veterans are often good fits for these positions, largely because of their discipline, according to Hancock.
He also believes that veterans will enjoy working for the company. “I believe we offer a good atmosphere to further your career, because of our educational opportunities and the opportunity for continued travel,” he said. “Tenaris is a global company where the only limit is the limit you place on yourself.”
