    Still boggles my mind why folks that are applying for this are posting info/links about it all over the web....

    Just giving yourself more competition as there are only going to be so many slots filled...... And one could be SOL due to someone not knowing about it now knowing about.......

    Doesn't really bother me. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that need a stable career right now... I don't mind trying to help a bit.

    Truthfully, if there is someone more qualified than me so be it. I guess it doesn't hurt that I already have a LE career.

    A few posts on a random message board aren't going to make any difference. Apply early and take your time highlighting relevant experience/education when filling out the application. We aren't talking about some agency hiring for 1-5 positions, this is an announcement for the USMS hiring needs for several years and hundreds of people could be hired with it.

    I've been saying it but people act like I'm wrong for keeping info to myself. It's beyond stupid to give yourself more competition. And all because you want to feel important by thinking your breaking the news....Common sense is really dead

    Yes it is....especially posting it on here and the delphi boards....

    Every idiot/retard in the world will be applying.....and I would suspect keep a lot of good people out of the game due to them clogging things up.....because a lot of folks won't be qualfied but will apply anyway thinking they can sneak thru things......

    Exactly. The excuse that "if I get kicked out by someone more qualified" is not the problem. By spreading the word some idiots resume who isn't fit for rent a cop duty will bump you out of the process because he beat you to the punch. And you may call it helpful but I worry about people who cant keep any info to themselves. What are you gonna do when you know some good opsec info?

    Having been involved with the hiring of local and feds....there are a ton of folks that apply and shouldn't be.

    I've arrested several for outstanding warrants and arrested several for driving on suspended/revoked licenses.....after watching them walk out of the station/building ticked off because we booted them from the process because of their background issues...only to see them drive away.....

    So folks that don't get into the process can clearly thank others for posting the info on the web....because rest assured....on the morning of March 5th, there are going to be a crap ton of idiots applying for this job.....and kicking folks out of the process that are much more qualified than they are......

    SMH....

    I haven't been going around posting the news all over the place, but I am not whining and crying because others are doing that. The USMS is not some small unknown agency, it is one of the most well known and famous federal LE agencies. This is the first time that they have opened up hiring in years, and you actually think for even a second that you were going to be able to keep it a secret so that you could slip in?

    No one would even care if someone posted online that the FBI or USSS were hiring.

    As famous as those agencies are...... Most tend to go for the USMS due to what they think it is.....hence the reason why folks need to apply early.....and other folks need to not run their mouths off......

    And yes, I do believe a lot of good folks will be left out of this process because of others posting about the annoucement all over the web........

    The USMS are advertising as they should as an employer you want the largest applicant pool you can get. The ones that are not qualified will get eliminated. some qualified will proceed, so many put their eggs in one basket. When I first got into LE I shotgunned my application to both fed and local.

    I was willing to accept a less desirable location to get the job. So many applicants want a specific location, which is fine, but there will always be guys who are willing to get their foot in the door and transfer later back home. See it all the time. I've seen selecting officials give favor to someone willing to go anywhere more so than I've seen selecting officials hire someone who would stay local other than CA.
    ...and is commended as being worthy of trust and confidence

    I understand being competitive folks, I'm pretty competitive myself. That being said, it seems like this is getting a little to malicious in my eyes. Yes, I understand people want the edge, but I don't know if I'm stoked to get a co-worker who appears, at least from these threads, to be so cut-throat. USMS is a large Agency, and they're advertising about this opening. Anyone who "googles" the Agency will see the home page and see that hiring is opening up. So I personally doubt that thousands of unqualified people will apply based off of this thread. If you meet the qualifications, and you do well in the application process, then you have nothing to worry about. It would be nice to see everyone take it down a notch on the sniping at each other on here, after all, you may be working together shortly! Good luck to all in the process!
