The second post above was a statement by the contact people in regard to the postings at the web address given by Pat Grant.  
 
Take from it what you may.  
 
Pat Grant seems to have an axe to grind.

Axe to grind? LOL  No, no axe to grind.  Just an observation based on years of experience and grumblings out of the PTO.  Like I said, nothing against the PTO or the good folks there, they just seem to have a problem competing with private sector jobs that pay much better.
 
Some people are so sensitive, geez!   Grin
 
Best of luck to you John, I think you've got a good shot at landing a job there.

The Patent Office Professional Organization's website offers an insider's view on Examiner work issues.  
 
The website claims that "POPA represents more than 3,900 employees, the vast majority of whom are patent examiners", in a quote from 2003. I don't know if their viewpoints are commonplace in the examining corps, however.
