I really have to laugh at the posts i read throughout these forums, people complaining about their wages,who they work for,who they work with, ect. please look around at others that make a 3rd of what you make and see if they are complaining? just happy that they can make a living and support their families!

If they are making a 3rd of what a typical rent-a-tech makes, they are probably flipping burgers ;D. Not picking on you, I get your point. But in my mind, it isn't a valid arguement for what our pay is or is not. It's kind of like being made to feel guilty for being an American when so many people in other countries live a 3rd world life. One is not related to the other, the other is not my fault and is my choice to be concerned or not. There was an extraordandary price paid at some point for me (and you) to be an American, that's why I do not feel guilty about it. Likewise, I pay a personal price (although I am not putting it in the same category as the previous example, just using it to make the point) to do this job and it should be compensated fairly. Just like the people that flip burgers are compensated fairly for their job. We are unique in the fact that it takes (X)training, (X) amount of years, ability to obtain unescorted access, pass the tests, travel sometimes thousands of miles from home, leaving the family for weeks or months at a time etc. The burger flipper just has to show up on time and follow directions, and he gets to go home every day.

I am one of the few with a RP job that I am satified with, both financially and work scope. While on the road (up to 6 months ago) I appreciated the fact that I had a job, I know what it is like to dig for change to put gas in the car (and that wasn't too long ago for me). That alone doesn't make up for the fact that we are generally undercompensated for the job as compared to permanent folks doing the same job. There is a tremendous need in the industry right now for RP techs, there is also a tremendous amount of money that has been injected (talking DOE here) and still I see temporary jobs posted that do not offer perdiem and have a wage that is just the same as it has been for several years, too low.

If we are "guilted" into believing that we should just be happy that we have jobs, the 30% difference in pay will become 50% difference. Bad economic times and many people just trying to get by makes me feel bad for them, and I have made the decision to help some people that are close to me over the past couple of years. But none of that will make me feel satisfied about making a low wage for the industry just because I am happy to have a job.

Could that be the DOE techs?  Or the techs that are swapping back & forth from DOE-land to outages...?

Core techs at Duke sites get shafted!! I would never see any benefit of ever being one!! It is funny to watch them. They run around like a bunch of retards. Then they see collage kids that have no clue what so ever get the house slots that the core people have slaved for how many ever years trying to get!! The funniest part about it is some of these people don't realize is that Duke is not the only utility out there!!

I have had more problems with Bartlett than any other company that i have worked for. The last time i work for Bartlett i was at Trukey Pt. When i got my first check it was short several hundred dollars, there was a deduction for court ordered child support.I don't have any kids on this earth. I called and was told that i would have to go through the courts to get it back and that i needed to step up the plate and be a real parent and do my duty. After several weeks and threat of litigation they gave me my money back, when they realized that they was another rad worker with my name. Even though they knew that the social security #'s didn't match they were convinced that i was the dead beat dad. Hey Bartlett "I DON'T HAVE AND CHILDREN" maybe this is why they won't hire me today. Bartlett can NOT claim to be an Equal Opportunity Employer when they won't even submit your resume. And every time i have worked for them i have always done my job and got a good review. Just this year i submitted my resume for approval at Turkey and BARTLETT didn't even return my calls or e-mails. Well theres no shame in welfare.Remo



I remember that outage!! That sucks!!

If by permanent employee you mean someone that is non-billable and not hired under a specific "site contract", basically some one paid out of overhead such as myself then the answer is no, we do not have 200 techs "permanently" employed.

sounds like the running arguement is that you need to negotiate in good faith, and  from a point of leverage.....
so, stay home until they raise the pay rates. Then again for the two or three weeks you wait, you really don't gain
anything from the raised pay rates because of the weeks of work you lost.

bottom line is to go house or go back to school, you can't eek out a living wage from Bartlett.

I will outside this forum. I don't won't to waste time on the details. But I'll bet I'm not the first RP that the recruiters have misled or outright lied to. If the recruiters simply laid out the details of the compensation package and those were accurate when we arrive on site, I believe there would be less room for complaint. I take a job based on what I'm offered either now or for some consideration in the future. Those of us that work unhappily want something out of Bartlett later. If that turns out to be untrue as well then there is a pattern of lies. If the company can't be trusted to deliver what they offer then we'll stop working for them. If they deliver what on the promises made then our acceptance is a statement that the deal was good enough.

I suggest that you contact Eric Bartlett directly with the details and get your issues resolved.

But K-Mutant, you refuse to work for Bartlett yourself.  'sup?

There have probably been isolated cases of this practice, but it wouldn't benefit any recruiter to practice the venue.  I've heard a lot of Techs assign the "LIAR" title to some recruiters, but in the long run it was the Techs failure to ask the proper questions! 

How Much: 

It's not only reasonable, but also responsible to ask how much you will compensated!  Hourly Rate, Per-Diem, Travel and Bonuses are all numbers you should know BEFORE showing up!

Benefits: 

Is there any?  If there are, what are they and how much are you compensated?  DOE and some government contracts have a Health & Welfare value and Vacation or PTO is usually offered!

Travel:

In only, Out, or Both? How Much?

Length of Assignment:

YEP, You have a right to ask how long you will be there.  Maybe you have some plans that will require you to leave before the an anticipated end date.  Usually a recruiter can make arrangements up front for an early release.

Site Atmosphere:

YES, You have a right to know what your getting into!  Most sites are getting in tune with how they treat their contract staff.  Those who haven't quite figured it out are paying the price $$$!  Most recruiters will politically polish the answer to this question, but if it's not as they say, there's no reason to stay!

If you wait to ask these question on show up day, expect the worst!  The coordinator only has a list of name and asking these questions on day one, will probably put you on the special list!

On a lighter note, did anyone else recieve their Christmas bonus from Big Blue this year? Okay, before you riot or call up and demand yours... I'm talking about the beautiful Christmas card that came in the mail this year.

So many people are giving up this time honored tradition that it nice to see that Bartlett still sends out seasonings greetings.

All this complaining seems spread out over a long time.   I guess you can not please all of the people all of the time.  I have had a GREAT run with Bartlett with just one exception (someone told me my resume was sent to Calhoun... funny thing when the RPM called me for my resume instead of the recruiter..).

All said and done, I'd go back to work for Bartlett again when my current gig is up...... although it looks like I mught be here for a long time.

All you whiners get off your butts and take care of yourself... I am a perfect example of someone screwing up and still learning from my mistakes.  I know that I could easily walk into any plant I have been to and be welcomed back, and hope to do that again someday.  Until my current position/climb is up I wish all those of you I have worked with and for continued success..... and a safe and HAPPY Holidays......

P.S.  Thanks Eric for tryinig to get me into Calhoun that one time,  I was a little bitter when it did not come to pass, but I was able to do good work for you guys at DC Cook..... peace
