    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Hydro One full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay but the majority of it will be spent on travelling across province living in hotels, air bnbs etc and never having a stable living situation

    Cons

    Poorly treated as a worker, majority of electricians here could not go home and wire their own house because you do not earn actual electrical experience. Even as an electrician you are just a labourer. As a journeyman at hydro you will be declined career opportunities at other companies as hydro has such a bad reputation and they know they will have to teach you to actually be an electrician. The entire company is cliques and you will only work close to home if you become buddy buddy with management otherwise expect to be sent from one end of Ontario to the other for your career. (Usually upwards of 4-12 hours away from home) and your work location can change on a weekly basis so be prepared to sleep in your vehicle/motels and move constantly.
