    I have been working at CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, and excellent safety culture.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of DOE work it can be slow at times. That has nothing to do with the company, just the nature of the beast for this type of work.

    I worked at CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people to work with for the most part, though it takes a while to break into their circles. Trailer kitchens have refrigerators, ranges, and sinks, and usually restrooms. Tri-Cities: Some pretty areas near the rivers. Plenty of restaurants, gyms, homes going up. There is a mall in the Tri-Cities.

    Cons

    Start time is 5:45 a.m. for just about everyone, and the heavy traffic jam in and out of the site reflects that. No matter whether close to Richland or out by the north end of site, pay is for the time arriving and leaving your assigned location, and there may be a 30-mile difference. 4-10 hour days/week which leads to groggy workers starting before the sun is up. Most are obese. If you are not a direct (green badged) employee of PRC or another prime contractor, and the site closes for bad weather, etc, you won't get paid. Site is gravel with uneven walk areas, trailers to work in, and some buildings left which may be torn down, yet. Little signage to help find buildings. No shade since everything plant-wise is killed. Subcontractors (black badges) are let go with no warning. Jobs are unstable. Some supervisors are stretched too thin. Poor decisions and poor oversight at the Plutonium Finishing Plant which let contamination loose a few times causing relocation of workers to other trailers and work disruption; DOE shut work down for several months later, only to restart with the same procedures. PRC Ethics officer apparently had no idea of what ethics was and talked about exercise and conditioning instead at all-hands meetings. No Candlewood Suites, so you are stuck with hotels or apartments or houses.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better. They have long memories, and it will affect your staffing in the future. Advice to potential subcontract workers--ask for more than you think you will need and get a contract--especially for bad weather or breaking your lease if let go. Words are forgotten and broken easily there.
