    Current Employee - Nuclear Control Operator in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and Wages, Job Security, Comradery, Shift Rotation provides time off during the weekdays, and Sense of Purpose and Satisfaction

    Cons

    Shift Rotation requires changing sleep schedules. Sometimes the scheduled time off does not match well with business hours, school hours, and normal 9-5 lifestyles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend providing operators with more exposure to other parts of the business, be it projects, rotational positions, or pipelines to other departments.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Duke Energy.

    Interview Details

    You first take a 3-hour test. The first half is on data entry, and the second half is math. If you pass (which is difficult - out of 34 people, only 7 passed) you will be interviewed. There were two people doing the interviewing. The interview was fairly standard with questions like how to deal with a difficult customer.
