War Eagle:
Hello All,
I'm a nuke-O considering retirement and I would like to talk to anyone with experience at Oconee or Vogtle. I'm interested in basic shift-work schedules, starting pay compared to the average, and any info on instant SRO programs they may offer.

Thanks,
Joe

I'm a Chief getting out next month.  I talked to the Operations recruiter at Oconee, Rick Robinson, a few weeks ago. He said they no longer have an instant SRO program.  He said all that he could offer was NLEO which starts at around $25/hr.  FPL and Progress are looking for instants.  FPL has classes starting soon at St. Lucie and Turkey Point.  Progress is looking for instants at Crystal River and Hartsville.  You can post your resume on their websites.  FPL's instant SRO position is posted under Unit Supervisor.  I'm not sure about Votgle.  I haven't seen any postings for that plant on Southern Company's webpage.  I don't think they do instant classes either.  Most plants do 12 hour shiftwork but you only work more than 4 days in a week if your in a shutdown.  Starting pay for instant SRO is around $90K.

TRUST me on this one, if you're an SRO you'll work plenty of weeks longer than 4 days even when you aren't shutdown.

War Eagle:
Thanks for the replies.  I'm 2.5 years away from retirement and highly desire a job in that area.  I'm not ready to talk with Duke, but what would be the best way to get a foot in the door at Oconee? A little about me; I'm a former RO who went officer and served as a submarine new construction engineer most recently.  My vision is to start in ops and work my way to management.

shayne:
I would also consider that if Operations is your long-term goal, do not feel too proud to start at a NLO level.  The money is good, but it will help with an operational background of commercial nuclear power plant. 
I imagine that with your previous RO experience it made you a better officer.  Also, in some cases any job opening that is offered outside the company is a good foot in the door.  Many of the better company jobs are filled from within.
