Barts Electric Careers

What is a Merit Shop?

Barts Electric is a merit shop. What that means is that we do not operate as a union or have union employees in our business. We have chosen to be a merit shop electrical contractor because we seek out employees with the highest skills, who take the most initiative, and perform at the highest levels. In return, we reward them with employment opportunities, advancement opportunities, and amazing benefits.

Since our inception, we have chosen to work with our employees one-on-one. We do not allow union interference. We respect their rights and offer competitive benefits and compensation. We make our hiring decisions based on the ability of an employee, not on their union or nonunion status. By operating our business in this way, we can provide both our employees and our clients with a higher quality experience at every level. Along with this philosophy we have developed some guidelines, which we have listed here. 

We offer a wider range of services and operate in a larger area than union electric contractors. This means that our craft workers have more work to choose from. We believe this consistency in work has an overall benefit for our workers that isn’t yet realized by unionized electrical contractors.

Our career electricians will typically share how rewarding their life has been as an electrician working in a merit shop. Some will even share about how they have developed a 7-figure retirement portfolio by working as an electrician for a merit shop like Barts Electric. 

Bart likes to regularly check in with our Red Hat apprentices, and he dropped into our in-house instruction center to talk about the very first step in the training process - parts identification.We mean it when we say that no experience or prior electrical knowledge is required to join our Electrical Apprenticeship program - only a positive attitude, outstanding work ethic, and a desire to have a rewarding career in the trades. If you come to us with those three things, Barts Electric will teach you the rest and make that career possible.Learn more and apply at #Electrician #Apprentice #Training #Instruction #KansasCity #KCJobs #NowHiring #TradeJobs #RedHats
