Is Ft. Calhoun a good place to work?

I'm interested in the Ft. Calhoun area, but what is the plant like?  Does OPPD take decent care of their employees?  Do they put most people on 4 tens or 5 eights?

I am just coming in as an operator and they have taken great care of me so far.  Seems to be a great plant to work at.

If you where to make an educated guess (or look into your crystal ball) would any of you think that Fort Calhoun will be hiring ops personnel around this time next year?

I worked a couple of outages there as a contractor and thought the people at the plant were professional and very welcoming to a contractor. It is a very friendly plant. Therefore I think you would be treated just the same if you were hired in house.

I stayed in Blair for the outages, small town a few miles from the plant. The people were great, they actually liked the contractors - business owners and residents alike. Everyone knows everyone in this town, which is nice because they seemed to always look out for each other, even us out of towners.

As for the hours at the plant during run time, I am not sure, hopefully someone from Ft Calhoun will post something for you. Good Luck.

This seems to be the outage that will never end! We haven't even started refueling yet.
It is good for our wallets though ca-ching.
We are having a kick ass pot luck tonight.

All the containment techs have learned so much from joyce wade.

And one of our tech's affectionatly known as the "CHI WAWA BITCH" just can't play nice with the high rad boundry guards so she got booted to the penalty box with the rest of out spoken  containment techs.

We are just one big happy family here.

ALOTA LOVE GOING ON AROUND HERE.

Yes it's true, after a long and strenuous outage, it looks like it's finally over!  Supposed to close breakers today.  Wish you could of made it here Laurie!  Kudos to all your fellow Bartlett techs that stuck with us through the outage!  It was a pretty rough one but they hung in there, we couldn't have done it without their dedication.

Any update available on the situation at Fort Calhoun in regards to the rising flood waters?




That's Oahe Dam's spillway near Pierre, S.D. taken a few days ago. 75,000 cfs is roughly 500K gallons per second  being added down the Mighty Mo'. There is plenty more melting Rocky Mountain snowpack coming.
