Nuclear Security (Current Employee) – Richland, WA – October 8, 2018
Qualifications and experience mean little compared to family connections and if you were born and raised in the area. Outsiders have little to no chance for advancement. Schedules are either a 4/10 or a "Dupont" 12 hour rotation. Rated as the most dangerous schedule in existence. 4 days on 2 off 3 nights on 2 off 3 days on 2 off 4 nights on 8 days off. Multi-million dollar judgements have been laid against organizations using this schedule. It increases health risks including but not limited to Diabetes, Obesity, High Blood Pressure and many more. Terminations and turn over is plentiful. The hardest part of the job is staying awake on the rotating 12's.
Fast top out in pay, good pay and benifits
Schedule, Mangement is autocratic, Good ol' boy rules
ACCOUNTING CLERK (Former Employee) – Richland, WA – August 18, 2018
Being a nuclear energy producing facility, some of the work can be stressful and demanding. I worked in the corporate offices and even though we weren't working directly with energy generation we were required to do our work with the highest of standards. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my peers.
Legal Services Legal Assistant II (Current Employee) – Richland, WA – October 7, 2017
I love my job at ENW. The people there are great. My job is research so basically I work independently. I have learned a lot there about how to work more error free. The hardest part of the job is some of the nuclear requirements and trainings they take you away from the work you are expected to accomplish. The best part of the job is my legal team they are all fun, smart people that I enjoy spending my day with.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – CGS – October 11, 2016
This is a small nuclear utility that is a good old boys network. This company is very limited on upward mobility basically someone has to die. This company is also very cloed minded and not willing to change. The Company is not fiscal responsible and still operating 10 years behind similar nuclear plants.
Great place to work. Great retirement and good benefits.
