I was able to work in many different fields ranging from Technical, Instruction, Programming and Operations.
I spent the last 17 years at Darlington Nuclear Power Station in Operations, on shift.
Learnt to multitask and prioritize items.
Shift work requires one to work all hours and be as alert and safe as one can be.
Technical, dynamic and important job.

Great pay, not a place for eager individuals
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON18 November 2017
OPG is a great place to work if you want to make a lot of money and learn a lot about power generation. If you're an eager, success-driven kind of person, OPG may not be for you. The OPG team functions very slowly, and when you work too fast, you're told to slow down to keep pace with the team, even if your work quality exceeds expectations. This is true regardless of what area of the company you work with.

Working with OPG can be the best job in the world if you're able to easily find fulfilment outside the workplace.
Pros
High salary, safe, low-stress, relatively easy
Cons
painstakingly slow pace
