    Do not wear a suit to the interview. I used to be local 503 which is in harriman also ( orange and rockland utilities) i went to the interview straight from work in dirty boots jeans and a t shirt, they loved it. I'm now local 320 out of Poughkeepsie. Dress decent, but remember what you are applying for.

    It's funny how times have changed, back in 86 if you didn't wear a suit you might as well have skipped the interview beside you weren't getting in.

    Congrats brotherr happy for you .

    being a local 3 member must of been preety cool having the opertunity to work on some

    hudge projects and the pride and honour that comes with it .

    since I've been going through the process of joining ibew, I guess you can say I caught

    the union bug .

    ive been studying how labor unions started , how the ibew started with Henry miller.

    etc . ordered stickers and shirts online lol.

    i watched a documentary on the freedom tower and it was amasing the craftsmanship and union pride that went into that building almost brought tears to my eyes.

    when the towers got hit their were some ibew brothers that passed and they wrote their names on the highest point of the tower to honor their lost brothers.

    it was a awsome documentary to watch really made me feel proud of this opertunity in front
    of me.

    ill be taking a paycut from 25ph to 12$ph and having to start all over again .

    but it will be an honor to be able to say I'm ibew and part of the brotherhood.

    I watched anouther doc on how the linesman ibew members in Cali , started to strike

    In the 20's against the railroad company's for 8 hour days and weeknds and how the employers

    would hire strike breakers with guns to try and break up the strikers but they stood strong ,
    Many lost their life's but they achieved fair wage , weeknds,
    safe wrkjng conditions , all things that some ppl take for granted .

    Does anyone have any tips on what I should wear ,
    .what questions they will ask me

    anything that will help me will be appreciated .
    I don't know Ibew.
    But I have been on the other side of the desk interviewing prospective candidates.
    A couple of simple pieces of advice.

    Be on time.
    Answer the questions you are asked. Not what you think you are asked. Keep it to the point and succinct. The interviewer will have time constraints.
    Be candid. If you don't know the answer to a question, just say so.

    Good luck!
