  • ATF November 2017 applicant. Throughout the process, seems like there was 4 months in between steps. This month however, I've received the e-QIP invite, did the polygraph and just got an email to do my medical.... is it normal to do those steps in one month or are things just starting to move faster??

      It’s anyone’s guess, it’s great you did the polygraph so soon though. My medical was a year after I applied and my poly a year after that. The testing steps did happen about every four months though. So to answer your question... nobody knows and your process could be quicker in some ways but then slower for let’s say... medical.

      It's a long process and different speed and times for everyone it seems like.

  • I wouldn’t use normal and Atf process in the same sentence!!

    • Has anyone heard a solid date for the August academy yet? Anyone get “the call” for it yet?

        Nope, wonder if that means we missed the boat or they hadn’t notified yet. Anyone know when the August academy starts?

        If someone got "the call" they wouldn't tell you on here. You are specifically told not to post on any forums or social media about getting hired. Just fyi

    • Columbus, OH had an info session back on 5/21/19. There were several people there, and folks were informed that their panel would be selecting 20 individuals to move forward, and that they’d make those selections by that Thursday as those names had to be passed to OPM by 5/24. We were informed that if we were selected we would be provided a link by OPM to go and apply through USAJobs. We were also told the SA Exam was scheduled for July and the PAT was scheduled for October. Anyone know how long it takes to hear from OPM after the info session if we were one of the 20 selected to move forward? Likewise, if anyone here was in the Columbus info session on 5/21, have you heard anything yet? Best of luck to all in the process already!

        Heard from reliable source that selection committee meets in the next few weeks, so August is still a possibility. Sounds like maybe end of June/beginning of July calls may go out? Also, sounds like August academy is “second week” of August. Unsure if that is second full week or not.

        I guess you all are talking about two different things. One being an invite to apply and the other being a call for hire. I’ve also heard about an August academy but I have no idea when the panel meets. Based on previous posts it’s likely selections hadn’t been made yet. I say this because it seems calls go out 4-6 weeks prior to academy. I assume this because those who posted last year about receiving NDAs no longer post on here so I’d assume they received calls but can’t post it. Just thought, I’m still hanging onto hope.

        Northerly from what I’ve heard I believe that is correct about selections not being made yet. Hopefully phones start buzzing here in a couple weeks...

    • That’s my fault. I was looking for anyone in here that went to the Columbus, OH info session on 5/21. However, if anyone can recall, I’d like to know how long after the info session they received an invite to apply from OPM.

      • Hey guys, I'm a May '16er. Just curious, how many May '16ers are still here? And for that matter are there any 2015 applicants that are still waiting?

          Yep, me too! My process froze after the medical, which was exactly one year ago. The next step was supposed to be the drug test. Honestly, I know why they didn't do it at the medical exam.

          April 2015 here.... just took the poly and medical, again. Did them both in 2016. I have lost count on pref sheets, but recently received another one.

      • anyone get the disclosure form yet?

          Which means if you don’t have one you’re probably not getting hired this year.. which is disappointing for most of us.

          Exactly.....they said start looking towards next fiscal year, but "they don't know" when or how many classes are scheduled....so tired of the blatant BS

          Remember: no news is good news...unless of course you really want the job and you’ve been waiting for 3 or 4 years. Then no news sucks.

          What is a disclosure form?

      • Do they only give the disclosure forms to people slated for the next class?

          Yes that's my understanding.

      • I might be beating a dead horse here but I just talked to HQ. The class in August is full and is the last one for FY19. They don't have any word on classes for FY20 yet.

          Did they mention if everyone in the class had been notified? I heard someone received a non-disclosure today.

          I called the number and they picked up first ring. The guy told me my status and where everything was to that point. I actually told another person on this forum who I have been talking to to also call and they were able to get through to them as well. They didnt say anything for the next FY.

          So after I wrote the above comment, I emailed HR again, and they replied by asking if I received an email from them in October containing security forms...Um...NO! They "re-sent" the alleged email; I filled out the forms; and then I sent them back. They subsequently sent me an email stating they received the forms, so we shall see what happens next.

          They know damn well they didn't send me an email in October. If that were so, then the subject of a previously sent email would have come up in my last 7 email-outreach attempts. By the way, I looked through my spam and everything and I could not find the email that they supposedly sent. I searched using the term "ATF." All that came up were previous application related emails (which go back to 2016) and my attempts at reaching THEM.

      • About two weeks ago I got a call from their HR asking if I would have put Tallahassee FL on my top 5 for the preference sheet. I told them no it wouldnt have been and that was the last I had heard. I called the prospective agent hotline on Friday and they said everyone's in the process of being notified. I'm guessing that means offers have gone out but they anticipate people saying no. I asked about the Tallahassee call and they said they had some unexpected retirements and were looking to fill that office.

          I don’t remember Tallahassee on the last few preference sheets. I live an hour in a half from there. I’d have put that down quick!
