    Usually it's at least three years. There are agents with a lot more experience that get dibs first anyways.

      They hire at 5/7/9 so yes there has been people hired with just a degree right out of college.

        Looks like I'll be applying based on education alone.

        And Tampa is listed. I live in Clearwater, FL. If anyone lives around and me and wants to study for the test or whatever, then PM me.
        I'm in the same situation. Only I'm from Chicago, so I guess Chicago and maybe Detroit would be the place to apply. haha...

          If you are a current DOJ employee with a security clearance will they use that clearance and just do an update or will they start from scratch.

            if they're only looking for 25 why don't they just put out a lateral announcement instead? Not to bag on the external applicants or anything but given the tight time constraints from app to possible EOD date, wouldn't it make more sense to open it up to current 1811s?

              or they could use VRA for the short term needs.

                Because, that is a poor idea. The time constraints should not be considered tight, but rather what should be expected and is hopefully a sign that the government recognizes that the previous hiring format is not acceptable. Lateraling just fills one hole and leaves another empty.

                    I was a 2007 applicant and it me took four years from TEA to field office offer. I'm a lil skeptical to say the least that they're going to process 650 applicants in a matter of six months...Good Luck to all that apply.

                      If we've already passed the tea with another agency, do we need to retake it?

                          I don't even know if it is still going to be the TEA exam.

                            Q: I have already taken an occupational exam for another Federal agency. Do I still have to take an exam as an ATF special agent applicant?

                            All special agent applicants must take and pass the ATF Special Agent Exam and an applicant assessment test. ATF is no longer using the Treasury Enforcement Agent (TEA) Exam. Results from an ATF sponsored exam are valid for three years from the date of the exam. Sample questions for the ATF Special Agent Exam can be found at the “Careers” section of this website.

                              Just looked at the sample test questions... The actual test questions have to be considerably harder, right? We couldn't be that lucky...

                                If you have ever taken the postal inspector application exams they are almost the same... basic questions similar to the sample ones... there will be a lot of play on the words always and never and no trying to confuse you with which is correct...
