    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    This post has been at the bottom for a while! Anyone out there working at or heading to ZAU?

    Recently met with a facility manager at another center and he showed me the hiring numbers for all the artcc's for FY2012. ZAU was at the top for the year was trying to get some inside information to see how accurate this seems.

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    If that's true, which I HOPE it is, that is great news. However, why would a facility mgr already know FY12 hiring numbers, when our HR reps say it will be at least Aug before they come out? I sure hope there is some validity to it though. I have had a TOL for 2 years to ZAU.

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    First let me correct myself as I put incorrect information. It was the Training Manager at Jax Center whom I met with and when we sat down discussing hiring for the next year. He grabbed the paper for me showing me every center's projected hiring. It actually had exact numbers on it which I don't remember just the order of the first few: Chicago Center, Kansas City Center, Indianapolis Center.

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    Rumor has it that ZAU is supposed to be hiring 50 new controllers the next FY. Supposedly, none of them will be OTS. That's the latest we've been hearing on the floor at ZAU. I'll try and keep you guys posted on anything else I hear. Wish you the best!

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    I spoke with HR to see if they knew anything. Although they do not have numbers yet.. I was told they doubted that was true, because they could never meet the hiring quota of that magnitude with the people they have waiting right now, basically they would have to have multiple more selections to get enough VRA/CTI to fill the spots. I guess a lot of the people currently still waiting for ZAU are OTS, and they would have to re-direct them. HR did say that the facility did have the right/authority to request no more OTS, but doubted that they would at this time.....FWIW!

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    I spoke with the same training manager at ZJX, and also saw 63. However I keep in touch, and the numbers he receives are just projections, which are subect to change. The 63 did dwindle down to 40's last tme I checked. ZNY, However had a large 49 spots ; may be less now, but still with the top facilties in dire need for controllers for fy12... good luck!

    Re: Chicago Center - ZAU

    I've had a TOL for 2.5 years . They are supposed to take up to 48 this year.. If you are not in that group.. Hypothetically, you could end up waiting a long time like myself and others have had to do.. They seem to take a bunch at one time.. Then wait a couple years and take a bunch more.. We missed the cut last time they took a bunch and have held out waiting for several years now... check out the ZAU dates thread..

    If past performance is any indication plan on waiting 2-3 years. Hopefully things turn around for you guys, but I haven't seen any increase yet.

    so is it safe to say they get a bunch of zau people together for class dates every 3 or 4 months?

    EDIT: astats87 doesn't know how to log out of my account before posting. I don't really care about ZAU, no offense.
