Electrician Helper Reviews

What is it like working as an Electrician Helper?

Electrician Helper in Anderson:
"Working as an Industrial Electrician's Helper."
Pros: There is a sense of accomplishment when your skills are utilized to complete a task.
Cons: When technicians or engineers talk down to you like your just some laborer. We do the things that they don't want to. The actual work that goes into making their jobs easier and there is lots of time a lack of recognition for that.
