Is it a bad sign if my status hasn't been moved to "referred" yet? I was referred on the last bid and took the ATSA but obviously didn't get a TOL. Is it a possibility of not getting referred this time around?

No it's not a bad sign. They won't update anyone's status to referred until everyone has taken the ATSA. My status didn't change to referred in last year's bid until December 7th, one week after the last possible ATSA test date.

Pretty sure those who were best qualified and did not get a TOL were in pool 2 cause if you were pool 1 and best qualified, you were most definitely going to get a TOL. There is no way you wouldnt, considering they hardly hired any controllers last year. Though does that mean they didnt bother hiring any well qualified or qualified pool 1? That's wack

I'm curious about how many applied this year in pool 1 and 2. There is hardly any hype. my school makes announcements and they didnt this year and the bid was open the entire 3 days. Maybe people did not expect it to be open in June rather than July or August

We should get test dates within the next 2 to 3 weeks is my guess
Pool 2 best qualified and No TOL. Just for anyone wondering retake the ATSA until you’re best qualified at least.

Interesting. Last year mine changed to referred, and then I got the e-mail to schedule the ATSA.

You shouldnt have been referred until you have taken the test and gotten passing results, referred means you have a chance to move on to get a TOL depending how good your test results were

Everyone should still be in the received category unless something was wrong with you application

Hey I’m new here because I was on StuckMic forums and I just found this one. Has anyone received dates for the ASTA? I’ve been watching my emails but still nothing has come in.

When they do come you'll know; this thread will start getting busy again. Based on timeline I'd expect them in the next couple weeks.

Question.. if you no longer work at the last job listed on your resume.. do you call HR to let them know or wait until you get a TOL?

I wouldn’t say anything unless asked. When I applied way back when, none of my references or employers were called.

If they did call them would you still get a good reference? Fired?

That's good to know. I am leaving my current employer and know they aren't happy to have me go. But they shouldn't have anything bad to say about me. So I'm not worried. I would only hate to see some small change like that cause me not to be hired.

This is the 3rd bid i applied for, the previous ones went straight from "Received" to "Not Referred". I just found out last month that they will be sending out an e-mail regarding the next steps. Wish I would've known sooner. Glad to see I haven't missed this one yet!

what is your source for this regarding the email?

I ended up calling the number on the bid post, talked to a lady there and asked the reason why I am repeatedly not referred, and what I should do differently. And all she could say was wait for the email and go from there.

Have you taken the atsa?

No I've never heard anything about it until I got on this thread. Never got to schedule to take it or anything
you need to take the atsa to be considered for an offer...you are constantly being not referred because you haven’t taken it

Keep an eye out for an email...you should receive one as ling as your qualified
