If you're going to work in the Nuclear Power industry you're subjected to a fairly comprehensive background check - and not just on initial hire either. Every five years they do it again. As bad as it was it's gotten worse since 9/11. We were all kicked out that day and sent home.

My initial took two weeks but I have a documented, solid work history. Yours most likely looked a bit more sketchy on paper; "Well, I played in this bar for two nights, did a gig in that one for a two month run" etc. They don't like that kind of gap in employment. At all.
I've worked in several nuclear power plants, and the clearance keeps getting stricter. That said, it's nothing compared to getting a Special Weapons Clearance to work on live nuclear warheads. They're serious about that stuff - as they should be.

They don't like debt either. Generally speaking, huge debt will kill most clearances immediately.

Correct. That and a bad credit score won't do you any favors.
