Unless you have a family I don't think housing cost is a big deal. Get roommates or live in a studio if you need to save money that badly. In the long run you could hotel and live in another state if you want to.

I didn't have any problem getting job offer with PTO since both my wife and I are experience engineer. My wife lost her job at tech firm and that why we applied and thinking moving there. Now she got new job and what I read about PTO is that it might open regional office either in Texas or Colorado. We like the job secure and benefit its offer but we have family with 2 kids and to live in the nice neighbor like we have now, the house there might be in $600K range compare $300K in Texas. I'm thinking that if it open the office in Texas next two years or so, we might take it and ask for transfer later
Anyway, any inside news would be appreciated

Hello,
 
Someone from HR told me that Center X is interested in my application. No one from X has interviewed me, so I have no idea what I would do. I think I'd be better suited for Center Y, and I only applied to Center Y, but no one from Y has contacted me. I'd like to speak with someone, but I've only had contact with HR... Should I try contacting some hiring contacts to get a better idea of what I would do for X, or to see if Y is even interested in me?  Huh
 
Any advice would be much appreciated!!!

It looks like I will be beginning the training academy on May 29th.  I have two minor questions about the office, if anyone can help.
 
1) Are camera phones allowed on-premises?
2) How long does it take to get your own office? I know you start out sharing office space... is it a matter of making Primary, or is it something you have to wait 5 or 10 years for?
 
Thanks!
