HeavyD:
Our turnover rates for company employees isn't very high.

Turnover for the craft and trade for the constructor is around 30%ish, which I understand is fairly typical for a large-scale construction project of this size and magnitude.  These guys and gals follow the money.

Check our site, SCE&G (V.C. Summer) and Southern's for job postings.  For example, Unit 1 here has openings for Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance supervisors currently.  The Unit 1 postings are almost all due to folks retiring.

Best of luck.

I was speaking specifically about the construction side for contractors. I understand that the 30% turnover may be the norm for large long term construction projects, but I'd bet money it's the highest turnover rate anywhere for Nuclear right now. I also understand that if the companies are officially stating "around 30%" it's probably closer to 40%.


From the handful of people I know that are working or have worked at one of the two sites, they stated there was indeed a high turnover. People get burnt out on the long hours, they're "money'd up" and want some time off, it happens. My suggestion was for someone that had been out of it for a while that was looking for a way in, in July no less. I'm guessing his best bet is one of the two construction sites.


Perhaps you could share with him, and anyone else interested, what the current situation is as far as employer options? I know that Fluor is there and has jobs postings up for both sites. I'm not sure what else is out there.

HeavyD:
As for the constructor, we get to see their actual data as far as new hires and departures, so that 30% is fairly accurate.  It was a huge shock for folks around here because the station wasn't used to that sort of churn, even though their experiences were based solely on the station.  People working here that have worked in construction before were honestly surprised that it wasn't higher, given what that had seen in the past.

As far as what Fluor or any other contractor is looking for, I'm not sure where they post their openings.  Work is continuing out here.  They haven't sent people home or cut back on the schedule.   In the last 3 weeks we've set ring 3 of Unit 2's containment vessel and installed Unit 2's 2nd steam generator.  They need folks, and for those with past nuclear experience, they would probably grab them up quick.

I realize this response is a little light on details for those looking for job opportunities.  All I can say is search Fluor for V. C. Summer.  We also have openings in other parts of the company (non-nuclear); search SCE&G.
