  1. VU tried charging us $3,500 in origination fees. They also overcharged us for the VA appraisal. I switched to PenFed 20 days before closing and ended up coming in almost $4k below what VU had estimated for closing.

  2. It’s been a good minute since I’ve had to do TESA. The last time I did it, the contract company that hired me had a canned TESA resume that they used. It’s not really you that needs to worry about it. Whoever hires you has to submit it. Even if it says you need a degree, it can be substituted by work experience. I would just apply for the job, then worry about it only after you are selected.

  3. All the contracting jobs I ever landed were listed on clearancejobs.com back in the day. I’ve been GS for about 8 years now, so things may have changed a bit.

  4. Sounds like you work for the department of defense. There are other agencies that are incredible to work for, just have to keep trying.

  5. My 14 year old son was just diagnosed with EDS. he has been having gran mal and absence seizures since he was 12. I worry about his quality of life and his ability to have a life and family of his own one day. I dont mind if he has to live with me the rest of his life, but I think he minds. I am also curious what other people with EDS and epilepsy do for work and if they live on their own. He has been taking Lamictal every day for two years which also worries me.

  6. NASA is a super cool place to work, but if it’s at Kennedy Space Center you will struggle to afford to live here as a GS 12.

  7. Right on, we are hoping that there will be a significant locality adjustment for this area to match the new cost of living. Which branch / division are you interviewing with?

  8. The maestro rr2 is out of stock everywhere. I’ve been waiting on one for a while.

  9. Typically you would have only needed a clearance if you were an RTO or dealing with comsec. 11B’s don’t need a clearance otherwise.

  10. Came in 2016 recently separated and had a secret clearance in basic your recruiters are “supposed” to make sure you have one🤷‍♂️

  11. I’m curious which center you will be going to that is in an expensive area. I am guessing California or DC, although space coast is expensive now too. Your hiring manager has the authority to approve up to a step 5. Anything above 5 requires higher authority. Are you on boarding as a term NTE 6 years? That’s is pretty common for folks who aren’t already NASA employees. When I accepted my term I was able to negotiate a 13 step 2 to match my current salary.

  12. So if I sit down at a poker table with my kids college money and lose, it’s the fault of the person who beats me? Poor melvin… gambling with teacher pensions.

  13. Same here, don’t go out, do want any new friends and I am actually thinking about leaving my job because of all the stupid fucking “team building” and touchy feely bullshit they like to do.

  14. That's the culture we live in now. "Let's be close and have peace....but you better fucking walk on eggshells around me and be 1000% politically correct and do everything I demand because I'm very easily offended and I'll report you or out you on social media and attempt to get you canceled from life!"

  15. You are right and I’m already in the process. I apply for every remote position that I am qualified for on usajobs. 100% remote means I can live out in the country side as long as there’s internet.

  16. Yes, I did exactly this. I was active duty for 9 years and bought it back working as a GS for DoD. It cost me about $6000. I left federal service then came back to work for NASA. Once I onboarded, my buy back was transferred from DoD to NASA through eOPF. Once you buy the years back they are yours.

  17. I just made sure that I paid the buyback off in full and received the letter of fulfillment before leaving DoD. I gave the letter to my new unit HR and let them do whatever it is they do to pull it across to the new agency.

  18. The base pay for a GS11 is $56,983. You will also get a locality percentage based on where you live, the lowest of which is 16.20% which puts you at a minimum of $66,314 as a GS11 step 1. Not sure where you got $59k from. The federal retirement and benefit system makes the job attractive despite the lower salary. Federal careers are “back loaded”, meaning you get the benefit at the end. Once you are in and start getting promoted the money isn’t too bad. You can easily make 6 figures and if you have any military time, it counts towards your overall time in civil service.

  19. Very true, and I got the $59k based off of GS9 I would start as

  20. Ohhh right on, it’s a 9, 11, 12 position. Those are actually great if you learn fast. You will be a 12 step 1 in two years and one day. That’s a pretty solid career choice. None of us are out here getting rich from federal service, but the retirement and work / life balance is pretty good. I left contracting for GS and once I hit 20 years federal I will go back to contracting, preferably overseas with the foreign earned income tax exemption.

  21. I am pretty sure the US spends more than 43b annually on foreign aid, and that hasn’t solved much. And who the fuck put Margaret in charge of Elon’s money anyway?

  22. Let your fellow Tarnished know that they “don’t have the right” by placing stupid fucking messages every inch around every interactive object across the map… because it’s super helpful and also very clever…😐

  23. I wear my old PT pants at the gym cuz I like how they fit, but I hate wearing just about anything else related. It's such an attention grab.

  24. I still wear my PT belt to Publix so I don’t get run over in the parking lot.

  25. It might be slightly different across agencies, but typically he can’t just be fired…unless he is still on probation. Even still, he should have been counseled and placed on a Performance improvement plan. The counseling should clearly outline all of the performance elements that need to be improved. After the plan is put into action he will have a chance to improve and be re-evaluated. Check this link from OPM and read about Special Considerations.

  26. LMFAO the New Balance… they need to be grass stained from mowing.

  27. She has that same soulless sociopathic look similar to Elizabeth Holmes.

  28. For what purpose? I'm wildly uncomfortable with that.

  29. Somehow I remember hearing that you had to use the machine a minimum of three hours a night. If you don’t, the VA would reassess your rating for sleep apnea.

  30. Not true. The rating is given if you receive the CPAP as a medical necessity. Whether you use it or not has no bearing on your rating.

  31. If that’s the case then I wouldn’t worry about whether or not the machine sends them any data.
