Stupid question. How did you find this on the USAJobs site? Whenever I do a search all I get are either the FAA only openings or ANG or Army only jobs when I search under DoD. I've even just now tried filtering Dept of Navy only and still couldn't get this to pull up.

****Disregard---I figured it out. Need to click "Jobs for Federal Employees" in upper left corner****

Holy Shiza... And it's only a GS-10? Thanks for the info... Guess I could have been less lazy and searched it :)

My understanding is that the Navy pays GS-10 while in training once certified bump up to GS-11.

Im applying for this one, although i think i have too much time left in the Navy. Whiting Field was my last facility. They have two towers on the main base: one T34's (KNSE) and one Th57's (KNDZ)...yep all trainers. The two towers are less than a mile apart and the airfield layouts are a mirror image of each other. I was a FWS there in 09. It gets pretty busy during the summer and slows down close to the end of the fiscal year due to budgeting. The base is tiny... There is also another tower called Choctaw KNFJ that services Eglin AFB in addition to NAS Whiting and Pensacola. It is the slowest of the three. The base is about twenty miles from Pensacola,FL. Hope this helps..

Hard to believe that there are civilian openings here. I was a navy controller here from 96-00. Busy place. No civilian controllers then Maybe somethings changed. I loved the Pensacola area. But Milton is a little bit of its own world. It's small town, bible belt, peanut/cotton farms. Not like the touristy beaches of Pensacola. The nicest people in the world though. Pensacola is about 15-20 miles away. And the bonus, it's closed at night!

Not current in a radar facility either. What a load of crap.
You're tellin me. FAA AT10 under my belt, probably twice as much traffic as any navy facility ever runs. 7 years of combined time in civvie radar rooms (one small up down and a straight TRACON).

Congrats!
