I 'm currently an air traffic controller in the military and i'm thinking about getting out the military and possibly getting a job as a train dispatcher. I have about six months left until i get out of the military and need to make a decision whether or not to consider the train dispatcher job.
I was also wondering what job is easier and which 1 pays more. Thank you!
Like a air traffic controler or flight dispatchers and planners.
I'm sorry if I offended someone, I was meaning like not traveling as much(being away from home) and a job that have a lot to do with airplanes and aviation related stuff
I'm 19 and I need a job that pays more then $300-$350 a week. I'm wanting to know if there is any jobs that pay around $700 with a morning shift or something.
Currently I'm attending college and trying do earn my AS in pilot training, but its rather expensive and I found out I'm a couple of classes away from being able to receive my airport management certification. So I guess my main question would be, will that aid me in finding a new job at an airport?
Young college student wanting to do something with air planes but don't know where to start
-make decent money
-nothing like "baggage claim"
A sweet job with air planes but besides a pilot because I don't think I have the guts to fly them
I was born with Goldenhar syndrome, which rendered me limited neck mobility, scoliosis, and 20?earing loss, among other minor anomalies. I am also 5'5. Is there any kind of job that I could get in a county or state police office?
I am also fluent in Spanish.
I appreciate it!
Im married with 2 kids and have a decent Job not really happy with it but it gets me through. But I have a passion for big 18 wheelers and wanted to know if anyone could tell me the pros and conss of beign a Trucker?
For example, if a cop is assigned to patrol a certain area, who supervises him? Can he just park his car in a corner of the street and say he is watching for speeders when in fact he feels lazy to pull anyone over? Especially when the weather is bad(cold, rain) and he doesn't want to get out of his caar, can he just watch speeders blow by and report that he saw no speeder on the road?
Do a lot of cops do that?
Someone told me that it was more stressful than an air traffic controller position, which I read was in the top ten jobs that have the highest suicide rates due to stress and others. So fill me in if you have any info.
I don't think they hire meter maids anymore, nowadays they have the police officers do both.
MEXICALI, Mexico - Among travelers, it's jokingly known as Aeromigrante - Migrant Air.
New discount airlines in Mexico are doing a brisk business shuttling migrants to the U.S. border, turning what was once a days-long trek into an easy hop for legions of workers, both legal and illegal.
"It's much more comfortable than the bus and about the same price," said Leopoldo Torres, 37, of Mexico City, as he stretched his legs aboard Volaris Flight 190 to the border city of He and a traveling companion, Julio Menéndez, paid $118 each for the three-hour flight. They planned to cross into the United States illegally through the California desert.
Such migrants have become bread-and-butter customers for airlines Volaris, Avolar, Alma, Viva Aerobus, Interjet and Click, all of which have started up in the past two years. Older carriers such as Aero California and Aviacsa have cut their own prices to compete.
"The most productive routes we have are cities where you have those passengers who are traveling with the idea of the American Dream," said Luis Ceceña, a spokesman for Avolar. About 70 percent of Avolar's passengers are migrants, he said.
For some airlines like Avolar, the emphasis on migrant travel was a conscious decision, with company officials structuring their routes and fares around migrants' needs, he said. For others, it was simply a side effect of low prices, which have opened up air travel to millions of poorer Mexicans.
The airlines say they treat migrants like any other passengers. The Mexican government has promised to try to slow emigration by creating jobs in Mexico. But by law, Mexican authorities and companies cannot impede the free travel of their fellow citizens, even if they suspect they are going to cross the U.S. border illegally.
Heading for the desert
Travelers planning to cross illegally are easy to spot. At the Hermosillo airport, a major crossroads for migrants headed to the Arizona desert, they are the men traveling in groups of three and four, wearing new sneakers or hiking boots and carrying nothing but backpacks.
"Altar! Naco! Nogales!" taxi dispatcher Javier Montaño shouted outside the airport as he directed travelers to vans headed to the main staging grounds for illegal border crossers.
Because of the increased traffic, Mexican immigration agents now check the IDs of all arriving passengers, even on domestic flights, to try to catch Central American migrants headed to the border. In Hermosillo, federal police conduct spot checks on the vans before they leave the airport.
"By law, we can't stop the Mexican (migrants)," police Officer Carlos Zequera Arias said. "But the Central Americans are starting to get on these flights, too."
Until the flood of discount airlines began in 2005, air travel in Mexico was too expensive for most poor Mexicans. A one-way flight from central Mexico to Tijuana ran $300 or more on the country's two flag carriers, Aeromexico and Mexicana.
For most migrants, getting to the border meant days of travel on long-distance buses - or for the very poor, a harrowing and illegal ride on Mexico's railways while clinging to a freight car.
The discount airlines cut costs by copying the business model of U.S. carrier Southwest Airlines. They fly out of smaller airports, make several stops on the same trip, bypass travel-agent fees by selling directly to customers, and concentrate on a few high-volume routes instead of a hub-and-spoke system.
Typical fares to Tijuana from Toluca, just east of Mexico City, are now around $150 on the discount airlines.
That has opened up air travel to millions of new customers, said José Calderoni, marketing director for Volaris. About one-third of the airline's passengers have never flown before, he said.
Overall, the number of Mexicans flying has jumped 36 percent since 2004. About 13.4 million people took domestic flights from January to June, according to Mexico's Institute of Statistics, Geography and Information Processing.
The discount airlines have been adding planes and routes at a breakneck pace. Avolar has grown from one jetliner and three destinations to nine with 16 destinations. Viva Aerobus has 21 destinations and plans to double its fleet to 10 jets from five. Interjet has nine planes and says it will order 20 more. Alma has 15 regional jets and 25 destinations, Volaris has 12 planes and 17 destinations, while Click has 26 destinations with 18 planes and six on order.

I am applying for a job as a county dispatcher in Texas. The application asks if you have ever been convicted of a crime in civilian or military court, and for this purpose, conviction of a criminal offense includes paid fine, time served, placed on probation and court ordered restitution. Do minor traffic violations (oper. w/o registration and defective muffler) count as a misdemeanor, felony, or should I not list these, as they are my only legal offenses? Thanks for your help.
Im planning on joining the marines and i was interested in the military police.
I want to know what i would do on a daily basis and what i would learn in (mp) training.
