Apprentice Payday - When and How

Hourly Pay for time spent on site:

  • First Semester Apprentices - $8/hr

  • Returning Apprentices - $9/hr

  • Crew Leaders - $10/hr  

Pay does not include transportation time.

Timecards: 

Timecards must be submitted through the uCCNOLA app every day when you arrive on site and when you leave, so that paychecks are accurate and can be distributed on time.

Perfect Attendance (present and on-time): 

Apprentices with perfect attendance will earn a $50 bonus for that month’s pay period.

Paychecks: 

Paychecks are distributed in person or Direct Deposit on the 7th of each month or the first day we meet after the 7th. Regular attendance helps make sure Apprentices get paid on time!
