    Depends on the district and if they are hiring for a certain number or one slot or a hiring pool. I applied in May 2008 and was notified in July or August of that year. Mine was also a POA position so not sure if it would have been the same as a line officer position. Month wait is not out of the norm if there were interviews scheduled behind yours.

    To those who are currently USPO's on the forum, how did you find out you were selected: mail or phone? Also how long did it take from interview to offer?

    It's been over a month since I interviewed. I didn't know if waiting over a month was the norm.

    Also, search 1811 on usajobs. Some districts will list it under 1811 because theres no opm code for us and they believe this is the closest match. Like this:

    FYI, US probation advertises positions in different websites depending on the district. Some are on USA jobs, some on the districts webpage and some at the national us courts page.

    Appears middle Florida is at the national webpage http://www.uscourts.gov/Careers/SearchJobVacancies.aspx

    Then probation is the gig for you. Middle Florida will also be doing a lot of hiring soon.

    Thanks for the response guys my days of running and gunning have dwindled away. Im more interested in a good location and a gig that is super family friendly

    Even if its a supervision gig, it'll still be low speed compared to uninformed or local LE. But living in Savannah might make up for it..

    I'd read through these threads a bit more before applying. Most federal law enforcement positions require a lot of time at a desk. If you want to run and gun you'd be better off looking at uniformed/local law enforcement.

    For the most part you can count on the entire deal being very professional. You are treated like an adult from the begining (of course this depends on your district). I was actually surprised how fletc was operated. I went into it expecting a paramilitary academy. Boy was i wrong. We were treated with nothing but respect from the get go. Very impressive, in my opinion.

    I had my first interview and did really well. I got invited back for the final round of interviews and I guess it could have went either way. I got the impression from the second interview they were really looking for prior probation experience, which I don't have. But hoping for the best. Think they want to hire two or three. I am very impressed how quick the hiring process has been. Usually you apply for a fed job and they call you back or send an email 6 months later. By that point you forgot what the job even entails. This has been a really professional process.

    Hiring push. A lot of people retiring after a few years of little to no hiring. That and the new Crack retro will be releasing a lot of new cases coming out by the end of the year.

    there seems to be a lot of openings in Probation lately. Is this common, or a rare hiring push?
