Good benefits, very low pay.
Electric Motor Technician (Current Employee) – Johnstown, PA – February 24, 2018
I love work we do , repairing and rebuilding electric motors, the benefits provided are excellent, the IBEW manager does his best to help us workers, but he's stuck between us workers, and our company's management, and this limits his ability to help us with our unsatisfactory wages we are being payed. I work only about 7 months out of the year, and with the new Unemployment laws, it makes us often times ineligible for UC benefits. This makes my life very difficult. I can't afford oil for my furnace, and since I use space heaters to keep from freezing all winter, I now owe over $2000 for my electric bill! Time to find a new job! IBEW needs to help us find more work all year. If we had steady work throughout the year, I would stay.
