I agree with Jackie on this Heather. Having worked in an exact environment
that you work in (A Navy Hospital) I can tell you that the military and the
GS have a totally different mindset than the "real world". I did it for 14
years (I won't tell you which side). Just face up to it because you will
always have some sort of a military vs. GS conflict. You can try to rattle
the military paths cage but to him you will be "the civilian" and if you
make too many waves then you will be a "trouble making civilian". 
It sounds like you do not have a very supportive GS chain at your hospital.
Most likely your GS boss is on the clinical side and considers the AP side
the "stepchild" of the lab. Maybe he/she lacks the backbone to support you.
It is all about getting through another day without any bother for most. 

As for the GS PD... I bet you and your worker have a little sentence at the
end of it that reads "All other duties assigned", or something like it. 

The GS pay system is below standard and the benefits are not what they used
to be. Is it really worth the headache? 

No offense to the GS workers out there. I appreciate your tolerance.

Heather - 
If you're not active duty, why don't you get out of that job?   Seems like 
you've been struggling a long time there - -maybe that job just isn't the 
right fit.
Best wishes,

[Histonet] Processing

  Well anybody who is a GS, if you know a friend of a friend, they will 
you a job. I agree military believe that civilians are enlisted people, 
think that you can be cross trained in every department, like a corpsman.
Unfortunately, that is why we have work pd's. Civilian vs. military is not 
great interface. A lot of problems are not dealt with until they directly
affect that person. Anyways, to the person who said, "report it to CAP".
What will they do? At this point, I wish it was easy to say that this 
could label slides. The accessioning process after 60 days is a nightmare.
I've repeated, visually shown, written things down and this lady is still
struggling. But for those who are not GS. A GS 7 can not train a GS 7, nor
the secretary at GS 5, can not train a GS 7. The work PD does not state 
So right now there is a major violation going on. This lady just happened 
want a GS job so badly, she might have sold her soul to the devil to get 
and now she is paying dearly. So she is on a year probation, and I'm 
a rock and a hard place because she is not capable of performing the job. 
have already rattled the pathologists cage, and I am getting ignored. I'm
just as guilty of standing by and doing nothing when patient care is being
compromised and when there is a problem, military come after the civilian
and pin the blame on you. That is why the BS is unreal and very very
political. I am debating whether to tell the CO. What should I do? That is 
trickle down effect and there will be retaliation. Anybody have any ideas 
what I should do? Let it go,  or go to the top and than commanders will 
some serious heat. Regardless oh how this situation is dealt with the
nending is not going to be nice. I don't want this woman to lose her job 
than again she is incompetent. All opinions appreciated.
