The NEST meeting scheduled for October 7, 2013 to address unsuccessful training packages has been postponed until sometime after the end of the government shutdown.
I heard they're looking at mid November, but it's too early to know for sure.While we are on this subject, does anyone know when the rescheduled NEST meeting (originally Oct. 7) will occur? I know its the first day of the govt grand reopening, but any help will be great. My NEST meeting has been pushed back twice now. Once due to lack of information (which led to a delay sending my package in), and second because of the shutdown. I've been sitting since 15 Aug. Thanks in advance!
So far I haven't heard of anyone being let go. In fact, it sounds as though more people are being reassigned. There is simply an extra step that considers a training failure's retainment based on demonstrated abilities and not just the word of their supervision. NEST reassignments are slowly leaking into the system and there will be many more once the backlog is worked through.Anyone who went through the NEST could share their result?
As you all hear back, please post here so any interested parties have an idea when info is coming down and what the results are. Negative or positive results welcome. Thanks in advance.I had heard that there were a bunch of people terminated in the last NEST. Not a majority by any means, but several people.
For any interested parties who didn't get an update, today is day 1 of the NEST meeting. I was told that they're doing 3 days this time instead of 2 to try to make up for everyone who didn't get reviewed last month.
http://terminaltools.faa.gov/dtrb/ there are 73 facilities nationwide levels 5 & 4. The vast majority of these do not have a staffing need, but do your homework. I have been in contact with some who are nearly 50% staffed! Possibilities still exist.Good luck, there isn't many options below a 6.
You're definitely not getting fired before Thanksgiving, if at all. I don't know your specifics, but if the very worst should happen, it would be well into the new year, simply because everything in govt. grinds to a halt over the holidays. If you want, you can PM me the things you are having specific troubles with and hopefully I can help. Otherwise, post them here and you'll have more people who hopefully help, not hinder the problem. All the best.Getting fired right before thanksgiving. That'll be awesome.
