  • If it affects the PAQ it will only be a 90 day delay, which is nothing. The DEV announcement from June 2011 had a 180 hiring freeze, then Christmas/New Years. People who applied in June didn't hear until January 2012! At least the PAQ applicants heard they were moving forward before the hiring freeze.

    • I'm also in the DEV process from June 2011 and still waiting for an EOD. I am just trying to stay patient with the process.

      • Hang in there Marie! Being patient is all we can do...I act as if I never applied and continue to build my resume! We will get the call one day...

        • Received an email about 2 weeks ago from OSI recruitment indicating that those that had already accepted a tentative job offer are not subject to the civilian hiring freeze even if they do not yet have an EOD.

          • Same here, which was good news.

              From what I heard, they're most likely waiting on the potential civilian furlough discussion. As of right now, theres a fairly good chance all DoD civilians (with some exceptions) will be reduced to four days a week over a 5 month period, cutting our pay 20% when the automatic cuts start March 1st. I know anyone deployed is exempt, but they may not be able to justify sending someone to FLETC during the furlough since you would be in class 5 days a week..

              • Seems like they may be waiting to bring on anyone, even those with an EOD now. Anyone have any more info on this?

                    • Is anyone familiar with trying to go the commissioned officer route for AFOSI-SA? I talked to an Air Force recruiter that gave me the biggest f*&^&* run around in my life. It appears hiring boards are held every March for AFOSI officers but it's extremely selective. I thought about enlisting but realized a E-3 with a Masters Degree just didn't add up to me. The civilian route of employment with AFOSI seems damn near impossible. just my 2 cents

                        It is very competitive. First you have to be selected an a nonprior service officer which is hard as hell. Then you have to be selected to be an OSI Agent. I applied last year and I did not get selected as an Officer so I didn't even make it to the OSI board. My dad is a retired Air Force 1 star and all 5 of my letters of recommendation were from Col or above and I have a masters. So yes OSI is very difficult to get on board with.

                        • AFOSI selects approximately 10-15 officers each year. Normal Air Force recruiters know very little about the OSI officer selection process since it is a unique board. If you are not currently in a commissioning source (i.e. ROTC or Air Force Academy), trying to get in as an officer is not a realistic option.

                            I guess if you're prior service Army the enlisted route is equally competitive. Do you have to serve in the Air Force before you go the enlisted route?

                              I am not familiar with the entire process but I believe you need to be an E-5 at the minimum before you are considered as an AFOSI candidate.

                              • Yes, you do have to be a member of the Air Force to apply for an enlisted special agent slot.
