: : I believe I will be interviewing for an entry level boiler operator job at a large university.
: : I did six in the Navy where I was a nuclear power plant operator making the steam side go. I also did a couple years at a city power plant as a mechanic. This was over ten years ago though so I'm a little rusty.
: : This is probably no simple question but can anyone give me some guidelines as to what questions are asked at these interviews.
: : It is a coal burning plant, makes steam for the buildings as well as generates some electricity.
: : I'm not trying to snow these guys but I would like to at least not sound stupid. I've got the Steingrass book on HP Boilers. Also the Russell book on questions for the license test. But there is a lot of info in here and I'd like to narrow my studies down so that I can give a good interview, get this job, and start a new life in a new part of the country after the nasty divorce I just went through.
: : Thanks for your help.
: Just relax...The navy has the best training in boilers anywhere. Get an Audel book or a boiler manual and cram a little bit. The fact that you are a veteran will help. Especially at a university. Don't wear red! lol...they interperet people who wear red as know it alls and control freaks...believe it or not. I was told that by an interviewer. Just be yourself and be polite. You should be alright. These will be water tube boilers more than likely. REad up on them. Good Luck
