=D  =D Very personable place to work: RP department took positive steps to praise and congratulate the work group on a daily basis. They were easy to work with and for, motivated all workers to exceptional personal performance, and celebrated successes daily. They listened to others, and put people before goals by showing generosity and compassion. They possessed a high level of communication.

The RPM/RPS Ken Steel, had strong character with charisma.  He and his team were dynamic and uncompromising in their fundamental beliefs, striving for excellence in themselves and their team, and others. They exhibited humor in situations, and knew how to have fun. They did what they said they’re going to and followed through with promises.  A GREAT PLANT TO WORK!!!

Minor correction:  Mark Puckett is the RPM and Ted Maine is the RP OPS sup.

Been awhile since I worked there, but I agree, a good place to work. There was one funny/not funny instance with a lead (Terry Thompson) using a radio to warn the containment entrance control point that the NRC was coming in for a tour (D.R.D.R.F.D.)and the NRC guy heard it over the open channel loud and clear!! :P

I always had great times there.  I once got invited to dinner with a plant VP.  We told the establishment it was his birthday.  Hilarity ensued.  He took it all like a champ.  Great place, great peeps.
Cheers,

". . .Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name . . . "

There's a special place in my heart for Fort Kaboom! Those folks know how to treat people from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, and they still keep in touch after the outage!  The leadership is open and honest, treats you like part of the team, values and encourages input, and SUPPORTS technicians in the field.  And, they don't act like it's Refuel 1;  they have a plan and work it with no B.S.  Lots of food and fun too!  This is the only place where I 've sat with the plant manager and the VP on a break at midnight, and was treated like an equal by both;  that's just the way it is there.  There is no better place for a road tech.

Sunshine1, we had fun at Kaboom.  Also at PI, smoking out in the COLD weather.  I miss ya!.  Went house, but if I see you here, we'll play some pool. . . .

I went to Kaboom about 4-5 years ago to do a refueling outage(the first time they ever contracted the refuel),What a nightmare that was.The old union-nonunion thing reared it's ugly head.We were set up to fail every chance the union boy's got a chance,i.e.ask them for advice on how they did things in the past and they would give you bogus info.Alas, the last 3 refuels there have gotting better and better every year.The site guy's (union) are the best in the industry,very helpful and accomodating and generally great guys and gals.It's my favorite site and I always look forward to going there.The HP's are the best also.And Omaha is a great city to hang out in.

     First of all, an apology for the Micky D's comment, it was just some light humor!  The few of us (ex-road techs) here are continually on the side of the contract work force as we know what it was like to be out there!  The WTL issue has reared it's head here every outage but I believe there are some union implications that prevent it from being erradicated.  FTC management has always been supportive of the contract HP's that help us out and the new RPM continues that philosophy.  It also helps that we have an ex-Bartlett coordinator as an RP supervisor, he has been very instrumental getting the pay increased and initiating what bonus there is!  This is a huge outage for FTC and just like all the others; pay, WTL, bonus issues, it's always a battle!  We very much welcome and support the experience of the road techs and I can promise you that those of here that have been on the road do not forget where we came from and we will try to make it a pleasant stay for you, even if you have to live in Blair! :)

For those of you who have never been to FTC..all the above mentioned issues are minimal compared to working at the plant...You get treated way above average & the House techs are really cool to work with...i was invited and would have gone to the outage too...but....anyway, it should be a good time! If you can get in, GO!
