    FAA Employment

    I currently know of 2 SSC's in my district that have expedited hiring authority for nav/comm/radar due to understaffing. So it is true. Sent from my SM-J337V using Tapatalk

    Security Clearance?

    New Common Principles not 2 months anymore

    Math refresher from an instructor that could show you step by step and answer questions helped me out alot. I never learned transmission lines and antennas in the navy, it was good having an instructor. ELMS courses dont help me learn at all. Just control F to get it done. Sent from my...

    Atss Vs Electronics Technician

    I am an ATSS and have worked with the ES(engineering services/0856) guys quite a bit when they installed our new IVSR voice switch. One of they guys on the project has a wife and kids, and his team was out of LA. He would come to Hawaii during the week, and then fly home every weekend. The ES...

    DOD vs FAA

    Nice! I'm happy for you. In my case I actually took a 3 grand a year pay cut from Air Force WG11 step 3 to G, then recouped my loss plus a few grand when I made H. The sad thing is my district seems to low ball. Even with my pay cut, I still make more then 2 of my fellow techs. Sent from my...

    DOD vs FAA

    I came from 3 years in the DOD to now 2 years in the FAA. I have made H band, and now I'm waiting for 1 year till I'm eligible for I. From talking to everyone I meet, the only way to make more money as an ATSS is to move up to an I band, or get an in and pay raise. As H's We are technically GS...

    Going to Alaska to get in the FAA.

    That's moving part is so true. That was my main gripe about hiring on to the FAA was paying for my initial move. We just sold all our stuff and shipped my truck to start from scratch. Sent from my SM-J337V using Tapatalk

    Going to Alaska to get in the FAA.

    Going to Alaska to get in the FAA.

    I'm not saying your wrong, but I'm in the western service area, and we are constantly getting H band announcements and details for numerous jobs in Alaska. Also, my current partner and just retired boss were in Alaska for 8 years and 4, and the consensus they had is that Alaska was a gateway...

    New Common Principles not 2 months anymore

    I think it has its benefits and costs. On one hand, being away from family for 2 months sucks, but I went home after the second month for 25 hours just to see my wife and kids then went back for the 2nd month. On the other hand, doing math and transmission lines and antenna radiation patterns...

    Going to Alaska to get in the FAA.

    The one problem I see in the FAA is that they cant hold you to your original SSC. It seems like a waste of money. I met 2 classmates that ERR d before they were even fully trained. What I do know is that the FAA is small, and if their original SSC managers want to hold grudges, they could...
