        its not going to be easy that's for sure. But for the opportunity to grow it will be worth it. The comforting fact is that I'll have all my family up there. Happy new year folks!

                  • 1) Im also from NJ like many of you and this place sucks! haha

                    2) I'm just wondering why so many people ask how it is to work at a certain duty station. I know your location matters if you have a family but from my point of view I do not care where they place me, the hours, the workers, nothing. I have wanted a federal position for a long time and I'll do whatever they ask me to. Should you really care what it is like at a certain station? You have a dream job thousands are praying they get everyday. Remember how lucky you are when you get it

                        True, and I'm not the one asking that questions but, the unknown is the scariest thing most people ever face. No one has said, "tell me if it's bad, because if it's bad I'm not going." They are just searching for knowledge/ information. There is nothing wrong with that? I think you are assuming some negative motivation on the part of people just asking questions out of curisity, that just want to know what they can expect, good, bad, or ugly. It is wise to be prepared to the best of your abilities. jmho.

                          How much of a dream job would it be, if there were mass corruption. I've heard horror stories about some ports.
                          Most people will take a pay cut also for a federal job, so if families are used to living off a certain salary, then take this cut for a fed. Job, though temporary, it makes sense if people want to know how advancement opportunities work at various ports. Because it IS quicker and easier at some over others... once you hit journeyman of course.

                          Seeings as I'm young, I'm in the same mind set as you, anything they want done, I'm doing it.
