Decent place to learn, sometimes
N/A (Current Employee) – Broadway, VA – April 27, 2017
Trumbo as a company will take the time to teach you the skills you need as an electrician, if you are willing to keep the pace and want to learn. The work is mostly construction, occasionally small jobs will need a few people (typically a licensed superintendent and a helper or two) and the larger jobs practically demand your time, when the work is there your days will be 9 hours or more and often 6 days each week, working the 6th is sometimes made mandatory. Construction sites as a workplace do take some adjusting, depending on your work background it may be a surprise. The job is largely what you make it, and who you are working for or with, that will mostly determine how much you enjoy it. One day you could be 50 feet in the air mounting outdoor lighting fixtures listening to music with a nice breeze, the next day could be spent shoulder deep in a muddy ditch moving rocks while the operator belittles you for a laugh.
