Call the FACREP and ATM. If you're a qualified terminal type it seems ridiculous to make you wait while a new hire goes to school. Not that the FAA always makes sense. :cuss:I got picked on the Oct2010 panel. Going to SJC, one person in front of me who's still waiting for a class date. My HR rep said they cant bring me on until he leaves for the acadamy. So the earliest that can happen is 2nd half of fiscal yr 2012...
The way I read the ReinCPC bids, unless you were a CPC I don't think you're eligible under that hiring authority. You need to apply again under another authority (CTO, CTI, etc). Your pay is set at whatever you made when you left.Been out of the game for a long time now looking to return! I worked N90 for a year, washed out then got send up to ELM (talk about a night-day shocker). Anyway, Spent 7 months at ELM and was going nowhere there and at the time my wife was not willing to move up there. I haven't been able to get ATC out of my mind and decided I try and go back. Just not sure where to start. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated!
