I worked at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)
Job involved frequent technical challenges with a wide variety of topic areas. Never boring and many opportunities for change if desired.
Due to the sheer number of employees at the site, the commute can be challenging. Opportunities for carpooling are many and encouraged by management.
Advice to Management
Because of the government based funding, most projects are fiscal year based. Every effort by management to share longer term vision would help keep employees engaged.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC).
It was a panel interview. The interviewers were very professional and courteous. I have no issues with the interview process.
If you search "SRS aging work force," you'll get many articles with comments such as "The site’s aging workforce has been a constant concern, according to reports released in December that within three years, up to 50 percent of the SRS environmental workforce will be eligible for retirement." Just because it is a problem does not make the solution of age discrimination legal. Of course I could be wrong and all the articles about their"fear of the aging workforce" does not affect their hiring decisions at all. Matter of fact, I most likely am. Congrats to everyone hired.
