    Pros

    The people at SRNS are great. They are the number one reason to work at SRNS. The cost of living is this area is also extremely low, and the benefits are very good. This should be taken into account when considering a position here.

    Cons

    The age structure is very skewed toward the older side. Advancement structure seems very rigid with little opportunity for quick promotion. Paying your dues in time on site seem important to SRNS. Compensation is mediocre compared to the market. No incentive pay except for exec level, and salaries just keep up with the market due to decreased DOE funding. Salary increases are looking grim. Thank the Obama administration for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for faster advancement by the younger employees with demonstrated ability and commitment. Incentivize new hires with higher offers. The staff aug situation has really backfired on you after keeping them for much longer than needed. It will be hard to rehire them full-time with offers at 60% of what they used to make. Really sell the fact that benefits are great and the cost of living must be factored into the salary.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Received phone call after applying (months later) for on-site interview. Travel was arranged for me. Dinner the night before interview with an engineer then interview the next morning, including tour of Site. Received an offer about a month or so later. Overall, great experience. Only negative is the amount of time it takes for anything to get done.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult. They want to see if you're a person they want to work with on a daily basis, not how many formulas you remembered from school.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Did not negotiate. Offer was fair, and I'm not sure if there is much negotiation allowed with these positions.
