Well, it's out. It does ask several questions about actual ATC experience both military and civil. Also asks if you're reinstatement eligible. Biographic assessment asks all those weird "do you think of your self as: A, b, C, D, E" questions. Reminds me of my first go-around with the agency.

Posted all this stuff here.

Additionally PM me if anyone wants the additional BIO assessment crap.

Useless thread is useless.

Useless thread is posted in reinstatement forum for discussion amongst useless reinstatements. Move along, nothing to see here.

One thing that's weird is that the announcement says you have to be specific down to the day with job experience but resume builder only submits month/year.

I am thinking (since reaching hr is probably impossible) that I might have to write in specific dates under the qualifications section. Its amazing the person setting the conditions has no idea how usajobs website works.

Yeah I was able to go back and resubmit my resume with dates. I doubt it'll matter, but damned if that wouldn't be the dumbest thing to get DQ'd on.

What I would like to know is if pay for former fpls is covered in the latest cba. I can't afford to take a position at ag pay like on bid. I'll be taking a bath leaving where I am now. Time to email some people.

Also who knows if faa is trying to get as much talent for the smallest price on this bid. Who knows we'll probably be back to old hiring by next year.

I could suck up the pay for a little while but I'm more worried about being offered some shithole AT6 tower somewhere. That would be a slap in the face.

What would be a slap in the face is... if you get a level 7 or 8 while that guy at the shithole 6 has been trying to err out of there to get the level 7 or 8....... it's all about perspective.

Did you voluntarily leave the agency and have since decided you want to return?
Yes. And before anyone blasts me about feeling entitled, I don't expect to get placed above CPC's looking to ERR up the chain. The truth in the agency is that not everyone wants to move up, and that many large facilities are badly understaffed. I would never expect to jump someone who's been waiting for years to move up.
