    Talking Hello From New York!!

    Hello everyone. I found this site on a google search so I thought I would join. I'm currently a utility locator contracted with Con Edison in the NYC area. Bronx to be more specific. Been with Premier Utility Services for 3 years and locating for 2 years. Looking forward to being part of the forum.

    Welcome aboard. Three years at the firm and locating for two? Was that achieved by sleeping 2 1/2 hours each workday?

    Hahah. I started out doing stray voltage in Manhattan. When went upstate for a month or 2. Then I got offered to get into locating and I been doing it ever since. It's not a bad gig. Doing it in the Bronx makes it more interesting tho. Hahaha

    I don't know how anyone locates in bad neighboorhoods. Pitbulls,guns,crackheads, and hookers. I couldn't do it.

    It's actually not as bad as you think. Maybe because that was the area I was trained in and I'm used to the Bronx. The way I see it, every place has it's ups and downs. It's funny tho when your marking out a job and a hooker approches you. LOL You learn to just ignore the area and just get your work done.
