      The pay is good if you are an engineer but don't like to do actual engineering. The management is so inept and clueless, they think collecting as many review signatures on any document and making sure all rev numbers are correct is more important than actually getting work completed. This is a big reason why the project at VC summer failed, which led to Westinghouse filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.


      Management is clueless on modern engineering practices. This cannot be more evident in their failed AP1000 project. Instead of using modern computer programing, they used software better suited for the Antique Roadshow. Case in point: All flow modeling for the nuclear safety systems was done using error filled excel files, rather than modern fluid modeling programs. They also used archaic project planning software for a nuke plant build, which the owner of the failed VC Summer project listed as one of the causes of the project's failure. Management is also seems to be sketchy in their practices as the customers at the VC Summer project claimed that Westinghouse Senior Management hid progress on the project and would only feed them tidbits of project data, only to change them later. And now there is talk that the pension plan, that a lot of retired workers rely is in real danger of collapsing. On top of that, management will ask you to work 50 hrs and only pay you 40 (see many of the other reviews on here about that). So if this is the management that you want to work for, then yes, Westinghouse is the place for you! This is a bankrupt company in a dying industry. Because WEC management fumbled things up so badly, there probably won't be another nuke plant built in the Americas for another 30 years.

        Salary and Union positions all high pay.


        Stress levels are high and problems consistently repeat themselves.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Project Manager

      I interviewed with a company (2 interviews of 1h each) more than 15 days ago. In the company's portal my application shows as "in progress" and I haven't heard back from anyone (HR or interviewers). Is this normal?



      When sending a post interview follow up email to a hiring manager, is it appropriate to address the manager by first name, or is it more appropriate to use Mr. or Ms. X (assuming they have not invited you to address them informally and that their gender identity is clear)

      How do i phrase it on an interview why I'm leaving my current employer after only 4mos due to not being comfortable with the company ethics on how they handle some things? The only reason I am mentioning my current employer on my resume is I want to apply for the same position at a competitor I know is more ethical (confirmed by employees). I don't have much background in this position so I feel putting it down is important when I normally would not for positions held for less than 6 months.
