If interested please call Aleah at 515-657-5468 or email at alentsch@aerotek.com. Looking forward to partnering with you on this career opportunity!!


Looking to add electrical apprentices to a tenured crew. Not requiring any electrical experience, but must be willing to want to learn the trade, be committed to learning/shadowing/training, be willing to go to schooling for the trade, and eventually test out within the field.

Would love people with commercial OR residential electrical experience, but very open to people with no electrical experience who are willing to learn.

Must be proficient with hand tools (hammer, screw driver, battery operated drills) and can read a tape measurer to 1/16th of an inch and do basic math. For instance: helper might be asked to do a lot of layout work. *Example: we need to place this light in the center of the room, figure out where it goes. They'd be required to measure the width of the room, divide by 2 and find the center. Another more complex example. We need to center these three lights in the middle of the room, figure out where they go. Candidates will also be expected to be able to do quick addition and subtraction accurately in their head. For instance, when bending pipe, they'll have to subtract the bend difference from the pipe length. Ex: Do 39-6 quickly in their head. If they can't do this, they are not going to be a fit.

Will be climbing ladders, and might be using lifts, so someone can't be afraid of heights. (some lifts go up to 30 feet) proper safety PPE provided if on lift.

Must be able to decipher colors due to wiring; Must be able to lift 35-50 lbs. consistently all day.

If someone is 2-3 years through ABC apprenticeship or has 2-3 years legit experience (not installing an outlet once for a friend) then that's a $17-20/hr candidate. Journeyman are $30+.
