    • For you April 16 folks, the information I received was that interviews are supposed to be completed by sometime in April. I had mine this week.

        • Has anyone heard anything concrete about the budget proposal and how that will alter the ATF?

After my interview was over I was told that the next step would be the background and don't expect to hear anything for about 6-9 months. I was also told that if I were to get hired I was realistically looking at sometime in 2019.

            One other thing that came out of left field was that ATF could possibly no longer accept age waivers for those over 37 even if we are currently covered under 6C retirement. Now, that was unconfirmed and just talk at this point. The panel just wanted to be open and honest with me which I greatly appreciated. This took me by surprise and I hope it doesn't turn out to be true. Also, everything is subject to change especially with the changes the current administration is making everyday. The process could speed up, slow down, or come to a complete halt.

            There you have it. Just my experience and what I was told this week.
            I am a May 16 Applicant and the individuals interviewing me literally said the same thing to me. I appreciate that they were honest, guess they don't want anyone to unrealistically get their hopes up Have to stay positive regardless.

              I was told that the "hiring freeze" and "budget cuts" refers to non-essential federal employees. We are a federal law enforcement agency and would typically not be considered for something like that. All those going through the hiring process will continue to do so. May slow things down but SLOW progress is better than NO progress.

              • Hello. Long time follower, first time posting. I am a October 2015 applicant patiently waiting. Can anyone shed light on when we may receive the next piece of correspondence? I had LASIK back on September and re sent my medical documents in January-- nothing since. Not even medical clearance. It is my understanding I am waiting on official medical clearance and a call? -- Thanks for all your input.

                  I may possibly need to get LASIK and I just had my interview. When would you recommend I get it and what kind exactly. I cant afford it just yet so i have been trying to save up.

                          I'm in the same boat, submitted medical info and waiting. I had my last correspondence in late Feb for a second clarification with medical. So they are not backed up a six months or more. My original submission was reviewed and generated a second request within 3 or 4 weeks.

                          If I were to guess we'll hear something late spring to mid summer for FY 18 classes.

                          • Let's hope. I reached out to the person who sent my medical and she said she has everything she needs so I guess it is being reviewed, for 3 months. Hopefully we will at least have some dialogue in the near future. I reached out to some of my contacts including former ATF and they couldn't even get an answer for me.

                            • I'm wanting to say that I saw on a previous page that only one person handles the medical follow-ups. That could be a reason for it taking so long. Honestly it's probably irrelevant because all the classes for this FY are full anyway. I'm in the same boat. Waiting for medical, BI, and final preference.

                                Sounds about right. I had my medical in August 2016 and polygraph in October. I haven't heard a thing since. Not a medical follow up or clearance.
