    Well, when I was at FLETC a couple of years ago they pretty much served everything underneath the sun. They have daily specials and what not but they always have regular items like grilled chicken, pasta, etc. You're best bet will be the salad bar if you want to stay away from proteins that are upsetting your stomach. As for seafood... they do serve fish and I believe it's a daily menu item, however, I am not positive on that. Things could have changed since the last time I was there. I would take the safe route and stick with the salad bar until you know for sure what they're serving.

      If the past few years are any indication, fall/early winter would be my guess.

      Truthfully, I doubt more than a handful of people really "know" the answer to that question. Announcements come out when the applicant pool dries out, and they take all but a few hours to type up and put out on the web. If we're lucky, we might get a two-week heads-up on the next announcement but honestly, they could also decide at noon tomorrow to put one out and we could see it up and running by 3:30PM.

      • [QUOTE=colinm112;1927402]Day 131 in TSU for Miami, FL Seaport. *cracks the whip* Seems like only yesterday that I check cass and everything has cleared and I was so excited. Please sound off if you can beat this number for Miami.. I am curious.

        Placed in TSU about 99 days ago for me. Miami is my Geo-Pref. I'm doing my Re-Take PFT 08/07. Hey, Seaport specific? How's That? And lastly 1.5 mile in 15 minutes is what it is.

          • So how is this process working??? Ive been in TSU for a month and wondering if DHS is going to make everyone thats been waiting re-test for the physical prior to getting the call for EOD? my guess is that they would? Another question for you guys is If you go in as a GS-5 how long does it take before you reach the GS-7? Does anyone know how the GS- levels go, how long it takes to progress?

                Try searching the thread. Lot's of good answers lie within.

                Grade/step progression has been answered multiple times here over the years.

                  The "Main Line" consists of the course that is usually going to be meat. But they do have salmon on days and a few other things such as lasagna etc. there is a salad bar that has all your pastas, salad accessories, etc. They are pretty good at catering to everyones needs when it comes to the food, but fair warning... you are probably going to get sick of the pasta on a daily, so if its possible to take your vehicle, to go get things from outside fletc, its highly recommended... Not sure what I would of done if Shanes BBQ wasnt there. ha ha

                    You'll be promoted to GS 7, 9, and 11 non-competitively every year. After that it's step increases at your grade unless you apply for GS 12 or higher positions.
