Fast-paced and productive.
Senior Nuclear Procedure Writer, Maintenance (Former Employee) – Salem, NJ – October 12, 2017
A typical day at work
I normally arrived at 0600, reviewed yesterday's work, scoped today's work, and began work. This work was normally interrupted due to having other procedure writers come to me with questions. I was the person with the most experience in our group, so, naturally, I wanted to help them.
What I learned
I learned to challenge more - people, assumptions, etc.
I interfaced with my management daily. I learned that my management could be relied upon to provide guidance and to remove barriers to the procedure process.
The culture was that we should work hard, but take a break as needed.
The hardest part of the job
The hardest part of the job for me was meeting with reviewers and management to obtain approval signatures.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when a procedure was approved and issued.
PSEG's management was well-informed, helpful, and easy to speak with. Peers were helpful.
My priorities were changed a number of times, resulting in some lag needed to come up to speed on new assignments.
Overall, a pleasant and productive place to work.

During the outage, the pace was gruelling.
