I'm pretty sure if you go to www.tinypic.com and follow the directions you'd be able to post them here.

Hey Ya'll, what's the latest scuttlebutt about the goings on with the damaged fuel?  Are they recovering well?  How many heads have been chopped for this SNAFU?

Oconee is humming along at 100% They had a little lost generation time due to the incident but recovered well and recovered quickly. The root cause and corrective actions will take some time. BTW-The person that posted the pictures did not have permission and she may want to consider removing them!

Anyone on the board waiting to hear back from Duke for the NLO positions at Oconee?  Just wondering if there are others out there waiting to hear from them.  After speaking with one of their staffing folks today it sounds like they are getting close to sending out offers for the April hires/class.

I had a brain cramp when I made that last post.  I interviewed at Catawba in Oct and am waiting to hear from them. Sorry for the confusion.

Never Again.  I have been a long time Duke Energy contractor and for the most part have enjoyed my stay while working at Oconee but not anymore.  They are working the techs to death.  They are woefully understaffed and are working the dayshift techs like rented mules.  Catawba was equally understaffed but at least their house folks had a clue and prepped for the outage.  Lousy leadtechs who take care of the home boys and leave the traveling rent a techs in the building for 10 hours a day.  Next spring when McGuire gets done I'll either go home for a couple of weeks or find a fill in job until Catawba comes down for their 50 day outage.  Oconee, you lost me

Glad to see not much has changed at Oconee. I always thought there was good people there and it is a fun area. Low Pay and being lied to about potassium chromate kept me away after 2003.

I just wanted to put it out there that Oconee is not that bad of a place to work and the best part of being a contractor is, if it's that bad, pack up your crap and go some where that is better. Duke power has problems and they have alot of good points too. I have been in the Duke system for about 8 years and I have worked many different types of jobs during this time. I have worked for different contractors. Yes, sometimes we have had hard times staffing, but we are always looking for about a 100 techs and we normally get 90.  We are doing good if you look at the amount we are trying to get.  I have been at other plants that can't even staff 40 people. These Duke plants are good plants with good people who try to do the right thing but sometimes some people are never happy or they want to cry about anything that didn't go their way. What happened to the days where we came and did whatever they asked and didn't cry and whine about the job we are lucky to have? Sorry to unload but ...

I'd say you are living somewhere in the red circled region of the ladder of accountability.

Let me get this straight. You both entered a room you were told not to by RP. She got an alarm. You didn't.

How is this only her mistake and not yours?

Good observation, it think that describes what the ladder was trying to say.

Hover, I think the bottom most wrung in the ladder shouldn't be included, just the 2nd and 3rd.

At the top of the page is a tab labeled pictures, if you move your curser to the tab, a menu opens that has "Upload pictures" as the second option.  Follow the prompts, and upload them to the proper area i.e. find the Oconee section. -- Then you pictures will be where they belong, and can me shared in the forum easily.

You can either post a link to the pictures, or you can then embed them with the [ img ] your picture url [ / img ] tag.

I know this post is a year old, but the question needed to be answered.  Better late than never.

That is why I suggested they were living "somewhere in the region." ;D It is up to the reader to decide for themselves where they think they fall. :P
