Who?

Pacific Power is appealing to me because they are a big company that treats their employees well and pays good. When picking a company, I want to find one that will last my whole career. They have a good record being that they started in 1910.

What?

Pacific Power started in 1910, and was comprised of four companies. The companies were from Astoria and Pendleton, Oregon, and Yakima and Walla Walla, Washington. They came together forming Pacific Power, which served 7,000 people. PPC now serves more than 724,000 homes and businesses.

A Journeyman Lineman is someone who maintains and fixes power lines.

To become a lineman, I would have to spend three to five years in a classroom and in on-the job training. Then I would have to pass the final exam; which would make me a certified lineman.

The Average Salary for a Journeyman Lineman is $42.52 per hour. Between $48,198 - $106,046 a year.

Where?

I am working on power lines anywhere from in the city to on top of mountains.

To get to be a journeyman, I would spend some of my time in a classroom, but the majority would be on the job training.

When?

I gathered the necessary skills with the on the job training.

Why?
