If I major in air traffic control at U North Dakota will I be likely to actually get an air traffic control job? I know there are periods of time when not many are hired. Is this job good and how bad is the stress?
I am trying to find the right person to contact about this question, but I do not want to ask just the Army itself because they might not give the best advice. So, just like my question up top says: Is the experienced gained in the Army Reserve for an Air Traffic Control Operator enough training/experience to land a civilian Air Traffic Control job at an airport?
There are several enlisted air traffic control jobs you can enlist for. I would like to know which ones, if any will include an FAA certification in their training.
I am exploring career opportunities, and I would love to know more about what it is like to have a career in air traffic control. Does it pay well? Is it a stressful job?

Also, if someone is hired as an air traffic controller, would it be possible to work nights or part time while taking college classes on the side? Thanks a lot for any answers!

I recently was disqualified from an air traffic control job soley on the basis that I take Zoloft. Since then I have been surprised to find out that a person who takes antidepressants is ineligible for a good handful of jobs. I am trying to get into pharmacy school, but before I do I want to know if I can even be a pharmacist. Thank you.

Thanks for your help!
What kind of stuff is in the test? i want to apply for an air traffic control job and i want to be very well prepared for this test if they ask me to take it.
It seems really cool. i hear its stressful, but i don't think that would be a big issue for me. ..what's it like, and how do you get there? what type of training? what are salaries and benefits like? what about times that you would be working? i know they have to have some sort of rotation or schedule or something like that. ..anything else about air traffic control?
I will be attending a school to get my associates in Air Traffic Control from an FAA approved institution. Once I have taken the test and completed the degree, how long does it take the FAA to call you up to come to the Oklahoma facility for the two month training?

I am planning on joining the air force and I am trying to choose between air traffic control and security forces. With security forces I don't have many civilian career options. Basically a police officer, but they barely get paid for the work they do. I know controllers get paid pretty well for what they do, but i've heard that it can be such a stressful job that people commit suicide, become addicted to alcohol, and MOST importantly: have a shorter lifespan. Is this true? (esp the last part)
Are you allowed to job shadow Air Traffic Control? We're doing job shadowing at school, and ATC is a career that really interests me. But I know that since 9/11 they've really been boosting up security, so I'm not sure if you're allowed to or not. Is there a way to job shadow?
Ok so I understand this is a very stressful job but im still interested. Do you need some sort of degree to become an air traffic controller or just go to an air traffic control school? I am currently in college in my second year. I live in south florida is there any schools around here that i can go too for this? Thanks.
