    Pros

    If you are allowed to work with management there are tremendous opportunities that they give you to grow your experience.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any major cons to the job except maybe the work hours, they have 10 hour work days.

    Advice to Management

    The main office in Pennsylvania should have a better line of communication with the other offices such as Charlotte office.

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay for entry level.

    Cons

    Nuclear is Different. Must follow Procedures. Everyone. must follow NRC Regulatory EPA Regulatory DHEC ETC.. I don't believe this is a CON. It can be stressful at times. It is Production Base Work. Mistakes and injuries are taken extremely serious. No Human is perfect . Task Driven Employee's needed.

    Advice to Management

    Take Time to learn your team members. Let them know they can trust you. Everyone just wants validation. Once you learn what your employee does well . Take it . Other Jobs they struggle with, Take Time with them. Earning Respect will help you do your job much easier. Do it Right! the First Time.
