Vans, Cars and SUV’s will not work and will not be accepted. We do not allow Toyota’s, Nissans or any other type of vehicle. We REQUIRE one of the vehicles listed above. 150’s and 1500’s are also not acceptable, regardless of your suspension system, they do not have the capacity to handle our typical workload.
PROVIDE A TEAM MEMBER:
You will need to provide a partner, this can be your mom, dad, wife, husband, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend.....you get the picture. Both of you will need to apply and both of you will need to be approved.
If you are applying as an Electrical Team, your partner should be a non-skilled individual who is 18 years of age or older that has a valid driver's license. Their job will simply be to assist you with whatever you need and take turns driving, they will not be required to do any hands on electrical work.
If you are applying as a Fuel Team, both of you must be 18 years of age or older and have valid driver's licenses. Your job functions will be to tow generators to sites and drop them for an electrician to hook up. You will also be provided a fuel transfer tank, though you may provide your own, to haul fuel to generators and fill them up according to work orders.
You must have a minimum of 2 years single phase wire termination, not conduit bending. We prefer people who have 3-phase experience but it is not required.
Requirements for fuel teams are that you are both 18 years of age or older, valid driver's licenses, clean background and the proper truck (listed above).
WITHSTAND LONG HOURS IN EXTREMELY SEVERE WEATHER:
We work IN everything from hurricanes, ice and snow storms, tornadoes and earthquakes. Our typical work day consists of 18+ hours.
NOW FOR THE GOOD PARTS!!
We pay 100% of all Lodging, Fuel and Food expenses. If you do manage to accrue one of these expenses while on our jobs, the admin staff will reimburse you cash on the spot, no waiting! There are a few items, such as alcohol and tobacco, that we do not pay for.
We know you are going to ask, so here is a basic understanding of our pay structure. Keep in mind, this is an example and we do not guarantee any specific amount of hours to any individual during any event. The Hourly and Per Diem rates, however, are guaranteed and are NON-NEGOTIABLE. Per Diem, by our definition, is daily truck pay.
Per Diem - $85.00 / Day (Always paid to owner of the truck)
Fueler Team - $24.00 / Hourly - (Split 50/50)
Electrician Team - $27.00 / Hourly - ($17.00 Electrician / $10.00 Helper)
Our average storm event is approximately 15 days. In those 15 days, we work approximately 270 hours (+/-). If we use this average, we can calculate the substantial amount of money you will make. Don't get stuck on the so called "low-ball pay rate", pay attention to the math below.
15 x $85 = $1,275, 270 x $27 = $7,290 - Electrician = $4,590 / Helper = $2,700 + $1,275 to whoever owns the truck.
15 x $85 = $1,275, 270 x $24 = $6,480 - Each member = $3,240 + $1,275 to whoever owns the truck.
Now I know what you're thinking. "I'm going to work my tail off for 270 hours, I'm only getting straight time, no overtime, these guys are insane!!" Sound about right? How about this, 90% of that time is spent either waiting on work orders or twiddling your thumbs. This is not a very laborious job. This is not extremely labor intensive. Yes, you will spend a lot of time awake, but when you receive your first check, you will be glad you did.
To sum it all up, you have virtually no expenses, we cover everything, and you get to make a ton of cash. Where else are you going to make this kind of money? This is a no brainer. We cannot make up your mind for you, but we hope you see it our way.
