Unit 3 actually shut down early 1/27. DJM75 is correct about battery testing. An 18 month ST revealed diminished capacity (although still >100%), turning it into a 12 month ST. Twelve months is up in late April, but with the underabundance of regulatory margin the plant has at the moment, the decision was made to do it now. It's also warmer in the desert in late April than it is in late January..... ;)

If you had 2 days to kill while at Palo Verde for an interview what would you do?

Thanks

Go to Vegas for a week, and forget the interview.
No,really.  I'd go see Camelback Mountain and catch a Diamondbacks game.  The stadium is way cool.  You can watch the game from the TGI Friday's in Left Field, or the Diamond Club in Right Field.  The food is fantastic and the bar is well stocked.  Not the best view of the game though.  Go early for a night game and have a few brews at Sliders.  It's right near the ticket windows on the walkway outside the stadium.  The bartenders are worth the visit.
Drive up north to Winslow and stand on a corner.  You can even buy that t shirt.

...or visit Alice Cooper'stown for those few brews before the game; it's a 3 minute walk from there to the stadium.

Yes having a degreee and 4 years experience will give you a good chance here.  They are starting people off at about $4300/month then you get 2 raises as you get qualified you end up being paid aroun $32-33/hr once fully qualified.  They are talking about hiring those with degrees at a little higer rate to start but I believe once qualified the new people will all be at the same level.  Good Luck

Ya there is a place right outside the plant where guys stay. I can't think of the name but can get you more information next tuesday. A lot of them drive 4 wheelers into work. LOL

Appreciated.  My truck is only 2WD, and the location doesn't sound particularly developed, but maybe there's more to it.

I'm betting he's referring to ATV's, not 4WD trucks.  Am I right Imaginos?  At least that's what I got and thought you confirmed with your response.   :P

I did indeed presume he meant ATV's, as I saw one guy riding one in every morning during the last outage, albeit with all the other traffic down W'burg Road...   :D

Oh yes I meant ATVs and not that they need them for road conditions or whatever. Just because they are so close, and its cheaper on gas. :) Nothing to actually do with 4 wheel drive. :) Sorry for the confusion

Sounds like he was a computer programmer conractor from the phoniex area.
He says he usually drive his motorcycle to work and doesn't know how it got there.
I guess the FBI will do all the lie dectector tests and interviews to see if he knew or was full of crap and tried to blow up something inside.

Just in case you can't picture a computer programmer really sabotaging a major facility...

Carpooling at PVNGS?
« Reply #222 on: Dec 16, 2007, 03:45 »
I just got an offer as an RP tech and am doing my research for moving into the area.  When I was interviewing there was a mention of people carpooling, and was wondering what routes are available?  I'm looking for a room to rent so it will help to know which routes would be close.

Thanks

Why Tolleson?  Why not Buckeye?

According to our facility info page:

There is a nice place in Tonopah:
