    To all, you can read some of Hunt the Jackel's previous posts on another forum right here: http://lonelymachines.org/mall-ninjas/



    Good day sir
    Good grief. It's like they let Gunkid out of prison.

    And, I just heard from the Hiring Center today. Apparently, they got the medical from from my Lasik that I faxed them, and I've passed everything else.

    So I wait. And wait.

            If they are made by Dickies, they are smurfs. You will get your class 2/3's in week 8 or so and they are made by VF. Enjoy the chowhall while you can. Give it a couple more weeks and you'll be sick of it, except the chicken of course!

              Is the chow hall anything like military food?

                  • yeah they must be the smurfs but they're not TOO ugly. just a little time consuming when it comes to ironing. the food isn't bad but i can see how it will get old. from what i've seen.. i'm a little disappointed in the weight training facility but i can make do.

                            Yes I realized I made that mistake. I would be coming into BOP at GL-5 since I have no formal experience and or the 4 year degree.

                            I just took the CBPO test on 4-29-09 (still waiting for results) and I'm scheduled for the ICE test on 5-26-09... although I just got a letter to report for jury duty that very same day Guess I'll do a work around.

                            Allthough it would give me the perfect excuse to miss work for another test

                            Since you brought it up earlier, CBP is only required to pay-match DHS agencies. There's some chance they won't match your BOP salary.

                            Just a heads up...

                              What happens if your medical, drug test, physical, expire while in TSU?
                              Do you get kicked back to CASS, then have to do everything all over?
