    City of Los Angeles - LADWP Steam Plant Assistant

    UPDATE 11/28/2014 :
    The application for the test is now available. Last day to apply is 12/11/2014.

    http://agency.governmentjobs.com/lac...&jobid=1014298

    One year of high school chemistry, physics, or electronics is all that is needed to apply... Or one semester or quarter at the college level.

    More info about the job:

    https://docs.google.com/presentation...000&slide=id.p






    This is an entry level job working in a steam plant (power plant). Minimum requirement is a year of high school chemistry/physics/electronics (see the job bulletin for more details). There are 4 plants around LA: Long Beach, Wilmington, El Segundo, and Sun Valley. Full medical and dental for you and immediate family. Pension for retirement.

    City of Los Angeles Employment Opportunities

    This is where I started out five years ago, it can lead to operations, maintenance mechanic, or instrument tech. Operations works a rotating shift, 10 days on 4 days off (dayshift, then swing shift, then graveyards, then back to dayshift). Maintenance and Instrumentation are on straight day shifts (5 and 2 or a 9/80 schedule). You will work in operations for at least 2 years. After you pass you trainee test you can then apply to go into one of the other disciplines if you want (again after a minium of 2 years in operations).

    PDF job description here: http://labrel.ladwp.com/Database/82-85602.pdf

    Apply if you qualify, it will take a few months for the whole process from exam to hiring to run its course and the list (of those passing) will be good for at least a couple of years. This exam comes up maybe once every two or three years for a short window of time... don't miss it.

    If you have any questions, post them here and I'll try and answer them as best I can.

    I don't have direct experience with them, but I've been to user conferences and have been to the Houston facility. Aside from some engine problems, many of the issues involve the package and accessories. Make sure your company sends people to the Western Turbine Users conference in San Diego next spring (WTUI.com). Lots of good info there.

    I just saw this position yesterday. Looks like the "Apply" button won't show up until next week. I plan on applying just to see what happens.

    Re: City of Los Angeles - LADWP Steam Plant Assistant

    Just wondering if anyone here applied to this job? If so, did you get invited to take the test and how well do you feel you did on it? I applied and was able to take the test and feel I did pretty well. Just trying to get a general idea of how others did.
