        And medical is done before the firm offer. Medical is a pre-employment stage that will slow down or stop quite a few applicants.
        lol at the other guy

          The steps that I could see them doing at a one-stop from my knowledge of the steps from the February 2015 process: medical, physical fitness, oral interview and drug test.

          Know your entire medical history and be ready to provide details with dates. Have your VA award letter handy. If you've had medical issues in the past that gave you any limitations or needed to be corrected by surgery or procedure, be ready to have a specialist clear you at your expense.

          Find the physical fitness standards and start practicing that today. Download a "metronome" app on your smart phone and start training for that step test. 96 steps per minute for five minutes on a 16" step is no joke for most people. Touch your legs once and you're out. Miss more than 2 cadences in a row or 5 total and you're out.

          That's the advice I can give.

          • If I am picked up at GS07, I would assume I start at GS 7 step 1. How long until I can progress to step two, three, etc

            Is there any other pay table I am missing? I looked at the pay scale and it would be a significant pay cut. I've never been in the Gov system, so pardon my ignorance.

              Look at the LEO pay scale also known as "GL". You will start at step one unless you are a federal employee making more than 7 step 1 or you negotiate a higher step to start (very unlikely that they will negotiate for this). Look on the OPM website for step progression. The first few steps are one year, the next few are two years and the last few are three years. There is also something called a Quality Step Increase (QSI) that you can get based on performance to move steps faster.

                Considering that, if one is a federal employee on a pay scale other than GL, does DHS typically do in grade step increases to try to match the salary paid at one's previous agency? I.E., if one's current salary fell somewhere on the high end of the GL-9, would they be brought in as a stepped out GL-7?

                  It is common for an agency to do pay retention. I've never seen anyone denied pay retention even moving from agency to agency or from pay plan to pay plan. I am no expert, but I also don't think pay retention is required. I'd go through the steps and see what happens and make sure that is covered to your satisfaction BEFORE you EOD.

                    If you are hired off the public announcement for gs 5 or 7, the highest they can or will give you is a 7/10. I was a 12/4 when hired from the Feb announcement. They don't have to try to give you the highest grade/step either. It's really up to them. They are no longer required to try to pay match. Same thing happens when PAs go to OFO and bust down to a 7/10. Still under CBP but they have to take the pay cut to go over to the other side. You can put in for the accelerated promotion after 90 days I was told but again the don't have to approve it.

                    I received my offer in November, eod was end of Dec and I didn't know my exact salary until a week ago. I kept asking and everyone said they were still working on it. I had a rough estimate based off the online pay scale knowing I'd be a 7/10. No one wanted to tell me what they were making either after giving up the 12/4 pay cause it was just sad lol. Oh well I did it to leave the SWB and get closer to home. Worthy sacrifice in my opinion if you live it a crap city.

                      Thanks Fed2015. I found it and under GL7 step 1, I would be at $44,844 for the first year (tough). Should I expect a certain amount of overtime or not very likely? I applied to Texas.

                      Sorry for the crystal ball questions.

                            No I have not. I can only hope the email got through.

                              • Just got an email about the expedited processing... but it was a "survey" not an invite. Is this what everyone else has been getting?
