I have been working at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers full-time (More than 5 years)
My card actually says JourneyWoman! They paid everything for my college degree. I couldn’t get hired nonunion, they rarely hire women. Women receive the same pay as men for same job titles. They have a separate women’s club. I haven’t joined but I went to their meeting. I thought it would be like a man bashing meeting, but they played a game about famous women. I won a candle! And they had a lot of food and everybody was so nice to me.
There are A LOT of women but not women foreman.
Advice to Management
I don’t know the real numbers, but it seems like women and the blacks get laid off first.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Paramus, NJ) in December 2017.
Waited a few months after initial application for aptitude test, then a couple more months before the interview. Interview was 10 minutes. Didn't get much feedback. I'll get a letter in 2-3 weeks with decision.
