    Nope not what I was saying at all, I'm sure a lot of places still promote their older lineman into these slots and I am sure most of them are jam up hands, what I said was where I work all those guys are gone and the majority of the people who put in for the trouble truck are the people who can't make it on the crew, ie the last one to get his tools out or the one who always has something else to do when there is a bad pole to change and the list goes on and on, and that is no bullsh#t (QUOTE) I am sure it is not the same everywhere you go.

    Yeah OK I see what your sayin. I think it was like that years ago at my place too but with all the new duties of a T-man now the duds don't bid it anymore!

    Default Troublemen.

    Why so many of them wear a rainbow sticker on their hat? What's that mean?

    Must be because us, (and the rats of course), are the only ones working out in the rain to see the rainbows!

    Troubleman $34.47
    Journeyman $32.64
    Serviceman $32.64

    Troublemen work rotating 8 hour shifts, Journeymen work 8 hour set schedule shift.

    Servicemen anymore only exist in non-metro, they work both trouble and service work.

    I think the trouble guys got it made depending on if you like shift work...from what I understand they rarely get any callout pay.

    This is what I am trying to say! We are non-metro, we already have a service truck, there won't be rotating shifts for the troublemen position, they won't be asigned anything that isn't already covered by the existing serviceman position, but they are going to pay them more? And, sorry but I'll bet the ones that get the jobs will be the worthless linehands that don't get along with the crews. Squeeky wheel gets the grease?
