I worked for FirstEnergy for nearly 23 years, both at Perry and at Davis-Besse. In 2004, I was handed a severance package, take it or leave it. I took it.

I'm now working for a really professional engineering firm, about the same salary I was making at FirstEnergy, my blood pressure and health are back to normal, and I don't have to carry a damn pager or cell phone that was essentially an electronic leash, and I actually get paid for any overtime needed.

Would I ever consider going back to work for FirstEnergy? HELL, NO !!

They will need a thousand workers just to change that "cracked" Reactor head at Davis-Besse! This is the "SECOND TIME THE HEAD FAILED"!!!

Think they'll get it right this time???? Probab;y not - YOU'RE PAYING FOR THEIR MISTAKES!

You stupid idiot, you have no idea what you're talking about. STFU until you learn to speak the truth. All you do is blah blah blah and you're rarely correct.

Remember to post here how much your rate increases as a result of this head replacement, fool. Put up or shut up.

FirstEnergy does not want experienced workers. That's exactly why the employees that were handed severance packages after 10, 15, 20+ years with the company do not and cannot go back. Part of the severance agreement essentially bans the former employees from ever applying to FirstEnergy ever again. Why? The coprporation can hire two inexperienced kids fresh out of college and full of theory (and malleable) for every seasoned employee they let go. I was severed in 2004 after 23 years with the corporation, and I found out that my experience is very marketable to other utilities who don't have the same nazi management attitude as I experienced working for them. I'm not disgruntled one bit. In fact, looking back at it, I'm now glad I was forced to move on.
