The day in the life of an electrician is as different as the variety of electricians out there (watch the video below for more content). A general maintenance electrician will have a different day than a journeyman working on a large commercial project. What kind of work do you want to be doing? If you’re considering a career in electrical work, it’s essential to know your average day.
Good electricians have a schedule to keep and many calls to be made. If you are on call, your shift may start at 5:00 am when the first call comes in for help to get ready for the day. If this is not something that interests you, perhaps you would make an excellent builder or pre-apprentice. Your morning will begin at around 7:30 am.
Electrical jobs can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a night long, depending on the task. Electricians are often called at the last minute because they need someone immediately, which means keeping up with our busy schedules can sometimes be stressful! That being said, they wouldn’t trade it for anything less than perfection. Call home for more details!
