EVP: NNI is a subsidiary of HII, making it a few well known and reputable company. What they are doing is really neat and something being talked about in the industry. They are working on a project for CB&I to build nuclear reactors to be installed in GA. Vogtle (the plant in GA) is the first nuclear plant since 1974 to be approved by the NRC to build a new nuclear reactor. This is exciting for the industry and well known throughout the nation, making NNI a very well respected company to work for. With it being nuclear work, there will likely be a learning curve for all candidates b/c they will need to learn new regulations and quality standards associated with the NRC. They are HUGE on safety.
