I enjoy the fact that I do something for a living that not everyone can do. The part I dislike the most is fixing things that people damage purposely, especially when they aren't held accountable. My job is very challenging and has many opportunities to learn. What keeps me here is the money and the fact that I feel appreciated.

Things I like most: high voltage splices and stress cones, knowing I can do something not everybody else can, good class of people to work with (usually), climbing through the rack 30'-60' off the ground, seeing a conduit run complete, straight, level and right. Continuing the electrical craft in my family like my dad, grandpa, and all but one uncle on my dads side.

Things I dislike the most: summer heat, rework due to another craft or damage, MI cable, plastabond, anything fiberglass.
