My company is having a hard time finding qualified electricians. If anyone is interested in a good paying job send me a message. I just work as an electrician at Olin, I'm not any part of the hiring process. But I will point you in the right direction.

my e-mail:

Position: Journeyman Electrical/Electronic Technician (electrician)

Union: IBEW 649

pay: ~$25.00/hr plus shift differential, medical, dental, retirement, 401K

overtime?: Yes. sometimes alot and sometimes forced until you get some seniority behind you.

shiftwork?: Yes. Until seniority allows you to keep straight days
