Pros: hard working, sincere, talented employees.
Cons: influx of non-nuclear "professionals", management by ambush, failure to follow westinghouse internal processes for performance review, bullying short-tempered managers, shifting policies, favoritism
During round one of lay-offs in May of this year, we lost two very senior professional trainers at Waltz Mill. Both of whom had extensive experiences in the nuances and unique requirements of nuclear training. One was one month short of being vested and receiving a pension! Both have received allocades for their skills.
Did I mention that – more... those two instructors resumes match (and far exceed) the recent job posting for Principal Technical Trainer, requisition 14555BR
Of course, the training junior staff (none of whom had prior nuclear experince before joining Westinghouse), training management. admin staff (hourly) and contractors all remain.
We didn't know they were let go for two months, and we need them! No one took over for them (as far as I know). I'll have to do the training myself now.
And, it looks like a new-hire will replace at least one of them!
Why let them go if you're replacing them now? Perhaps the Federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission is watching?
Remarkable – less
