Who wants a SIX FIGURE (gov) job?
 

 
Itís a rare opportunity to get a six figure job within the federal government with a lot of good benefits. The FAA is hiring for Air Traffic Controllers. If you get selected they send you to school in Oklahoma to learn your speciality while getting paid and per diem. Itís a good opportunity, Iíve been doing this job for a minute and you live a comfortable lifestyle. I donít worry about money at all, Iím able to help family and I still take vacations a couple weeks a year.

You have to be 30 or under. Must have 3 years of continuous work experience, OR Bachelors degree or higher, OR military experience. Any one of things will get you considered. If selected from the application process you have to take a test called the AT-SAT (I think thats what its called) that covers basic math and reading skills. They also do a psych evaluation and you have to be able to pass a background check.

Depending on the facility you can make six figures up to exceeding 200K if you live out in California or New York. You get 26 days of vacation plus a separate sick leave days, federal holidays off or time and a half, TSP(401K), PENSION, healthcare, etc

Someone else put me on to this job and my goal is to make sure someone else who might not know this opportunity exist gets the same chance. If anyone has any questions about the career field let me know and I will answer them. Job closes soon so donít wait if youre interested.

2-4 months depend if you are tower or en route and background. You might have to attend atc basics before you start a speciality class.

You have to be 30 because there is a mandatory retirement at age 56 for all air traffic controllers. In order to meet the criteria for retirement you have to have 20 years of service and be age 50 OR you can have 25 years of service and retire at any age. The pay listed is based on the academy and everyone makes the same until you get to your facility. They do pay for your food and housing in Oklahoma so the pay is a little skewed if you just read off that announcement. Also itís temporary until you pass your one year probation period. I think most federal jobs require you to have a one year temp status. As long as you show up to work and do your job the temp status doesnít mean anything. Iíve never seen anyone get fired or anything during their temp time. You automatically become permanent after 1 year. The academy eats up 2-5 months of that temp time anyway.

I can attest that most gov't jobs I've seen have that 1 to 2 temp period and if they like your performance it becomes permanent.

Just an example, you can live like a king in Houston on just the minimum salary. People retire millionaires in this job and some live like kings. One of my good friends has an Audi R8 and lives in a penthouse in Miami.

Donít do it!! I mean if you want the career go for it but if you want just the money, consider being locked in to a SUPER TIGHT schedule with limited time off, Micro-management, and annoying coworkers.


Now if you can deal with all that, you might run into a Baddie or two in the office.

My dude, Iím not micro-management at all. I come in do my thing and go home. I spend most of my days on break on the internet or playing basketball outside and in the 7th hour I take my last break to ďget readyĒ to go home. Total I work maybe 2-3 hours a day and get paid for 8. Not to mention I havenít worked a holiday since Iíve worked for the FAA and I go on vacations throughout the year. Plus I take a ďmental healthĒ sick day when I need that extra long weekend in Mexico or the Caribbean. Youíre schedule is bid every year but youíre always guaranteed 2-3 days off a week and you can take all the vacation time you are going to earn in the year. Plus your time off carries over every year if you donít burn it all.

AlsoÖthere are VERY FEW baddies in this career field. Itís mostly a career field of white dudes. I know all the black people I work with and at facilities nearby and most of us are part of the Black coalition of federal aviation employees. I would love to see other minorities get opportunities in this career field. Even if you donít want to be a controller, get your foot in the door and move up to other positions. Become a manager or a training specialist or work in DC, there are way more opportunities once you get in the door.

If anyone is interested here is the website for other black aviation employees.

For me the most stressful part was the training. I heard this job was stressful before I got it too and I had no idea what to expert. The training isnít easy and you have to put the work in the learn the stuff but they wonít ever let you cause serious harm to people or planes. Itís rare for something like that to happen but they wonít just give you a manual and then trust you with working live traffic on your second day. The training process total including the academy is atleast 2 years long.

You get pay raises during those years and your money keeps going up. By the time you get to the end of the training process you will be so comfortable with everything it will be routine for you. You are contractually not allowed to work more than 2 hours at a time. You have to be given breaks and a paid lunch all within 8 hours. I work an average of 20-30 minutes before Iím given a break but you can chose to keep working longer. Most people take advantage of the breaks to do other things like school work, stock trading, workout, play video games, and a bunch of other stuff. Breaks are usually 30 minutes to 1 hour long.

Emergencies can happen and sh*t happens sometimes with people flying aircraft but you always have someone there to help you out. Iíve been in some situations when I had a group of people helping me help a pilot land a plane with no engine. It can get crazy sometimes but thats rare and most days are routine. I donít take anything home with me when I go home. My time off is my time off.

That is news to me, but there are a lot of people that like to drink and party so we have a lot of alcoholics. Havenít know of anyone that has committed suicide or heard of anyone since Iíve been employed.

Don’t sleep, get your paperwork in even if you think you might not want the job. It’s always easier to turn it down then want it later. I want some BX members to hoop with at work.
