    Question for current DOD?

    If you are in the IRR still can they not hire you? And as long as you have an honorable discharge you are good right?

    Any more companies for ATC???

    I recently found out that I am also one of the suckers that has to wait until the next fiscal year for my job. Are there any more companies that offer ATC employment that I dont know about? I know that there is Serco, Midwest, RVA, KBR, Dyi, DOD (that's a slim chance), and of course the good old...

    This might clear up some things, its what i aimed for.

    I pretty much agree. I have been waiting for about 11 months now and who knows how many more. Overall though this job is worth it and if you have another offer somewhere else that pays as well, has good benefits, and is just an enjoyable job that you can brag about than by all means take it. If...

    Atlanta PEPC School Date

    I don't know why mine is so far away but it is what it is. I was told it was because of the faciltiy I am going to, DTW. She told me it all depends on that, your facility. Something is better than nothing I guess and I am still happy, well see how I feel in another month or so though.

    RVA Openings?

    From what I have heard from my friend that went and worked with RVA and then went to DOD after about three days (it was that bad he said), you just pick your three and then when they e-mail or call you they will let you know if those three are available and if not tell you what is close to those...

    TOL change, school news, job now.

    I really dont. I was also thinking maybe Robinson Aviation or something like that. I just dont like sitting idle for too long doing nothing. FAA says 6 months and next thing you know it's been a year.
