Q: What is it like working as an Electrician - Certified?

Electrician - Certified in Boise:
"Rewarding."

Cons: the way incentive raises are given the early hours

Electrician - Certified in Killeen:
"Construction Career Advice."
My advice is to obtain a license/ journeyman, or master license. Find a good Company before hiring on, to make sure you love the work, the company, and the people, also a Company that won't lay you off after every job or every other job completion. Also make sure the Company you pick doesn't have the buddy- buddy system going, because you will never be promoted in the Company and you'll do most of all the work on the job-site and never be recognized for it. Being an Electrician is great and fun work, with the right Company, people, and atmosphere. With that said... I wanna say welcome to the Electrical field and the great knowledge you'll receive through out the years. Just do you research first on your employer of choice and you'll do great. Good Luck and welcome to the show.
