i currently work at zfw...we've gone quite a way since we did away with the white book. we have a good group of people and the union will go out of its way to help its members out. it's a level 12 facility but traffic is down like most other facilities so right now is the best time to train (more time going over stuff while in sector instead of waiting until debrief where you forget some things). dallas & ft worth are both good areas and cost of living is pretty decent. the area i work in looks pretty staffed and we have a bunch of trainees...i'm not sure about the other areas. i'm not sure what kind of specific info you're looking for...but if you have any more questions feel free to post away here or send me a message either way.Looking for some info on ZFW. How does everyone like working there?
How was the transition to ERAM? I am interviewing for that facility. How many developmentals are there now? Would you know or can you find out how many people are waiting for a class date to get to OKC for ZFW? ThanksThere is 1 week of training for each employee, so we are talking roughly 1 year to transition the workforce from HOST system to ERAM.
Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it...as I'm sure others do too. Anything else you hear, feel free to pass on. I know there's atleast a few of us here that are anxiously waiting to get to zfw..REGGieSD:207635 said:here's the ZFW Union President's email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm sure he'll be happy to help with any questions.
As far as staffing, I can only speak for my area...we're losing quite a few people this year because we have a few retiring, and a few transferring out including myself. So they'll be hurting, we're supposed to get 3 D-side trainees within the next month or so from upstairs (training dept.). We are doing some area re-alignment, and I think 3 out of the 6 areas are getting/losing sectors...Our area (BYP) is losing 2 slow sectors & gaining 2 busy sectors, we were told our area is going to be working roughly 1/3 of ZFW's traffic once this happens.
Average time to make CPC is around 2 yrs. from what I've seen.
I hope that helps...I'll try and provide more info if I can.
