It's extra lousy because I guarantee that for probably 80% of the towers on that list the competition to move to a higher level facility is going to be very high for years to come.

Man these lists are dismal, what's with the huge differences in choices you military folks are getting?
Experience level. Recent lists seem to be for people strait out of the military. Those with military plus contract tower or DOD are getting level 7-9 up down facilities. Those with previous TRACON are getting the centers and stand alone TRACONs.

5 years experience in military.
1 year experience at contract tower.
Only offered 5s and 6s.

I don't believe there is a rhyme or reason besides the luck of the draw in some instances.

Guess I should have specified state side contract towers.

Two former coworkers of mine in the military got picked up and were offered 7 up to 9s. Straight out of the military with no experience in DoD or contract of any kind.

Exactly. Like I stated before, although there may be certain guidelines that may be followed based off of your experience I feel that it's still based off of the needs and timing of the FAA.

I've had coworkers that have less experience than me at the same location, minus my contract experience afterwards, and they still got higher options.

All military are getting 5's-7's. Some bases, excluding Army, are getting 8-9's. There's about 4 or 5 Air Force bases that are getting offered 10-12's. From what I've seen these are Tyndall, Eglin, Nellis, McGuire, and Grand Forks AFB. Except for one of my friend picked up on the OtS bid all my former coworkers at Tyndall are now at 10+ facilities including SoCal, Denver Tracon, Potomac, Miami tracon, and NY Tracon.
