What position did you interview for?

Duke normally leaves postings for NLO positions up permanently and conducts interviews when they want to run a class for them, that I am sure will also depend on the station on which you will interview for.

The best bet is to contact the HR Rep for the plant on which you will interview they can answer those questions with specific answers.

A kid that came into the plant from initial training last week told me there were almost 20,000 resume's submitted for the 20 positions of which he was one! Did you interview in December? Duke typically does not reveal any information about hiring until an official offer is made. So, all new hires will know about the same day and the other 19,000 plus will most likely hear nothing...except on Nukeworker! They normally have a long lead time from interview to offer to start date. I can also add that the station HR rep will not answer your specific questions, there is a corporate recruiter that is the sole contact and it's a don't call me I may call you type of thing. Sorry not much help, but that's pretty much the way they do it.

Interviews going on now. Class start date somewhere in early April. Offers are supposed to go out, I believe, in January.

This is correct, I was told that there were 15,000 plus applicants. 50 people were chossen for an interview for the 15 positions at each station. Offers will go out in February for the April Training Class. 8)

There were only 1200 Applicants and different number of NLO's needed for each of the 3 sites. (Oconee the most, then Mcguire, Catawba the least). Basic Operator Training will start in April and offers should START going out in JAN.

Sorry for correction, just couldn't sit there and see really exaggerated numbers.

Jwreezy1-

Do you happen to have any more information on this?  They flew me out to test and interview from Arizona in December and I'm quite anxious to find out what I can.  Thanks for your help; I deeply appreciate any advice you have to offer.

I put in for McGuire.  Do they send all their offers out at once or do they typically stagger them?

Good luck TJ. They flew me down from New York to interview for an NLO position in December and I am pretty anxious to hear back as well. I interviewed at Catawba. It's nice to hear that they finally started send offers out. Hopefully ours are on the way!

I don't know if they stagger the offers, but with McGuire inprocessing was scheduled for 2/14 so I would think the offers need to be out in the next week or so. I know BOT is scheduled for 4/11.

Definitely keeping my fingers crossed for it.  I think it's tradition that we start sweating bullets about this time.

I'll be doing the same.  I don't think any letters have gone out yet, lest we would have heard about it.  Apparently the names were submitted last week to the hiring managers at the sites.  Are you in touch with the HR people directly for Duke or Enterprise Staffing?

I have the phone # and email address of the Duke HR rep that contacted me for the interview.  I found a letter given to me when I took the POSS test that said not to contact HR and all applicants will be notified by Jan/Feb.  So not sure what to do, but will call by Thurs/Fri.


Sounds like you are about to fail your first test:  "Can the applicant follow instructions?"

It's a great way to weed out a few extra bodies, ain't it?? ;)

The HR reps are from a contracted staffing company anyway.  The idea there is to avoid flooding them with calls that will accomplish nothing; the decision lies solely with the hiring manager at the plant after the HR screeners get you through the door.  It wouldn't be harmful to call, just pointless.

You're new to this post-EAOS job hunting thing, so here's a word of advice: Yes, it CAN be harmful. Until you are on site first day, anything goes. Cheese off HR, and your paperwork can get "lost", runner-ups get offered your spot, etc. Seen it happen.

Your mileage may vary...

You can search any number of these boards and find a mixed bag of advice. Some will say not to hurt your chances by calling/writing and asking where they are in the hiring process and some say that you should do it because it shows initiative. Either way, that is a decision you have to make on your own. There are at least 3 of us here that are waiting to hear back from this company. A friend who works at Duke ran into one of the hiring managers and asked how it was going. He was told that the names were submitted just awaiting final approval. I think contacting the company would be moot at this point because they have already decided who they are going to hire. The guy I interviewed with told me that offers were expected to go out by the end of January but not to get nervous if I hadn't heard anything by then because sometimes it just takes a while. I think we just have to be a little patient at this point, even though we are all quite anxious.

I got the call today! They left a message saying they would like to extend an offer to me. I hope getting in touch with them again isn't too much of a challenge. I think you just have to catch the HR folks at the right time of day. Lugnuts and TJ I expect that you would be hearing something soon too. I'm pretty excited and hope to see you both in training. Good luck!

Congrats 3stix.  Hopefully the McGuire call-backs won't be too far behind.

Blue, we will be working at the same plant as well. I got the official letter this morning. Start date is 3/14. It's 6 weeks away but it feels like next week. It's going to be a hectic month and a half getting the house ready to sell and packing! It already feels overwhelming but I'm sure it will all be worth it in the long run.

ALL of the offers have gone out for the Mcguire plant.  This was confirmed by someone higher up in the plant.... Best of luck to you all! :)
