Electrical Helper Wanted

Do you prefer working with your hands over a computer?   Do you get bored with repetitive work?  Would you rather be outdoors than indoors on most days?  If you said “yes” to these questions, becoming an electrical helper at No Shorts Electric may be a great fit for you.

No Shorts Electric is seeking applicants in Fall of 2020.  A helper spends the first 6 – 12 months learning the basics about electrical work.  They help their coworkers by pulling wire, getting tools, digging trenches, preparing materials and jobsite cleanup.  The helper must work well individually and with a team.  The career path to become a journeyman electrician is usually 4-6 years. 

A typical day starts at 7:00am, usually meeting at a co-worker’s house or the jobsite.  The company works on a wide variety of jobs that might include installing new light fixtures in a residential home; running electrical for a hot tub or pool; electrical changes for a kitchen remodel; fixing a broken light in a barn or wiring a new x-ray machine in a dental office, just to name a few! 

Due to the variety of job sites, a helper can expect to work in conditions that are hot and cold, clean and dirty, and include tight spaces like attics or crawl spaces.  Lunch is usually spent eating in the work van and breaks are at the jobsite.  The helper will learn directly from a journeyman electrician and work 1:1 most days.   The average day ends between 4:00 – 4:30pm depending on customer needs.  Each day is different, especially for a helper.
