      Sure the clearence will help you, because the background check goes pretty deep. Because of safe guards I cant really say where you be working inside the area.

        I can answer things related to benefits and mostly whatever else, Bama will have to handle questions related to Nuc Sec. I'm on the Police side of it so not sure of Nuc stuff.

        Just shoot me a PM, if needed.

            Training salary is low 23,500 but you get a jump after training to 27,800 ( something like that). Rumor is after 3 years you will top out. I just started so I cant say yes that true. I know the Union working to get us all a raise. Things are tight starting out but after training there a lot of OT. They trying to cut that out by hiring more people but people cant stand sitting and waiting.

              Yeah Dare helped me to understand the TVA way. Even before I step foot in Chatt, Tenn. .. I must tell ya that if you apply understand there contractors out there that seems to get the upper hand, BUT with that said I was not a contractor and I was hire. If you have anytime of exps in this line of work then apply. Not too offened our fine jailers I dont know if that counts or not.

              Apply and see what happens is all I can tell ya. Its a long process and a deep process so if you have question I dont mind answering them. I'm still learning so understand that to.
