Lineman Instructor Position


As a Journeyman Lineman with 10+ years experience, you've done your time working the field. You've answered every call out, you've been gone from your family for weeks at a time and you've done whatever was needed to get the lights back on because your community depends on you. You are part of a brotherhood that truly matters because without electricity our society does not function.


But, as every Journeyman Lineman knows, your dedication to your job comes with a price: you've missed your kids' games, you've missed your mother-in-law's 75th birthday party (and she and your wife will never let you forget it), you've missed Halloweens, Thanksgivings, Christmases (sometimes all three in a row), you've suffered from severe lack of sleep and you've gotten to know your fellow Linemen way more than you've ever wanted to.


What if we told you there was a way to remain part of the brotherhood and to truly be an integral part of the electric utility community without missing any holidays, any sleep or anybody's birthday parties? As a Lineman Training Instructor for Linemen Institute of the North East (L.I.N.E.) we truly do get the Line Life because we were right there with you. Founded by a 38-year Journeyman Lineman and his family, we have been in the trenches with you and we consciously crafted our Lineman Training Instructor position to reflect the needs as well as desires of our instructors and their families.


When you are part of Linemen Institute of the North East you . . .

• Have five weeks of PTO when you start with L.I.N.E. along with company paid holidays (and a couple of bonus days!)

• Work Monday through Thursday, 7 AM to 4:30 PM (three day weekends!)

• Have 100% company paid medical, dental and vision benefits for you and your family (plan choice is yours!)

• Have a 401(k) with a 3% match whether you participate or not
