Yes, Mike, I know, I know........

So, what is the scoop on the mass layoff rumor at Melton Valley, which happens to be part of X-10?

Did it already happen, and how many?

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!

Like everything in "Federal budgets land" these days - cuts to support other critical programs.  I've seen it happen many times in the last several years now.

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.

Did we ever find the stuff we went looking for over there?
They were supposed to bring it back to X-10 and store it in a warehouse..... :-X
Word is that Halliburton will be hiring soon, and this is a no-bid contract.... :-X

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?

Who will you be working for? Is this part of a large-scale hire or just a couple? Let us know if it actually happens.

For all of you who would like to come out and see the old crew, we are having a get-together at Bailey's. It is this Friday at 7:00 PM. I have seating set up under my name. There should be around 20 of us there. Come enjoy the company of Mike Rennhack and myself. We will be there as soon as we ace our shipping class.

We actually had over 200 resumes for our jobs that was posted about a month and a half ago here at ORNL.  from what I have been told they are looking to hire the 4 technicians here sometime soon or just at the start of fiscal year.  They also posted 2 more CSD tech posions I was told.

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.

I want to thank everyone who showed up at the party at Bailey's on Friday night. We had about 40 people show up and reminisce about the old days.

The highlight of my week in Tennessee was sitting next to Rennhack in the shipping class.
Good to see ya again, Mike.
