No way!  It looks like this one is real.  That $30/hr is about a fair wage, but the $60 per diem in Phoenix, AZ is an insult.
People had better stop thinking of pay and per diem as being interchangeable, otherwise its all going to be taxable before long.

Wow!!  Times are changin'.  We recently had a posting for FOUR SR's (4) F-O-U-R!!  And only 8 people applied.  2 contractors, 2 JRS, 1 QC Contractor, and the rest Navy.  I didn't see any of your names that applied.  Stop whining!!  You had a chance if you are really looking for a way to survive with a good paying job!!  Damn!!

Dude, working 60hrs a week for 30 an hour with 60 a day diem is an offer I can refuse.   And if you are talking about a house job, who said we all want to be house?  Get real.

hum....lets see.
I have worked many times at PV most recently the last SGR.
The plant is OK...not too bad.
As for the "surviving" part.
That's BS!!!!
Not EVERYONE likes 115 degree summers...that last almost 5 months!!
& traffic out the pooper in Phoenix & Avondale...
The drive to the plant, even from Avondale is 40 min.
Folks have "survived" without going house at PV for a long time.
If you like it there, great for you, Phoenix & the surrounding areas
are not EVERYONE'S cup of tea.
Best move i made was getting out of Phoenix, AZ. 15 years ago.
As far as the number of applicants goes....see the above comments!

Couldn't agree with you more! I happen to be one of those oddballs that LIKE Phoenix, but driving forever to a plant that is (as you said) "OK" , for an unrealistic amount of money, is not going to lure me. I'll visit friends and relatives there and leave the PV experience to others. Best to the family RR.

For the guy wondering about OPS hiring-  I think they plan on hiring some guys in about 6 months.  October time frame.  Send me your email and resume and I'll let you know when they post it on the website and get it to someone as well.  Good luck!  reytrejo@yahoo.com

Okay, Unit 1 didn't make it by 6/16, but it is in mode 3 and will likely close breakers tomorrow.  :D

All right, we didn't make it by the second, but Unit 1 is currently at 92% and rising. Mission, it appears, accomplished!
