    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    You will be called for an interview with eight older guys sitting along table with you at the end if it (intimidation lol). You will recieve a test score for this process later via postal mail afterwards. I received a 94/score but called back after being laid off for another round of being a Groundsman. Just be honest and you'll be fine.

    Interview Questions

    • Life experience that would help you in the field of line work, indirect questions gauging your attitude and work ethics. Are you paying your union dues lol.   1 Answer

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
