Going to be shifting careers here in the next couple of years and was taking a look at FWC as kind of a 180 option. I know I'll be taking a major pay cut, but I more concerned about the "reality" of working for them.

Figured I would reach out and see if anyone would be willing to sit and have a beer with me to discuss the job/jobs sometime next month when I'm back in Florida?

If you have experience that you would be willing to share openly, by all means do so!

You might want to post this in the general section.
I get the odd feeling most of us on here would rather fish than work. :)
I will say that as a sworn officer of the state, your retirement benefits and pay are pretty good.

My 2 cents, don’t think you are going to be on the water all day, having fun on a boat. Being on the water recreationally vs “working” are vastly different. Plenty of woods in our state too.

That said, if you have / want to be outdoors, go for it. Mediocre pay, less risk than other LEOs, etc.

Good Luck.

FWC. Wow. SO I write newspaper articles on hunting and fishing. Called FWC in Lake City to get info on Game Wardens. Called 4-5x. No reply. Left messages. Finally got a "lady on the phone" who said the Public Affairs guy might be busy. She didn't really know because his office was "in the back." I said "well I don't know if he is busy, because I'm calling on the phone, maybe his wife is having a baby for all I know." That blew it and put me on the DO NOT CALL LIST. Happened 2 years ago, still waiting on that call. No, not really waiting. The Tallahassee main office FWC people are way better, they return phone calls. My advice -- DO IT -- join the FWC and be one of the people with integrity. Lake City FWC -- keep me on your do not call list.
