The other option is do 2 years at a local bates or whatever in electrical construction and be debt free. I applied to the local union but due to no electrical experience im like 300 out of 400 on the list. Do you enjoy your electrician career? Would you do it over again? Would you recommend it to others? Do you get laid off a lot?

1. The work you are doing remains challenging and varied. Your work as an electrician means that no two days will usually be the same. Your career is going to be in a highly-skilled trade where a variety of jobs are available each day. You aren’t completing boring, routine-based work that someone could do with their eyes closed.

On a daily basis, Electricians repair or replace wiring, equipment, or fixtures, using hand tools or power tools. They use a variety of tools or equipment, such as power construction equipment, measuring devices, power tools, and testing equipment, such as oscilloscopes, ammeters, or test lamps. A typical day for an Electrician will also include:

I enjoy my actual job. I do industrial maintenance. The job politics suck. They make us work too many hours, and too many days. But that is conditional on where you are working. I make a ton of money, more than anyone in my peer group, I think my ex-girlfriend from Highschool makes more but that's it.

For those who enjoy working with their hands and solving technical challenges, a career as an electrical contractor may be an excellent option. Electrical contractors have an important job that involves installing and repairing electrical machinery that provides power to residences and businesses.

Do you guys still enjoy being an electrician and doing this as a career? I am in the trade 1 year so far, and it is going okay but I find the work is very repetitive and uninspiring. I understand I am a greenhorn and I have a long way to go but I am questioning whether this is for me.
