yup, I was there for four and a half years. great facility back then, I'm sure it still is. Good traffic, became dependent upon deployments of coure. I truely believe it is the best CTO the Marine Corps has to offer. Yuma being the second. Miramar has a great core of DOD civs, some working there are the best and brightest I've worked with. Tower in Bravo airspace with GCA, seven squadrons of hornets, eight squadrons of helos, one of c-130's, then c-12"s, c-560's, T-34's too. We use to get alot of pattern traffic form north island too, mostly S-3's and C-2's. If you're talking working as a Civ it's GS-13, that's great pay but realitive of course; high cost of living.

I have talked to others and hear traffic is down at all military field due to funds, what say you? Do any of the DOD controllers have to be accountable to un-qualified E-5s at any DOD fields or have you heard of this happing?

No they are not hiring any dod's. trust me. Its like the highest paying DOD ATC position there is i can think of. All of them make well over 100k. When i was there the OIC told me that he has stack and stacks of applications.
I know that their are GS-13 at Fort Rucker in Al. it is a Army field and they run twice what any other DOD field runs or so I have been told.
