    New Air Traffic Control Hiring Rumor

    Re: New Hiring Rumour Its just tough to imagine someone who was in tech school for years getting a job over a person who actually did the job successfully for over half a decade. Not sure its a matter of personally disliking a person or a group of people.

    SERCO Hiring Process

    From my experience SERCO is pretty casual about their hiring process, the website is mainly used for getting your contact info and job history to the facility manager so he/she/he-she can start making phone "interviews". My advice is if you see an opening for a facility you would not mind...
