I went to Vogtle in September of 1988 for the first refuel of unit 1. Unit 2 was still under construction. I didn't leave there until around June 1992. It was a great place to work and the people were wonderful. Kerry Brown, Jim Dixon, Ken Petrofski, Steve Burris, Curtis Peters, Rick Riley, Jerry Lucott, Gloria,Brad,Tweed, Wayne, Humpey, Jimmy, Steve (McCloud), Art, Mike, Dave (Rochester), Jeff, Nelson Rayburn, Burnis Coleman........The list goes on and on and I can't think of a bad thing to say about a single one of them. For those of you who don't know me....That's sayin' a lot. Who knows.....Maybe someday I'll have that red clay under my feet again.....Maybe....just maybe......This time I'd stay.

PS
Tarbox,
You swung through a few times while I was there. You were one of the brightest young road scholars I ever ran across in my travels. I'm glad to see you're doing well.

I was there in 1990 and 1991.  I like everything there was about Vogtle...the house techs, the hours, the work conditions, Joey Crider, the deconners, and especially the south and the state of Ga...being from GA.

HAIRDUDE-Yes those were the days.

I WAS a house puke there until yesterday. As a Christmas present SNC fired me after almost 14 years. One of our "shared" read (house techs from Hatch or Farley) personnel claimed I created a hostile work environment. Down with the hammer, up with the knee and out the gate.

But I digress, much has changed. The house guys(at least the ex contract)try to treat the contractors well.  More and more of the old breed is leaving and being replaced by folks who know everything they were taught in SkcooL. ;D

tarbox - no it has gotten worse, not better.

The trouble with using experience as a guide is that the final exam often comes first and then the lesson.  ~ Author Unknown

If I want to
a) live in the south east, ideally Georgia (I love my grits)
b) live near a large town or small-medium city
c) work on a nuclear reactor

is this a good place to work?

I worked there in 2001 and 2004 (I think. I will have to go home and look at the t-shirts) Great place to work the people are fantastic, the contractors are all returnees and everyone plays well together. I would recommend night shift. In addition to the above ,the music is great. You'll know what I mean when you get there. Best run outages I've ever seen.
Sometimes I look back on my life and think I could have had to work for a living. Thank God, I'm an HP.

Have a friend in my sunday school class that I teach who is an SRO out there, and says he really enjoys it.  Great managment, people, and work atmosphere.  Hes been trying to help me get on out there.

I think they have an SRO class coming-up soon, so I'm going to start calling soon since I'm only a couple of months away from EAOS.  I'm a little nervous now since I'm without a job for the first time in 13 years, but I think it'll work itself out.  That's assuming I can't get my sugar momma to support me for the rest of my life.

Apparently the IBEW and Southern Nuclear stopped talking.  The current contract expires in September-ish (I think) after a 90 day extension.  It looks like there are no further talks scheduled.

Howdy,
I'm a navy nuke EM1 getting out in 80 days (January 12th 2009). 
I did 8 years, 2 as a staff pickup in Charleston, SC.
From what I've read all over these forums, I should try to get a NLO/Aux Operator job to get my foot in the door and eventually work my way up. 

I think the first step though will be getting my resume to the right person...

Does anyone know who I can contact at plant Vogtle?  I've been checking https://southerncompany.taleo.net (the job application website for southern company) frequently, but haven't seen much there.  I posted an application for a "Nuclear Operations Plant Instructor" job, the only thing I have seen there anything close to nuclear plant operation. 

I'll be in Augusta Georgia for most of December trying to find a job near there, Ideally at Vogtle or SRS.  Admittedly, Vogtle is my dream job.  I'm from Augusta, and I want to stay close to home.  Anyone who can help in any way is my new friend^

I'll check into it for ya, I am good friends with and SRO out there and maybe he can give me a name.  I know that they are in a shutdown right now but from what ive heard they will be looking for new hires starting in march time frame.  I know also they are pretty close to getting underway with the 2 new reactors they want to build out there.
