    The only choice (for where you might be stationed) that you had when you applied was to pick a geographic preference (S TX, W TX and NM, AZ, or CA).

    Each of which contain multiple sectors and numerous stations in each sector.

    Edit to explain the heat comment: Check the weather in El Centro, CA. At 10:30 PM it is 94 degrees!!!
    Man I hope that is not the case. I picked Cleveland as the location of my oral interview. I'm trying to track back mentally now to where I got "El Centro" from. I could have sworn it was on the application, oh well.

    As far as the heat, I did two years in Ft. Irwin, CA, which is not very far from Death Valley.

    • I enjoy the heat..Ill take whatever place they offer me.


      Havasu is a second home for me. 130-140 on good days in the summer

        From what I recall El Centro was grouped with San Diego as one of the preferences. I'm about the same time in the process. The BPA at the center expained the locations...Desert, Desert/Water/, Desert, Desert/Ocean. Everything else was just names simply because they're going to assign you where they need you.

          No, I am in for the BPA. I thought Florida was available. So BPA is only for the SW?

          My pannel interview is coming up and this process has been fast. I am kind of concerned now because two weeks notice will not be enough to get my house sold, move the family cross country and other stuff. I can not leave my current job nor do anything else until an offer is given. I wonder how ppl manage to do all that in 2 wks.

                There were a few spots on the northern border that were opened for a week or two to new hires, but the coastal sectors (Miami and New Orleans) have never been open to trainees.

                Really? We just had trainees assigned to my station (in CA) this past week...

                    None, but I currently reside in Columbus. San Diego sure would be a nice change of pace.....

                                If you want the job, I wouldn't turn down an offer. Just my 2 cents.


                                To answer another question from above....
                                Our Station's FTU Supervisor just said that he hasn't heard anything about CA or SDC (San Diego Sector) not getting any more trainees this year. Perhaps it could be a rumor?
