Compere Construction Substation Electrician in Coolidge, Arizona


We’d love to have you join our team as a Electrical Terminator I in Coolidge, Arizona.

Company Overview:

Compere is a full-service construction company that provides a wide range of construction and specialized services to the electric utility industry. The origin of the name Compere can be traced back to the early meaning of peer, partner, or associate. Being a Louisiana based company, we chose to adopt the traditional French spelling of Compere.

Our founders and staff, comprised of field engineers, safety managers, project/construction, and technical and construction professionals, have a long history of power system engineering and solutions delivery experience. This experience provides an opportunity to better serve our clients by strategically aligning their needs with a unique and value-added approach to the construction process. As a single contractor, Compere can handle both T&D line and substation construction, reducing errors and blame-shifting if different contractors handled those scopes.

Compere is an affiliate company of Ampirical. Working at Ampirical and Compere is a career, not just a job. Please enjoy this video ( about our culture.
