  • Just passing along this info from a reliable source (upper management type) but word is 2 classes FY20 and no classes FY21. I don"t have ANY other info than what I just posted so I can't answer any other questions or elaborate on that info whatsoever.

      HAHAHAHAHA! The last sentence in your post had me rolling because you know people are still going to ask.

  • Has anyone heard (or has anyone personally) of someone receiving disclosure form and not getting a call for the next class? I received my disclosure form over a month ago but haven’t gotten a call. And I’m sure the august class is full by now. Just curious if anyone knows if this is common or not. Thanks in advance y’all!

      Yeah, I got the NDF and never got the call

  • Anybody know what to expect after the poly? Besides a whole lot of waiting around.

      If you pass, they will send you the same forms you submitted before it and you do those again. Then you should get contacted by the background investigator. They never tell you that you passed, but the forms are indicative of a successful exam.

      I received the forms last week. I sent them back and got fingerprinted again this week. I’m not 100% sure but my BI may transition over. If so, would that be the last step before being hired?

      Yeah that would be the last thing you would have to do. The rest is on HR to send you a preference sheet, a disclosure form, and then hopefully the selection panel smiles favorably upon your application and then you get the call.

      And at this point since we missed August a call might be in February?? No telling. Many of us are done with everything and waiting for the selection panel to find we are next.

  • I had my background done like two years ago--- Is it fair to assume if you haven't heard anything, you passed? I've gotten updated medical forms etc. I am in the process with another fed agency and want to be accurate with my status with ATF but since there is little communication about the process, I can't neccesarily accurately inform them.

      I’m sure you passed or you would get a thanks but no thanks by now. Plus they typically give a pre-clearance so you can EOD before background is adjudicated. I’m sure you would know by now if something was wrong. No news is good news.

  • Does anyone have any info on classes for FY20? Any ideas as to how many and when they might be? I’ve heard only one class supposed to be scheduled but that wasn’t a for sure thing.

      A few posts back, someone said that there will be 2 for FY20.

  • Testing started back again for new applicants.

      How do new applicants apply?

  • Does anyone have an idea of how long it takes to hear back on the results from the panel interview?

      It took me like five months.

      Was about 2 months for me to hear back on results. Of course, that was almost 3 years ago so it could be different now.

  • Any current 1811’s hear anything recently?

        Not sure if this was in jest or not, but I did hear from one of my contacts that rumor going around is they got more funding than expected and plan to run more classes now.

        He’s an agent who’s been posting on this forum since before you knew it or ATF existed. So I’d say it’s well sourced.

        That would give many of us 2016 people hope. I’ve taken a promotion and bought a house but it’s a dream job so bring it on.

    • I heard the same thing from someone that was down at FLETC. What he said was two classes for FY20 and 10 for FY21.

      Anyone have any idea if that could possibly mean more classes for FY20? I don’t know a lot about the budgets so idk if they have to wait until 21 or what.

      • I don't know if this will cause delays...

        Actually it may be a good thing. The DoD wasn't affected during the shutdown.

          Spoke to someone working at FLETC who also verified the possibility of hiring 200+ in 21. I also heard (yesterday) that our acting director requested to increase our cap by 500 agents.

            Is there any chance there could be more classes for 2020 then or is that already set in stone?

        • Well this is the end of the line for me. ATF says I failed the poly.

          I've passed three polys before this one (including one for my current agency), so I don't know what ATF saw that the others didn't. For those who will be taking the poly, I would say my best advice is to tell the truth, but I can't even be sure of that anymore. Good luck everyone.
          OUT!!

            I would be LYING if I said I wasn't ****ed off, but what can I do? I figure if you take as many polys as I have then you'll crap out at some point in the game. Or maybe...ATF just wasn't meant for me and there is something better on the horizon. Or...as I have said before...the poly is junk science that depends on the examiner and not the machine. Either way, I always thought that unfavorable poly results is a crappy way to be booted from the process.

        • Any hope of a class being started before the end of the year? Or does the current CR in place make chances slim?

          • I received another preference sheet yesterday, check your inboxes.
