    Cleveland Center - ZOB

    If anyone is familiar with ZOB, what are the facilities like? Is there a nice break room, gym/workout room, etc.

    I've been to Cleveland Center numerous times. I can't tell you much about the "inner workings" of the facility though, just cause I didn't really notice or remember it. I went past the break room/cafeteria once, and.....it looked like a cafeteria. haha

    The building itself is very old though, as are most ARTCC's.

    Got it fixed. One of the mods, possibly me, was watching Parks and Rec while moving the thread and wasn't paying close enough attention.
    Pan pan?

    Parents work there and i've been there a million times the work out room is down in the basement pretty nice, the building is old yes , but they have all new equipment in the control room which is amazing! During break there's a few things you can do depending on if your a guy a girl....girls either go smoke or go hang out in the bathroom and knit. the guys play world of war craft on their computers or go smoke. Of course there are other things to do like go workout but that's what i've mostly seen... but great place to work!!

    I toured this facility about a month ago - I asked about the standard week - and it sounds like you bid for your days off once a year. the trainees only bid against each other. I also asked about the washout rate, they said it was pretty low - i couldn't get a solid answer - but didn't wasnt to push the issue. trianing is about 2 years give or take a few months depending how fast you learn - they guys that gave me the tour said ot took him about 2 years. staffing- I have no idea
    morale - everyone seemed ok - but I was only there for a few hours

    This sounds good. I might be interested in going to Cleveland Center. I'm a Michigan guy but enroute really intrigues me. It's really the only center I'd be interested in.

    i talked with my dad (he was a controller at ZOB for 15 years) and he believes that 2 years in a row...they won an award for being 100% pass rate..not sure how long ago that was.

    Re: Cleveland Center - ZOB

    I just got redirected to ZOB and was told it would prob be about a year before a class date. I am VRA and was given a TOL in March of 09 to a tracon and got redirected about 2 weeks ago.


    I am looking forward to coming to work there eventually, I am DOD right now. Dont know much about the area but I am from the midwest.

    I grew up 10 mins from the center, I could probably answer most questions for you if you want.

    I've just received an invitation for an interview for a position at ZOB. Any information about the center and the surrounding area would be great as I've never been to that part of the country. I don't have any specific questions just curious what it's like there. From the replies in the thread so far it sounds like a good place to work.
