Lineman Jobs

Lineman Overview


Linemen work to build and maintain power and telephone lines. Those employed in this field are in charge of ensuring there is an uninterrupted flow of power to civilian centers, and they repair lines in the event of a storm or collapse. Linemen are also responsible for the maintenance and removal of power transformers and other electrical equipment. These professionals work outdoors, usually high in the air.

Lineman Educational Requirements


A high school diploma or GED is all that is required to become a Lineman. Previous experience is helpful but usually not required, and Linemen are given extensive on-the-job training once they are hired. Tolerance of heights is an absolute requirement as is attention to detail. A Lineman must ensure the equipment is well maintained for their own safety. The ability to work under pressure and to maintain a calm attitude when working in a dangerous environment is a must. Many Linemen work in pairs, so a good team attitude is beneficial.

Lineman Job Market


As the population grows, Linemen will be needed to construct and run power lines to new population centers. Due to the high pay and low entry requirements, competition for Linemen positions is intense. There are an estimated 114,500 Linemen currently employed in the United States with another 49,900 job openings. The number of employed Linemen is projected to grow by 9 percent by 2022. Similar positions include Line Installer jobs.

Lineman Salary


Working as a Lineman is a hazardous job that often requires traveling away from home. Because of this, the job is very lucrative, with an average hourly entry wage of around $29 an hour. The median pay is roughly $32 an hour, and more experienced Linemen make up to $43 an hour. The median annual salary is $64,000, with some companies paying Linemen up to $93,000. The standard pay is based upon employer and location although most companies will pay better than many other jobs.
