Hi was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the current problems with promotions within the Engineers, ive been serving for nearly 8 years now and completed my PNCO Cadre back in Nov 08. Was due to get promoted within 6-12months of completing my cadre but no joy. Now im being told that promotions are being based on PID placements according to trade within the corps, if this is true then chances for machinists are very slim by the looks of things. Ive had more than 3 recommendations for promotion so far and im a little puzzled to say the least. Is there anyone out there who could give me some useful information or anyone with a similar problem????
