If you talk to him, ask him about his down hill skiing experiences with Tim and his other room mate at Cook last year.

Yeah!  Is that what they called it.  The "down hill" skiing experience?  Which roommate would that be the blond, brunnette, or red head (out of the bottle)? LOL  They did have fun with the "down hill" skiing experience. LOL

no one mentioned bruce cuevas so i will...  IRM,..   gave me more stuff than any other SC..    i was house at the time so i wasn't working for him and he wasn't the SC at the time (the stuff was all items he had rat-holed from when he was a coordinator) but it still made him my favorite SC...   besides, he had more magic tricks than anyone else i ever met...   (by the way, i still have and use the IRM sport bag he gave me)
If they wanted it done right, they'd do it different..

I'll second for Ron Nurney.He is the best!
He went over and above to help out the brazilian techs and welcome them ,that came to this country to work the outage.
I thank him for that.
Most site cords would not have bent over backwards to help these tech,but he did.
He didn't get any help from the upper HP management at Cooper.
Some management wanted them gone with out even meeting them.Because they were worried that their english may not be quite up to par.
When they flew 6k mile to help them out and do their outage at a plant that no one seems to want to go to,now I know why.

I worked with Ron Nurney as a fellow tech not yet as a site coordinator. He is a good person, friend, and technician. He will never look at you and lie to your face like others. Hey Ron Nurney, try to getting more Nuke plans in the future. Laurie

Today there are very few ‘real’ site coordinators left.  Barry, Ron and a few others are a dying breed.  Most today are nothing more than a glorified secretary with no real HP experience.  I’m on day 2 at VC Summer and was introduced to our Bartlett management team for the first time by the RPM during his outage expectation meeting at the end of the day.  This seems to be the trend Bartlett has been following for the past few years.

Not such a new concept, Bartlett had a Jr. tech for a Site Coordinator in the early 80s at Calvert. He came in dressed in a nice shirt and slacks then after taking care of business changed to jeans and a T-shirt to do a little decon. He was not so much a manager as an administrator. Seemed to work OK to me, but then access to the home office was very good back then.

At Crystal River in 1981 Charlie Pierce (owner/founder of Numanco) appointed a junior tech to be site coordinator with the reasoning of 'why should I waste a good senior tech to do administrative work?" The junior made a great site-coordinator (for one, he didn't think he was better than all the techs that worked for him). At the meeting prior to the outage (food and drinks in abundance) Charlie gave me one of the best compliments I ever got as a tech. He had me, Max Moon (at the time he was working on his PhD in Health Physics and was working as a tech) and DJ Richards stand up. Then he said "If you have any questions about your pay, perdiem or any other office issues, ask Jerry (the site coordinator). If you have a technical HP question ask one of these three guys standing up. If they can't answer your question, you don't need to know."

So, it not only is not a new concept, it is a very smart way of doing business.

Vinnie and I both have worked with Wayne Mandrell... Vinnie more than I but Wayne was ALWAYS caring about people who worked with him no problem  or situation  you might have was NEVER unimportant to him. Although we haven't seen THEM  In quite sometime he and Mandy (NO MATTER WHAT )  are still dear
 to us..   And as the question was is he  good to work for/with... yes.

 I think our favorite IS PHIL DUVALL from North Anna.. No matter if  u knew  him a long time or u just met him Phil ALWAYS treated like u were a part of his family. Even during non outage when we were home he would call just to see how u were and at NA  no matter what the situation was it was handled by Phil like it was the most important thing.  After Phils TRAGIC Death we returned once to NA and let me just say this... Although  some VP and some Bartlett  techs like these  Mike Bradley, Mike Young, Jessie Johnson, Raybo, A. Cooke,R Pace.. Were WONDERFUL to us IT
 was not the same  where Phil was concerned.... And we haven't been back.

I worked a lot of outages in the early 80's for IRM, DNI, Numanco and Bartlett. I was new in the business and I can't say that I spent too much time mentally grading the performance of the Site Coordinators, but the ones who stood out as "most memorable" - one for good reasons and one for bad, were Bernie Barker and Joe Worley.

 Anyways, my story is that after 24 years working long term for DOE contractors I "retired" and thought it would be interesting to go work an outage again. Bartlett was kind enough to hook me up with a spot at Fermi last Spring and with a lot of self re-orienting I think I managed to be a SHPT/SRCT/SRPT without humiliating myself too much.

One of the hundreds of little things that had changed (mostly for the worse in my opinion) since the "old days" was that the Site Coordinators were expected to work in the plant like any other tech and do whatever coordinating they needed to do as a secondary priority. I was assigned to the day shift dry well crew and one of the other members of this crew was Kirtland Young who also was the DZ Atlantic Site Coordinator. Anybody who has ever worked on a dry well crew knows that good techs relieve others on time or early, give brief but accurate turnover, and put equipment where it can be found. Kirtland is the kind of tech who does these things and it wasn't until the outage was half over before I found out that he was a Coordinator. The only time I ever saw him miss a turn in the well was once when he was out getting sandwiches for the whole department. I don't know who the best all time Coordinator was, but if I was trying to staff outages, I would sure have Kirtland on my speed dial.

faxes in the travel forms the same day or day after so we get our travel in a week. I truly don't care if I like them or not as long as I get my check on time, correct and in my hand.
Dave Hutton for a brief time did Big Rock (when still operating), met us in the parking lot with 2 checks (travel pay calculated from the higher of your home or last outage and advance Per Diem.) If you didn't need the advance Diem he simply put it into his pocket and returned it to the company. The travel pay was always the largest amount that could be gotten for you and was always correct (for me anyway). He also gave me a jar of his salsa..... I am to this day hooked on good salsa.
