    Yeah, former boss was an @$$. Dunno how he’s still in business.

    I don't suspect most employers are similar to mine but I haven't had any issues with getting time off. They have known about the process since I first filled out the application for BPA. It has gotten to the point where they actually ask me if there are any days I need off before they put out the next schedule. In my experience, I find it a lot easier to be up front and honest. It may also help that I have been at my current job for 8+ years.

    Literally illegal to fire someone for serving their country. That kid's boss is a ******.

    HI629 - sounds like your mentee's former employer committed a serious USERRA violation. But good on the kid for making the best of it!

    Lots of ways to make fast cash on the up and up. A kid I’m mentoring just got canned for joining the military. He went to give his boss notice because he ships in 3 months, yet the boss told him his services were no longer needed and took him off of the schedule. I thought it was pretty cool that he was giving the boss 3 months to find a suitable replacement. Guess I was wrong.

    Kid didn’t freak or mope around. He signed up to drive for Lyft and Uber. He clears $200 a day, gets paid weekly, or can cash out daily for a small fee. Glad he was able to find a new source of income on such a short notice! More free time, make your own hours, AND making more than when he had to for his former employer.

    If you get fired for applying to be a federal investigator, your boss was waiting to stab you in the back anyway.

    Except then you’re unemployed and can’t pay your bills.

    Another option, go tell the boss that you are currently considering working in LE and are in the hiring process, so days off are needed to complete certain portions of the hiring process. If he cans you the next day, let your recruiter and BI know you got canned for applying to be a cop. It will show you’re dedicated to the job and not afraid of being totally and completely truthful with people despite the possibility of adverse circumstances.
    Agree 110% with HI629

    As some have stated. Days off or prior, after your current shift. If not, take off. You will have to tell them at some point as to the BI.

    Yeah this is spot on... it really depends on who you work for and how they feel about you leaving. I’ve been able to schedule most stuff on days off and swap shifts as well. Only used leave once or twice.

    It depends on the rapport you have with your supervisor. My supervisor is cool and he kind of knew I was going to leave; it was just a matter of time. I’d always try to schedule my appointments on my days off. If not I’d just straight up tell him, I’d like to use leave on this day(s) so I can do whatever with this agency. Most of the time he would or he’d just switch my off days. If he couldn’t, he’d hint at me using sick leave. He said you do what you need to do.

    To my knowledge, it's none of their business why you're out. As long you're using your personal days in accordance with their company guidelines, I don't see the rub.

    Sorry.

    ME: Hey, Boss, I'll be out next Tuesday.

    BOSS: M'kay.
