I am working as a contractor/consultant employee at DWP right now ( I am not considered exempt, because I am an employee of a subcontractor).
I asked around and we do have one Exempt Employee hired in through this Electrical Mechanic position (I believe he had much experience that qualified him for this position).

As far as clean record, City of Los Angeles can disqualify you for conviction of criminal offense. They also look at your application for any missing time periods where you weren't in school, training or working, and can claim you are delinquent! so don't leave any time frames empty.

good luck
This is great info. So do you think I should...

A. should wait until my apprenticeship is done at local 11 and then apply as an exempt employee

B. apply for an exempt now

C. don't worry about the exempt role

Sorry for all the questions, but you are the only person I've encountered that actually seems to know the answers.

Since you asked...
I would not put a priority on the exempt job.
Apply for multiple jobs at city of LA you are interested in, it doesn't matter if it's for DWP or another department of city. It may take a year or longer to get an interview.
When offered the job, say Yes! Then negotiate when you can start.
The city doesn't care if you start one job, get a better offer and transfer, just get your foot in the door.

good luck

It is for the Electrical Mechanic (3841) position. I am currently doing commercial electrical work. I would say I have decent knowledge of tools, able to climb, tie knots. Any other information u can offer?

Hey, just checking in to see how you fared on the physical exam? Are you in? My written exam for electrical mechanical is coming up. I'm fairly certain I will have no problems with the written exam but my buddy just got his results after his physical exam and his time wasn't good enough on one of the exercises. That is the one that makes me nervous since I haven't met anyone that has passed it.

I was wondering if you remembered what exactly do they test you on for the electrical mechanic 3841 position. I've been reviewing just about everything but if I could narrow it down that would be awsome. Thanks in advance I really appreciate any help.

This question is also for you...how did you fare in this process? Did you get in?
