I've heard that rumor as well, but don't know what to think about it.  I've sent my resume out to a few companies.  Who/Where would you suggest I send it to? 
Kelly and SEC for K-25. That might work for some of the other projects as well. Just in case you might want to check out Duratek and Bechtel. Good luck, east Tenn is a great place to be isn't it Dave.... Mike

You hit it on the head.
This is a great place to work.
We may not have all the big hourly wages and the astronomic per diem, but its a weekly paycheck and its in the bank on Wednesday.

Personally, I love working/living in this area.  Afterall, I have lived here for the biggest part of my life.  I love working at Oak Ridge.  It's just that no one seems to know how long things will last.  It's impossible to plan any upcoming work when you don't know when you will be released from your current job. I don't want to walk out on my company ruining any future opportunities, but I don't want to pass up any opportunities either.  I guess the longer you are in the biz, the more accustomed to this lifestyle you become.

Sounds like K-33 is gonna be tore down.  K-31 may become industrial.  Word is that most of the surveys will have to be re-done due to poorly developed DQOs.

Lay Offs mostly,  They were planning on getting this done by 2008 with 1200 people, But decided to go slower with 600 people because of an accident and be done by 2009.

I see where a couple of companies are hiring new techs. Does this mean some money has been turned loose and work is ramping up again?

If you have a clearance, there are plenty of opportunities.
Wouldn't most people who already have a clearance be working somewhere?
Where do the people come from to take these jobs when they are hiring only cleared people?
Is there something I am missing here?
Or, do they just switch companies when the highest bidder posts a job?

I don't think $27/hr will out bid too many "L" cleared techs.
 I understand what you are saying... wouldn't it be economical for the DOE to allow clearances to stay active for like a year after you leave with just a quick update on your background check?  Oh what am I thinking... it's the government!

Dave, this may be off topic of k-25 but in response to your statement about clearances. i too wonder how theses positions are filled requiring an L or Q. i held a L at rocky flats and oak ridge(ETTP). i missed out on several opportunities because my clearance was inactive. i just wish there was a way to keep it for alittle longer after employment or a program to obtain it on your own. because it looks as though the trend is leaning towards you having have a clearance just to get considered for a position.

I would assume that if you took a poll of cleared RCT's, 90% of them are working.
The only way a company would get that cleared RCT to work for them would be by offering them a little extra hourly, diem, and incentive bennies.
Then, that RCT would take the company with more money. This business isn't any different now than it was in the 80's, when you are talking about taking the higher bidder for your services.
If the DOE would set up a program where you could pay a reasonable price to get and keep your clearance, they could recoup some of their losses when they do the investigations, and the "cleared RCT" population would rise significantly.

I don't ever see it happening, but it sounds good.

Sorry,

The company you work for requests the clearance, the day you leave, is the day they shut it down!!  Obviously any company who is requesting Actively Cleared Personel, wants to steal them from another company!  If they need them, they'll pay for them!  An current active "L" should bring you about $32.00 an hour, a "Q" should bring you about $36.00 an hour!   These numbers don't reflect Per Diem!

LOL, RG

All right who is paying "L"s $32/hour. Where do I sign up.

Sometimes I look back on my life and think I could have had to work for a living. Thank God, I'm an HP.

how they doin' hiring only cleared people down there? are they outbidding other DOE sites? Doesn't sound like it.
At some point the DOE projects are either going to have to declassify some of their areas, hire escorts or start processing new clearances.

Energy Solutions just had 2 HP slots posted on their careers section. Not cleared though.

I think we are gonna see these companies have the employee fill out the Q paperwork prior to starting with the company.
I just can't see how they will bring that many people in to do K-25, ORNL, Y-12, etc., and say "Cleared People Only".
Something will have to change, because the current method is not working for us or the companies.

I saw the postings for Health Physicists, didn't see any for RCT's.
I know this way is not working for us. That's why so many of us that were at Oak Ridge are now bouncing from outage to outage.
How much work is going on at K-25 and who has the action?
