Sister @ MEPS.. Problems

My Sister is at MEPS in Dallas right now.. and even though I told her to call me before she did anything.. if she was having issues she apparently did everything then called me to complain.

So apparently they are telling her that:

- Her ASVAB Score is To High, and she is overqualified to request a few of the jobs she wanted.

- That they wont let her sign up for 6 years, and that she has to sign up for 4 year or Not be allowed into the DEP program

- They said even though she has 30+ college credits that she wont be given any Stripes for them and will have to start as an E-1



I am F**KING PISSED right now.. at the MEPS people and at her for not calling me

Aren't these things that should've been included in the initial contract with the recruiter?

Im in NC she is in TX.. i dont know what was on her original contract.. but apparently before they would let her talk to them about jobs they made her swear in and now telling her that even though she scored in the High 80s on her ASVAB.. her score is too high for the jobs she wants and she cant sign up for 6 years..

Im just pised that she didnt call me so i could yell at the MEPS people

thats lame i had a 47 ASVAB score and they put on the F-22..

But I had 72 college credit so they gave me E-3.

I would have her try to go to a different MEPS.. or have her talk to her recuiter.

Well I dont know what the fuck she is doing right now.. or If she is technically in the AF right now or not.. Im trying to figure out why they told her she cant pick the 8 jobs she wants bc her Score was too high and why she cant sign up for 6 years so she can come out of tech school as a A1C

Yep, that's a bunch of crap. I have a buddy that scored in the 90s on the ASVAB, he was gonna be a pilot but due to certain medical conditions, he wasn't allowed to pursue pilot training. Instead he went and became a sheet metal troop. I say tell her to wait. No matter what MEPS says she can wait. Have her talk to somebody else. I bet she can get this fixed in no time.

here's the thing man, to begin with this is her first learning experience that while in/dealing with the military..even if you rate something (a job, 6 year contract, food, bed...) it doesn't always mean that you are going to get it. she has to fight for what she wants because in my opinion the military doesn't care about what she wants. if they can find a way to put her where they need her then they will. and another thing that she needs to take into consideration at this time, the military needs her alot more than she needs the military. does that make sense? the ball is in her hands as they say. good luck

I dont know if she signed a contract but they had her do the right hand swear in thing before they even let her talk to a Job Person.

This Used Car salesman technique is pissing me off..


So right now they told her that she can't do the following jobs

Comptroller - (They are washing out the AFSC, contracting out the career field)
Paralegal - This job is not available out of Basic and is only open as a Special Duty
Radio /TV Brodcast ( Her recruiter failed to have her to a Pre-requisit to apply for this job)
Personal relations (Currently No Openings available between now and Oct, they denied her to even put it on her list)


_______________________


Also I just found out her Recruiter is PCSing out of Recruiter status and back to the Real AF, and basicly pushed all of her shit off to the side and didnt submit her college/HS transcripts and basicly put her on the back burner bc he is done being a recruiter in the next couple weeks.

__________________________________

Her new Recruiter said he will do his best to resolve the issues resubmit her Transcripts and get her a new DEP contract and work on the issue about signing up for 6 years and pickig the jobs she wants.

if she gets the credits in, there will be no ned for the 6 year enlistment to get the E-3...make sure she knows that.

side note, they are converging 2E, 3A, and 3C into 3D, so that'll be my new AFSC come november
