somewhat agree, but "exactly" seems like a bad term.  I think I was treated worse and felt like I was forced to do more as house anyway (although it was as an operator and a chem tech).  I feel like I have more freedom to do things how I want to as a roady because I am not "attatched" to a certain nuke plant.  It actually makes me a better worker.  And, if things do go wrong, there is always the next plant since outage stays only last 4-6 weeks usually.

Hey Beer Court, should'nt there be a third pile????

How about those that actually show up on time, or consistently early?  The ones that actually put forth an effort in trying to get the outage or job done safely and ahead of schedule?  Those that actually can be trusted by both house techs and the management to complete the task at hand and be able to comply with the assorted procedures that seem to vary from plant to plant (even within the same company).

I have worked with a number of these individuals and hope to continue to do so.....  :D

As we all go through years and years in this great business, I think we see alot of good people in that 3rd pile. Unfortunately, they are not in the big barrel of desirables that is maintained for any certain company. This results in the same "core group" of people going to all the best assignments first. That group may consist of all the best staff, all the worst staff, or a mixture of the two. A high percentage of the time, you are going to be considered AFTER that group is resting comfortably in those positions. Unfortunately, you do all you can to help the last project you were on and it just isn't enough to make the grade, and the responsible, competent technician is left wondering why they didn't get called for one of those "cush" positions. This is a major reason why people opt for getting out of this industry, taking a long-term gig in the DOE, or just being content by never calling that company again. Many technicians have had to make that decision in the last 10 years and many have stated their happiness on getting away from this industry. It is the work we chose many years ago, or it chose us.....

The First Amendment works in strange ways, doesn't it?

That's "freedom of speech" for those of you who weren't coherent in school.

With Mr. Rennhack's medium that we use to express our opinion's, justice has prevailed. Obviously, someone erased the issue from the records after seeing the issue displayed. Gives ya' a warm feeling all over, huh Camella?.......

I think the 'customers' would have it that way too. All of them want their jobs (outages?) done on time, and that doesn't happen with people who aren't where they are supposed to be when they are supposed to be there; and most of them have performance bonuses for safety and rad protection goals (OSHA reportables, total man-rem, etc.), so I think they appreciate the tech who does a good and conscientious job. If you're in that group, you may want to talk to your Lead Tech or Supervisor and ask them to put in a word. A lot of the time, the SC has his/her own favorites, and that may or may not be the same list as the Utility supers would have.
Hey Mike, maybe we should have "NukeWorker Third Piler T-Shirts" to sell to the plants. ;)

Hey Camella, i hear ya.Speaking of the Northeast Test start a tread on the NEW FORMER NEU test. I have a feeling, this comes from experience, that there are going to be a lot of techs in for a surprise when they have to take the test again.Remo

Beercourt: We have worked together and I know you to be a results oriented "Third pile" kind of guy. Unfortunately; most recruiters at these offices have never been in the field and have no Idea what performance in the field actually means! It's a shame really...
