Haha thank you for the light chuckle of a very mundane afternoon at work.
It says so in the email about scheduling the test...Quick question, during the math section, is it all mental scratch pad math or can we bring calculators or are we provided them? I'm using the atcprep.com site and I'm not sure if I should practice with or without a calculator but some of the problems seem pretty difficult to not have a calculator to solve. Thanks.
What were these "imposed work rules" that caused you such hardship in performing the duties of an Air Traffic Controller? Did these rules impair your ability to provide a safe, orderly, & expeditious flow of air traffic?It's spelled guaranteed. And you don't have to take the job if offered. Please don't. Although I am suspecting that you have a cti degree and will be jumping at the opportunity if you ever get it.
Anyone that tells you that they would do this for free never controlled under the imposed work rules. At the end of the day, you still have bills to pay and mouths to feed.Its a job.
It means congratulations for finishing the test...
Not to try and be a life coach here but ATC is a job you really need to be passionate about and you sound the least passionate about it. It can be very stressful and you'll work odd and varied hours. If you're not passionate enough to overlook that and/or have other priorities, then perhaps it is not the job for you.
I'm also an OTS candidate and I'm not the least bit worried about what people will think of me because of how I was hired. I'm confident that, if given the opportunity, that how I perform on the job will speak more to how I get treated. If I suck, people will treat me as if I suck. If I do a fine job, people will treat me as such.
As for salary, what exactly are you expecting? It lists exactly what the base pay is (plus locality). How exactly is it a recruiting tool? The base salary is nothing to brag about.
