Inprocessing

Important notes for new hires: If this is your first nuclear facility, here are a few tips to make your training phase flow smoother. If you served in active military duty or discharged within the last 3 yrs and it was considered employment, you must provide a copy of your DD214. You will need names, addresses, phone numbers and dates of all of your employers, within the last three yrs. You will need a list of all of your residences, including addresses, for the last five yrs. You will need to list all arrests since your 18th birthday. You must bring the arresting paperwork and proof of court disposition. I cannot stress enough the importance of completing all security paperwork as honestly and as straightforward as you can. Omission on your paperwork is reason for termination of unescorted access.
 
Transportation Requirements:
It is required that each employee has their own transportation. If you have a issue I must know 2 weeks prior to your start date. If you show up with this issue, you will risk having a shift issue I can't fix.
 
Shift preference, requested SDO’s and special requests: In an attempt to accommodate everyone the best I can, I am requesting that you inform me of any special needs and/or requests. If you are traveling with someone and need to be on the same shift or you have other legitimate requests, please inform me at the earliest possible time of those requests. You can email me at marta.overstreet@exeloncorp.com, or call me at 815-830-2029. I will make every attempt to honor your request but as you know sometimes it may not be possible. Schedules are developed weeks prior to the outage and I may be unable to adjust, to meet your needs if I am unaware of them until your report date.
Important:
You need 2 forms of ID. One must be a valid government issued photo ID (Valid {NOT EXPIRED} Driver’s License, State ID, or Passport), and the other should be your social security card, or ORIGINAL birth certificate. Senior HP techs must take the Nuclear Utilities Fundamentals Exam (NUF) and pass with a grade of 80% or better, unless you are either an NRRPT “active participant”, or have taken the NUF within the past 4 years and passed with 80%. NRRPT and prior test results must be verified, so bring your NRRPT certificate with you, or know where and when you last passed the NUF, in case it is not recorded in PADS. If we cannot verify your status, you will be required to take the test about midweek.
Miscellaneous:
Hard hats and safety glasses will be provided, however if you have your own favorites, they are acceptable as long as they meet ANSI standards. Safety shoes are required and composite toes are preferred over steel toes for ease in processing through the gatehouse. No sneakers or open toed shoes are allowed. Work shoes must be worn during in-processing. Scrubs are provided on-site. Clinton does not permit you to bring your own scrubs or wear theirs offsite. Bank runs and other off-site errands will be very hard to accommodate during the first couple days of training, especially for non-returnees, as the in-processing schedule for those days is fairly tight.

Clinton C1R18

For all BHI Energy/Power Services folks coming to Clinton’s Outage, first let me say Thank you. My name is Marta Overstreet, and I will be the Site Coordinator for the outage. The report time is 0645 for your first day. The address is 8401 Power Road Clinton, IL 61727.
As you arrive, you will pick up a site inprocessing folder and will be directed to your first room assignment. In this folder, look for the purple training schedule. This will list all of your classes required prior to badging. Do not be late to classes; no late entries are accepted and you will have to re-schedule. This will delay badging.
I will be in the cafeteria with folders containing BHI Energy inprocessing paperwork. Please stop by prior to going to your first room. Most of our folks will have FFD scheduled right away, so plan accordingly. If you are going to be late, please call me, I will have my cell phone and will check messages regularly. My number is 815-830-2029. Reception is limited within the building.
The outage is scheduled to begin 4/30/18. The outage duration is approx. 20 days. During the outage we will work six twelve’s (72 hours per week).  Prior to the outage we will work five eight’s (40 hours per week) with limited overtime.

The use of cell phone cameras is prohibited on company property, or company sponsored events. Photographing and videotaping on company property must be in compliance with site security procedures. 
I will be assigning days off at Clinton.  Payroll is difficult at Clinton, once days off are assigned I do not plan on changing them.  Thanks for your cooperation.
 
Marta

PER DIEM CHANGES - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

​BHI Energy recently made changes to the payment method of per diem for eligible employees.  To assist you in understanding these changes, we have prepared the following answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). If you need further information or have any questions, please call the Payroll Department @ 800-225-0385

1)    If I already have Direct Deposit (DD) will my Per Diem (PD) automatically be deposited ?  YES
2)    Can I still elect to receive a “live” PD check?  PD is a non-taxable earning code on the weekly check.  It is no longer a separate check.  The entire check is paid either DD or live check, based on employee set up.
3)    Is travel expenses and/or travel day PD included as a DD?  For employees recruited out of the Piedmont SC office, travel is part of the weekly check (i.e., would be DD if employee is set up for DD).  For employees recruited out of the Weymouth MA office, travel continues to be a live check.  As we continue to streamline operations, we expect to have a consistent process by year end.
4)    Will cash advances be DDed?  Per Diem advances will continue to be a live check.
5)    Will bonuses/incentives be DDed ?  Bonuses will continue to be a live check.
6)    Can PD be DDed into a different account?  Employees are set up for one direct deposit account.  The entire check is DD into the one account in the employee record.  To ensure operational efficiency and reduced account maintenance and minimal direct deposit rejects, the limit is one account for DD.
7)    How will it appear on my stub?  The Per Diem is a separate non-taxable line item on the check.  The earning code (PD1) shows as a separate line on the check.  The number of days per diem, the per diem rate, and total amount shows on the check stub.
8)    Will my W-2 be any different?  The Per Diem will not show on the W2 earnings, as per diem is not taxable wages.
9)    Can I opt out of DD?  To delete DD, please email payroll@bhienergy.com requesting to cancel DD.  Please include name and last 4 digits of SSN.
