Pros: excellent pay & benefits
Cons: long hours when plant was shut-down
I enjoyed my days working at the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant, New York Power Authority. A typical day could be a 12 hour day when the plant was on shut-down. My manager in the Instrument & Control Dept. was fair, honest and hard working. We as a department worked well together and as a team. The hardest part of the day was getting all the procedural changes, revisions out in a timely manner per the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. I enjoyed doing procedures and working with computers. I learned a lot about working at a nuclear plant and all its regulations.
