I just figured I’d start a thread for the people that applied for the Philadelphia opening. I’m due to take my aptitude test Dec 11th. There’s a lot of good info in these other threads about general info but I’m more interested in Local 5 info. Work Locations, places to live, how you like the job, etc... It’ll also be good to hear from other applicants during this process. I am a veteran of Coast Guard avionics work on helicopters and am very excited for this new chapter of my life. Good luck to all and any info about the area would be greatly appreciated.

That definitely doesn’t hurt! I ended up withdrawing from the local five interview because I interviewed at Harrisburg and I am also waiting on the Allentown office. Good luck to you brotha

Thanks brotha, That's definitely what it feels like and good luck to you! Let me know when you get your ranking. I'm just curious when they are going to be sent out since that was the original local I applied for.

The president of Local 5 told me if I didn’t hear from him by 4/20 to reach out to him....my buddy is a little more than a year in and told me like 1/3 of union guys will be retiring within the next three years...I can’t wait to join this brotherhood!!!

You never know brotha, they could hire a ton of people in the next 2 years. Definitely keep trying! It seems like this is the trade to get into! IDK if you are willing to relocate or make a drive but keep an eye out for nearby locals as well if so. I know Allentown and Harrisburg just opened theirs up recently so may be awhile before they open up again. If you are a veteran though I hear helmets to hardhats will let you apply to any local a few times a year. Good luck to ya. I still haven't got my call yet for Harrisburg but they just opened up for hiring on the 15th so i'm just trying to wait patiently.
