I'm interested in learning more about how other businesses find and train employees. I've made a survey on our website if you'd like to fill it out but I'll also add the questions below if you'd like to answer that way.



These questions pertain to all electricians:


  1. Do you hire electricians without experience?
Then they are not electricians they are helpers or apprentices

2. How do you test whether an electrician has experience?
1. I asked my employees for references
2. I hire men that are employed
3. Call the Union Hall

What types of training are done within your company?
I encourage my men to take classes at the union hall, we hold classes such as PPE and basic testing, or we ship our men out for specific courses
How important is training in your company?
It is very important, we do specialty work
How satisfied are you with your training program?
Like anything it could use improvement, but we are so busy it is difficult to send a man away for a week
Do you feel as if you or your employees get enough training?
Of course not, there is so much to learn in this trade
Do you make the decisions at your company or have influence on decisions made?
I hope so
Where do you look for new products associated with your business?
Suppliers, here and other internet sites
Where would you look to find new training products for your business?
Suppliers, here and other internet sites

I learned most of what I know with OJT, self education (reading before online existed), talking and listening and a few seminars. And a whole lot of thinking about the subject.


If you want to learn you can, some guys are content being average others want more. How many electricians are there in the USA, how many bother to come to sites like this to ask questions and learn?
