What’s the reason?
My specialty at my facility sent two controllers there. One is back already and the story is that the other will be on his way back as soon as the year is up and he won't have to pay the move money back. According to them, it wasn't the work, they didn't like the facility and the relationship management had with the union. Apparently management is something of a bulldozer and there isn't a culture of cooperation at all. That's only what I've heard from the returning controllers, I have no first hand knowledge.

Facility
ZAU Chicago Center
How is the Elgin area?
I live 10 minutes west of the TRACON. I love the neighborhood that I’m in. Many controllers from C90 and ZAU live here. The TRACON itself is in a newly built industrial park. Located right next to one of the best public golf courses in the state. There’s numerous towns within 20 minutes of the TRACON that you can find as very appealing places to live. Hope this helps.

You’re not far off, I know 2 people that returned as controllers because of this, another had bid a permenant sup job to then return to ZAU as a controller and lost almost ten years of NATCA time cause it was that bad... I’d stay away. At least for now. There’s a reason I live 10 minutes away but work at ZAU instead. Lol.

How likely is one to get picked up if they apply for the USA jobs posting? Is it a pretty sure bet as long as you apply and meet the requirements?
