Someone here could be your supervisors and have the power to determine the fate of your career. Are you trying to single yourself out now before you even start the job? On this forum we try to help each other, not pick at every mistake.

    I would hate to work with you if this is how you treat peers and coworkers.
    I second that even though I have been known to write in my own style and not use proper sentences on this forum, I was picked on by several individuals, but this is such a turn off all of this need to stop because I find myself coming on here less to see some of the good advice from others.
    These hands need your guidance!

      Huh?

      Are you deliberately trying to confuse me?

      Your TO is generated from your test score. It's not influenced by any post-TO steps you have already finished. Those steps only matter once you've a TO in hand and assuming that they haven't expired by then.

        More or less, you need running shoes for running outdoors and court shoes for the indoor workouts.

        Black shoes do equal dress shoes. you'll probably be in them only a few days. You might want to buy a cheap pair of mid-height black duty boots from Walmart or such once you get there and get settled in with what your needs are. Those Walmart boots will probably become your primary footwear during class time, at least until you get your issued boots. If you can get away with it, I suggest keeping your issue boots virgin until you get back to your port. Shiny new boots look better to start off with than boots scuffled by 3 months wear at the academy.
        Cool...thanks!

        I did the 1.5 mile in 8:34s today...this is me out of shape lol

          gotya....nope not trying to confuse you at all, lol i asked someone from mhc and they said they base a TO on several things especially if your steps are already, cleared i figured why would they have an applicant sitting in the waiting pool, and respend money to have any steps redone if expired by then?

            No. TO's are offered based on location and test score. Your former status as a trainee and your steps completed are all irrelevant to those issuing TO's.

              If you haven't a TO, you're not sitting in the "waiting pool". You're waiting at the door, hoping to get an offer to get into the pool. Once you get into the pool, then you start moving along faster than the people who are waiting to complete their steps.

                • I would only bring one good pair of running shoes. I brought both and haven't used the court shoes yet.

                    So just bring running shoes and black shoes?

                              Cool. As long as I won't get disciplined for not bringing the court shoes...I see no reason for two pair of sneakers
