Russygirl.Also Palo Verde Operator. I doubt your Plant Manager and VP (Overbeck right) hires a navy guy simply because he can "mold" him. INPO hates that attitude and most utilities try to get guys in from other nukes because they welcome the point of view. I doubt Greg appreciates you posting that....Mike
I am an AO at Palo Verde. First of all they are looking for Navy Nukes. He has a degree. If he has any other Nuclear exp. I would say he would have no problem getting to atleast take the POSS test. Make sure everything is on his resume. all certificates and such that apply to environmental, nuke, etc. Good Luck.
I work at Palo Verde as an Operator. You will have no problem with the salary ranges. The operator trainee salary advances up quickly over the 18 month period it takes to get fully qualified. You would be working a 5 week rotating shift with days and nights. I found the best study for the POSS test is the ASVAB. You can pick it up at Borders or Barns and Noble.
What you posted could result in an AFI for not considering hiring guys from the industry.
Whether Greg or the PM do the actual hiring I doubt they approve of you posting an unofficial hiring policy on a public forum. When you post something like that here you are in fact representing your company. We had a guy from INPO ask us all sorts of questions about something a guy posted on a public site. Our Management had a lot of explaining to do. What you posted could result in an AFI for not considering hiring guys from the industry.At the worst you've made a company policy concerning hiring, which could rsult in a lawsuit. I'm a manager at another utility and if I saw a guy from my plant posting a statement like that I'd be skinning him right now.Mike
Looking for anyone who works there...I've been a computer admin for about 15 years now, have military experience, but not nuke. I'm being outsourced (laid off, screwed, beheaded, etc) to India and the Phillipines in June 2005 so I'm looking to do something else. I live 15 miles east of PVNGS and I've been watching the place for about five years. Very few jobs advertised to the outside world. As luck would have it (of course), there are now two jobs being advertised there which I might be able to do. One is for an I&C computer tech for their security system and the other is for an auxiliary operator trainee. I applied for both and have gotten a response on the I&C job. I'm scheduled to take a MASS (?) test next week. They were looking for computer and electronics experience which I have, so I'm not surprised. The operator job doesn't close (for bidding) for another week so I don't expect to hear anything on it for at least four more weeks. It takes them about three weeks to respond after the bidding closes. I have a strong math/physics background, so I might get interest, but I think if they get anyone to bid with navy experience then I'm probably out of luck. Too bad, though, because that job sounds more interesting.What's missing from the bids are the salary ranges. I know from searching the net that an I&C job pays in the $45K-$65K range, but that's for the nuke side. I'm wondering if the computer side is lower (probably is...). The operator job I have no idea on. I'm guessing $50K range to start based upon some of the other message threads I've found on this board.I'm hoping to find someone here that's actually in those positions at PVNGS so I can get some info. I can get another computer job easily enough, but I have to commute 100-150 miles a day for a decent one. I'd be much better off if I could get into PVNGS (doing anything). I picked these two positions because they match my background the best.So, does anyone work at PVNGS (and want to chat)...?
