Albert had his interview yesterday for the position at the Air Traffic Control Center in Albuquerque, NM at the Center in Leesburg, VA and it went great!
The manager who interviewed him said he would recommend that he be moved onto the next phase so now he has to make sure he's in top physical form before his physical and eye exam. Luckily he already has a secret clearance so that part shouldn't be a problem.
His interview came almost exactly a year from the day he took the ATC test in Dallas on December 11, 2009. It's a LONG process!
