My first job was with......
« on: Jun 21, 2010, 06:20 »
Ok, It's later...

Bartlett has been a great employer, but they are not my universe.  They are one of 12 employers I have had, and account for only 37% of my employment over the last 20 years.  They have only given me one career advancement out of seven.  My first Decon job was with Westinghouse, my first Sr Decon job was with ARC, my first Jr RP job was with Bartlett, my first Sr RP Job was with GTS, my first RP Supervisor job was with SEC, my First Rad Engineer job was with SEC, and my first Safety job was with Shaw S&W.

I've been 'fired' twice while working for Bartlett, to include being placed on probation.

These are the facts.  You can believe them, or a fabricated fantasy.

I saw this post and thought it would be a great thread for the community.

My first Decon job was with PPM
My first SR. Decon job was with PSESI
My first JR. HP job was with PSESI
My first SR. HP job was with GTS
My first Lead Tech job was with RCS
My first ALARA job was with Bartlett
My first Shipper Job was with Denuke

Keep it going.
