So I applied this past January and interviewed on 4/11/17. I think I did decent on it and feel I could be in the top 100 at least.

Who else applied to local 8? Lets post up our ranks once we get them and figure out how fast they're calling. I was told they expect to let us know early May and they need a lot of apprentices...

Far be it for me to try and be a moderator here but, if you all keep posting topics for individual locals, this will turn into a very cluttered area. There is a topic for interview rankings, did you check there?

I think it's just fine. If I'm in violation of any rules then please post it and I'll remove the topic. Otherwise if it bothers you, just don't click on it.

Figured you would take it wrong. I have been in the trade for 16 years and I do check the other generic rankings thread, to see if I can be helpful in answering any questions. I was more trying to point out that if there were threads for every local individually, someone like me would be much less apt to going through them all. By all means continue with each unique thread if you feel like it is what you need.

I'm on a few forums and when I read your previous post I thought you were another forum nazi -- But I understand your point. The more help the better by all means, I'm glad there is an experienced mechanic going through the posts.

I'm glad there's a local 8 thread. I interviewed on 4/13 and felt like I did great. I don't have welding certs or any applicable experience so I'm very concerned about how that will affect my overall ranking. Does anyone have any idea how many apprentices this local took on last time?

Good luck guys!

That's a lot of apprentices. I'm just wondering how far down I'll be based solely on my lack of experience. I hope it's not too bad.

The latest list is still active and could of went passed 250 not sure.im talking about the list prior to the present one right now. But the present list should end in around two or three weeks once they rank interviewers

Yeah they've taken a lot of apprentices... hope it's not too saturated once its our turn haha. At the interview, Jim was saying that they had 130 probies within the past year alone.

I didn't have any experience when I joined the IBEW apprenticeship. They just want someone that's teachable and dependable.

As an interviewer I look for a few things.

A clean 1-2 page resume, the first thing I do is look at your resume and see what you have been up to the last few years. It doesn't have to be fancy but it shows you prepared, bring multiple copies of everything, there will be multiple interviewers from the field and management. Bring proof of everything on that resume, transcripts, current certs, letter of recommendations, the more you bring the better. This is a career interview not just a job interview, how prepared you are speaks volumes.

How did you find out about the trade? And what do you know about the work we do.

Be able to talk about your ability to work with tools and do hands on work. I've interviewed NASA scientists to dog walkers, tell me why you want to do our work and don't tell me because it pays well. Prepare to speak about things not on your resume that apply to hands on work. Hobbies etc.

Hope this helps, I know its a nerve racking process. Think of a way to stand out beyond the other hundreds of people being interviewed. Realize that this is a small proud trade and we want what is best for the future.

Thank you for that information you just posted. How do you feel about the whole "dress to impress" or "dress like you're a worker" (clean of course, just not slacks and tie?)
