Job Description

Could you envision a world without power? Would civilization be able to thrive in a society without those who are passionate about bringing power to the masses? PeopleReady is now hiring for experienced Journeyman Electricians to provide energy for our clients. Journeyman Electricians will install and repair electrical components on our residential or commercial jobsites supervising a team of apprentices or other laborers. Almost every building has an electrical power, communications, lighting, and control system that is installed during construction and maintained after that. The systems that power the lights, appliances, and equipment make people’s lives and jobs easier and more manageable.

Electricians generally focus on either construction or maintenance; you may do both. They usually start their work by reading blueprints – technical diagrams that show the locations of circuits, outlets, load centers, panel boards, and other equipment. After resolving where all the wires and components will go, electricians install and connect the wires to circuit breakers, transformers, outlets, or other components and systems, and then test their work using ammeters, ohmmeters, and voltmeters. Once all the tests are passed, you will make notes and records to ensure the integrity of the electrical systems that you helped implement. We would love to hire the perfect fit for this full-time position today.

Responsibilities

The Journeyman Electrician role includes but is not limited to planning and performing jobs of installing and maintaining a variety of electrical equipment such as control panels, switchboards, junction boxes, switches, etc. Connects and disconnects electric powered machines; repairs motors and generators; replaces fuses and sets circuit breakers on high- and low-tension circuits. Diagnoses electrical trouble. Uses hand and power tools. Works from wiring diagrams. Planning may involve determination of method and sequence of operation and selection of materials to be used. Works independently and may provide direction to less experienced electricians.
