DOL investigator benefits? (LEAP?!!!)
OK so I just put in for and faxed in my transcripts (what happened to uploading) for the Department of labor investigator FCI (federal career intern) position in OH, the vacancy announcement said they were not law enforcement and did not carry firearms (Duh, their 1801) but they were eligible for law enforcement benefits it some cases, I thought those were reserved for sworn people only.

Firstly, 1801 doesn't mean anything when it comes to carrying weapons, as TDF said. Federal Air Marshals are under the 1801 series, and they are definitely armed.
As far as the DOL investigator position goes, I'm pretty sure that one you're talking about is as a Pension Investigator. Those guys sometimes work with racketeering investigations concerning labor unions, which are criminal in nature. The investigators assigned to those task forces get 6C coverage, however, those positions are few and far between, usually taken by senior investigators. The way it was explained to me, most of their cases aren't criminal in nature.
Overall, I think being an investigator for DOL is a great job! If you're all about having a badge and gun, this definitely isn't the job for you. However, I find the work interesting and challenging. Everyday there's something different to do, and the people within the organization are great!

nsedet beat me to the punch... I was going to correct myself today. I checked while I was at work, and I realized the position you were talking about was not for a Pension Investigator, but OLMS Investigators (Office of Labor Management Standards). There were a few Pension Investigator posititon at the GS-9, but when I got to work and looked, I saw it wasn't what you were talking about.
I still stand behind what I said about DOL being a great place to work.... good luck!
