What electricians say about Buildforce

It’s amazing that I can rely on Buildforce to help me get back and forth between projects with various contractors. With temp agencies, it might have taken them a week or more to help me get working again. But you were able to get me on a new project instantly.

You’re the first company to pay serious attention to my safety before sending me out, asking me if I had a lock for lock out tag out. I’ll wear the Buildforce brand proudly!

How do I clock in?

Dropdown Arrow

Clocking with Buildforce is easy. Once on a project, navigate to the “My jobs” tab in the Buildforce mobile app. You’ll see a large yellow “Clock in” button, as well as other details about your project like location and supervisor contact information. If you accidentally clocked in or out at the wrong time, no worries - you can always adjust your time at the end of the day. At the end of the week, we will ask you to approve or edit your hours for the week and then share those with your supervisor.

Note: Only clock in once you are physically on the project. The Buildforce Mobile App also collects your location at clock-in and clock-out, and our team will flag clock-ins outside of the project area as potential fraudulent activity.

How long do projects last?

Dropdown Arrow

Project durations vary from a week up to six months or more. You will be able to view the project duration on any given project in the Buildforce Mobile App before accepting the project. You can also always reach out to a team member for additional information. 

How much will I get paid?

Dropdown Arrow

Your pay rate is a function of three main criteria: your experience in the trade, your performance during our skills assessment process, and your performance on the projects we place you on. Electricians who show up on time, work hard, communicate well with our team, and respect others tend to see a steady increase in their wages over time.

Note: Overtime is determined based on productivity. Electricians who show consistent excellence on projects will tend to be awarded overtime.

What happens after this project ends?

Dropdown Arrow

This is the power of working for Buildforce. Because we have hundreds of projects happening with dozens of contractors in your area at any given point in time, as soon as your project is complete we will share new project opportunities that match your skills and experience level. And you can always check in directly with a Buildforce team member by calling or texting us!
