I agree with Marssim across the Board! 

They accept supplimental staff based on what they receive, not what they perceive!

I'll add my second (third?) to what Marssim said.

I was treated very well there and enjoyed the people and the area. Vince, the guy I worked for truly appreciated me for the help and let me know. I wanted to go back, but other (higher paying) opportunities arose that made me change my mind. I would do another outage there in a heartbeat.

Up until yesterday I was saying I'd return to TMI in a heartbeat.  Most of the in-house people are nice to work with and although it is owned by Exelon, it's much better than Peach Bottom.  Heck, hell is better than Peach.  However, at the onset of the current TMI outage we were promised 7 -12s in a meeting just last week by the RPM himself, seeing that it's only a 20 and 1/2 days outage.  Well, honesty isn't everyone's policy, especially at TMI.  As of last night, Bartlett employees are being forced to 6 -12s -with the exception of those few working for Reactor Services and on the Turbine deck.  Needless to say, the rest of us are furious and have vowed never to work another outage here.  I can't afford to and I certainly can't trust them to keep their word.  I'm just not willing to take the risk of this happening again.  My advice is to stay as far away from TMI as possible.  In fact, avoid Exelon plants altogether.

Vince is a class act,...

If we are talking about the same Vince T. then I concur. Awesome guy, and also Rock, and Steven (Chemistry).

Maybe I will be seeing them again, now that I am a Limerick guy.

In an outage far far away.

23 Years to be exact.

I agree with the above average rating.  The house people even give outage workers temp membership cards to the local VFW, who open early in the morning to feed and water the outage workers.  -- THAT is acceptance.

The RP department runs a tight ship (in a good way).  They are all knowledgeable, experienced, open minded, and helpful.  I would return.

Maybe you can get a job a burger king on you day off to make up the difference.
You can't make it on 72 hr verses 84's ,thats just sorry! Usually they force you to work 84's
Maybe for the week you'll net $100-$150 more after taxes,fica,401k,medicare come on.
Try working a 40 hour week like most in the working world do and make it.
I think you should dump your financial advisor and get a new one,because the one you got really sux!
It never fails to amaze me how some people have been doing this for 25 years and are crying more mouth and im broke as the day they started,Oh yeah well I got bills,like no else does.
Sorry all I just had to vent.

Ps: If they did promise you 84's to get you there and changed it that's bs  Maybe a blue flu?

I gotta agree with RB, with a capital D-I-T-T-O!!!! Stop yer whining!!  :'(

Been on the 70 hour a week roster making 40 hour pay, lived just fine,.... with a family.
72s won't hurt a bit. if it does, then your living above your means or you can't budget.

Just left Peach working all the hours we could take/handle, Exelon has no problem handing out hours.  If you're working 72, chances are that was the plan, more than that was simply in question and got shot down, big deal.... suck it up, toughen up, then change your screen name ........'silky',

in a nut shell, deal with it and move on, or get therapy.  Just don't come on here whining throwing your anti(whatever plant's name goes here) propaganda around 'cuz you got your wittle feelwings hurt.  We don't wanna here it!

NOW!!!! Have a nice day...... >:(

The Drive.  The VFW.  The tight RP program.  The nice people.

Thanks for the head's-up.  Usually don't pay attention to the rules, they tend to lean towards coddling the weak/soft and in doing so persecuting those that speak their mind, no matter how brutal.

Reality.... I had to take the shot, it's like feeding Bambi an apple and clubbin' 'im over the head.  ;D

Anybody have any inside dish on the fresh water spring they tapped during the CTMT Sump Mod install?

Rumor is while drilling a hilti bolt in the bottom of the CTMT Sump a 4' gyser sprouted up through the hole. (Design Basis Impact? FSAR impact? Integrity Impact? - These are large issues - nothing Fermanite can solve with their magic goo.)

Bob McDonald is as good as they get.  As a matter of fact the entire house gang is all you could ever ask for.

Exelon is Exelon and from that standpoint this outage was a bigger than usual disaster, but on the HP end once again not a single complaint.

I was at TMI with Bartlett for that outage, while I didn't have the best experience, it was not the house personnel or the Bartlett personnel onsite that I blame for this.  Dropping to the 6-12 schedule didn't last very long, in fact two days after they announced it and we got the schedule arranged to coordinate days off most of the techs in my area were approached and told that the day off was optional do to the delays that we were having.  About half the techs took the day off gladly.

I happened to be patrolling through there looking at some lead packages when the workers yelled they had a leak. They were looking for RP and I got spotted with an RO2 in my hand. NABBED!!

I believe your 4' geyser is a bit stretched. It was a small leak of water entering the sump area. It was not contaminated and it was believed to be condensation that was trapped between containment sump and structural walls. Thats all I got.

The Containment sump sits in a million foot concrete footing so how exactly would a Fresh Water Spring get to it?

Does anyone have any info on places to stay near TMI?  How about campgrounds?  I am hoping to go here in the fall.  It sounds like a good place to work from all your comments.  Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

Who has got the scoop on the Craft contract for the SGRP?

A name, a number, a website, anything would help.

I am trying to help some people move that way toward sustained employment.
