Hi everyone. I was wondering if it's possible to apply before I get my diploma? I'm in my last year of school and my graduation is summer 2020, but I want to apply earlier, before I get the diploma, so that if successful I get in the same year. Is this possible or will I have to wait until I graduate to out in my application? Has anyone done this before?

You should contact the official email stated on the atco.eurocontrol website and ask for your specific case. They are searching for students to fill e.g. October courses regardless if you already have your diploma. Its important that you will be finished before start of training.

Hi everyone! Soon, I'm about to have FEAST 1, and currently, I'm preparing using SkyTest, it's installed on windows via virtual machine on Mac OS, and I have an obstacle (or maybe that should be like that), I can barely hear Multi control test audio task. Tell me please, should be like that, i mean almost impossible, or it's just a problem of the system?
Thank you!

Hello everyone , recently i sent my documents to my local ATSP and i just saw that they have launched an autumn campaing for recruiting atc tranees. I think that in the next few months i will be invited to take the FEAST exams , i hope that everything will be allright . When i read the advertisement that my ATSP shared i saw that they are including a exam called WOMBAT. I read few things about it on the internet , it's something like a video game with two joysticks and that's all i found. Can sombody who took this test share some more information about it . I will be thankfull!
Regards!

Transfering from DSNA to MUAC

Hi guys, I'm 26 atm and have been working, sort of, in Paris ACC for 4 years now. I'm multirating and qualified, valid medical, ACC licence, all the good stuff.

Some years ago I looked at the salaries on eurocontrol's website and didn't find them very impressive. Recently though, I chanced upon a very talkative MUAC controlller on the phone and the numbers were quite higher than those on the website ; talking about some 9k in the early years to 15k late career, net, and also told me that there's no taxation on those salaries.

First, I'd like to know if those figures are real or exaggerated.
Then, I'd like to know if it's possible to transfer to MUAC from the french service once I've done my time (I'll be 28-29), and if so, would I have to do the whole training again or just parts of it ? I feel kind of underused in Paris, especially since Covid but also before that, and I'd gladly work more if it means I'll earn more.

Anyone here transfered from another ACC to MUAC ? If so, how risky is it / how long does the process take on average ?

I have done whole FEAST package, and went to Phase 2 at Eurocontrol. All members from my group unfortunately failed.

Last i heard MUAC stopped hiring licenced ATCOs even before COVID due to high failure rate during unit rating.

Hello there!
I couldn't go on January/February to do the test in MUAC, and they've put me in a waiting list on March, are there any disadvantages on doing so?

You wrote me privately asking some questions but I can't answer you as your inbox is full.

Hello everyone.

I recently sat the Phase 2 group assessment and subsequently the interview. The overall experience for the group interview is good, it does feel like they're good at filtering out who they know they want, but I don't know if I say the same for the interview. It feels heavily geared towards making sure you can actually do good during an interview rather than actually doing the job. Keep in mind, I was not successful in the latter.

During mine they focused on factoids, of which I missed most because I always focused more on their actual work rather than much of details. When they did ask technical questions, they usually delved deep enough that there was a point of disconnect between what you realistically should and could actually know.

If you're like me and you didn't get selected during the interview, you can request a phone call from the recruiter that was present during and be given feedback on key areas they didn't like and need improving, but more importantly you're also told if you're invited to try again a year later. I haven't actually received my phone call personally so my faith is still in limbo, so to speak. It's also very hard to gauge how you did, because me and 2 other candidates I know just couldn't decide how they handled themselves during, as you get pushed a lot with the questions that they ask. I actually left feeling great, but subsequently realized I might have a few spots that I could have done better, shortly followed by the rejection the following day. It felt very discouraging for me personally, because I think I have what it takes and that I'm a great fit, but that's my own opinion at the end of the day, its them you have to convince and I clearly didn't do enough on that front.

Lastly, you can't prepare for the group assessment beyond knowing how to be a team player, but that much is obvious. I passed on the first try both FEAST Phase 1, the same ATC test everyone takes in Europe, and Phase 2, the group part.

Best of luck.
