current examiners: do you find that most examiners drive to work or do they take the metro?

Who are the best people to contact regarding a JARS application?  Talking to human resources, w/all due, seems like shouting into the abyss.  Are the "hiring contacts" for the tech centers (listed on the USPTO website) a good bet?  
 
Also, anybody know if they're hiring materials scientists these days?
 
Thanks.

Parking costs 100 bucks per month, and you have to pay for gas, wear and tear on your car, etc.  The metro is free (The PTO pays for your metro and buses over 100 bucks per month).  If you can take the metro, you should do it.

Just out of curiosity... Is there a standard amount of time before an examiner becomes eligible to apply for a supervisory position? How competitive is the selection process for these positions?

 
It depends on the art unit.  
 
For my art unit, they can't even get anyone that wants the position.  They need to ship in other people from other units, or double up SPEs to multiple art units.  The turnover is so great that there is only a couple of people that are high enough to be one.
 
There are some art units with a well established SPE.  In that case, you may never get to be a SPE.
 
As far as I know, you only need to be a GS-14, so however long that would take you is the fastest you can do it.
