I know at least 4 this last year. There is about 300 working for them at anyone time. Next month starts a new season. I start back next month myself. They has a few jobs in the west, but I don't know where. Give them a call.

I talked with my supervisor about new hires today. This is a update on pay. New hires strat at 8.00 an hour , with a travel allowance of 180. per week. This will go up as you stay with the company. For those Teams that do transmittion lines the pay for the helper is 6.00 an hour. These are usally 2 people who live together. Ie husband and wife.

I have had people to say that they didn't hear back from SCC, when the sent in their application. This application has to be hand written, so your writing may not be what we are looking for. The map and reports you send in each week, are offical records of gasline inspection and maybe used in court. Also your Health and background may not be in your favor.
So if you have not heard from them in a reasonable amount of time, just send me a note and I track it down. with all companys the staff is expected to do more with less and things fall thru the cracks.

If you need more information just drop me a line.

Thanks Bob!

I'll give it a day or two and call them. I've got my first cold in probably 10 years and could not get through a conversation without coughing my head off. lol

Thanks again,

Sorry Jan, yes I was asking you. All that info you shared is exactly what I was looking for, thanks again. Now, what is the best way to apply with SCC? Since we are hoping to start in october 07, do we apply now or wait awhile?

Bob, what do you think also?

Jones park is located just off the interstate 85, they only have a daily rate, but that will let you find out who your trainer will be an what area of he or she works at. Jones is a safe park, just not a nice park for long term stayes. gravel lot and pad.That where I stay when I pass thru and have to stop by the office.

When I tained I work downtown area and stayed at park off I20 East of town, I think it was called two river, some stayed in Marietta, and worked downtown, I think it was a KOA.

If it was me I would stay at Jones for about 3-4 days. That should give you time, and it the closes to the Norcross off.

Bob, I've been following this thread for a long time now. It seems in reading the info posted here and on SCC web site, you have to carry 45 lbs of gear while doing your hike every day? Is this correct? Seems like a heavy load all day every day?? Am I misreading something? Thanks in advance. You've been very informative!

Looks like a done deal!

Report for training in Norcross on March 4.

I have found 3 possible RV Parks in Commuting distance.

Jones, Twin Lakes and Stone Mountain.

Anyone have any recommendations on the nicest park out of the three, or any other options.

Thanks

Jobs come in to the home office. Then assigned to supervisors. The home office will call you or a supervisor may.

When you apply with the company tell them at the interveiw that you only want jobs that both of you can work. You will need two cars or trucks.

Just tell them up front what you need.

I know you said the equipment you carry is 3-6 lbs. How do you carry it? Backpack type or what? I am very interested in this after I sell my house (which in this market, who knows? It's in Henderson Nevada if anyone is interested!!) I wanted to know about the carry weight because although I can walk for as long as I need to, I have to limit what I carry because of a neck injury. Would that preclude me from getting a job?

Thanks Bob. We are hoping to work in a warmer area for the winter (we are usually in snow country), would there be openings in those areas or do the fulltime employees head there?
