Re: Looking for an apprenticship in an offroad sho
Not a bad offer, Jim. I was gonna say that he left out what he was willing to pay.
The only summer apprenticeships I have heard of are for GMI students. GMI finds sponsors for them and they work for that sponsor in the summer months. The student often winds up hired by that sponsor at end of schooling.
An employer has to put a lot of time and money into an apprentice. First the apprentice gets paid to watch the journeyman then the apprentice does the work while the journeyman watches. In both cases the journeyman could have done it faster and cheaper by himself. Yeah, the apprentice is sometimes help but most of the time he is just a needless expense for the employer. Hopefully, the employer gets back a trained worker at the end of the apprenticeship for his investment.
