Nope. Believe it or not my whole job right now is 4" instrument tray, the installation and bonding of such.
But they don't give us the layout drawings and there are multiple engineered tray runs around any given point, so, a good portion of our field run trays will be wrong. But I don't think they care.
I'm pretty sure they know they will lose the contract in a few weeks and they're just trying to bill for everything they can before that happens.
Most industrial insulation companies are full of women because the work is less physically demanding.
My current job grosses around 11.5Grand/month CAD. If you know anyone that works in the oil sands you'll know this isn't bullshit.
Sounds fun. Shit tons of PLC eh?
Do you have on the job experience, or have you only done the school component?
I'm glad none of you fags wanna do gods work of insulation. It's driven up our pay the less and less people wanna do it. Last couple contracts have put us above the electricians and plumbers/pipefitters. Still can't touch the sprinkler fitter pay. Idk why them fags get so much they don't do shit and all there pipe is pre made
Hey man I'm sorry, if you change your tampon and double your iq you can be a sparkie too
5 years of classwork usually 6 hours a week. Modern electrical systems are pretty complex so it definitely not super easy but worth it if you want to make something of yourself.
Depends on what lifestyle youre after. If you dont mind being outside and on call year round be a lineman, they make bank. If you want to work mostly indoors on devices and equipment and leave work at work be an inside wireman.
I've met a few sparkys that are great guys and great workers. Usually the lead or his right hand. The majority leave their fucking carts blocking hallways and walking slow as shit in front of me. Every time ring and string was in their bid I have to redo half them and they miss more than one or two.
Good luck with the cancer faggot

Waddup playa ibew 540 in the hizzi
Check this IBEW bitches.
I worked all last year. I took off two weeks as soon as I knew my wife was pregnant. Set up Unemployment claim. Babys born, get laid off on purpose, medical bills paid, birth was 100% covered. Stay at home Dad making 657.00 a week. Unemployment claim runs out.
Another 26 weeks paid vacation. Work for cash here and there. Live like king, no work.
Might go back to work in August if I feel like it. Fuck the system.

You could do the same thing in the IBEW. Except they handle your unemployment. And retirement. And benefits. And find you work when you need/want it. And arbitrate for you if you get fucked. And probably get paid more.
Industrial electronics Student here, i'm working with one type Of PLC which is the S7-1200 SIEMENS, do you guys use Siemens more or Allen-Bradley?
Also, how do I get better at PLC programming? I can't seem to get the hang of it but I really want to learn it.
I'm thinking about getting a CDL soon. It seems like a more comfortable job than electrician, drive from about 8 to 8. Pocket the money for the hotel and sleep in the cab.
What do you think? Anyone care to talk about it?
Companies dont pay for hotels for you..i know i drove otr for 10 years with 1 million accident free miles...cdl driving isnt a good career for someone whos married or has children.

My family has always done security systems so i know some of that from helping them at jobs and i did a building construction class in high school so i learned framing and roofing and shit. Cant get a job though because i dont have a car, which sucks because i am 18 and have the year of experiance from school and i have an OSHA 10, so otherwise id be able to get a job easy. There is a home depot within ealking distance that ive got a chance at interviewing to be a freighter though. I plan to get my electricians apprentice license soon but idk what im going to try to get into, im thinking electrician or plumbing.
