Enjoyed working for FAA. Unfortunately was bad time in my life to jump into this career. Had to step away for personal and medical reasons. I would have liked to have stayed on but felt public safety and my health at the time was more important.
Lansing Air Traffic Control Tower is a great place to work
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER & FRONT LINE MANAGER (Current Employee) – Lansing, MI – December 4, 2017
I have worked in the FAA for more than thirty-ne years, the last twelve have been here at Lansing. I have found the work to be interesting, challenging and at times hectic but most days I still drive into the parking lot with a smile on my face ready to get to work.
Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 7, 2017
A lot of changes occur during period of time I was employed by the agency a lot of which I did not agree with. I would definitely recommend people applying for the job I can't say that many people can deal with the stress and everything at the job entails.
Air Traffic Control Specialist (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 24, 2017
fast paced working environment making split second decisions. Management was lacking toward the end of career, unable to hold employees accountable for sub par work. The work place was enjoyable most of the time. The hard part of the job was the shift work required. Controlling the aircraft was the most fun aspect of the job.
Lot of workers that have been there a long time and complain
Process Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Avondale, AZ – July 30, 2017
Face to face interviews with clients to assess eligibility for food stamps, medical and cash. Referring the clients to community resources. Problem solving issues as they arose for the client.The numbers are more important to upper management.
Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 12, 2017
Air traffic control is stressful. The managers suck. Training is rough. Pay advances are quick if you're a quick learner. Can't work a day over 56 so that's when most retire. Others retire at 25 years.
