    Did anyone apply for the Dept of Navy Firefighter position about a month ago? If so did anyone hear anything?

    that place is crazy, they offer the job at gs-5 and then call you to tell you that you cant afford to live on gs-5 money. i heard second hand that they may offer goverment houseing to dod emeployees. i forgot when that job closed but it takes a few months sometimes to be contacted, i get phone calls about jobs i forgot i applied for

    I applied last month, never got a call back. KBR was the only one out of whom ever that called back. Looking like back to Iraq.

    Congrats. Enjoy the sun and fun. I'll be here in Wisconsin freezing. Just out of curiosity do you have ARFF through the military?

    1998, got a call from them to work there as a GS-3, and at that time, all they had was basicly GS 3s, a few 6s and then officers. now MY OPINION is that the uppers got a bonus for keeping payroll down, even if it is on the sly..

    From the way I hear it (hear say mind you), the Fire Chief of Orlando NTC went down to as an inspector for ther FP&RI inspection and reported the massive number of GS3s.. that were never getting promoted. Next thing you know they apply for GS3s again, then a few months later, the GS-12 Chief position opens up.. maybe he did not follow the rules decreed by his higher ups.. who knows.

    But a friend who worked there said most people that were 6s and under shared rooms including GS3s who were almost 4 to an apartment. GS-8 or 9 was about bare minimum unless you wanted to drive a couple of hundred miles into homestead area.

    Very Very expensive place to live.
