Easy job but supervisors micromanage to much.
Pros: good coworkers, fun job, take home car
Cons: supervisors, work lots of hours, not alot of family time
The weslaco district is ok but Too much micromanagement starting with the major and all the way down.. if ur a brown noser or are an interdictor then u have it made. U could make mistakes and they will cover you. The harder you work the more you get screwed. The lazier u are the easier u have it made so choose wisely. Very easy job over all just real stressful. Supervisors will counsel you for the littlest thing possible like insubordination. But the director always preached about "the department is not about numbers" yet weslaco district is ALL about numbers. Make sure you arrest enough drunks, and ticket speeders, seatbelt, and stop lots of CMVs because if not you WILL get a bad evaluation. So the insubordination starts with our major because he knows this very will but wont do anything about it. The brass forgot what it was like to be on the road, they have been behind a desk so long that they will hammer you for any little mistake. Some coworkers are awesome. mcallen has the worst supervisor and troops. Rio Grande city troopers on sullivan city will pull u over for no reason and make it up so watch out. So will edinburg. Other than that, the job is easy. Just work crashes and stop cars all day. You have a take home car. Also alot of wreck dodgers. I suggest go cve because those guys go to the POE undock there computer and go home. They do 5 inspections in 3 hours and claim 6 hours. Everyone in the valley knows that but they wont do anything. All they say is as long as you get ur inspections done. The inspectors at the poe bust there behinds on the inspections and the trooper gets the credit. Very unfair.
