I assume your applying for an apprentiship position? I don't know how local 9 works, but here in Michigan that would be what you were qualified for. I wish you the best of luck and wish I could give you more informative help. I'm sure that you will do fine. Be confident and review your schooling!! Good luck!!!
Dress for success. No low cut jeans with your drawers hanging out, etc. A minimum of business casual to a suit and tie. You'll be surprized at how slovenly some of the people dress for the interview. They will most likely judge you for the most part on your dress and demeanor.
No dropping "F" bombs even if they provoke you too. Be prepared to answer why you want to get in this field or the union. Shame you already dropped 20k for LT, if you get in, you get to do it all over again. Good luck!!! JMHO
Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!
If you are talking about Local 9 in New Jersey, there isn't much to worry about.They are a great group of people, very good union.
All of the reps have worked in a van sometime or other.
They are looking for help as the warm weather approaches.
They will give you a test that basically centers on the Phsycometric charts.
They are more concerned about your character and willingness towork
