Can't gripe too much because I was able to squeeze through on the Feb OTS bid but I would have liked to have made it on this next one. I have the 52 weeks with a CTO but will have to start at the bottom of the barrel in regards to pay. Oh well...I'll remain positive!

Well you can't quote me the exact number but starting pay in the past was around 37k for the CTO bid.

Hi, saw the new announcement on USA Jobs this morning. Can a retired FAA ATCS still under the age of 56 re-apply?

Heard 7,000 applicants to this bid in the first week. Seems really high as it was an experienced ATC only bid but maybe there were quite a few people who mistook it for the OTS bid and applied anyway.

I guarantee there are plenty of unqualified (and by that I mean literally never controlled anything) of applicants. That said, between mostly former military and DoD types there's probably a lot of people out there that are qualified and did apply.

To pair with that, I know the plan was to hire all qualified experienced ATC, however I don't know how that correlates with the huge amount of applicants. Again, I can only imagine there are an excessive amount of unqualified people who applied without reading the bid.

Guess were screwed yet again.
