I understand things might change for the applicants but as it stand now, the vast majority of us were disqualified.

I also understand veterans pref isn't a golden ticket to federal employment and that the applicant has to be qualified for the job first before any preference is applied.

But right now it seems that the vast majority (if not all) of vet pref applicants were disqualified and if it stands it might be time to do a FOIA request to see how many vets applied and how many qualified. The FAA can't disqualify all vets and then claim to follow the law and apply vet pref to a pool of applicants that don't have any vets.

so, any vet pref make it in the first cut?

Yea this doesn't make sense..... I work with about 10 people who applied on this bid some have multiple CTOs and some are 10 pt vet pref. Not one that I know of has got selected. I'm sure it is either a computer glitch or the FAA is truly trying to "diversify" by placing people through the school house with no ATC experience.

this. give it a day or two before we make any assumptions about what just occurred in the last 12 hours. I feel the pain too, but it takes more time to put things into perspective correctly.

Air Force and DoD controller for 13+ years also with 5 Pts and no dice. It sounds like there is an issue with this announcement that is being addressed so cross your fingers and maybe things will change

10 pts vet pref, 6 CTOS and I still have a green check. I'm not taking this to the bank to mean anything though.
