i was just confirmed buy tech USA friday. sorry hit the wrong , I geuss no one lese here has done that, Rp is not my field any more but if nothing comes up I will take the slot.
there are a lot of back up contracts out there if you are willing to risk waiting for them.
I geuss Fl could be 3rd world. but 40 An hour and 150  DAY IS Not bad plus time and half

Translation?

Mark - are you saying Tech USA confirmed you in for an HP slot at Turkey? or are you going in as something else or somewhere else?  Just trying to clarify your post.

Thanks,
Eric

Did you take the slot as spell checker because I knew someone looking for that assignment?

I have been contacted by Turkey Point for Nuclear Plant Operator and am more than likely going to be called for an interview as my application status in my profile says so. Does anyone have any information about that plant, bad or good? I have read the thread and it is rather old so things may have changed between now and then.

I appreciate any information,advice and/or help that can be offered regarding me getting into this plant.

Brush up on your Spanish and get a carry permit.

Awww, c'mon, that thread was so old and antiquated, I'm sure things have changed since then ;)

Gracias Senors, hablo espanol......and I am armed to the teeth. I will seek a conceal carry license, I have always wanted one anyway.

I was hoping to get some info about the plant itself and the type of folks working there.

I don't think you need a conceal carry license in Homestead, everybody is armed to the teeth, even the baggers at Publix grocery store carry a 9. As far as the plant/area goes, well learn to dodge gators on the access road, drive 120mph on the turnpike since US 1 is a good place to get shot when stopped at a light, speak spanish ( check), live 45 minutes away from the plant. The plant is old, but fun to work. The most people there are really nice and friendly, but like every plant, there is a few who are disgruntle.

Take the job if it is offered, you may be able to transfer to St. Lucie when the opportunity arises, that seems to be the modus operandi for alot of folks there. And buy Desert Eagle 50 cal and a used cop car to take to work....safety first!

   I did one outage there in 83 I would have thought it would have improved by now. I got a hair cut just after I arrived in Homestead while paying the bill I was asked if I was new and if I had a gun. When I replied that I was and no I did not have a gun he pulled out three from under the register and asked if I wanted to buy one. I did have a good time down there despite that, the Everglades, the Keys, etc. make up for a lot its just not "Kansas".

Id like to get into turkey point for their 120 day outage but I heard that they rarely accept "outsiders" and a lot of their employees are returnees. Does anyone know if this is true? Ive been decon for the past 2 years with some jr hp time in (8 months) and I'm finally ready to hit the road and start traveling.

 Any tips on how to get into this plant? I have no connections to Turkey point so I'm relying solely on my work experience. any road techs out there who could shed some light on this? Thanks in advance :)

Bartlett has the contract so you can contact them. Sharon Casey is the outage coordinator for them and she's good to work with/for.

I'm looking for a place to rent near turkey point. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths minimum. Monthly rental and I'm looking at 6 months or more being down there. Want a safe and secure neighborhood. Any info would be appreciated, trying to rent a place rather than pull my 5th wheel down there. Thanks, Mike

I want to get in on this outage, but I am a newbie with no experience.  I wanna get in on Decon.  Does anyone know if they will be bringing in first timers?  What is Sharon Casey's phone number?

Jeff, you've got to do a better job of looking out for yourself...
When you 'get the call' to go somewhere always ask about pay, per diem, and travel. I'm pretty sure they'll give you what's due, they're not in the business of ripping you off.

 As far as lodging, try the Value Place, or the Floridian in Florida City. Ask for the FPL rate, but keep in mind it's the expensive season down there. If it's cheap, it'll most likely be a sh***hole, so don't get your hopes up.

When you get to training, ask around and see where everyone else is staying and go to that motel.
Good Luck.
