Rack up some time,work as hard as you can,learn everything you can about the electrical trade,read the NEC,it is your new bible ,be the best everyday,and when you think your the best,WORK EVEN HARDER to become better than the best.Started working non union commercial about 3 months ago. Started absolutely green, not knowing anything. I making 11.50/hr here in California and have yet to start school. Is this a fair starting salary? What should I expect to make after a year?
Grab a small note book for you pocket. Take notes and refer back to them. Even if you only have time at lunch, jot a few lines down with the date and location.jeromjenkins said:Thanks for the advice. Things are going well. I am slow but have learned a lot in the first couple months. 2 apprentices have been let go since I started, and I am still here so that's a plus. As for the write stretcher my boss warned Me about it before my first day on the job
There is a chance that you will be making $11.50 in a year.What should I expect to make after a year?
I'm not sure what weca is, look around some local junior college night school electrician classes. I think as far as your wage just be glad you have a job for now. you can always apply to get into the Union but don't mention that to your boss. don't be afraid to think big is far as your education goes, Construction Management, business degree at Sac State.Sacramento and haven't started school yet but I was looking at weca
Good advice here.Grab a small note book for you pocket. Take notes and refer back to them. Even if you only have time at lunch, jot a few lines down with the date and location.
