When working
Groundsmen (Former Employee), OttawaFebruary 19, 2013
When working, I enjoy frontline work and working with my clients. I believe an effective environment is with staff who maintain positivity at work and help each other when needed. The hardest part when working is when being faced with difficult situations that are not easily fixed.

Intern (Former Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 21, 2015
The organization is very regimented and a little stuffy, but they have great benefits and pay. The people are generally nice, the management is so-so. They work hard and do good work for their members. Most of the work is not too complicated and once you get in, you have great job security.

Constantly changing enviroment
1st year Apprentice (Former Employee), Atlanta, GADecember 11, 2014
Pros: constant change
Cons: short lunches, working outside during the winter.
Typical day included being at work at 7am. Sitting through a Job Safety Analysis then starting on the daily project by 730am. Performing different jobs throughout the day getting off by 6pm everyday. I learned how to pull cable, put cable tray up, high voltage splicing, bend conduit, set up a circuit board. The hardest part of my job was working in the cold during the winter time. The most enjoyable portion was a constant change in job pattern.

Productive and Exciting
Electrician's Helper (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 19, 2014
Pros: free lunch, tips, experience in the field
Cons: long distance and early start time.
A typical day at work was waking up early to prepare myself before the day began. I would make a list of things that needed to be ordered and then get assined to a co-worker for the morning. I have worked on putting up temporary lights and running wires amongst other things. Through my whole experience, I never had a problem with management they were efficient. When I started this job I learned how to interact with my co-workers and help them simaltaniously if need be. However I would have to say this was also the hardest part of the job on somedays, because I would be working with three to six people at a time. Either running errands or helping move material nothing was ever easy when you have multiple people working and needing asssistance. When I think about this job I can't say I have a "most enjoyable part of my job." Everything was different, exciting, new and I enjoyed all of it. This job helped me built on myself. As I try to move on to something closer in my field of study, I hope to gain more knowledge and experience.

Journeyman Electrician (Current Employee), Washington, DCAugust 12, 2014
A typical day at work varies for any journeyman electrician. You can start the day installing conduit and finish the day terminating panels. My co-workers are from many different backgrounds and life styles. The hardest part of my job would have to be the ever changing atmosphere. The most enjoyable part of my job is the challenge of mental and physical strength.

Good work experience when it comes around
Electrical Apprentice (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 5, 2014
Worked there as an apprentice for about 3 years. Jobs can come and go. The work experience quality was good and classroom training was provided/mandatory. However, the unstable workflow, "I'm only out for #1" guys who stabbed me in the back as an apprentice, and the constant political propaganda was not for me.

Electrician (Former Employee), five boroughsMarch 28, 2014
Pros: short hours, excellent pay
Cons: sometimes you get stuck with a boss/foreman that doesnt know anything other than how to yell.
everyday is a little something new. Running wires, bending conduit, laying out/blueprint reading, hanging fixtures, switches/receptacles. most jobs only lasted about 3-4 months. once the job is over I was either laid off until my next turn is up for work or was transferred to a new location. most co-workers on the job are used to the old ways of local 3 in which it is a mans world, but with thick skin and knowledge of the trade ive learned to prove the "old thinkers" wrong.
