Project Manager of Oversight (Former Employee), Southport, NCJune 25, 2013
I was brought in to repair the failing outage performance. The situation was turned around and I did what I was hired to do. I worked 80 plus hours a week and provided the leadership necessary to get the job done, safely and with quality. The most difficult part of the job was to come up to speed on all the issues during the fast pace of a refueling – more... outage. The most enjoyable part was the interaction with all the people, both the Ames craft and management and the Site leadership. – less
