I'm trying to qualify for a GL-5 pay grade. I'm substituting work experience and college experience for it. On the application it says "full-time" experience for 1 year minimum. Well, here is where it gets tricky. I was a firefighter for 2 years. I've been an EMT for 2 years. Both volunteers. Now I work in a Psych Ward, Flex-Time, and have been for a few months now. Do you think I need to stop the application and look for employment with another agency? It is a Federal Law Enforcement agency.
