    I have been working at Entergy Nuclear full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary is quite good for the area, the people that I worked with at my plant were amazing: the best colleagues I've ever had, most management was approachable, I had very supportive immediate supervisors. Most people are very passionate and dedicated to doing a good job.

    Cons

    My experience was not typical and many other Entergy plants do not have the same work environment that mind did. The overall business plan is so "big picture" the top-level management has lost sight of the employees; I understand that this is a business and they need to make money, but to do it at the expense of employees is just not good business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate constantly with lower-level employees. Having upper-management only meetings does not get to the root of issues. Most lower-level employees don't feel safe talking to their managements, so issues are not going to com e through. You must reopen the doors to open, honest communication and accountability needs to go both ways.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Entergy Nuclear.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process at a nuclear plant is far more intensive than most people would be used to. There are lengthy security and reference checks, as well as tons of training. The interview itself is typicall "behavior based" questions like: "tell me about a time when you saw a safety issue and how you handled it?"

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time where you saw a process not being followed and you had to "coach up" to a high level person. (Meaning, you saw an issue and had to report it to management, who had no noticed, or changed the situation yet)   Answer Question
    Accepted Offer
