  • I reached out to a contact in recruiting and heard nothing. I don't think anybody really knows right now. I can say the ATF budget for 2013 did not read expansion, hell...don't even know if they'd have to hire to backfill agents they lose. Total agents numbers were proposed down.

            • I didn't receive an email or letter after I interviewed last year with any results. I just assumed I didn't make it. I was at least hoping since I was selected to interview that I'd be eligible for an upcoming class. Looks like that's not happening anytime soon. Very disappointing.....

              • My friend who applied last year got a call today - short notice fill for a West coast location. She had to turn it down since her hubby is an agent on the East coast. Just thought I would let you guys know.

                  No offers were made today. ATF called all of us (veterans) who made it all the way through last announcement and asked us if we are still interested and if so, send a copy of our DD214 and VA rating document.

                  • Yes. I got this call yesterday. Sounds like good news to me.

                      Just received same call. Sounds like this might start picking up some traction again.

                      • I think ATF will use direct hiring athority to hire some of us. Probably VRA, because veterans can be placed in GS9 and below positions directly and without a open competitive hire process.

                        • I will not hold my breath for it. We all got called and its look like we all got asked to go to same place. Something weird about that, don’t you all think? Plus I don’t really believe that budget will pass before March 01, which means cuts and no hiring (but I may be wrong).

                          • I got the call yesterday as well. On the original announcement I completed the interview, but was not contacted for the poly.

                            To the others that have posted they were contacted for their vet preference documents, did you finish all the stages?

                            ATF is my ideal agency, but I am familiar enough with the false starts and budget dilemmas to know that this could mean absolutely nothing.

                            I asked if there was an issue with the vet documents I sent previously and what I could expect as a next step. She said that OPM had the documents and they could get them from OPM, but it's faster/easier to get them from the applicants and I could expect further contact "sooner rather than later". I also asked if she needed my transcripts or an updated resume (addition of a Masters since the last announcement). She said she would get back to me on that, but not at this point.

                            I have optimistically mixed feelings on what this means, if anything. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

                              I know a few of us were contacted in the beginning of the week by ATF. We all completed the poly, BI, and Medical.

                              • Sooner rather than later sounds good but after last time I am guarded to get my hopes up on anything.
