Wow. I never would’ve even imagined this. Insulting requirements like this come and go, but the reputational damage lives forever. Unquestionably top 3 most short-sighted things I’ve seen in 20 years of government service. To the pros applying for this job, my apologies.

Careful, more time spent on MLOA than on the job and someone might mistake you for an airline pilot! :D

Well, it is the beginning of the fiscal year. Have any of you heard anything lately?

Last call was two hours ago and you're still waiting to see if the fat girl will go home with you? :D

Ditch the BS poly

Pay them full rates + bonus for training and another bonus when they complete training

If assigned RPA, max is 2 years then you can move to fixed/rotary wing.

Lots of ways to attract the candidates you want

However the geniuses you guys have running AMO I won't expect much.

Good luck. The airlines are running out of qualified candidates and no poly required :)


This is not the early mid 2000s anymore. CBP can't continue to maintain that paradigm of hiring and expect to fill slots.

NYANG has a GS-13 C-17 job advertised at 173,000-226,000. That is basically starting at the salary cap and going up, can't imagine the waivers required for that. I'd imagine they will still have trouble keeping people in that job. And no way AMO would ever be able to offer a deal like that.

Bottom line, there is no money to hire AIA's until someone quits or retires. AMO is over 37 mil short on salaries. Yes, the "GOONS" at HQ leave much to be desired. For those applying beware!
