most people end up staying in goodyear which is about a 45 minute drive to the plant. you might be able to find housing in tonopah 5 min to the plant or even buckeye about 30 min to plant. but if you want any shopping center etc you will end up in goodyear anyhow. buckeye does have a wally world but thats about it. can you mop floors ? hang lead blankets ? clean up contaminated tools ? then your probably in good shape.

good luck !

When you are tired of the glow, you will find there is dirt down below.

Sometimes it is difficult to remember that the solution to pollution is dilution, when you are removing the conduits for pollutes to dilute into the solutes.

Why, someone who removes cones, of course! How hard was that to figure out? Sheesh!  :P

If I had a degree in nuclear power plant operations I would go for an operations position, such as nuclear plant equipment operator by looking all over the USA and increase one's chances for the first job.

What a bunch of heathens; it is obviously southern slang for someone who performs the role of a deacon in a church..a "deconer".

Naaah, it's prolly just one of them there foreign soccer fanboys of Deco from Brazil, hence they are "Deco-ners"   :P
