Non professional. Do not expect high quality commercial work from this company. They are unprepared and unorganized. Unable to maintain schedule. Always short on parts. They move slowly. It takes a long time for work to get done. Consistently having to redo work. I would not recommend Weckworth Electric Group.

Weckworth Electric Group
I've been doing electrical for eleven years. In that time I've worked for four different contractors but, weckworth takes the cake on worst contractor ever. First off I worked for them through gruss construction personnel (first time I ever worked for a staffing agency) but from the first minute I got to the job I was treated as an apprentice when I'm a certified electrician. Ted the foreman didn't like stepping away from his desk and didn't really have any plan or direction for anyone if they had materials to do the work it was in a connex that looked like it was rolled over a few times very unorganized just like the planning for the project. Then all the weckworth guys treated the guess guys like red headed step children. All in all from my experience these guys are a very unprofessional group that takes two days to get lights wired up right and on and reels people in with a good pay rate only to treat you like your stupid. Worst I've ever worked for.

Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
