Station type of work - Your first three years are line watch. After that is when the details start. The rotating Xs are good. After sitting for two hours you go to backup, and you can drive around, work traffic, and take a break to eat etc. Yes, at our station even the Xs get to work traffic including mota and some coke/heroin lately. It is much different (for the better) than when I first started.
Lots of work and collateral duties (bikes, ATVs, BORCAP, prosecutions, etc) for you to stay away from the line if you want. A pretty challenging FTO program. Lots of criminal aliens, gang-bangers, and maggots and a lot of dope.
Shopping - All the Major companies are out here.
Eateries - All the Major Rests. And Fast Food places.
Local Internet Providers - Road Runner is the high speed cable modem
Other Services – Dish Network / Direct TV

El Paso is not a bad place to be. If you live on the West side it is pretty clean and the crime is very low. The Northeast is full of crime (that is where Ft. Bliss is, seems like there is a bad neighborhood just outside every military base) and there are plenty of stash houses there, along with plenty of IAs, because we don't usually go up there.
The east side is dusty and there is plenty of trash in the streets and the service at the restaurants leaves something to be desired. Avoid central El Paso.
The Upper Valley is full of trees and mosquitoes not to mention lots of big, expensive houses. The Lower Valley is where the action is, if you are into smuggling. There are mostly trailer houses and stray dogs there. It is a lower income area for the most part but there are some nice, quiet places here and there.
Some of the best Mexican food restaurants anywhere for an excellent price (they got to be better than grandma's cooking and that is hard to do).
We have all the amenities except a major sports team and Six Flags.
Worst thing about El Paso, No Major attractions/Not enough children's
doctors, average wait to see a doctor is 4-8 hours.
Best Thing about El Paso, on 30k you live like a king/Queen..lol
