Learn How to Become an Entergy Arkansas Hero at Job Fair
ASU-Three Rivers will host Wednesday, Thursday from 6-8 p.m.

How does a person become one of these heroes? They can start by attending a job fair in Malvern on Sept. 8 and 9.
Entergy Arkansas representatives will be on hand to discuss career opportunities at the Malvern Job Fair at ASU-Three Rivers CAST Building at 829 MLK Blvd. in Malvern 6-8 p.m. both evenings.
Everyday functions for lineworkers – which includes men and women – include installing and maintaining electrical components such as poles, transformers and power lines.
Entergy Arkansas hires lineworker apprentices right out of high school and beyond and pays them while they train and complete the four-year apprenticeship. Salaries for first-year apprentices average $50,000 a year, with the potential for six-figure earnings as they progress in their careers.
A new lineworker annual salary is $40,000 until bootcamp – a 12-week introduction to the fundamentals of line work and safety as a core value – is completed. Sometimes that happens in the first couple months and sometimes it continues into the next year, depending on when the new employee begins work and finishes bootcamp.
