    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi all,

Be forewarned, this is NOT a job for the less than highly skilled professional. This system is a computer driven monitoring center linked to state of the art receiving sites and is like nothing you have ever seen in your life, bar none. The odds of being hired are like those of winning the lottery and there is none less than the top prize and what you are put through during the screening process boggles the mind.

One thing that's guaranteed to amuse is the EOE papers you must read and sign to enter any employment at a federal facility. The only clue I'll give you is you may leave just a bit enlightened on the topic of racism. Have fun and don't laugh out loud, you might start a chain reaction during the group interview. You most likely won't be hired but it's guaranteed you'll leave with a smile.
