Hey everyone im mostly just a lurker on this board picking up the bits and pieces of info i can. But yesterday a friend of mine said he had an interview coming up with the Federal Air Marshals service. I dont really know much about them other then that they fly and deal with problems on planes mostly. He said i should apply, does anyone here know anything about them? Good Bad or ugly?

If you think about it, I would say it can be a boring job...a stepping stone rather than something that (I, personally) would want to do for a long time. A magazine had an article about them a few years ago...I can't for the life of me remember what mag it was though.

Think about it...you're on a plane for 8+ hours a day, and you can't sleep...and all you do is fly from place to place...and deal with (most of) the inconveniences of commercial flying...

I have a friend who is a Federal Air Marshal, he does the transatlantic route
you would work irregular hours.. depending on what flight you are on


if u like flying and airports then go for it.
But as Frank said it can be a bit boring.. but then again u might
enjoy it.

good luck anyway!

I was under the impression these were relatively sought after, "you have to know someone" type jobs...

Frank, American Police Beat did an article on the FAM a few years back. Talked about how a lot of the people who joined up after 9/11 were jumping ship to other federal agencies.
