Fermi2,

I believe the "shut down" applied to the outage VY had this spring.

Nice area and good people at the plant. Though the Diem is a bit low for what you have to pay for lodging in the area.

Well there's still food stamps, you can't get enough time in to get unemployment.  Maybe get free govt. housing at the sites for the 12 day outages.

Just think if you can stack up 3 outages for the fall and 3 for the spring you can work 2 or maybe even 3 months a year. 

What a great idea they have to cut pay, that will help supply the outages with the techs they need.

I applied to 2 of those jobs at least a month ago and I check my status at the website it says.  050-route......What exactly does that mean?

PauleyRL,

To the best of my knowledge (and we're all still trying to figure out the Entergy way) that "050-route" code indicates that one has made the "first cut" and the resume' has been forwarded down to New Orleans or Jackson HR.  This would indicate that your qualifications meet the requisition.  The next step is to determine whom to interview.

They only stay listed for 2 weeks. If you missed the window, try the phone number in the posting, and maybe there is another way to get the resume in.

Hey man, didn't know you were still out there.  Hadn't been back since you had your heart attack.  Hope you're doing well.  Good to hear you guys are hiring, wish it would've happened years ago.

Don't know how Entergy is acting now, but I sent resume at Grand Gulf, Had phone discussion, went to interview while workingas contractor at ANO. THEN I got a 'form" postcard to my home address saying thanks for resume , but no positions available, Dated for the day before I actually did the interveiw. Never did figure that one out. Never got a thanks for interveiw, but.....had to talk to others to find out if the positions ever got filled.

OK folks, the hiring freeze seems to be over for now - Entergy just reopened postings for  Electricians, and RP Techs on their website www.entergy.com
I&C tech posting is supposed to be coming soon.

Good luck.

They also (like Pittsburgh) need a guide for furiners to learn the language. I can't tell you how many times I heard this exact sentence. " I prolly got suhnin I otta tell ya." And you don't ever say the t in Vermont. And words that end in a vowel all have an r added to the end and words that end in consonants often have the last consonant dropped. Just my left coast observations.

I keep seeing the power increase in the news.

What a PR nightmare; who would declare, "We are at 115% power and holding"? Do they not realize how this sounds to people that got their nuclear power information from Fonda (or else stayed at a Holiday Inn Express).

Why not declare what the new power limit is, then explain that they are at 83% of rated power, which was the old power limit.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
.....
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
