Does taking the Patent Bar Exam help or hurt the chances of becoming a Patent Examiner?

I'm a former biotech examiner, who took the Patent Bar after I left the PTO.  I never once met a new hire that had even taken the Bar, let alone passed it.  Maybe times have changed.
 
I'll say this - I don't know if the PB will help you become an examiner, but working as an examiner will really make the Bar easier - and help with future employment prospects.

Been there, done that.
 
It sucks watching people who know less than you technologically and legally make way more than you, when you can turn around and make more than them in the private sector.
 
FYI, i ain't talking about just the agents and lawyers...
