      No ATF doesn’t match pay unless you’re below a GS11.

      Yeah max they go is 9 step 10. Pretty hard for current 1811s to go to that if you're a high 12/13

  • None. You will either come in as a GS-5, GS-7 or GS-9. If you are already with the federal system the best they can do is a GS-9 Step 10 but that is it.

      Yeah thats what I have been told as well. Thats unfortunate

  • Hearing that there is going to be two classes in FY 20 and 10+ classes in FY 21 depending on budget. HQ is pushing hard to increase our agent cap. Also heard of a 4 year in the process applicant getting placed in an academy for FY 20 so if you have been on the ride for a while there is hope!

      I will definitely be at 4 years before I get hired. May 16 applicant, pending BI even tho have a current Tier 5 BI.

  • Here is an article from October 13th- that tends to align with the mass hiring requests.

    Additionally, here is a timeframe and update about myself. I screened in Feb 2016 and applied in May 2016. PT test Jan 2017. Then ATF lost me until finally in November 2018 a recruiter fixed it and I interviewed. Completed medical in July, and BI interview in September 2019.

    Hoping this stirs the forum up a little- feel free to PM as well if you're a lurker.

      Cool, than you should hope for the interview then within 45 days or so... based on the recent timelines of this process. Did you ever get a medical clearance email?

      Yeah last year lol. I waited a while for the poly after that. Over a year wait. Have to forget you even applied to ATF.

      Ha! Thats true- I tried in 2017... thought I would check in- and I learned they had no record I even applied or did PT test! From what it appears if your medical clearance goes over a year you "renew paperwork" but after two years you have to redo it? Have you experienced that?

  • I attended an info session in May. Was informed that make the cut (BA degree, several years of LE exp) Received a phone call/email for an agent last week to send him an updated copy of my resume and to attend an information session. He said a lot has/will be changing.

        I had 12 hours... wonder the difference?

    • Has anyone gotten a NDA since the new fiscal year? Or heard of any dates for the first class?

        Nope, looking for that email but I still will be shocked if I get it since this is preference sheet 3.

        So is that the first of supposedly two classes for FY20 or is that a class with leftover funding from 19?
