Greetings,

I have a resume (through the Entergy Web site) for: Sr Health Physicist (Nuc)  #Grand Gulf Nuclear Station  (Job# 110346), with a status of "Hiring Manager Review" for almost 2 months now.  Even with the holidays, seems like a long time (even for entergy corporate :D).  Anyone in the area know a status for the job (e.g. filled, pulled, etc)?  Asking here cause the Entergy eRecruit web is NOT very informative.  Thanks in advance

Grand Gulf Has misjudged this EPU outage so bad, They are keeping techs going to Beaver and Palisades until 4/2  Report dates are 4/4. Thats a max of 30 hours to drive 900 miles in two days plus sleep. :'(

The old plantation mentality is back!

This is an Atlantic job. Starting to act like Bartlett

It doesn't sound like an Atlantic problem unless they are saying you have to stay until the 4th or you won't get - whatever!
It also doesn't sound like plantation mentality unless GG is saying, 'we will keep you from getting any other job unless you stay until the 4th.

What a garbage plant! EPU is horribly understaffed. The in-processing at the beginning happened like they just heard about the outage a week prior. Industrial safety is such an afterthought as to be a near non-factor. Dropped items have been a multiple-times-a-day occurrence, some highlights being a 2" square piece of iron falling 20'+ to hit someone on the hardhat and a 3' crowbar falling 20'+ and missing someone by a foot. Admittedly, the dropped items have decreased over time as dropped item prevention actually began to be enforced. No safety stand down ever occurred. Walking around the plant it is clear that there is little to no concern for material upkeep of the facility. Rooms flooded with groundwater, poor lighting everywhere, degraded insulation, rickety scaffolding inspected annually, and filthy floors with debris and dirt everywhere (before the outage started) make it clear that no cost is left uncut when it comes to managing this plant. Pulling apart valves invariably requires soaking with thread lubricant due to excessive rust from poorly maintained leaking valves. This place is a disaster waiting to happen.

This plant is number last on my list of places to return.

Hmm.. I know of stand downs, stand up, 1 pm safety checks... so you are not quite accurate.  Also not accurate about little or no concern for material upkeep  But we can agree to disagree... and you do not hit 500 plus days online not caring about plant condition either....

EPU horribly staffed?  Still have more techs before the outage began than most plants have for their outages, and much better than the Lab side.  As far as the debris and dirt before the outage began, this plant started putting in the new systems long before the outage started, and probably long before you came into in processing.  Speaking of which, when you have ~4500 people for an outage, and a short time to do it, the individual isn't going to get individual attention every moment of the day.  I do agree with the problem of dropped items, but corrections have been made, and the problem, although still present, has dramatically decreased.  It says something for a plant with this many people working for this long to have so few injuries.  I can say that the lighting is a challenge, but we have changed enough light bulbs to fill a B-25 and then some, not to mention the total light change out on the refuel floor.  And lastly, what plant doesn't have water valves that have rust on them from the fact that they are water valves, and some of them haven't been seen since the last shutdown.

Thank you.  I enjoyed my trip to GGN.  I was especially impressed with the site safety committee meeting.

No problem.  I was only in town for a day and a half.  I figured it was a long shot.  Does your wife plan to get a house closer to work, or closer to town?   Most people prefer to be close to town, but I'm not a morning person, and I prefer to be close to work.

Well I have already broken one of my cardinal rules with a greater than 10 mile drive to work because I drive from Vicksburg. She is looking in Vicksburg and Clinton. Next time you are here I vote for eating at Rustys on the Mississippi River

I ate at Rusty's while I was there. It was amazing.  It was the first time I have had dill pickled okra or dill pickled string beans.  And the Fillet was out of this world.

Is there anybody at GGNS that can contact me?  Would love to chat with someone from the old stomping grounds.
