  • I'm guessing the dec and January class are to cover retirees already timing out then?

      Plus, they can look and see who is "mandatory retirement" and tailor the number to be hired from that.
      Yeah, maybe, but I heard people can apply for extensions to continue to serve.

        That's good to hear. It doesn't make sense to ditch someone because of E-qip errors or corrections.

          I called and verified the same. The person on the other end had a good chuckle and appreciated the laugh.

            The classes are already scheduled with exact dates. ATF is changing the way that they hire and plan but I don't think it will come into effect until the FY18 classes. If you're in the pipe and have at least a poly/med clearance then I think you should be in good shape.

            • How are they changing the way they hire and plan? I'm post poly so I doubt it will change my status but I'm curious

                It's really just how to better strategize the hiring instead of rushing to push people through with Schedule B. They want to have a pool of applicants ready to go and people coming through at a normal rate instead of all of the sudden having 250 new SA's every year going to the field. That's what I gathered.

                  Schedule B will be coming back around again....

                    Tis' true, HOWEVER, extremely hard to come by. I know two solid guys that tried and were declined. The knowledge they will take with them will be sorely missed.

                      FD are you able to confirm or deny this post from a few weeks back?

                      • I think the question is, filled with whom? Does anyone know the number of us post interview? I know we aren't all the applicants on this board, but I cannot imagine they have 150+ in each group post interview. Anyone know roughly how many people each FO recommends for the application link, on average? Here I am again trying to make sense of the longest hiring process in which I am likely to be involved with.

                        • There were less than 20 of us total from the office I applied through so I doubt that there could be a large group post interview.

                          • it was not true. I called HR last week since I have had my preference sheet for two months. All they would say is the classes for FY17 haven't been filled yet and to be patient.
