My typical day at work goes smoothly....I've learned to have patience with the new hires and to be calm. The hardest part of my job was dealing with new/re-hires...Would have to explain the application over and over again. The most enjoyable part of the job is paperwork.
I was extremely passionate about the job and passion yields success. I was faced with some extremely dangerous situations in the field and with the proper training I received I was able to overcome some extreme conditions to get the task done.
All benefits were completely paid for by the company with a excellent Pension plan.
Becasue it was contract work Job Security was limited and no paid sick days
Not just any one can be a lineman it takes a strong individual who is on top of his game and has a very strong work ethic. You are dealing with everything from 4160 to 7200 volts all day long. No room for error.

Needed to speak and understand Spanish. Low pay scale.Managment could be on one day and not very organized the next. To many relatives working together, there were clicks you had to fit into if you wanted to advance in the company

A typical day at work was hard, dirty work. What I learned how to prep for the lineman. The management was good. My co-workers were friendly. The hardest part of the job was spending most of my time away from my family. The enjoyable part of the job was the pay.
