Another six figure (gov) job opening
 

 
I know a few of you jumped on it last time I posted but just wanted to give another heads up they are going to do another round of hiring. If you’ve seen the news about airline delays and stuff, it’s also partially due to Air traffic controller staffing. We need to a lot of controllers just to fill the upcoming retirements. Check out my last thread which has a lot of answers to the typical questions or just let me know.

Just a few highlights:
Have to be 30 or younger to get hired unless you have military experience.

No air traffic control experience required, they will teach you everything from the ground up and pay you to train and go to school

The application process takes forever and you might not get picked up on the first try

Applications are accepted June 24-27

If you are interested, get your application in as soon as it’s open, don’t wait. It’s been almost 3 years since the last bid.

I’m not a recruiter, just passing on info so maybe I can get some co workers I like.

At the academy is minimal but they pay for your housing and food expenses. Once you graduate at least $50k until you progress through training. Your salary ultimately will depend on the facility level, locality, CIP, etc. For example a newly certified person at a big facility in Atlanta will make $145k vs a newly certified person in San Fran making $170k. From day 1 academy to fully certified controller takes average about 2-3 years.

Itís worth it, youíll never be worried about money again and most people I work with own vacation homes, boats, pay for their kids college in full. Itís a good money and a stable career with a pension.

Yeah unfortunately, unless you have military atc experience. Lots of other government positions without age cutoffs though. Federal government is one of the last still paying pensions and you can get one I think after only 5 years of fed time.

I’ve been an Air Traffic Controller in Miami almost 6 years now. Best job ever made about 175k last year. Airplanes will always fly so job security is high. Best kept secret in federal government. You get to retire at 50 with a full pension and it’s not really stressful like the media makes it out to be. I work about 3-4 hours a day. The rest of the time I’m on break playing xbox at work and lurking on boxden.

You can have a face tattoo if you want as long as they arenít racist or offensive they can be displayed. Wear whatever you want to workÖwithin reason too. And you can bring a wife and kids but most people usually stay at an extended stay apartment or hotel. They donít pay extra if you bring family. Training is about 2-5ish months depending on your speciality.

I donít know anyone that is stressed out in this job. I work my planes take breaks, chill, watch tv and workout all while getting paid. When I put in my 8 hours Iím done. I donít take work home, I donít even think about air traffic. For me this is the least amount of stress Iíve ever had in a job. Iím financially set, I donít have to worry about a layoff, I get paid vacations. I think the stress thing is relative. Maybe some people just naturally stress out at work in general but I canít speak to that, I can only speak on person experiences.

Same with my job.

Before I retired from the USAF last year as a 'MSgt/E-7' I was stressed the fu*k out, long a*s hours and a lot more Bs to deal with in general lol.

Now with this GS-9 position doing the "office" part of what I did before. I leave when my day is over, no calls or texts while i'm home, no stress, the people in my office are cool as fu*k most of them are retired too.

Not to mention my retirement bread and more bread with this job. My wife has an accounting job she makes good money also. We have a young son.

And I'm not even going to go into the materialistic sh*t because that can all be gone tomorrow. But we definitley live comfortable but we stay humble most importantly.

I love this sh*t lol...

Yeah thatís the way to do it. The federal government is a great way to make money. Private sector companies will make you take work home require you to work 60 hours a week and show you no loyalty. Pension doesnít exist in most of the private sector. Congrats on the retirement though, thatís a lot of bread to have coming in.
