Journeyman Millwright (Former Employee), Tiverton OntarioDecember 10, 2013
Pros: if you worked above & beond (free meal tickets were given)
I learned Nuclear policies & procedures . Management was always there to help you with any part of the job, on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was driving thru the snowsqualls on some days. Most enjoyable was the team work from everyone. Very good bunch of guys to work with.

Great benefits, secure job, beautiful summers
Control Technician (Current Employee), Tiverton, NSNovember 27, 2013
Pros: mentioned in main body
Cons: shift work, winters, at least 2.5hrs drive to major city
Great work place, very procedure oriented as it should be. Very top heavy with management but it depends on what crew you are on. Downsides- Working shift, lots of training, housing costs, winter driving could be challenging. Upside is lots of vacation, time off for shift workers, good small town living, close to beach, winter activities, outdoor activities.

Young immature company with good compensation
Manager (Former Employee), Tiverton, ONNovember 4, 2013
Pros: salary
Cons: unprofessional
Salary is very competitive; most professional workers start near 100k.

I believe that most culture and values are recognized as a good thing to do but that the company has a long way to go to ingrain them.

Job security for senior management (Execs) is poor. For union represented employees, excellent.

Management/Leadership is poor. It is a company – more... largely run by technocrats with poor management and leadership skills. Engineers are more highly prized that MBAs, to their detriment.

Work/Life balance is good for union represented but over-all, poor for managers. If you work in the station it is worse that corp HQ. – less

Nuclear Operator (Former Employee), Tiverton, ONJanuary 7, 2013
In the nuclear industry, things move either incredibly fast, or rather slow. Most work is shiftwork for tradespeople and professionals - excellent overtime premiums and excellent benefits package.

My career was with OPG, Bruce Power was a 4 month contract
Assessor (Former Employee), KincardineAugust 15, 2012
Open e-mail and calender. Respond and prepare for meetings.
Review previous unwanted conditions and prepare corrective actions for minor problems.
Preform Apparent Cause and Root Cause for more serious conditions.
Prepare Power Point, Excel Spread Sheets and any Word docs as required.
Review Standards and prepare Management to speak to Regulators or – more... speak on their behalf.
Learned to listen and refrain from "knee jerk" decisions but ensure the issue is addressed and followed up to prevent recurrence.
Review OPEX from related groups and roll out identified issues to prevent occurrence at OPG.
Work well with co-workers and share informatrion as well as mentoring.
The hardest part is getting staff engaged with a Management initiative. I accept change easily and my function is to get staff to "buy in" and provide all the positive aspects and highlight the benefits to the company and themselves.
The most enjoyable part is the follow up, all corrective actions have been complete and no repeat occurrences. – less
