  • Got it. Good luck everyone, hopefully we all see some movement soon.

    • I got the email as well. Any of you guys had issues registering with the TSA site with the temp pw? It's not letting me through....

      • What's the actual deal with FAMS? I keep hearing that they only want to hire people with a military background and that they at sometimes hire those with an LE background or even no background in LE. Does anyone know approximately how long the hiring process takes from start to finish? I put in an app with them and apparently they found me good enough to proceed to the next phase which is the FAB. Like others, I just recently got this email. Not sure what to expect from them, but I'm not going to have my hopes up just in case it ends up like a good portion of other federal hiring processes ...

          Just keep pushing forward and see what happens. Basically at this point, you are moving on because you rated yourself high enough on the questions that were asked in the announcement. Just focus on taking the FAB and pass it. The panel interview is where you really want to do well. It's just not that they are only looking for prior military or LEO's, it's the fact that many of those applicants have that experience and 4-year degrees. They can hire anyone, but there are tons of really qualified candidates with experience and education

            As long as you meet the minimum requirements of the job, as determined by your USAjobs application, you receive an invite to take the assessment battery. Not to sound negative, but it isn't necessarily indicative of a person having the 'resume they want'. The big hurdle is the interview. Pass that and the rest is up to you (poly, etc).

                      • For those in the process from the last announcement, all we have to do is the PT and SAC interview again.
