Construction workers work various schedules and may need to be available during the day, at night and on the weekend.

If you’ve ever lost power before, you know how debilitating it can be to your day. You know the feeling of relief when help finally arrives to fix the issue. How would you like to be the person who fixes the utilities people rely on every day? The utilities industry includes companies that generate, transmit, and distribute electrical power and natural gas, treat and distribute fresh water, and treat wastewater. In the utilities industry, you will maintain and fix systems that people use and rely on every day. The simple act of walking into a restroom, turning on the light, and washing your hands uses the products of perhaps four different utilities. Electricity, gas, and water are used continuously throughout each day. As a result, it’s common to work split, weekend, and night shifts in the utility industry. Some employees may need to work overtime to accommodate peaks in demand and to repair damage caused by weather and accidents, so you should have the ability to work a flexible schedule.
