Apprenticeships

Learn and Earn with Operations and Maintenance Apprentice Opportunities

Mennel’s Apprenticeship Program is ideal for high school or community college/tech school graduates who reside in or adjacent to the counties in which Mennel operates. The selected candidates will enter the program as summer help while completing the 90-day introductory period. 

On-the-job training and job shadowing responsibilities are key benefits of the program. Apprentices work full time at an assigned Mennel facility gaining real-world, practical experience. 

And the best part … Mennel pays the apprentice’s salary as well as schooling fees; however, the employee is required to pass all coursework with a letter grade of “C” or better. 

Operations Apprenticeship: Candidates will spend the first year in core curriculum classes with a focus on electrical and fundamentals of leadership. Year two will include participation in one of two industry short courses.

Maintenance Apprenticeship: Candidates will spend the first year in core curriculum classes with a focus on electrical and fundamentals of the maintenance department. Year two will include advanced electrical and welding courses.

Our program will allow you to gain experience along with a better understanding of a possible career path within our company.
