Line Worker - Suffolk, Norfolk, Virginia Beach & Hampton

These are all entry level positions.

My area Midlothian, I started at 18.55 per hour, at 1 year in I hit 23.38.
Last year without me even topping out in pay until November, and only taking 65% of the overtime I was offered, I made just shy of $90,000,......it was more than 89k and less than 90k

You apply here

Also once you have applied, if they are interested in you, you will get a phone screening scheduled via email. After the phone screening, if they are still interested, you will be asked to take a C.A.S.T. (Construction and skills test)
It is a "Recommended or Not Recommended" evaluation. They will schedule it with you. It's kinda like the ASVAB test you take at recruiting centers for the military. It's timed, but it's more of a quality over quantity deal. Answer all the ones you 100% know the answers to first, then go back and try to score some more points on one's you can eliminate some of the wrong answers on.

One part of the test had like 40 questions and only 8 minutes to complete it. You won't be the only one to not finish that one lol. It's kinda a pressure type deal.

Now, if you get a "Recommended" test result, you then MAY be chosen for an interview. Bring your Resume, any letters of recommendation you may have, accomplishments, military service etc. BTW..They love Vets.

They will ask you questions like,
What does safety mean to you?
If given the chance to work extra hours for overtime pay, would you take it?

If you don't get past any one of these trials IE, phone screening, cast test, interview, don't worry.
Keep on trying, persistence is key with these folks.

And if you don't pass the cast test, you are allowed to take a re-test, last I checked.

You only need to Keep a 30% overtime percentage level to keep your job.

Also keep checking the dom.com link . Posts go up and come down every few days. For all different areas all over VA

You can pm me if you have any questions! Good luck!

Pretty much nailed it on the head, pretty decent company to work for. Been there for 12 years and Iíve made a great living in fairfax. Itís good for lots of people including those kids of yours that donít have a real plan coming out of high school but weíre very physical in sports. I did vocational tech prior to jumping into dom but Iíve seen everything from Sargent 1st class, landscaping business owners, truck drivers, service van runners, fast food workers all come through and top out as a graded employee

The only way I can see value in our 'off work' time is to go back to work, punch the clock on your time off...actually get paid for the time you would otherwise allot to handloading...that would be a value...but, you prolly wouldn't shoot as much.
