Just getting started
« on: Aug 04, 2009, 08:09 »
Hello :)

Our daughter is a welding inspector and worked an outage at a nuclear plant in CA last year.  She suggested that we might want to consider seeking work in these plants also.  She found her job through a temp agency, but since we're currently in FL, she was not able to provide a contact.

We are both retired and live in our motor home, so traveling to plants around the country would not be a problem, but we're not sure how to go about applying for entry level positions or even what positions might be available (our daughter suggested - fire watch, foreign material exclusion, QC or QA)?  We both have general office backgrounds but are willing to take on new types of work.

Any ideas on how we can get started, who we contact, etc - either here in FL (have heard that the Crystal River Plant might need some temp help) or anywhere else.

Thanks in advance,

I'd suggest calling the HR department at some plants and see who they get temporary support from.  You can probably start with the jobs portion of a company's website (should hopefully be able to find at least one phone number), and then keep asking who to talk to. 

Some plants have unionized workers, others don't.  Each company (or plant) may have different rules for how they bring in administrative temporary workers.

I'd also suggest thinking beyond outages if you're interested.  Often, temporary support is brought in for projects like corporate wide computer system upgrades, procedure re-write programs, performance improvement processes, etc.  These are often not directly tied to an outage, but utilize contract workers.

One company that I know supplies temp workers to the nuclear industry is Volt (
