    I have been working at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great family health insurance and pension. A very good salary compared to non-union contractors in my area. Training is second to none. Lastly, the contractors I have worked for put safety first, it's a culture here

    Cons

    Not many, if you are a good electrician and come to work 8 for 8 every day, this is a great place to work

    Advice to Management

    To the contractors, Get the proper tools/materials on the job, these electricians know the best ways to put them in

    Apprentice Electrician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    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
