Try going to https://www2.sce.com/pljb/edison/careers/applicant/index.jsp and searching for jobs in San Clemente.  I'd reapply for any jobs you are interested in, even if you've already sent in a resume.

Didn't think I did too good on POSS but I did get a note saying I had passed.  Thanks for the help.  From what I understand, this means that I will be scheduled for knowledge test soon.   



When is your test?

Paulers:

I recently was able to get thru to HR: they confirmed that I will be testing, but have not given date yet.  I will post when I find out.  As noted earlier, HR seems in chaos.  How is the implementation of the new schedule going?

It is Rough - especially for license guys.  Lots of 4 hour holdovers and in earlys - well over one hundred forces in the past month but that should taper off after the outage is over.  Negotiations are at a crawl - who knows what is next?  Many are talking of a strike!

Are there full time long term jobs at San Clemente other than what is listed on the Southern California Edison website?

You mean as far as in-house Edison employment, or long-term supplemental staffing?

p.s. it is a HIGH cost of living area if you aren't already there

Both, any long term work with benefits.  I own a home and currently work in the area.

I took testing for an apprentice position about 4yrs ago but did not get a response after taking the test.  I might not have done as well as I could have if I'd have studied more, or had some tutoring.  I'm older and my college education was many years ago.

If you are satisifed in your current work and it seems stable, I'd stay put for the time being. There are some things ongoing that might affect future staffing.

Work is stable and I am in good standing there.   

But in regards to my original question.  Are there other jobs that are not so technical that are listed elsewhere?  Or is the Edison International site the only place to find jobs? 

And when you say "things ongoing", would that be to my benefit for waiting?

I would also be willing to take a less technical job as to get a foot into Edison at SONGS.  Are the only long term jobs with benifits availiable at the site I post below?:

SONGS is going through major management changes in an effort to get back to INPO 1. They are looking for people that can institute change and change the organizations mindset. There has been a lot of hiring from outside plants with proven track records as INPO 1. One of the areas that needs the most work is work control groups and work coordination. I imagine the job would have a lot of pressure to whip the organization into shape quickly but probably with high rewards also.

Anyone know if the Maintenance Supervisors/Coordinators at SONGS have bonus targets as a percentage of their salary? Also, what is the relo package like for these personnel-if applicable.  Thanx ;D ;D ;D

Exempt and non-exempt non-union personnel have a results sharing program.  I'm not sure what the situation is for union personnel.

I see AO's in training start at $27.50hr and once fully qualified (12-18 mos) make about $35/hr, but cannot ascertain the changes in pay from when hired until your fully qualified from the contract. Anyone know the step increases between when hired and fully qualified--or do you just shoot up 7.50 hr all at once?

Dear Paulers, yeehaw, arkane, and all:

After passing POSS test way back in Sept 2008, I never was scheduled for knowledge test.  I called HR several times to inquire about my status and was told that I would be testing at some point.   It appears there have been changes in induction process: just recently, I was asked to re-apply thru the new on-line application process so that I could test.  I was scheduled, took test, and was interviewed yesterday- all in short order.  In order to try to better understand steam concepts, I got steam table programs for my PC as well as my Palm OS PDA.  I wonder if others use such programs, and if so: is there a favorite program/device (Palm, calculator, or "pocket PC") combination?

Glad to see that contract is settled and you are back to "experimental" schedule or similar.  Now, I'll have a chance to study the details.  Much thanks for input, Droshen...............

I remember getting an increase on the first of the year (3 months after hiring in) because it was the beginning of the year.  Then there was a step increase at 6 months.  Now that ANPEOs go thru Generic Fundamentals first (as a condition of employment they must pass) they receive a 9% NRC bonus - I believe upon Completion.  The big step is upon qualification - about $5 an hour.  Look up the UWUA 246 website - I think the info is on there somewhere.

I learned with the Mollier 28 years ago and can still draw it (half a**ed) from memory.  I doubt I could do that if I just downloaded a program to my PDA.  Oh wait, my PDA back then was a 3x5 notebook.  Still fits in my pocket, too.  Amazingly the battery has never died just when I need the data the most.  ;-)

San Onofre (SONGS) INPO rating
« Reply #174 on: Apr 25, 2009, 09:09 »
Anyone know what SONGS' current INPO rating is and if there are any major problems at the plant??  INPO rated them a "3" in 2006.

Thanx
