    thats the key... you were never unsuccessful until your sup terminates your training. you are just looking for a transfer. BUT I have a feeling this is all going away soon. With the changes in ERR's and District Managers on the lookout for people trying to bid out of training failure I...

    NEST

    As a CPC-IT at least you should keep it or at least go inside the new facilities band. We had a guy ERR out of here before they could wash him and he actually got a raise going back to a higher locality with CIP

    Nest List: AGC, TVC, RNO, YIP, SUS

    The guys at TVC sound awesome! very welcoming facility, great brand new tower. Gorgeous area(except winter) not big winter sports folk. But I love sailing and the beaches sound awesome. My girl is nudging toward AGC because she would like to work at UPMC Hospital and possibly continue to...

    Nest List: AGC, TVC, RNO, YIP, SUS

    I'm hoping someone from AGC shows up here. I have been trying to get in touch with the rep to talk about the facility but the NATCA directory has the wrong phone number listed.

    Nest List: AGC, TVC, RNO, YIP, SUS

    AGC does have some cheap housing withing bicycle range. the move would also cost one tenth of the move to Reno.

    Nest List: AGC, TVC, RNO, YIP, SUS

    Requested the I95 corridor between Richmond and Miami. I did put AGC on the list. But Reno is tempting, we really don't like snow.

    Reno does sound fun, But I worry how much it is going to cost to get out there... And do I want to move my family there prior to checking out... I know a lot of people love traverse city. the biggest problem is the winters, but Pittsburgh has the same problem.

    Nest List: AGC, TVC, RNO, YIP, SUS

    Anyone have any opinions about these facilities? If its your facility. I've been a controller for 8 years and this is my second facility, washed out on radar at level 7 up/down. I wanted to go somewhere warm and south like Richmond VA to Miami. But Reno is the only warm option...

    the biggest loss for me besides the career stagnation is going to be loosing my salary. I was able to get to my level seven on the 2012 contractual raise so I was able to lock in CPC pay. Which was good since with out it I was taking a pay cut to come here(CIP and locality at last tower) ...

    ERR Vs NEST

    Although there is nothing saying that once you are in the NEST process you can't apply for ERR's and BIDS's the District managers are stopping any of their managers from pickign anyone up in NEST status. If you think you may not get certified 100% try getting ERR's out there BEFORE your...

    NEST

    I'm not a big fan of the process. At least in my case. As a prior CPC who was assigned out of my CTI school to a level 5 tower I had difficulty getting a higher level facility to take me as I was from a low level tower. Now that I am washing out of that level 7 up/down the nest has no...

    Year Round Training at Seasonal Facilities

    it sucks at seasonal facilities. You need to somehow keep your proficiency up, I recently washed out of my facility, but coming into December I was getting all great training reports, got my second recommendation, three skill checks with moderate traffic that all went well. Then the...

    NEST

    If you still have time try an ERR or bid out. Also look into facility swap requests. Withdrawing from training still puts you into the NEST and you have no control of your destiny from there. We have had several people quit or ERR out of training prior to my "washout" In retrospect despite...

    After you turned in your selection did you get a few weeks to prepare or was it a next pay period thing?
