    USAF Direct Hire Authority

    I can tell you right now that none of the bases listed ever use the resume database to fill positions. 9 times out of 10, they already know who they are hiring when the position opens up. I've witnessed this personally and am a product of the direct hiring practice. They hire people that they...

    Transitioning Navy Controller

    I was at 150 days out when I applied. Got a TOL and now in the process of completing my clearances. Also, I submitted a statement of service signed by my commander as required. Good luck.

    March 19th 2018 Prior Experience Bid Is Open

    Couldn't care less really. If it's rescinded then I'll just apply again. Third time that I have applied to the FAA. I moved on with other ATC avenues (Contract Tower while waiting for a particular DoD position). If the FAA gets to me first, then great. If not, it isn't the only ATC employer out...

    It is Federal law requirement. Any Federal job that you apply for says this whether FAA, DoD, or even NAF. On another note, I applied while on AD and I was 150 days out from my DOS and my service letter signed by my CC was dated like 155 days out. I still got a TOL. Of course I am well within...

    ATCs Who Originally Did It Just for the Pay

    This. Locality will obviously be different in other places but in LA County, its 30% plus the 5% SSR ATC pay. GS-13 step 10 caps out here at $130K. The GS-14s here, in the $140Ks or 150Ks. Definitley at Center pay but without the crap schedule. But again, it depends on wheter money is most...

    Took me 13 months for the whole process.

    Medical Disqualification - Any Hope?

    Just to be a bit clearer, migraines are an auto DQ. You can still pass medical with a medical waiver for said migraines. I would know because this happened to me as well as with sleep apnea. Auto disqualified with a waiver appeal. Now getting the waiver is the trickier part. And in the OP's...

    ATCs Who Originally Did It Just for the Pay

    What's the debate then? Keep your current job lol. GS-13 pay is damn near Center pay depending on your step. Hell I work with a guy who was at Kansas City Center for 4 years and quit to work DoD as a GS-13 Step 10. He says his pay is the same but he works M-F 8:00 to 4:00. I would be hard...

    Medical Disqualification - Any Hope?

    It was the migraines imo. I know a few people with kidney stones and have Class IIs. Migraines on the other hand, auto DQ, even in the military. Even getting frequent headaches is a bit of a no-no when it comes to medical clearances. Hope you can appeal the decision and figure out what exactly...

    ATCs Who Originally Did It Just for the Pay

    Damn, you just described life as an ATCer in the military...minus the high pay but add all the other military responsibilities. You can live in Florida they said, you can travel the world they say...sike you going to bum fk Georgia for 5 years then on to Korea you go. I guess they were sort of...

    DENIED FOR ILLEGAL DRUG USE

    This. It's the recency they go by. Almost all Federal agencies as well as LEO will grant waivers if it was greater than 5 - 10 years since the last time. My question is, and it may be rhetorical, but if you haven't used since 2016, why on Earth would you admit to it if you wouldn't pop positive...

    Question About USA Jobs Resume Dates

    Hello. Sorry if this is a dumb question, however when applying for the experienced bid I noticed that the Aviator site says that we must ensure the following is on the resume: *start and end dates INCLUDING month, day, and year. When loading the dates into the resume builder, I could only list...

    Did they want to review your entire medical records because of sleep apnea? If so, my clearance will take forever......
