Electrician, Orange ,CA - August 30, 2012
A normal day would consist of a 12 hour shift possibly longer depending on turn over date for job. Tasks would vary from panel installations to running new dedicated circuits to underground installation. I enjoyed working there due to the fact that I enjoy doing various forms of electrical tasks. I have learned numerous other trades while working here as well as gaining immeasureable amounts of electrical knowledge from our electrical foreman. I believe since working here my troubleshooting skills have vastly improved. There is a definite rift between the employees and management. At times it feels as though management does not listen to what its own employees are telling therefore creating some strained working conditions. I believe the hardest part of my job was the amount of pressure that is put on the workforce to complete a job while being very limited on man power especially on the electrical side. This would cause very long days even as long as twenty four hour shifts. I did enjoy my time here and am grateful for the experience i have gained but unfortunately i do not see much future growth here and feel at a stalemate at times.
