THE ENGINE REVVING HOUSTON'S ECONOMY
Electricians install, operate, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems in petrochemical manufacturing plants. Some companies are looking for electricians who can make recommendations and design the electrical system on a site, while others are simply looking for electricians who can maintain and repair systems that are already in place, as well as perform inspections and make sure safety measures are being used.
What to expect
Are you a problem solver? Do you like working with your hands? Electricians are always on the go and performing a wide range of physical activity. You must be comfortable performing duties at a variety of heights, be safety oriented, and have an eye for quality and detail.
