  • Greetings from Columbia, SC

    Former Navy here - spent my time as a Fire Controlman and as a cross-trained Master at Arms. Security Reaction Force experience, active shooter trained, Correction Officer Afloat trained, and generally happy with my time in.

    Moved to the Columbia, SC area with my family and hoping for a new start - hoping to be picked up by a department here.

        Welcome! Columbia's definitely hiring. Good luck.

        Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
        It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
        Seeing that death, a necessary end,
        Will come when it will come.”

          Check CPD, that's who I applied for. 7% pay raise starting out, quicker process

            They're on my list! I have them, Richland County, Lexington County, Lexington City, State Transport, and BPS all being done right now. The only part I have left is getting neighbor references for some of them - being new to the area trying to make friends with the neighbors lol

                  Richland is anal about debt, just a warning. I chose CPD because they hire quickly.

                    Many agencies here are anal about debt, they want to make sure you aren't an integrity risk.
                    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                      Beside 2 cars and a credit card (all being paid on time and in good status), I only have $238 in debt which I discovered when running my newest credit report. I don't think they'll find me an integrity risk for a Comcast and Sprint collections from when I deployed overseas in 2011. But, getting ready to pay them anyway.
