Oakland takes a long time to CPC at, although I'm not sure about ZAB. I work with ZAB all day and they're awesome. At least the 4 sectors I deal with anyhow. If the rest of the center is like that then you'd be good to go.

Also take into consideration which would be easier to get out of.

ZAB is quicker to CPC but staffing is terrible, so I don't know how easy it would be to get out

Where'd you get the info that their staffing is terrible? I think they're projected to be at around 90 percent. 123ATC could be wrong but they say it's current info. I haven't actually looked at the numbers though from a FAA source.

Also 80 percent success rate at ZAB vs 52 percent at ZOB. All you need to know right there. Granted that also counts anyone who didn't finish training such as hardships but still.

Worked ZAB before, but don't wanna go in too much details haha. But that could be everywhere.

Staffing does suck here and I wouldn't expect to get out. A majority of people who are at ZAB want to transfer out too so that doesn't help. We've had 3 or 4 people withdraw from training for personal reasons but besides that it is smooth and they do care about it.

Maybe I shouldn't give advice on staffing numbers since clearly I don't know what I'm talking about haha. Hopefully they get that fixed soon for yall so people can get out. Not sure if you work with ZLA but if ya do thanks for looking out.

You heard about our trainee withdrawing in OKC? Odd haha

Congrats on passing. ZAB may not be your first choice but there's much worse places to go. Get checked out, put in your time, and then transfer down the line.
