    Any Proposed Annual Pay Increases?

    New to the FAA, and I know the FY2016 starts in October. FCT's generally see their inflation adjusted for COL in November, does the FAA do anything similar? Even if it's just 1%, and if so, when does it go into effect?

    If a Woman Gets Pregnant As a Contract Controller...?

    So I was having this discussion with a coworker. I thought that the Contract Towers had a special set of rules that employees had to adhere to. While I was employed at a FCT I was under the impression if I'm ever out of the job for illness or something, I have to be back to work before all my...

    Trouble Logging into E-QIP, Ideas?

    I'm a contract worker currently and had to login and set up an e-QIP account last year. Here I am several months later trying to login again and it is not letting me, so I go to password retrieval and it's not recognizing my username.

    Just Got Hired, Advice on What to Study?

    Hi, I was just picked up by a contract tower and will begin work in about two weeks. Once that first day starts they've told me I have 30 days to qualify, and from the looks of it there is a bit more information and procedures at this tower vs what I was accustomed to when I was in the military...

    Contract Tower Pay 2014?

    I know there are a few of these threads already, but they're very old. I was only able to find the estimated pay for 2009. I've heard RVA pays the most, something like $33 an hour I think, how about Serco and Midwest?

    So I am in the stages of applying for jobs at Serco. I've never applied to Serco before, and the user interface and some of the methods for applying escape me. I think I've done everything correctly but on the second to last step, "Complete Application" it says in bold red letters, "The...

    Question About RVA

    I see that on RVA they say that you must have had a CTO for 2 years, just wondering if there are any exceptions or waivers to this requirement? I currently have 2 CTO's.

    So I have applied to several DOD jobs, a few have closed within the past few weeks; the application status says reviewed, but nothing else. Do I just keep on checking the application status? Or should I be waiting on a phone call or email soon? Just wondering what to expect.

    How Early Out to Apply for DOD?

    So generally speaking how early out should you apply for a DOD listing? I think there will be some DOD openings at my current facility and my EAOS is October 27th. I also believe that since DOD is a government position, you CANNOT begin working it while on terminal leave, so I will have to wait...

    How Early Out to Apply?

    I am considering all three of the big Contract Tower companies, Midwest, Serco, and VRA. I would prefer Midwest since their airports are generally in the midwest and a few southern states, but will take anything I'm able to get. I'm currently in the Navy, my EAOS is in October, I have 2 CTO's...

    Will an Expunged Record Be a Problem?

    Currently in the U.S. Navy. I believe I was only accepted into the Navy with a waiver, because I do have an expungement on my record. Will an expunged record be a problem when applying to DOD, FAA, or Contract Towers? Is it only criminally charged felonies they are looking for? Misdemeanors...
