Working on the front lines of response to our customers and communities, you will be behind every light switch, making contributions, big and small, to help Southern California thrive. You will come in every single day knowing the work you do has a positive impact and that you're making a huge difference.
Are you ready to take on the challenge to help us build the future?
Our Service Planner Development Program (SPDP) was designed with you in mind. As a Planner Trainee you will receive hands-on training to develop and prepare estimates, work orders, drawings, construction plans, and bills of materials used at the planning stage of new engineering and construction in small to medium-sized residential and commercial/industrial projects.
Guess what? There's more. As a trainee, you get six months paid training on a full-time basis.
