Talk to the local and they are passed number 343 and before number 357

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 05/22/19 11:16 PM

I was number 355. I got called today. They said they’re hiring 2 guys. I turned it down so good luck to everyone else coming up on the list!

Did you turn it down because of the company or type of job? Or because it was LA?

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 08/08/19 02:41 PM

I’ve heard that you can call and get the current number from the locals. Would I call the local or the region supervisor?

I’m placed in a smaller local but would like to just call someone and get an idea of where they are in their hiring.

Thanks for the help folks and stay safe out there.

Test and interview scores are only good for the 2 year hiring period.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 09/27/19 11:25 PM

False..I thought that to. with me passing that test I was able to interview in Portland in June this year and rank #81 and interview in Dallas in July this year and rank #51. Best of luck to all you!

Interesting, that's not what they told us in Seattle, if we dont get hired in this 2 year span, we had to take test and interview all over again.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 11/09/19 04:17 PM

Congrats, let me know where you get hired. There’s a lot of posts on here already that will tell you what to expect and what you need. Basically don’t be late (30-15min early), pay attention, stay busy, work hard, be safe and don’t be a [censored]. Carry a notepad and pen on you all the time and take notes if you have a hard time remembering Crap. Tape measure, channel locks, knife, flip flop screwdriver.

Congrats! Gives quite a bit of hope for the rest of us that they'll probably reach around 500 when the next list is in place.

Good morning fellas, I recently just received my interview date at the end of January . Do you guys have any pointers or questions that they will ask?
Posted By: Erok

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 01/03/20 05:14 PM

Good luck, glad someone updated us on the new list. I took my interview a few years ago so I don’t remember all the questions I think there somewhere on these forums (examples.) I brought in all my certifications, photos of work I’ve done, letters of recommendation from previous employers.. Basically bring in EVERYTHING you got. Put it in a folder and make sure they’re copies so you can leave it with them if they want you to. Bring in 3 copies of your resume. One for each interviewer and one for you if you need it. Be confident and honest, we don’t like liars in this trade. Once again good luck and keep us updated.

I have my certificates from my previous trade and also all of my work experience and also some projects I’ve completed with my dad outside of work. I put pictures and all of it in 2 portfolios. Does all of that sound good? Glad to hear you got in. What number did you rank and how fast did they call you?

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/12/20 01:46 PM

In Vegas it took 2 full months I believe for them to call any one, I’m on that list as well. I looked back at the forum for Vegas but that’s just my best guess, all my elevator buddies say the list will move fast so we will see?

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/12/20 04:45 PM

I would say learn from this recruitment and come back better prepared
I improved from my placing in Vegas that was 173 now in la I got 57
#1 I was more comfortable and allot more confident and I did not give way more info than needed I also didn’t shoot myself in the foot lol

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/12/20 04:52 PM

Thanks for the info, i'm not giving up but i don't know how to improve maybe i have that ranking number cus my background was poor and i don't have certification or work experience on a related field
Posted By: FB323

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/12/20 05:01 PM

Try taking some certification courses at trade schools. What I got from my interview is that they really liked that I was certified in fields related to the trade. Also, showing that you understand what the job entails and relating your answers to show that you would be a good fit helps a lot to. Hope that helps.

Hello guys. Just got my rank for LA (#283) not sure if that’s an ok number since I’m not sure how many people made it on the list. Does anyone know roughly how many people are on the list?

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/13/20 01:39 AM

I heard close to 750 passed the interview

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/13/20 01:45 AM

Thanx for that info low rider. I guess that’s not bad. I honestly thought it was going to be a little better of a rank since it was my 3rd time interviewing.

Actually might have a really good shot at getting in with Vegas since I’m 27 people away from my number there at the moment.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/13/20 02:07 AM

What number are they on in Vegas last I heard they were on 80 and I originally ranked 173 there

Not sure. It sounds like at least 2 people have been called. But with all this Corona virus shutdown Crap I'm a bit worried.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/16/20 07:02 PM

Yea me to, lowrider. I have a feeling we’re gonna be waiting around for a while until they start calling out again.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/19/20 02:36 AM

Someone on reddit said they were on around 20 before they stopped calling people out, if they did at all

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/25/20 11:50 PM

Hey there, I’m new to this entire thing. I’m number 609. And I know it’s going to take awhile before I’m in. I’m just curious as to when anyone might know they’ll start calling out again.
Posted By: ancthree

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/26/20 03:20 AM

No real way of knowing. The talk on the forums is that companies are going to finish off all current projects and wait to see how the economy reacts to all this COVID-19 crap. If things take a turn for the worse, layoffs are very likely. Doubtful they'll be calling any more probies off the list for at least 4-6 months. IF things improve. Nothing concrete, mind you. Just people's opinions.
Posted By: Lowrider

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/26/20 04:03 PM

I've been hearing all probies have been laid off for a couple of the big companies already. So when this Chinese virus settles down all those guys are gonna have to get called in first. Then the guys from this current class. It's a fucked up mess. I ranked in the 70's and I'm hoping I get my number called within this 2 year window we have.
Posted By: FB323

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/28/20 02:34 AM

Could it be possible since this is such a unique event that they might extend that 2 year window?
Hopefully they do and that gives all of us enough time to get a call.
I honestly feel like they would considering that the processs is very lengthy and probably want to get things back to normal as quick as possible.
Posted By: ancthree

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/28/20 08:45 PM

Doubt they would extend. With that said, some of the financial analysts are saying that once it looks like they got COVID-19 under control, the economy is expected to rev back up quickly. Like, REAL quick.

If that happens right as the 2 year period is about to end, the union might find that it is in the best interest of all -the union, the contractors and most importantly, our country's economy- to provide helpers to its signatory contractors ASAP and extend the list's call-time period. No way of knowing for sure what'll happen, though.
Posted By: Silly

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 03/29/20 07:22 PM

The reason it is a two year window is for issues during the hiring sequence. Sincerely doubt they will extend the current window, when the only draw back is going to be a re test...find a financial or time related reason, and you are on to something, simply putting out people who technically are not in our union yet, won't be a reason.

Re: Local 18 Los Angeles Interview Rank - 05/15/20 02:48 AM

So I heard through the grapevine they should start to pick up work for the apprentices as well as foreman around mid June. Not 100% certain though.

How reliable is your source? Cant wait to get that call. Keeping my hopes up 🤞

It is a very reliable source from 3 different people in the union itself. I don’t say anything false.
