Could someone come in as a GS11 and be able to learn the job and handle the quota within a 1-yr probabtionary period?  If so, do you thinks it's possible without much OT?

If you lived there, you would extol it too.

The quota is not a big deal if you're somewhat disciplined to merely work during work hours (imagine that!).  If you get placed in an art unit whose subject matter you enjoy reading about, there should be no problem.
 
What few people realize is that, just as some people don't like technical reading and would much rather do something hands-on (actual engineering), there are a lot of people for whom the opposite is true.  If you feel like you're part of the latter, then patent examining will not be too stressful and actually somewhat enjoyable to an extent.  
 
Or disregard this post as some management related shill, I don't care.

I do live there and have for some time. Don't be so defensive, it was a f-ing joke.

I love it! "... somewhat enjoyable to an extent." That pretty much sums it up - what a resounding vote of confidence ... or at least a somewhat resounding vote ... to an extent....
 
OK, you say "some people" don't enjoy reading technical material and then go on to say that "a lot" of people do. Come on now, i think its the other way around! You have to at least sound reasonable to be taken seriously. The rate that people leave this job is astounding, and the government has recognized this fact repeatedly, so if you enjoy it then good for you but don't misrepresent reality.
