I'm just curious about what the percentage break down is for the members of this board.
I would consider myself a commercial electrician with about 85 to 95% of my experience in commercial applications. The rest would be industrial and manufacturing with a "sprinkle" of residential. I was a maintenance electrician in the Navy, but I'm not including those 4 years.

My background is mostly in the electronics side of things. I worked in telecoms (telephone, TV, telex etc.) and still do service work and freelance work for tech. publishers.

I do basic electrical wiring work on a part-time basis as and when it crops up; probably only about 25% of my working time.

It's almost entirely residential, with an occasional light commercial job such as a small store or similar (just finished a job at a local pub).

I work as a maintenance electrician for a Las Vegas showroom. I maintain and design electrical, control, and data systems for a wide array of systems in and around a 1.9 million gallon pool. I also have a side architectural / consultation firm specializing in theatres and auditoriums.

I did mostly custom residential for 10 years with a lot of commercial and industrial mixed in as well as the yearly grain dryer/bin construction and maintenance. For the last 5 years my main work has been industrial and schools but I am starting a new custom home and a medical center now while still taking care of a manufacturing plant and a seed grain facility. So I guess I'm all over the place.

I have a day gig ang my own baby, which I'm hoping to make my day gig sometime.
I do the Electrical & Instrumentation in a chemical research plant by day. My business currently is 90% residential old work. I hope to break into commercial & industrial eventually, but as long as I have my day job I can't provide the availability that would need.

My background is in electronics, as well. Started out in TV repair shops, fixing consumer electronics back when the stuff was still designed to be repaired. I also worked for several years in broadcast radio/TV, doing transmitter and equipment maintenance.

I currently work full-time as an electronic instrumentation designer for an environmental research lab. Spend most of my time on the bench, working with chips, resistors, scopes, etc.

Part of my work involves the installation of remote weather monitoring equipment on rooftops, etc. As far as electrical work goes on these, it basically consists of a single 120VAC line to the roof, and LOTS of low voltage wiring. The contract we received to do this work required a licensed electrician to do the installations, so my employer paid for my licensing classes several years ago.

I pick up extra money on the weekends doing about 90% residential and 10% commercial work.
