Re: Local 19 Seattle - 09/14/17 02:23 PM

When was this list established? I'm new to most of this but I did email local 19 in April about openings on the east side of the state. I never heard back until last week. The opening for spokane and montana had already been posted on NEIEP website and I applied the day it opened on Aug 14th. But in the reply email I finally received on Sept 6th the lady told me Seattle was full with apprentices until 2019. Does this just mean they aren't re-establishing their list until then or that they actually aren't predicting hiring new apprentices? again, I'm new to this and I'm trying to get on in the spokane area but when I read that, I found it intriguing.

Hey everyone, I interviewed the last Wednesday of March with the union president and he said they are interviewing for three weeks and the results should be available about a week after that. The list does in fact reset when our list becomes available. Best of luck to you all! Hope to see some of you out there.

Also, anyone interviewing in Portland?

Yeah does seem like that too. Post on here brotha when u get called so we all have an idea where the list is! I wanna say give it a month bro, jump said 2 people are coming from out of town so the list won't probably move until they start

When you say two from out of town do you mean two new apprentices? Cuz Crap I'm 5 hours away and I'll be there the next morning

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 04/25/19 05:45 AM

Two new apprentices, ones from Texas, other one is from Chicago, he said two weeks til they start, so list is at a stall for now

So I called and ended up pressing 1 for general inquiries. The lady said they will be posting updates in the iuec local 19 website on the home page as they come from now on. Currently it says 20 people and she said they've hired 23 so weekly they will be posting updates if there are any.

https://www.iuec19.org

Also she said if your number is a within a couple of getting called they will give you a warning call to let you know you're coming up soon.

Just throwing this out here like how I did the Reddit thread last week, list is out of 310 to give everyone here and idea how big the list is, 50 people failed the interview, so we're all pretty lucky to at least make the list..

Hey everyone, sorry I've been unresponsive. My phone Crap out on me and it's all I have for communication right now. I've been in the warehouse the last couple of weeks. Will be starting in the field next Monday. There's a lot of work out there. I don't think it's necessary to call everyday, that's just annoying to the hall but once a week if all you should need. You'll get a notice when your time is up. Met a lot of great people so far so just keep that phone close and if you miss a call, call back asap!

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 07/26/19 02:41 PM

I applied for Spokane 2 years ago.. they said up to 20 openings and 3 months after the process they had three apprentices laid off. I quit checking on the list after getting hired through the UA, but last I checked it never even moved. I work on job sites around eastern Washington with elevator guys and some of them have told me it has taken them 4 to 5 years to finish the apprenticeship because things slow down often and they work for a while then get laid off for a while. Maybe somebody has more insight then me for Spokane? Just letting you know what my experience has been

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 07/27/19 12:02 AM

Dmart144 isn’t the apprenticeship supposed to be five years anyway?
Posted By: Silly

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 07/27/19 04:46 AM

Apprenticeship will take 4-5 years, flat out no way around that. First 6 months you don't take class, so do the math.

Seattle is booming, we have more TMs working now than I have seen in 15 years, but we have peaked with qualified mechanic material. They still are taking transients last I heard, but there aren't a whole lot of people willing to move. Until this next group tests out, and the second years become TM eligible, the list will slow.

On a good note, the last bunch of probies we took at TKE seem to have been pretty good. I even kept my first day hire, and that's fairly unusual for me.

So me being in the #40's should I be looking at next year to get hired?
Posted By: Lepchaun415

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 07/29/19 04:29 AM

The only way to speed up the apprenticeship is to challenge the courses. It’s really hard and even to do that you need to have certain qualifications.

Maybe you misunderstood the guy. You have 18 months to work 12 months of 100 hours or more. If you don’t get those hours in the first 18 months you start over.

5 year apprenticeship hombres.

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 08/23/19 07:18 AM

Yeah, apprenticeship is around 5 years and that’s assuming you pass all of your classes and work over 8,000 hours. You’re not eligible to start your 4 years of classroom training until you finish the 6 month online program first. And once you’re done with school you have to wait for your invite to take the mechanics exam which takes another 2-3 months if you have all your ojt hours in order.

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 01/08/20 12:20 AM

I don't know what you're trying to pay for rent man but the hall is in Seattle and it's expensive as Screw and packed. I live in Kirkland and hate it. I have dogs and I'm moving out to Monroe when my lease is up. Only about an hour out and way cheaper. I'm paying 2k for a two bed apt. I live with my girlfriend though. The everett/ Mill Creek area is nice and traffic isn't too bad. The further south you go towards Tacoma the worse traffic is. Top 5 worst cities in America for traffic.

My lady got a full time teaching job offer there and didn't want to commute🤷. I'm looking for property for me and my dogs. A shop or garage is needed.

Re: Local 19 Seattle - 03/05/20 05:24 PM

I'm a good ways out in the 140's. I'm just hoping the list moves a little quicker so that they make it that far. In the back of my mind I fully expect the list to stop in the 120's and I'll have to start over this coming January. It's okay, I'm still really excited about the career opportunity and next time I'll know exactly what to expect whereas this time I was like a deer in the headlights. I actually did really good on the test, but I get so nervous for interviews (especially ones that could change my life!).

Just called this morning and the list is at #77. Jim said that the construction companies in town are getting some larger projects to a point where they will need more elevator guys soon. He think it should start moving in about a month and could move fairly quickly.
