Worked when they needed me. No steady pay.
Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) – Dallas, Texas – May 22, 2016
To get 40 hours of work, you basically had to work 60 hours one week then 20 hours the next week. I hired in as A licensed journeyman electrician, even though I also hold A Masters license. I would still be working for them if it was not for the starting pay they offered me. I had to do A lot of traveling in A company vehicle that was old and in bad shape, the computer they issued me was over 10 years old and would not work so I just used my own laptop. They did not issue me A company phone. I had to download apps on my personal phone and use it for business.
The worst part was getting phone calls late at night from project managers in other states asking me if I was going to be at the next job on time, let me get A few hours sleep. They want licensed electricians who can run A job from start to finish, with no helper. I know apprentice electricians in Dallas that made more money then Staley offered me for this position.
Your paycheck was deposited on time
