It's likely among the most challenging. It's definitely a far cry from industrial service, which is pretty cut and dry for the most part. There's absolutely no telling what you might be up against when you do a residential service job.

Nice troll. Calling industrial service cut and dry is laughable. Service in general sucks and you can run into some ridiculous crap in resi, industrial, or anything that includes wiring.

Electrical work is easy. Getting paid sometimes is more challenging.
I find getting paid the easiest, but often dislike the work.. I'm going to start ramping up business following the model of some success stories on here. I'd love to stop doing electrical work and just be a business owner and on the rare occasion put the tool belt on.

Working is for chumps.. My body isn't built for chumpdom. I'm weak and have soft hands.

Dealing with deadbeats is a choice. If you don't think you're going to get paid, stay at home. It's cheaper.

I paid my dues. I don't deal with no-pays, slow-pays and low-pays. Some body else can have them.

I've done an awful lot of all of it and to me the hardest thing for an electrician to do is either dig service trenches in lava land or else rewiring old houses with 2 in 12 sloped roofs with boiling hot attics in places like Florida and Hawaii in the summer time. Torture. by the way I am doing one this month.......

It's all easy as long as:

-You know how to do what your doing.
-You have a plan and know what needs to be done.
-You have the proper tools.
-You have the proper material.
-The customer and the installer are in sync.
