Wow...so of the 1700 hires they need, approximately half off previous experience bid. That leaves about 850 for 2015 plus 1500 for 2016, so 2,350 to be picked up from march 23rd bid. That's about 50% of people who passed bio Q.

Make a note young one... The CWP made no provisions for the experienced bid. The experienced bid is a stop-gap measure.

Was just contacted by an investigator to go over my paperwork. Was in the first batch of TOLs...

I wonder how long it takes to get cleared after meeting with them...
I was at the academy before I got a call for a meeting with the background investigator. Even then they waited over a month for me to show up at my facility before they did the sit down.

What does that mean? The CWP has 3,275 getting hired in 2015-2016. Are you saying that the experienced bid is in addition to the 3,275?

They just announced that they are only hiring 700 from the OTS bid and the next bid won't come out until 2017. The 3,275 number was including tech support and other FAA related jobs.

Really? I was inclined to believe it was in the 1700's...

I'm also inclined to believe that unicorns fly in our windows at night and sprinkle fairy dust on us to make us believe we are getting facilities and FOLs at some point.
I am inclined to believe the telephone to my left and that the Russians are not in Ukraine.

why is an "airman" working at a naval air station?
E1 = Airman Recruit
E2 = Airman Apprentice
E3 = Airman

This is true of any Navy enlisted sailor who is involved in aviation.

The 3 that I know of are Seaman, Airman, and Fireman depending on what your job is in the Navy. Believe it or not they do have Naval Air stations where they abide by 7110.65 and such.

The fourth is Constructionman. Blue stripes. I was at NAS Kingsville, NQI. That place sure as hell went by the 7110.

I talked to another one of you guys from NMM. He knew AC1 (now Chief) Tredway who came from NMM to NQI. I worked with him at NQI. He was good people. I did NQI from 2007 to 2010.
