Wasco Electric Cooperative is seeking qualified candidates for the position(s) of a Journeyman Lineman located out of The Dalles, Oregon.

Applicants will work independently and collaboratively with other linemen out of the Maupin and Grass Valley areas. Job duties will consist of repairing distribution lines that have been taken down during storms; strong winds or heavy rain or fallen beaver trees, resulting in overtime.  Building new services due to residents wanting to build in the beautiful northwest, where a strong community is key or disconnecting members who don’t pay their bill or want to move from our community for one reason or another.  However, most of your time will be working to make the distribution system reliable by driving throughout our 5,000-mile service territory meeting our membership.

In addition to working with great people, you will also receive a great benefits package which includes, medical, dental, vision (we all need insurance), NRECA Retirement and Security Plan (R&S) (not many places have this great benefit at our multiplier, call us for details), and monthly contribution to the employee’s 401(k) compensation plans, you decide how much you put in, we match up to 4%.

In addition, hired applicants will receive a $5,000(cash) moving expense reimbursement upon employment, pretty much a bonus.
