    I have been working at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers part-time

    Pros

    Excellent training opportunities, the IBEW opens a door in the electrical field to allow workers to work on large scale high profile jobs. Very satisfying scope of work

    Cons

    The union is extremely political. It helps to know someone.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person with an application. I was called a week or so later and asked to come in and take an aptitude test. I also sat down with the director and discussed my interest in this type of work. There was room in teh apprenticeship program and I did well on my aptitude test so I got into the program.

    Interview Questions
    • Aptitude test (physical). They interview was more of an application and test process. Everyone takes the same aptitude test and if there are spots available in the apprenticeship, and you do well on teh aptitude test, you are in. Other that that, there was not much to it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is not a negotiation phase. You start at a base pay and your pay increases as you reach a certain number of hours in increments. Once you reach 8000 hours you can take your journeyman electrician test which is a state certification. The only way you make more is to work overtime which is good as you get time and a half before 7 and after 3:30 as well as double time on Sundays. There is potential to make good money if you work a lot of hours.
