Hello guys,

I am a hopeful electrical apprentice recruit in Vermont (Local 300). I took the aptitude test on Thursday, April 26, 2012. I think I did fairly well. Hopefully I get a call for an interview (about 2 weeks, is what I hear).

I currently work on the production line at a large beverage company.

My electrical experience is fairly limited, I have about 200 hours of grunt work with my father (Master Electrician), but that's about it. I have taken a couple of classes in Industrial Maintenance (motor controls, control circuits).

I spent about 4 years in the Marine Corps, (Communications: 0621, Field Radio Operator/Comm Chief). Enjoyed the work and people, but couldn't find a woman that enjoyed waiting for 7 months while I got to go play in the sand.

If anybody has any tips or helpful advice: It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys

Tony

Steve,

You mean not strong like "muscle" wise or "work" wise

Tony
I don't know a lot about the Vermont work situation but taking into account Vermont has a small population (less than 600,000 last time I checked), is very rural and agricultural, and has no major cities or hard industry. Therefore I'd say both.

Thanks Guys

Hey guys,

Thanks for the responses.

@Steve...the rep I spoke to at the hall, and at the test, told me most of the work is in the burlington area. I don't think it would be very profitable for me to drive 100 + miles to make around 12/Hr...but "you gotta do, what you gotta do" I guess to get some hours in.

@Harry...Thanks brother.

And I like living in a state that's small, rural and still agricultural.

I believe that our unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the country.

The biggest problem in Vermont is the damn Yuppies.

So perhaps you can tell me what major cities and industries (besides the aforementioned and Ben & Jerry's ice cream) there are in Vermont? :rolleyes:
First off, i'm sick to death of those two old hippies having any form of representation of Vermont Pete, i denounce them as the Cherry Garcia sucking traitors to the state flag that they are

2nd, there is no industry, unless you like cows, or women who could double as plow truck ballast


3rd, your wrong about muscle, we've the biggest dumbest musclebound farmboys on God's green earth here

and we're dang proud of 'em too!
