Thinking about applying for an air safety inspector job for the airlines. But first I have to redo my entire resume in their byzanitine format. Why is the government like this? Would the whole thing just be an exercise in screaming "there's a less stupid way to do this!"?

You should see it from the INSIDE.

Itís like a clown car of failure.

Actually, they won't change their job application system, because if you're already frustrated at the applying-for-a-job stage, you absolutely will not last long as a Federal employee and they should've just hired someone else anyway

I've been hired for one of those jobs. I'm actually amazed that the one shows not hired. I think that's the first time there has been any sort of change in status in under 6 months.

If you're applying for the same job types it gets easier as you can just update forms and poo poo. It's still an annoying mess and you get pretty much zero feedback and are just left in the dark about anything that's happening with the hiring process.

Yeah, I figured it was the first test.

Just got the email that says we're going 5 on 5 off starting June 7th. I was expecting it because of the weather, still sucks. One of the reasons they're giving for it is because of prime time leave. Who the gently caress is going to be using leave right now? Apparently several airlines are planning to increase flights starting in June too. Because I'm sure that the demand will be there since passengers are only down 95% right now.

No, but Iím pretty sure all the cars in the parking lot were toast. It got into some of the ancillary buildings.

I'd be so pissed if my car got flooded at work. Hail is super likely at both facilities I've worked at and I've accepted that it's inevitable, but flooding? I assume that has happened before?

Not in anyoneís memory. Past couple days were pretty wet even by south Florida standards, and Miamiís flooding troubles are getting worse.

What you're insinuating is extremely illegal in Florida...

I had water roll over the hood of my volt once from an unexpectedly deep parking lot exit. That scared me more than the time I felt my Camaro float.

Sadly, neither of those stories are STDH. I wish they were.
