Local Union # 3 The best, and safest union, to work for.
A- Journeyman Electrician/Foreman Local Union (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – May 3, 2016
Just awesome. I worked there 37 years. I loved my job, and joining Local Union # 3 in 1974, was the best thing, that I ever did. They teach you how to become the best electrician, being productive, while still working safe. I can't say enough good about Local Union # 3. They always provided a great income, and great benefits for my family and myself. If I didn't get hurt in 2009, I would still be there. I truly miss working for them and my fellow brothers, and sisters.
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – April 21, 2016
I enjoyed everything about the electrical trade, from the hard stuff like moving huge reels of wire, to the easy stuff like cleaning up at the end of the day. The people you work with are all there to achieve the same goal: making it to the deadline safely and on time.
Great Place to Begin an Electrical Industry Career
Journeyman Electrician, Inside Wireman (Current Employee) – Elmira, NY – April 14, 2016
IBEW Local 139 was an excellent place to begin an electrical career and to learn the basic foundation of the field of electricity. Not only did the Business Manager and staff work hard to keep apprentices employed in local firms for valuable real world experience, the Hall also insured that the rigorous educational requirements of electrical theory, practice and safety were taught well and driven home seriously.
Working for the IBEW is a fantastic career. The union makes a point to see that their workers are cared for. They share fantastic benefits for you and your family.
Daily activities in the electrical field can include anything from moving around material and organization to the assembly of switchgear. There can be some hazards on the job but the employers are there to make the work environment as safe as possible for its employees. At time there can be struggles working with heavy materials and being around live electrical equipment, which is all the more reason to learn and practice all of your safety standards.

IBEW it's a union of electricians in the USA, to me its the best way if you want to start a career as electrician.i get more responsibility working here, i developed electrician skills, i worked with amazing co-workers. the hardest part of the job was the weather in summer, and the most enjoyable part was, meet good people.
Its a good company to work for and good people to work with.
Inside Wireman/ Journeyman (Current Employee) – Martinez, CA – March 15, 2016
I like the current company I work for and most of the people I work with. I feel there is a lack of good management and specific job information.The hardest part of my job is trying to get specific details and materials to complete tasks at hand.
The pay is good and I like the people I work with. I like the hours.
Assistant Administrator (Current Employee) – South Burlington, VT – March 15, 2016
Hours were 8 am to 5 pm with a 1/2 hour paid lunch. I actually have health and welfare benefit experience, I just had to learn the new work environment. Management is very supportive of work/home. I loved the work place. I was busy all day. Management and my co-workers were the most enjoyable part of my job. The hardest part of my job was remembering the differences between utility and construction participant benefits.
Electrician (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 7, 2016
I enjoy working for this company but the layoff times are now way too long for this job to help me support myself or my family. I went through their apprenticeship and learned a lot about the electrical industry. The other journeyman I worked with were great, I just feel we have more members than required and why many are laid off for extended periods of time.
