  • Anyone on here ATF or DEA?

    I'm thinking more about going Federal once i graduate POST. Just kind of curious what a typical or average day/week of being an ATF or DEA agent is like.

    One of my friends on my dept was ATF and he hated it. That's why he left (actually he was on the dept, left for the ATF, then came back). I've heard other agents refer to the letters in ATF stand for: All Those Forms...as in the tone of paperwork you will be doing instead of catching bad guys.

    My buddy told me that on about the 4th day of the ATF academy one of the instructors began class by saying: "Welcome to the ATF. The biggest ***** law enforcement agency in the world."

    Sounds to me like there is a lot of discontent on in the agency. Now if your just interested in sitting around and collecting a fat paycheck then it could be the place for you. Otherwise I'd go DEA.
    Two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead.

      Worked at ATF

      I worked at ATF as a Special Agent 1999-2002. I now work at a Federal IG as a Special Agent. Send me a question and I'll try to answer it.
