I stayed at The Park in Cary and we enjoyed our stay considerably better than we did in Raleigh or Sanford. Buffalo must have stayed in one of the newer holes in Sanford at the Palomino.  They were nasty and rude to us on our first "fly-over" at Harris.  Again, The Park in Cary is THE place to be.  It is clean, very nice, and the folks are helpful whenever the outage starts to end and all your buds begin to leave, they'll find you something smaller and more affordable by yourself.  I know of one occasion, they adjusted the rent because a man was left by himself for a couple of weeks and they wanted to take care of him because he was such a good customer...

I was there when Bartlett took over the contract from ARC in 1992.  It was a great place to work, and the house HPs were great also.

The area is great the house people are nice, but we were called ranked amateurs (and on memo) by the rpm on the first day of the sg replacement.   It aint no Brunswick, when it comes to hospitality, but it is not bad.  They shutdown this friday for a three week outage.

Seemed to be a good outage for all, unless you were a aux. building routine tech.   The area and house people were real nice as was the cordinator.  Even the rpm lighten up.  The feasts were good espicially the chicken.  One drawback was the length  20 something days.   Take the shift , whatever that means

Yep we were above the rank amateur status we didnt have any real mistakes as hps, but we did have a couple of people tear open a contaminated valve in a CA with their street clothes on.  We were actually getting kudos doing the generator work, but I did have a group of people carrying me.  And believe it or not I was actually on the platform and not by the camera.  I might have been considered an "C" tech here.

I am finding it hard to believe that a group of techs could carry you as you were the backbone of the entire generator crew.  I did not get the chance to say good bye when you left, it was that inside containment thing, but I hope to see you again (here at Harris, of course).  Since there is no generator work next outage, I will nominate you for an Outage management position.

YOu know how those union people are, no the FPL that work with us was good and he brought a lot of different types of food.  I cant speak for the rest of them, but for some dumb reason are whole group got along even with that mean supervisor FPL sent.  We learned how to hook  up 300k hepa hoses (I hope you checked the storage area after we left duke).  Instead  of outage manager I think I will do decon.  Take care duke and hopefully you will get that better office space.

Worked the last outage at Harris and enjoyed the people. Hated the Ralieigh traffic. Now if Progress Energy could just make some progress towards increasing the pay rates they would get more than the locals to return. Remember " If you PAY WELL they WILL come back"

Looking for information on working at Harris Nuke Plant (Aux operator position).  I'm scheduled for an interview and wondered what the positives/negatives were from a current/former  operator's standpoint.

Thanks.

What exactly would you like to know?  Ops works 12 hour rotating shifts.  If you are coming in as an NLO you get the classes and training. quals, blah, blah, blah.  You will have to qualify for the Fire Brigade, usually massive amounts of overtime.  Our operators are a great group, we usually have a new class start every 18 months or so.

It is not a bad gig for freshly discharged squids or newly minted engineering types. Once you figure out the righty tighty lefty loosy thing you should do OK.  Pay is OK, you get more as you progress in your quals.....

Essentially the same deal as everywhere else that I know of.

Got more specific questions that that?  PM me...

Are you still at NPTU?  The Fleet and Family Service Center in Charleston, assuming the NY one is the same, had a power plant phone book, so to speak, in their TAPs/Job office.  I don't know if it would be worth looking into.  Of course, I don't remember the exact name of the book, but it had the physical address for each plant, and phone numbers and mailing addresses for several of the higher ups.

I was a HP house tech, chemistry tech and primary chemistry supervisor from 1992 - 2000.  Shearon Harris was a great place to work including HP, chemistry and operations.  I made the decision to leave so I could move back to Alabama and care for my mom.  If  my Mom had not became ill, I would still be there.  As mentioned in previous posts, when I was there the overtime was unlimited.  Again a great place to work and a great area to raise a family.

That depends on a lot of things (i.e., education, experience).  A house chem tech can make anywhere from 27 to 35 per hour and this of course varies from locale to locale.

Hello everyone,javascript:void(0);

i have read though many threads on pay and rotating shift. sorry if anyone thinks i should use the search method. i am an ET1 been in for 5 years, will be out in November.  will have the thomas edison degree when i get out. i am looking into the Shearon harris plant. am trying to find out if there is a difference between a nlo with a degree or not there. what is the starting base pay? what is the rotating shift that they implement? i don't believe that i would accept an instant SRO (in seems alot of people believe that they are set up for failure) position but i am curious if they do that. i have looked on the website and didn't see much for entry level positions. is there a freeze on hiring? does anyone know how i should go about applying if there wasn't a posting on their website? any information on shearon harris would be great. i am not limiting myself to just shearon harris, but i just like to be well informed.     


thanks

First off, if you are offered SRO class, take it, be humble, and work your tail off. That should dissuade anyone from thinking you are not worthy of the chance. Its your career.

I just applied to Harris for an upcoming NLO position. I was told that Brunswick NLO class is filled. Crystal is hiring for an Assistant Aux Operator which I was told was a lower position than Aux Operator-C, however the position descriptions read about the same.

I'll PM you a link that may help get you to a progress recruiter.

Sincerely,

Nub

I work for Progress down at Brunswick, and from looking at our job postings, yes we are hiring NLO/AO's; we're hiring new AO's pretty much constantly.  Actually, our Ops Manager just told me that we are going to have a new AO class at least yearly, so I'm sure Harris is in the same boat.  I think the rush on instant SRO's is pretty much over for us (at least for a while.)  The people I know at Harris are easy going and good to work with; in fact I almost went there, but I couldn't resist living 3 miles from the beach.  Keep hitting the Progress website and stay apprised of openings.  That's the best advice I can give.  Eventually someone should give you a call if you are competitive.  Don't be surprised if it takes a little while.  Human Resources runs alot of the recruiting, and they typically aren't in tune with how important it is to scoop up good operators.  And NukeNub's advice is spot on: if someone offers you an SRO spot, don't say no.  From what I've seen, they wouldn't offer you that spot if they didn't think you could make it.  Also, we've had a few people drop out of license class for various reasons and they are still at the site working as AO's or maintenance guys.

I currently live in Garner NC and am working in the mid-west.  Since the Enron incident which I am a victim, I have been seeking an in-house non-ops training position at Shearon Harris.  I am almost 62 years old and have a very strong SAT based training background.  Can anyone provide me with some information on the situation at Harris.  I have submitted numerous resumes and have filled out applications but to no avail.  Knowing that no companies age discriminate, HaHa, could someone provide me with some insight at Harris.

Yah I applied for the operator job as well.  Took the POSS test for southern company and passed with no problem.  I live in Augusta GA and hope that is not a detering factor when they look at my application.  Lived in Raleigh for a few years when my dad worked at Harris, and loved it.
