    I enjoyed my time there until they started workforce reduction.

    I worked at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance was awesome!!! We were able to work four 10 hour shifts per week, which was great due to the remoteness(miles per week driven to work) of the facility. Training was great. I still use some of the things I learned in training on my current job. Older engineers were great helping me get familiar with the areas of work and general 'real world' engineering. Cafeterias. Co-workers.

    Cons

    Being worried about job security is not a comfortable way to be at work every day. While I was there, they laid off 1,500 employees. I left after they were done with the layoffs because I didn't want to worry whether or not I will make it through the next round. If it were not for this, I would have continued my employment with the company.
    Salary freeze. Raises and promotions were not in the radar for me while I was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees know what the 'mission' of the facility is moving forward.

    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.
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview
