I wish ya'ld resource share with Summer again. I loved my time at Brunswick. I had heard a lot of horror stories about the place, but I loved it. The plant is clean and well cared for and the people are great. When Progress buys us out I want a transfer!!! Tell Carol hello.
Sometimes I look back on my life and think I could have had to work for a living. Thank God, I'm an HP.

Brunswick, was very, very good to me..........and this was when contractors couldn't sit in the little snack bar, when Phil Burns and "The Bruce" walked the halls. Lived in the area for 33 years, come visit and you'll want to stay........all the ocean you can handle.

I'm here at Brunswick, waiting for my badge. Hoping it's a good job. As a local the $2.- extra hr. for not getting per-diem is not the best compensation, but you pay the price for being home. "there's no place like home" Arrrghhh...Per-diem withdraws. They still need a few techs. too if anyone is interested. It's cold and windy, but that should change anytime now (I hope).

Summerdazed, I was looking forward to working your plant! :'( I've enjoyed working with all of the VC people, here, Robinson , and Shearon Harris. :D When I was a Bartlett tech, always tried to come there, but there was never any openings. That tells me 1 thing, and if ya'll aren't bright enough to figure that out, well I guess you can keep busy at BV, Perry, TMI, ect!  ::)What ya talking about takeover? You know something I don't? That would be most excellent! Lets see how far they run with that! ;) The only reason we aren't sharing this time is, your outage is the same time as Crystal River's, and we have to send quite a few techs to that one. (me included) Hell tell your boss man we still need you and want you. We just can't reciprocate this year, maybe next. I'll  tell Carol Hi, she's great to work with, isn't she? The girl can cook!Lots of fun too, and very organized!
Later,
JJ

Brunswick is good these days. They feed us good (too good) and the house techs are very friendly. Not bad not bad. The sun is actually out today and the weather is getting warmer. Finally. Hey John, keep the ice cream coming!

Came here 19 years ago. A lot of positive change for the better. Whole new attitude and enthusiasm among staff and workers. A lot of new facilities, makes this a top notch site to work at. Not to mention the area and the weather (70s) and the fishing and the sunbathers, need I go on....

This outage was known as the all you can eat/weed-eater outage. Just ask JJ or Criscoe.

I haven't been there in 15 years, from the posts it sounds like things have changed for the better. Might give it another try somtime.

I would have to be one hungry mother before I ever went back to Brunswick.  Picked up over 5 R in three outages, treated like a booger on the bottom of a chair all three times.  Seems like Brunswick goes in cycles.  Good for a putage or two the bad for an outage or two.  I guess I got the bad ones.  Either way there are alot better plants IMO and I can go to the beach anytime

I agree with you, OriginalRemball. If it goes in cycles, I was there during one long continuous downturn. The ocean was the only positve side except for the many hurricanes.I really can't see it improved. But if it has, then I'm glad for the people who remain there. I hope the down-cycle doesn't begin again.

Well the Brunswick "All You Can Eat " Outage is offically over. We met most of our goals, in spite of being a little short staffed, kind of an industry trend! :P I don't think that this is a reflection on the way we treat people here! I'd personally like to thank all of the contractors who helped us succeed! ;D I think most will agree that they were treated very well, in fact I never heard anyone say that they were treated unfairly. OriginalRemball, it seems that the last few times you were here was prior to the latest revision to 10CFR20 when you were allowed 3 REM/ Quarter. Guess what? I was getting 1 R / outage too, at every outage I went to! :-[ I worked the D/W this outage, none of the techs received 500 mr for the whole outage. I do agreee with you, that Duane Arnold was a good plant to work, almost as  good as here, not quite though. I'd like to see your list of plants that you consider better though, I probably worked at a few and will strongly disagreee with you! :o Anyway to end on a positive note, jovynomad, it was a pleasure working with you, we hope you'll return every year, we miss all of our contractors already! :'( Keep in touch!

Well here we go again! Getting ready for our outage, about a month away, so much to do! We always try to get evrything ready, kinda hard though! All the other crafts are already here, shielders scaffolders, we try to support all of the extra work and prepare our stuff at the same time without any extra support! It aint easy! :P Some things have changed since last outage most notably, Our RPM Steve Hamilton has resigned to go to work for Framatone. Steve was the best RPM I've ever worked for and there have been quite a few! We all wish him well, we'll miss him!We are supposed to fill 1 house tech slot prior to the outage, better hurry ! Supposed to have a few techs show up next week, they'll be stuck in training and security for a little while, Oh well! If anyone is comming and needs some help with housing or info and such, message me and I'll try to help. Last I checked there was still some ICE CREAMin the freezer! ;D

Just want to wish you guys a great outage this year. I won't be able to make it this time around because of the  schedule conflict and that the ice cream is nice but an extra $5/ hour is nicer.
Take good care of the D/W and say hi to Floyd and The Mayor.
