Any place that lets me work there without a for cause drug test, right after the Feds seize my Caddy because they claim the 2.5 grams of coke they found inside was above zero tolerance, can't be all bad. Ah the memories! Mechanic cart races in the drywell basement, NRC forced shutdown, underaged girls in all the bars, 200 inches of snow and a room above a bar with a laudry. All this and the Scrog-man too. Who could ask for anything more?

NIMO is only as good as you attitude.  Have worked in worse places. Pay and bonus are great.
Title: Nine Mile Lodging
Post by: RAD-GHOST on Nov 07, 2003, 05:36
Was that Attitude or Latitude?  We all know what the Latitude is like, maybe this explained the Attitudes!  As far as good pay and bonus's?  For the area, wages are better then great!  As far a bonus's, they have reworded the phrase to BONE-US!  Enough Said!

Friends don't let Friends work NIMO!

Rad Ghost,

NiMo doesn't own Nine Mile anymore.  Constellation owns them.  Things have changed.  The old regime is gone.

I have to add my two cents worth. I worked at Nine Mile and I haven't worked with a better group of techs and house people. I was always treated great and I miss all my friends up there. I wish you all the best up there on your outage, I wish that I could be up there with you all.

REMBOY and ARYAN, If you are going to talk bad about the Techs at Nine Mile. Will you please tell us your real names so we will  be able to stay clear of you and to watch our backs around the two of you. One from the bottom of the barrel.
Title: Nine Mile Lodging
Post by: RAD-GHOST on Mar 24, 2004, 09:37
Sounds like things are still the same at NIMO!  Maybe a new company and some new faces, but the same Latitude and Attitudes!

Since their are a limited number of techs in the business, who haven't experienced the site, a future returnee's rate of 10% should prove to be a challenge!  Hopefully the site managment will maintain the distastefull environment!  That way the money will be worth the trip!

The more they say, the more they pay!

AGAIN, Friends don't let Friends work NIMO!

I've worked at both units, I preffered 1 over 2 becuase of the design. it was easier to work and move around in. But you needed to really move fast cause it was hot as a firecracker! As far as the house techs, there were some really good ones and a few bad ones, same as every site I've ever been to. ARYAN and REMBOY, please no attacks, the Moderators will delete your posts, as for  the house techs, take a look in the mirror, do a self evaluation, then tighten it up a notch or 2! Make sure it's not you that they are slamming, then figure out who it is, coach them a bit, and make your site a better place for everybody! I really enjoyed Nine Mile, (except for the weather and state taxes) miss not being able to go back!

ARYAN, I'm still here working. I did not think your last reply was worth me anwsering. I have been around a  long time and know that I am not one of the bottom of the barrel. I do my job and try and help others due theirs, if they want are need the help. What about you? I have had a good outage and have been treated good by the house and the Bartlett Techs I work with. And yes some are not up to speed and it is up to us to help them. So they become better tech's. I Would come back here  again. As all things change and I think Nine Mile saw the writing on the wall and is trying to change. Hope were ever you go, it is good for you and yours

I looked at my fishing pole the other day and thought it must be about that time that the fish are running up there.I ran out and caught 2 cans of salmon and a frozen trout at the grocery store (just dosen't seem to be the same as fresh caught fish  :(  ). Still wishin ya'll the best  on your outage. Take care and be safe.

I had a good time at Nine Mile, though I wish I could have stayed longer. Overall, I thought the techs were pretty decent. Dang, I wish I had been there for some of that lasagna!

Gary,It was good to work with you. Maybe I will get over your way one day. Hope you have a good outage. Thanks for your help. Brad

Post by: RemBoy on Apr 13, 2004, 03:03
Gary... Didn't see you much in the TB after you were traded off.  A few of us finished up and headed to SC. Weather's better here.
We were treated well by the techs and the TB leads. Maybe go back for the next one.
Might head up for your outage.
Had things buttoned up yet, when you left?
see you soon

Peace  ;D

Well, another RFO looms.  What's worse than short staffed?  Short staffed and half of the techs have no nuc plant experience.  Will be an interesting outage.  At least drywell dose will be down with the chem decon, and it is only a 35 dayer. 
Tension everywhere cause of the preoutage house layoffs, with more in the offing after the outage.  Hope all goes smooooooth.

How's the outage going?  No posts about Nine Mile since 2006?  What's up with that?
Title: Re: Nine Mile
Post by: johnnieslingshot on Apr 03, 2008, 11:02
So far I would have to say that the outage is going pretty well.  I have do not have any complaints about the house techs or supervision.  I would love to come here again if the outage was longer.  Getting only 2 weeks of 12's sucks.  In my opinion it is not worth putting up with the cold and the snow.  Being from South Carolina, I would much prefer the 50's and 70's temps.  I have been working the refuel floor which is a totally new experience for me.  The house techs and supervision have been very patient with my questions and lack of knowledge in this area.  I like the plant but would only return for 4 weak-er or longer.  18 days is just too darn short.

Have you had any luck so far???  On July 30th thru August 3rd Entergy (Fitzpatrick plant) had a job posting for 3 nuclear security guards.  From what I have been told by some people who work there they actually need many more than that.  But one of the people I know that works there told me yesterday that there has been a freeze on hiring due to the economic times...I guess it came down from corporate.  Also, I got an email from entergy basically saying that they are not continuing the hiring process...whether it is because of the reason I just stated or because I did not make the cut, I do not know.  I too am prior military and have a pistol permit so I can't imagine I would not be asked to atleast an interview.  Let me know if you happen to get any info.  By the way do you live in Oswego? I'm living in Central Square.

No- no luck! I didn't even see the posting!!!!! I am in Oswego- less than 5 mins from the plants.

I'm still waiting to hear back from my one friend that works security at the Fitzpatrick plant (entergy). Hopefully she can give me some insight as to what the heck is going on...I can't imagine they would put a freeze on hiring new security guards if they need them...I believe she told me that the new NRC regulations call for more guards per shift and it is supposed to be in place by September, atleast thats what she told me a few months ago when they were hiring  a bunch more new people.  But do to people moving into management positions and 3 people that didn't get through the training she said they probably need to add atleast 10 to 14...but those number may come from there pool of people they had apply the last time.  I'll definately post something here if she gets back 2 me.

They could have only needed 3 applicants from "outside" the rest could have been filled by "in house" applicants. A lot of "in house" employees leave security for maintenance, only to find out they were better off in as a NSO. If I am not mistaken I have heard about the new NRC regs. If Entergy put a hold on the openings it must be something that corp. is calling for. Good Luck and if I hear anything I will post.
Title: Re: Nine Mile
Post by: mike913 on Aug 07, 2009, 11:20
my friend I know that works security at the Entergy plant email me yesterday saying that there isn't a "hiring freeze" persay, but it sounds like they are pulling people from the previous list of applicants.  So I'm not sure what is going on there.

Anyone one know how I can get into contact with human resources or a hiring manager at Nine Mile Point in Oswego, NY.  I applied for an Nuclear Security Officer job there and I know they have been interviewing people for the positions.  I wrote 2 emails to the HR at the Corp. HQ about a problem I had with the application process but they never even responded.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I was in the Army for 5 years (infantry), I have a pistol permit and drivers license so I just can't see a reason why they would not want to atleast interview me.
