    August 2016 Tier 2

    I’ve sold homes, gone month-to-month on apartment leases and moved in friends all to be ready to up and leave when they called. They’re asking me stuff that I provided years ago. A medication I took for a short amount of time. Got a letter from my doctor saying I was on it, but not for the...

    August 2016 Tier 2

    My VA disability is about to go up taking me to over 120K a year. With that being said, today I reached out to the FAA med team and removed myself from consideration for the ATCS position. Good luck everyone, today's email from them was the straw that broke my back. Time to get on my with my life.

    August 2016 Tier 2

    Good call. I was just told my tier 2 was completed today, but I honestly don’t think I’m even going to take this job anymore. It hurts to say that because I work so hard in my 20s to get my CTO via the army, but I’ve literally been waiting since 2016 and life has changed, thus my decision...

    Good luck, it took me 18 months to get a T2 appointment, and Its been 6 months since I've seen the doctor again. I've herd nothing back from them so far.

    OTS July 2017 Bid TIER 2

    I was on a list as “missing paperwork“, but that list didn’t specify what was missing. I spent over a year sending paperwork to my POC, at their request, in hopes that I would eventually send them was needed. I wasted a year of my life doing that. As a result, I’ve been waiting for over two...

    First Assignment Out of the Academy

    I have a very old terminal TOL, but still debating if I should leave my current job if given a FOL. I understand assignments out of OKC are based on the needs of the FAA at the time, but can anyone recently out of the academy share the facility and level they were first assigned to? I am trying...

    August 2016 Tier 2

    Thanks, I am just trying to consider if I even want to do this job anymore, life has changed since I applied in 2016. I was given the terminal option so I think I would have another 3 more moves in 22 years before I can get into a tower that makes center money. It might be a little much for an...

    August 2016 Tier 2

    Yes, I had the appointment and then they wanted more info on a few things. They wanted further clarification on an event that took place almost a decade ago. I had to scramble to gather a bunch of stuff across two states to submit. Word of advice, if you have get your driving record and they...

    August 2016 Tier 2

    A full clearance could take over a year in some cases. I had several in while in the Army and despite being 20 at time of my first clearance, with no real background to investigate, it still took 7 months to get a full clearance. The whole point of an interim clearance is to not wait for a full...
