Newbie Question about Completion Bonuses
« on: Jan 03, 2013, 02:30 »
Do all plants offer completion bonuses for a completed outage?  No matter what subcontractor you're working for?

You recruiter tells you if they have a bonus.  For example, San Onofre doesn't.  Most places only give bonuses to hp's.
Some bonuses are better then others.

Interesting question for a newbie, I have not completed an outage and I want a bonus. Maybe the bonus should be a percentage multiplier of the number of outages the worker has completed. (20 outages x .5% = 10% bonus). Better yet ( 100 outages x 1% = 100% bonus)!!!!!!

Many times completion bonuses are given because the outage can't staff OR they are incorporated into the payrate, which means you aren't really getting more money, just less money upfront.  Bonuses aren't always good.  They may just be a portion lopped off your hourly wage tied to other items you have little control over.  I'd rather have my full hourly wage now than a couple dollars an hour of it coming at a later date 2 companies see fit.

While I'm sure your response was meant "tongue in cheek", some utilities do compound their bonuses as you complete successive outages.  Exelon has done this in the past.  It's their way of ensuring their outages are manned with people who are already trained within their system.

An outage newbie perhaps, but I never said it was my FIRST outage   ;)
Just trying to figure out if I got spoiled at the place that I did finish and did get a bonus from, as now I get to play the field a bit more.

Hey Bernie, the best advice I can give you is to find a staffing company that has plenty of work and maintain a relationship with a recruiter. You may have to go to some difficult outages at first but it will pay off in the long term. Do a good job and keep submitting resumes for house positions, you are a good tech and you will succeed. We won't be hiring until late 2014. Good Luck.
