    Matt, Right now there is only one slot open. It’s an up/down position. Normal tower stuff and a small approach/range control and final control. It is highly likely that in a few months there will be some more openings. Feel free to ask me anything more specific that you might want to know...

    Sorry man I just saw this. After you get through school at Pensacola, you will be assigned a duty station based on the needs of the Corps. Your mentor will come to you sometime in block 2 and ask you for your preference. You'll list in order east coast, west coast, or over seas. Your...

    Regarding the re-referrals, HR made a mistake and sent them out again. Selections have been made and accepted. If you're really trying to get here you'll have to wait until the next opening.

    That's weird since all the selections have been made and accepted. Someone must have gotten tired of the hiring process and dropped out.

    Yes Sam is still here. I wasn't trying to be cryptic, I know of one air force guy that didn't get selected and one Marine that did not get selected. I don't know of anyone that is both.

    It depends on how fast the facility gets the list to Hr and how fast Hr processes the list. Right now the selections have been made by the facility and sent on to Hr. You're just waiting on them to process and make notifications. I only know of two names that have been denied for sure. One...

    We have alot more than 300 ops a day. Also we are just a GCA not a tracon. The idea is to reduce manning and have everyone work up/down. Supposedly in the long run it will reduce costs.

    Yes MG I was answering you. You got that waist down thing backwards but i'll forgive you. I have no intentions of applying for the radar chief slot. According to KG the announcement should be out soon. You know how that goes though.

    Depends on if anyone leaves or not. They are hiring 8 off of this announcement. We have been authorized to go up to 125% manning but who knows whether or not they will be hiring then. An a different not, they are finally going to release the radar chief announcement soon as a 13.

    15 Q in the Army

    Talk to the Marine Corps or Navy. The Marine Corps won't guarantee you ATC but the Navy sometimes does. Any branch is better than the Army for ATC. It is true that the Army only allows its controllers to do tactical type training. There is a plan in the works to send soldiers to ATC...

    DoD Openings

    I can tell you that most places already have people in mind when they put out a job announcement. However, if you see a place that is constantly advertising, then its a good chance they are hurting for people and will consider any and all applications. What brew said is absolutely true to a...

    I would say somone with multiple ratings would have a good shot. I'm sure several people out there have Greg's number. I just won't be the one that puts it out there. I know how annoying it is to try and get some work done only to have perspective applicants calling and trying to get in good...
