Default Job inteview in Tampa

So yesterday was my last day at TVA. (RIF). I am flying down next week to interview at a power plant in Anclote (just 20 miles north of Tampa).
Anyone from the area?
Why would this be a good place to move to? or why not?

Thanks in advance!
Paul

Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel, north of Tampa. Mostly retirement communities but nice areas. Snowbird buddy of mine lives down there in the winter, visit him in Jan/Feb, coordinate my times for the Mecum auctions and the SE regional Corvette meet.

Ex-Navy "effing-nuke" here. What kind of work are the ex-nukes getting in the industry? Not looking for a change, just curious.

Ex Navy nuke here also. Operations and Maintenance mainly. I am in maintenance now. The power plant I am interviewing at is actually a natural gas unit. But was converted from oil boilers to natural gas boilers last year.

So it appears there are no big negatives to the area???

I will be there early next Weds 10/8 to scope the area out. Interview is Thursday morning.
