Electrician Trainee (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 2, 2015
The experience was great, I was able to do some projects around our center. I worked on a fire alarm system for a gym, I ran CAT5e wire for computer lines. my instructor was great, she taught me a lot. My peers were great workers. The best part of the job was just having some work to do, the hands on experience is just great.
you work everyday just like you would any other job with about 20 other trainees and an instructor. While you are technically a government employee through the forest service and JCCCC, you don't really receive pay, its a stipend of $23.01 after taxes Biweekly. But the whole purpose of this company is to get you job experience so that you can begin working in the trade of your choice with experience already at an entry level position. Your living expenses are paid for and you get 3 meals a day free but you are required to live on campus. overall its a great program and you do get a large sum of money when you complete the program depending on your accomplishments while attending.
completly free job training, housing and meals
living in close quarters with other trainees for long periods of time, including sharing rooms with up to 6 people.
Hard working, Great with people,Fast and a Team Player.!!!
