Entry Level Electric Department

The City of St. Clairsville, Ohio, has an opening on its electric distribution crew for a lineman which will start work as a laborer. The rate of pay depends on the candidate’s education and/or experience and ranges between $17.16 to $17.92 per hour, plus full benefits. A First Class or Journeyman is the preferred level of knowledge, skills, and abilities, but the City will consider training a candidate without that experience if a level of formal education has been achieved.

Candidates must have some formal education from a Vocational School or Technical College in a lineman training program, or have experience working as a lineman apprentice, as a minimum qualification. The selected candidate, if less experienced, shall be expected to make steady progress toward attaining the position of “First Class Lineman” by demonstrating necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities. The candidate shall have three to five years from the date of hire to obtain this ranking, as a condition of employment provided steady progress is achieved.

Depending on the experience level, the employee shall train under supervision in the areas of distribution/transmission, substation, high voltage line and system construction, and maintenance. Selected candidate will work initially on unenergized circuits and later work on energized circuits from lower to maximum system voltage. The work shall progress from assisted to unassisted duties.

Candidates must learn to climb poles, work out of, and operate a bucket truck and other relevant tools and equipment.

Candidates must be available on a moment’s notice for call out. Must have a valid driver’s license. Candidates must be willing to attend formal training classes as determined by the employer.

As a condition of acceptance on this job, candidates who are otherwise qualified will be required to take and pass the appropriate State/Federal driver’s licensing requirements, as well as pass a pre-employment physical.
