    • Oct 14 here as well waiting for the call. November is full and December and January are the next dates from what I hear as well. The calls are coming guys so just sit back and relax.

        • Just took my poly, not feeling very confident right now that I will get to move on, sucks too since I have been a fed for 7 years. Keeping my fingers crossed for no letter.

            • Sooo is there any reason to be concerned about the fact that the soon to be president has stated he wants to freeze all federal hiring...?

                A campaign statement said that Trump would institute “a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health).” #MAGA!

                  I do believe there was more than that.....something to the effect of "with the exception of public safety". Something like that...

                  • Also, he isn't in office for two more months so the next two classes should be okay I would imagine even if they did. But who knows. I do know its a great day to be in the Border Patrol...never thought Id say that.

                    • All the hiring is filling open positions so there's that too. Hopefully we'll be fine but there's nothing like throwing a curve ball into the process again!

                      • Even if he meant it and even if he meant to include Fed LEOs in that freeze, things have a way of changing between campaign podium and after they are briefed for the first time on security issues.

                        Guantanamo is still open after 8 years.

                          I feel pretty confident that the hiring right now is for when members retire. We are at our cap, but folks are steadily retiring.

                          • Ah gotcha, makes sense. Just fill the spots once people retire

                              Plus, they can look and see who is "mandatory retirement" and tailor the number to be hired from that.

                              • Not to change the subject, but I can 100% dispel one of the rumors floating around on the forum. ATF will not automatically DQ those who have to make changes to their eqips more than three times.
