Hello everyone. I am sure this is not the right area to post this but I wanted it to be in the canadian area. I am a 35 year old electrician in London Ontario looking to make a move to another company. I am looking into working with well established small to medium sized companies that do industrial work and some commercial work. I have a 309a, 442a, and a masters. Currently I am employed in the automotive industry. If you know of a good company that pays my current wage of $30/hr + or - $2/hr then point them to this posting or send a private message.
Thanks

Now is not the best time for starting a new job, where are you working. I am also from London, Ontario and things are slowing down as far as I can see, there is the option of sub contract work in residential areas but I would still keep a FT job.

Would you be willing to pay your own move to Alberta?

I'm looking for one new guy. We do reno's exclusively, mostly kitchens, which almost always means a change in panelboards in the area that we concentrate on here in Edmonton. 10 hour days. Someone that's a Journeymen only and looking for or has a Master certificate is our requirement.

Ya gotta be extremely good with our clients too.

It starts at $45.00 per hour and incrementally gets to $75.00 per hour in 3 years if you make our customers happy with no complaints. You will need to be a Master Electrician by that time too. (Or my wife will kill me). :-)

That wage seems fairly good to an ontarian, but the cost of living is so much higher there in Alberta.
