Pros: tangible result, healthcare, good wage
A typical day at work was 6-7 hours of pulling direct current power cable up through cable tray, down into a conduit and doing extended runs to certain locations. I learned how to properly read shcematics, easier ways to properly pull heavy wire into place, and how to deal with running a crew. Management was good, for the most part. My co-workers were very friendly, and all had the desire to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was working in tight spaces at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was hard work that made you feel you accomplished something tangible at the end of the day.
