Great money for the techs at Diablo, cause its union.

Also, there is no overhead and profit margin for a contract company.  $35 - $40 plus perdiem is a fantastic deal for us carnies, my house payment is in Michigan, $42 - $45 for our house tech brothers and sisters does nothing to buy a $800K house in Shell Beach.  Doesn't seem like such a great deal for them.  Great plant however, very capable group of people both house and contract.  A pleasure to work here for sure.

Great plant and good people make it a favorite. And the scenery is breathtaking. Can catch a whale tail every now and again from your office window.

I was out on the boat sampling ocean water and had three dolphins come up five feet away from me!  I had seen them out there before, but never that close... it was such an epic experience!

Can anyone tell me who (PG&E, or a contract company?) staffs the medical facility...and how to go about trying to apply for an RN (or other nursing-related) position for the 2008 SGRP?  Thanks!





I know, it's late to try to line up something like that...but I just found out I am going to be working down there...and would like to find my wife a good nursing job...

I don't think the medical facility brings in extra peops for the outages... but here is the head guy's number: 805-545-4441.  His name is Craig Gallagher.

I do have a friend that runs a place called Maxim Health and he has said that he can definitely find work for her.  His name is Jadd Martinez; he said to either call or send him an email:
805-937-2787

Jamartin@maxhealth.com

I thought you were working for Canberra?  Will you be here with them?

Thanks for the info, Evil!  :)

I thought you were working for Canberra? 

I have just proven (yet again) that 'permanent job' & 'UncaBuffalo' do not fit together in a sentence...so I gave myself early parole!  ;)

Should be a great reunion...I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and getting to work with you guys again!  :)

Craft is Day-Zimmer; SGT is doing the SGRP.  Granite Construction is also doing alot of building out here, too.  I'm sorry, but I have no idea who the contact peops for each company are...

Hey Bat Man,  who did you contact for work at Diablo Canyon? 

It is a "who you know" situation. You must have a reference from a returnee and the timing just right. I tripped ass over backwards into an opportunity there with the help of a dear friend. You need to check your network and see if you have a reference that could help you.

I'm new to nukeworker. I worked 3 outages in a row starting with the 1st U-2 outage at Diablo. Any old timers that were there? Just trying to hook up with old friends. Remember the Breakfast Club? Pat Persky almost crashed our plane on Catalina Island.

Yeah, I worked the 1st Unit 2 outage there (Mark Aller). Haven't been back there since. Should have kept going. Don't know why I stopped. Great plant! Going to this one though. Hope to see you there.

Patty is still house out here. Dawson now flies commercial jets (jet blue)... Moretti still flies, though the Breakfast Club isn't really around anymore  :(

Diablo Canyon Hires their own HP & Decon for the outage, and they have neer 100% returnee rate.  So getting in is next to impossable.
