    FAA Hiring in 2015

    I've been informed by a reliable source that the FAA will be hiring in large numbers starting in 2015. Can anyone add any validity to this. Thanks.

    Hiring is hard to predict for the next few months, let alone all the way out to 2015. All I can say is that the FAA will need to hire people at some point...

    My advice is to not worry about what any reliable source may or may not say, apply for announcements when they come out, keep applying, and don't worry about what the current rumors/postulations/projections are. I don't see how anyone considers anybody a reliable source when the FAA itself can't even get and keep its own numbers straight, let alone let anyone within the organization or any prospective employees know with any kind of credibility what is going on.....

    May sound negative, but I'm just shooting you straight.

    With the FAA:

    Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you read.

    Not sure when, but at some point in the very near future they are going to have to hire quite a few people to keep up with retirements. I didn't hear this from any "reliable source" it's just the reality of the situation. Numbers don't lie.

    The other week on the FDIO a message popped out saying that ZLA was closing for the night due to being undermanned..

    So yea... at some point they have to start hiring.

    First, the FAA has no idea what its actual budget will be in February, let alone how much money it will have to hire in 2015.

    Second, what does "large numbers" mean to this person? We have a backlog of nearly a thousand people with TOLs. If all of them are hired this year but no new panels are held until 2015, is that a large number?

    It's not a very meaningful statement by itself. It may be true that we are losing a lot of people to retirement and the FAA would prefer to hire replacements, but that doesn't mean we will begin hiring in 2015 or any other particular time frame.

    Re: FAA Hiring in 2015

    I was told that they are no longer taking OTS, which I didn't know that prior rated military controllers were considered as OTS. Meaning no more VRA??? I guess the backlog of CTI people is insane and they are required to take so many of them which is the reason they won't be picking up any military guys. I wish I'd picked a different job had I known how ridiculous getting hired on the outside would be.
