Start your electrical career before you graduate.
Gregory Electric has partnered with South Carolina high schools to make electrical education and training available for students. Called youth apprenticeships, these part-time jobs provide income and enhance your employability.
Youth apprentices earn money, build trade skills and earn credits toward high school graduation. Whether after school or over the summer, you can learn skills employers seek, including electrical construction and safe work practices. It’s powerful experience that can mean higher wages and earlier advancement for you.
Typical Youth Apprentice Advancement
Year 1 Beginning Helper (Helper I)
Year 2 Helper (Helper I)
Year 3 Top Helper (Helper II)
Year 4 Electrician (Electrician I)
With competency, apprentice wages increase by 10% at each stage. What’s more, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a lead electrician, foreman, superintendent or project manager by the time you receive your high school diploma.
After graduation, your apprenticeship can continue. Many electricians and linemen came to Gregory Electric through our federally recognized, four-year apprentice program. A job at Gregory opens a world of attractive benefits for you and your family including free health insurance, dental and vision insurance, life insurance, profit sharing and more.
If you’re interested in the youth apprentice program, ask your guidance counselor for an application packet.
