So I was part of the hanford layoffs. I worked as a nuclear chemical operator. Basically doing deacon, Waste packaging, shipping, glovebox work, and for the last two months I was part of a Pu nitrate spill clean up. Tent work in a fhram suit with fresh air. Two entries a day grinding up concrete. My question is, I'm looking into doing some outages, and I'm not sure if i should be looking into a JR hpt or deacon. Also what are some companies i should be looking into. Any info would help a ton. Thanks!!!!!

OK so called Bartlett this morning. said the recruiter i need to talk to wasn't in the office today. How often should i call. I don't want to come across as annoying and burn any chances.

Either:
A) Daily
B) Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
C) Monday & Friday.

I would suggest "B", but any of the above is a good answer.  Just ask the recruiter when you should check back , and when they might know more.  It's the guy that calls the moment they need a guy that gets the job.

You just might have to wait until next fall to get an outage job.  This is a light fall/spring. Not as many jobs, so they are taking the folks that have done it before.

Use the links above, search the jobs posted, contact the companies registered here.

What is a Deaconner ?    Is it a very religious decon tech??

On the serious side it is a challenging time with the poor economy and a lot of former nuke workers having to make return visits to the wonderful world of outage life.  Keep a positive attitude and keep trying.

Don't forget to file for unemployment.

Thanks...Yeah i filed for unemployment on my last day. Today I received my third check. Its nice to have this free time to spend with my kids. But this is the first time I've been  without a job since i was 16. I'm finding it hard to adjust. I wake up and take my kids to school every morning. Then spend about 3 to 4 hours on the internet looking for work. I think I've reached the point where I'm not as concerned about the amount of money I make, but I'm more concerned about enjoying the work that I do. The last few months at Hanford I truly enjoyed my work. I found that I love doing Airline work. Almost to the point of obsession.lol.
Also once again thank you everyone on this forum for your posts and suggestions. You all have been great help.
