Description Journeyman or Utility Lineworker

Great Lakes Energy is looking for a journeyman or utility lineworker to work out of our Hart district professionally maintaining, constructing, and providing emergency restoration of electric distribution systems.

Who We Are

For over 85 years, we have powered rural communities across 26 counties in western and northern Michigan. We serve over 128,000 meters as the third-largest Michigan-based electric utility and the state's largest member-owned power company.

We prioritize enriching the lives of our community members. We not only provide electric service, but we also provide reliable and robust fiber technology through Truestream, a communication solutions subsidiary of Great Lakes Energy.

We have over 300 employees who are more than just colleagues - we're a close-knit family of diverse professionals united by a shared vision. Our collaborative environment encourages creativity, empowers growth, and fosters a sense of purpose in everything we do.

A Day in The Life of a Lineworker at GLE

Teamwork, collaboration, and professionalism are all expectations of the day-to-day lifestyle of GLE lineworkers. No two days are exactly the same. Power restoration, power line construction, maintenance and repair of existing power lines and emergency call-outs are just a few of the duties that could be waiting for you. We don't call off work for rain or snow days, so your schedule is set and reliable. Your home base consists of one primary show-up and a team of coworkers that work together to get the job done in the safest and most efficient way possible. Sometimes storm work within our expansive system will require assistance to other service areas, but for the most part, you get to end your night at home each day.

Who You Are

You are the kind of person who loves to be outside in the elements, no matter what the day looks like. You answer emergency calls because you have a deep sense of responsibility to your coworkers and the company you work for. You have a passion for linework and know how to work safely. Speaking of safety, it is your (and our) primary focus - we all want everyone to make it home safely at the end of the day. You have completed a DOL-certified apprenticeship training program, including 7000 hours of on-the-job training, and you are recognized as a utility or journeyman lineworker. You also have an unrestricted CDL with group A designation and air brake endorsement. We may be able to consider your application if you are a higher-step apprentice, so don't let the lineworker requirement deter you from applying.

What's in It for You?

You are valuable to us, and our benefits are here to show it. That's why we put employees first-your health, your family, and your development. We have a number of benefits, both traditional and progressive, to support you and your family through life's various stages. Here's just a taste of what we have to offer:
  • The Essentials We foot the bill for comprehensive health insurance benefits. You'll be hard-pressed to find better for you and your family...seriously!
  • Time to Spend Generous paid time off (PTO) puts you in the driver's seat for how you'll use your time.
  • Better Health Through Better Living We believe healthy employees are happy employees. We have a diverse wellness program that provides support and resources for financial and mental wellbeing, as well as reimbursement for wellness related products such as gym memberships, tennis shoes, and much more!
  • When Life Hands You Lemons GLE knows that sometimes life doesn't go as planned. We offer benefit plans to help soften the blow of the unexpected. Life insurance and short- and long-term disability insurance packages are paid for by GLE.
  • More Time with Your Baby New parents get time off to bond with their new bundle of joy. Parental leave benefits provide two weeks of family-friendly paid leave for moms and dads to bond and care for their growing families. Growing your family through adoption? You're awesome! We may be able to help you with related expenses up to $2,000.
  • Never Stop Learning We hire our employees for a reason, and we want to keep them around. We also want to be an industry leader, so we will train you while you work. If you want to further your career, education or job shadow a different position, we do that too.
  • Riding Off Into the Sunset Your future is important to us and we have the numbers to prove it. We have two retirement savings plans for eligible employees, with participation rates off the chart! A traditional pension and a 401k option? Yes please!
