    Your drug test still hasnt come back? Did you take it along with your medical? That seems like a long time not to have your results yet.

      I never took my drug test. I assumed that the medical and drug test were separate entities. I thought they occurred at different times, and the drug test is random. I'm not stressing to much about the drug test because from what I heard it clears fast after its administered, and because I haven't even met with my BI yet. I am more anxious about getting the interview completed. Those that received interims have already received. At this point, I doubt an interim is in my future.

        Hard to say. i took my dope test the same day as my medical and physical. As far as an interim goes, i had a girl in my FLETC class who went through the whole academy without having ever met her investigator. He actually called her to set up a meeting and she's like "well im at FLETC right now". You can't figure out the ways of the Gov't no matter how hard you try.

            Thats tough, i know those southeast coast stations can be hard to get. It all depends on if and when you are willing/able to relocate. I know places like Detroit, Washington state, Chicago O'hare and the southwest border locations are usually hiring pretty steady.

                I would love to have an interim. I hope to be at FLETC before 09.

                • I have received mixed answers for this question. But, I thought I would ask again.

                  Does shift differentials and holiday pay calculate into the OT cap?

                  • Any new TOs gone out since the July testing? I've only heard of MI so far.

                      In theory interim is great because it gets you to the dirty south faster. But it can be a little stressful because you never know what might come up before you leave fletc, even if you think youre bi is clean. For example i had a guy in my class who was former tsa for a few years, assumed he was good, and got yanked and given a NOPA during the last couple weeks because his employer from pizza hut from years ago said he was lazy and unreliable. Stupid crap always seems to come up.

                        Oh wow, so if your at FLETC and receive a NOPA they automatically yank you out of class, or do you have time to respond. I don't think my background is sqeaky clean; however, I think I can explain everything to show I will not be a security concern. I think that's what responding to NOPA's are all about. Just reassurance that you will not be a problem down the line.

                            Yeah, when you see the big shot with the full bird on his shoulders sneak into the back of the classroom, you know someones coming out of the class. But yes, you would get a letter or whatever stating what came up, and get a certain amount of time to reply to it. We had guys who'd been arrested for marijuana, credit probs, etc. get pulled out and basically signed a form that acknowledged they'd been warned and could screw up anymore. That kinda stuff.
