    French micromanage and weigh down growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for seeing the younger professional's need to learn through training and mentoring programs. Though my transition as a nuclear engineer has been rocky, Areva has opened many avenues of growth (NANTEL, NAYGN, online training, initial mentoring upon arrival). What I see now is that Areva wants to keep younger professionals engaged and turn them into experts, but many of us are too distracted and want to have a lot of different experiences. One thing that younger professionals, engineers specifically, miss out on is building something. Most of the codes, methods, and processes that our industry employs were created, subsequently regulated, and now have reached a plateau of upkeep and maintenance. I want a problem I can solve, an issue I can fix, a program to build, a process to piece together. I get none of that because I am just running the same analyses and codes using the same guidelines and methods that were built 30-40 years ago. I think I am done with it.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AREVA.

    Interview Details

    My interview experience was many years ago. The company is currently using behavioral interviewing technique. That is all I can say. Utilize telephone interviews and site visits in interview process.

    The current interview process asks situational questions and wants to know how you react. Questions such as what you learned from one of your failures, what is your greatest strength and why.

The AREVA Group has gone nuclear, and beyond (into renewable energy). The state-controlled company is involved in every step of nuclear power production. AREVA mines uranium and enriches it (under the trade name AREVA NC), and it builds nuclear reactors and services them. The company also treats and recycles used fuel. Subsidiary Canberra makes radiation detection equipment. AREVA is also developing a broad portfolio of clean energy plants (using wind energy, bioenergy, solar power, hydrogen power and other renewable sources) to complement its nuclear energy activities.
