Apprenticeship

WHAT IS A GLAZIER, and how does the Apprenticeship work?

A Glazier is a craftsman or woman that cuts, fabricates and installs various materials associated with glass systems in commercial buildings and residences. With the scope of work being so extensive and broad, the glazier must know and be proficient in many areas and with many different products. This is why the apprenticeship program is so important.

You must have : High School diploma or GED, reliable transportation, be able to pass a drug test, no fear of working at heights and be self-motivated and team orientated

The first step to a great career is to apply. We accept applications both online and in person from 8 to 3:30 Monday thru Friday, at 5916 Wilson avenue. An apprentice after applying, will be tested and interviewed and if selected , will be given a probationary position in the union (6 months). The apprentice will then be informed of their home shop to start their 4 year apprenticeship. 

The starting pay will be 50% of the current journeyman pay scale of wages and benefits. As a member of Glaziers Local 513, you will have to join the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades of which we are a charter Allied trade.

You will be required to complete 842.5 field hours and 72 training hours every 6 months to advance to the next level which also includes a 5% higher rate. Example: After the first year (50%) the apprentice will graduate to 55% pay and every 6 months thereafter go up in 5% increments. 

We currently do all of our training in our 4800 square foot training facility located at 5916 Wilson Ave. We train you in blueprint reading, welding, glass cutting, sealants, door hardware, curtainwall, storefront, hoisting and rigging, crane signaling and OHSA 30. You will be proficient in all of these areas once you complete your apprenticeship. We have been training highly skilled, safety conscious glaziers since 1899. 

We accept applications in person from 8 til 3:30 at 5916 Wilson avenue, St Louis Mo, 63110 and the online application is under the apprenticeship page heading.
