John started as a meter reader and worked his way up to a Field Technician and Bucket Truck Operator. He is currently a union employee on a career track at AES. Here’s what he had to say about his time with Black Cap:

“Black cap helped to launch my career in the utility field and I am forever thankful.

Management staff and the rest of the team are very supportive. I’m happy to have worked there for so many years.”

John Shaw

“Black Cap Electric is a fantastic place to work!”

“Arick and Corrie at Black Cap Electric are some of the best in the business, and they create a team-like environment that makes work enjoyable to be a part of and fun.

I was able to grow as a professional and learn more about the processes of electrical metering equipment as well as supervision of a team while working there and was always supported and encouraged by leaders and coworkers alike.

There’s a lot to be said about incentives that were offered and the company’s commitment to electrical safety and processes.

Overall, Black Cap Electric is a great place to work that values work/life balance and encourages personal and professional growth.”
