There isn't a whole lot of "major" work going on here right now. We are doing Core Drilling and Well Monitoring around the "campus" area. We will be cleaning out wells in the world-renowned "Cesium Garden" later on this spring. The Kelly technicians work for SEC supervisors. There are Lead RCT and Supervisor opportunities popping up weekly, so there is a chance to move up. We do routines in the old Isotope Production Facilities. Special filter change jobs come up every so often. Other than that, we are chugging and plugging and trying to dry the sweat off our brows, when possible.

Peace Out, all my Rad Brothers and Sisters :-*

Chances are if you sign on with Kelly right now you will end up in Melton Valley. Not a bad place to be, but the hours are long and the work is boring. We have complained so much that Kelly is now saying the hours could be 32+ hours of OT. This project is going to 7 days in the spring. I don't know how they are going to work that kind of schedule.
Sometimes I look back on my life and think I could have had to work for a living. Thank God, I'm an HP.

Thanks for all the insight, Summerdazed.  Much obliged.  Is the 32 hours of overtime on a per week basis?  Do you not get completely bored with the job?  I am now at a R & D lab and it's never boring.  But, I want to go back to the SE.

Merlin, Actually right now I'm working 45-50 hours per week. We have been told that the work will increase to 60 -72 hours this spring. If you want the money it is great. East TN is a great place to live and there is no state income tax. Boring as hell. Today I have spent hours watching two laborers deconning a track hoe while it is snowing!!!! There is a lot of interesting things here at ORNL, but I just have not worked my way into a better job.

Summerdazed,  do you know if those 20-30 hours of OT are going to be a requirement?  Or do you have the option of working whatever OT you want?  Do any of these long term positions lead to direct hire?

They say all OT is optional, but understand if you don't pull your share your co-workers will not be happy. I work as little OT as I can. My supervisor has been good to me in that respect. No, these jobs wil not lead to a permanent position. You do have to ability to find permanent work once you are here or before you get here. Check this site for employers in the Oak Ridge area. There are a few companies that don't list here, such as Duratek and Pangea.

Wednesday, they announced the lay off of 10 people from Melton Valley and 4 people from K-25. The "word on the street" is that there will be another layoff in May or June. Someone today said there is a rumor that there will be only 10 technicians at ORNL in June. Far fetched? Maybe and maybe not. The bottom line is that there are layoffs in the clouds and the rain is starting to fall. This isn't the best time to call SEC or Kelly for a HP job in Oak Ridge, but it never hurts to try.

Just keeping it real, dawgs....

Halflifer,
           The reason I'm still smiling is because I still get something in my checking account every Wednesday. Watch for a new picture, because you never know when I'll be joining you on that great nuclear road... ::) You never know when the "white slip" is coming your way. The separation notice that the laid-off technicians received is white, and no longer pink. My, how times change, huh? We are all just looking for an open seat on the Titanic right now.

Bartlett just called me and told me they need L-cleared techs in KY.  So if people in Oak Ridge are losing their jobs, and don't mind a little traveling, there are jobs out there.

Hey Dave,

    I would have to discount that rumor seeing that we have 9 of them at MSRE and there is little chance of escaping the MiSERy in the next year.

I think what needs to be defined is this: My undisclosed source (i.e. rumor-monger) did not define "ORNL". That could mean just Melton Valley techs. That could mean anybody. Who knows right now? I can say with a good amount of confidence that there will be 15-20 laid off in May-June timeframe. That seems to be the consensus around these parts. One source said that there would be 36 more layoffs by the end of the year. At this point, you have to wait until you get the tap on the shoulder, or get a phone number followed by 911 on your pager.... >:(

You get direct deposit right away, and you don't have to work 1000 hours to be eligible. The area is great. You have loads of things to do in Knoxville. The weather is great. You have numerous contractors involved at the site, so if you have a layoff, you can talk to other companies about staying there. It is almost a retirement home for HP's.

Dave,

Man you missed a good hit!  They managed to turn X-10 into a ghost town, but most of the techs slid over to some cushy jobs.  I heard most we're promoted to specialist or leads, k-25, scrap yard, ect.  I heard a couple managed to edge their way into the TRU project.  Probably just rumor!

From most of the people I have talked to that work there now, the common emotion is fear.
Whether its BJC or SEC or whoever, X-10 seems to be waiting on this big bundle of money that sits at the end of the current administration's rainbow.
Whether it ever shows up is a guess. Like you said DecommMan, other critical programs.......fill in your own blanks here.

I'm sorry to hear that the feds are still messing with the X-10 budget. I was a health physicist on Melton Valley D&D project when they pulled $16 million out of our budget in 2005. One day management threw a party because things were moving along great, the next day a bunch of us were laid off.  The office trailer complex that was built for us was indeed turned into a ghost town. I believe it was on the north side of Melton Valley Road not far from the HFIR turn off. I had relocated to the area less than 3 months earlier.

I still have nothing to do with that employer. DOE projects leave me squeemish.

Well, we know ORNL.gov has posted 40 jobs since April 18th.
And Energy Solutions has posted 6 jobs in the last 14 days.
Is this the beginning of a rebirth in the Oak Ridge job market, or just timing?

The jobs have all been "L or Q cleared only"......and while there have been jobs posted, did these jobs actually exist or were the companies just building a resume base to support proposals that may or may not ever come to fuition? Does anybody actually know anyone whose started work there? Was it a new project or were they backfilling?

Dave I should be in town, I'll see you there. Starship and The Oakridge Boys will be doing concerts that weekend in conjunction with the Secret City festival. Saturday 1000 to 1200 my SubVets group will be doing a "Tolling of the Boats Ceremony" at the Freindship bell provided you have recovered from Friday come on by.

You don't get Karma like this by joking...   :P

Rennhack knows I love him.  He just wishes we shared an office with 15 other people again - such lovely conditions.  It NEVER smelled bad in there... :'(

Glad he was useful to you Dave.  At least he brought food.

OMG!
Someone even let Roadhard out of his cage!  I told them that cage would never hold you... :P

It's funny how we can laugh about that job now; 3 years ago, I would not have been able to do so.

Good to hear from you boys.  Maybe we should create a thread for an online reunion...

What's the deal?? I'm seeing signs around ORNL/Y-12 about unionizing HP/RCTs. Who does this apply to and what is the beef. Just curious.
Sometimes I look back on my life and think I could have had to work for a living. Thank God, I'm an HP.

Dave, I'll try to make it to say goodby to everyone, as I'm moving to Michigan.  So you can add that to the list!

I can add one to that, after four years I finally got my Q Clarence. It must have been your interview with the investigators.  ;)

I will see you there, I could use a couple of drinks, all three kids with spouses, seven grand kids and two nephews have been visiting all week. Glad to see 'em come and glad to see 'em go.

Nice job, Marlin.
I told the FBI that you were never a person of interest, and your bomb-making skills weren't very good.
They said "Aw, Hell, we'll give him a Q"
Congratulations!
