If the announcement hasn't closed yet, you might want to re-visit your application to make sure you spelled "Marshal" correctly.

I like how, instead of asking if you’ve ever been convicted of a serious crime, they just listed every crime and asked you to respond to each individually. Top notch.

I applied and I didn’t get an email either. I think I’ll probably pull my app. From what I hear, the job isn’t great if you have a family and, as cool as the name sounds, I couldn’t imagine my job everyday being to ride on a commercial airplane.

Yeah I figured at least if I didn't like the job , its a good way to go to FLETC and get hired somewhere else.

I’m pretty sure that FAMS don’t go to CITP at FLETC though. I think it’s a relatively customized training course, but it doesn’t go in depth into investigations (in my understanding from reading some blogs and watching some YouTube videos). So you’d still have to go back if you got an 1811 position.

ok that's good to know. Mainly the only reason I was interested is because they have openings her in FL. Its very rare that any Federal Leo opens up here in Tampa or surrounding area . Plus I'm in the process of finishing my degree which is also a requirement for most 1811 positions.

FYI - FAMS are 1801 series and do not attend CITP. They do very little to no investigative work and the only similarity with an 1811 is that both are non uniform and both receive LEAP. Pay/compensation is decent but falls behind many other Federal LEOs. FAMS are compensated via the pay band system and not the general schedule (big deal).

If you are on the outside looking in and trying to land that first federal LE gig then it’s not a bad place to hang your hat for a few years.

Thanks BP ive been a contractor so yes I'm trying to get in the federal system.
I did not realize they are not on the GS Scale so ill have to look into that. Regardless its been a month and I still haven't received anything from DOT , so its just hypothetical at this point.

Pay banding is not good. The far majority end up at the bottom of the band pay with zero steps to move up like the general schedule. Additionally the position is excepted service. (Also not a good thing).
