Cooper Nuclear Station (Former Employee) – Brownville Nebraska – December 11, 2014
Get company to work for. Took great care of their employees. Great pay with a bonus a the end of the job and they also even sent me a christmas card in the mail thats the first time a company has done that. They also reward the employees with dinners and free lunch tickets.
Well after leaving the staging area it was ether raining or snowing. Or hot or cold, or a combination of any of the above elements. Management was pretty much out of the picture unless the turbine was not running by the end of the day, otherwise you had a team of roughly 4 people including your lead.
Our job was to do the re torque of all main tower sections and all mounting bolts of the turbine blades and gearbox, as well as generator. We had over fifty turbines to do and 4 weeks to complete the contract. So in short you had to move it!!
The hardest part of this job was the climb for a newcomer it was 15min. of separating the men from the boys type climbing. I would have to say the scenery and the fact that I was working at 300ft was the most enjoyable part of the job next to the compensation.

Morning meeting every morning at 8:30am. After meeting, start making phone calls, getting jobs staffed. Helped other recruiters to staff.

The most enjoyable part was meeting all the fantastic people through the years that I consider friends.

Manager of Health and Safety (Current Employee) – Texas – June 19, 2013
The business model exists in a de-centralized structure so, there are many times we must make on-the-spot decisions for our company with little or no guidance. An excellent place to gain lots of experience quickly.
