      There is a city-owned parking garage across the street from the courthouse, if you get there via GPS and look around you will likely see a banner along the street saying "Visitor Center Parking", just go into the garage, it'll probably cost you around $13 but it beats scavenging for hours then walking a distance to get there.

        At my session, I got there 40 minutes early and immediately began filling out my fingerprint cards. Then my fingerprints were taken. After I did this, I filled out a bunch of paperwork regarding my driving history(accidents and violations), employment history, drug abuse history, Credit Release, Ethnic background/race info, Veteran's Preference, etc.

        They then went over exactly to fill out each of these forms, then showed us the order they wanted them in.

        The Chief gave a brief speech about the Marshal's service, his bio, etc. The recruiter spoke to us again and then we took a 1 hour lunch break.

        After lunch we watched some videos, as I explained in my previous post. They explained the hiring process and how you should take the first offer you get, but it would almost certainly be in Region 1.

        Then on our way out they made sure we included all of the paperwork and checked it off.

        Most people wore suits I did see a couple of people wearing jeans, one guy wearing a polo shirt and khakis.

        Some flew in from as far as way San Francisco.

            • hey thanks for the info tdparmel thats helpful


              • Now we all just need to nail the interview since it seems to be the only portion where they are directly interacting with us throughout the rest of the process. If you are in good shape and have a clean background, then the interview is the only real disqualifyer you have to worry about. Good luck to everyone!


                • Another good info session in Philly last night. Very informative. I won't repeat anything that was already said, but the one thing I was disappointed (although not altogether surprised) about was the salary scale. I knew that they were hiring at GS-5 or GS-7, but I was hoping there was some lee way as far as what step they were going to start you out at. But, apparently, unless you are a federal employee, its either GS-5 step 1 or GS-7 step 1 take it or leave it. If they got LEAP right off the bat, that would almost put me at where I am right now but since they don't I'm not sure I can take the pay cut. That combined with the fact that I'd be giving up my G ride with my current job makes it look doubtful. But I'm going to go through the process anyway and see what they say. Good luck to everyone involved. It seems like an awesome career, all things considered.


                  • shortcop,

                    Did they give u a break down of the pay scale for the GS-5 and GS-7?
                    Losing is not an "Option"


                    • Not quite what I heard in regards to starting at 5 or 7. I remember him saying that if you have 3yrs of law enforcement exp with arrest authority you would also start at a 7....But that decision is made in DC.


                      • what was the pay for a 5 and 7 ?

                        • look it up on opm, it varies, depends on location.

                            Yes that is what they said. I have no doubt that they would start me at a GS-7, but there are 10 steps within the GS-7 salary range, and they made it seem like everyone is starting at either GS-5, step 1 (if you have no LE experience) or GS-7, step 1, which is something like $43,000 per (locality pay not included).


                            • OK, I should be good, I have LE exp !!!!!!!!!!
