Tradesmen & Skilled Workers

We realize that working in an office isn’t for everyone. If you’re interested in a rewarding, challenging career such as gas worker or electrical lineman, we have plenty of opportunities for you.

When Mother Nature does her worst and knocks out power, our crews are at their best, working long hours to keep the public safe and restore service.

Here’s a sampling of some of the field and skilled labor opportunities that are often available here:

Fleet Mechanics: Are you good at fixing vehicles? If you enjoy variety and are looking for a mechanic job with good pay and benefits, we want to talk to you.

Behavioral Assessments & EEI Exams

For many positions, we will ask applicants to take a pre-hire behavioral assessment. For select technical positions, we will also ask applicants to take an employment test developed by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI). If you apply to a job that requires either of these assessments, your application will be reviewed by a recruiter. If selected, you’ll receive an email invitation with instructions on how to proceed.

Energy Saving Tip

Energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs may cost a bit more up front, but they can save big money over the life of the product. Plus, some energy-efficient equipment may be eligible for rebates to offset the initial cost.

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Install carbon monoxide detectors and annually hire a qualified contractor to inspect your home for proper ventilation.
