    • I haven't been keeping up with this at all, so if this is old news then just skip. Last week I got an email saying, "I'm still an active candidate etc.." I forwarded that to all the deputies that I know. They all said that's great news to my surprise. They said if you haven't been booted yet, chances are good that I'll get the TO, and pending passing Fit and everything I'll get the FO. Everyone I've spoke too and known they say it normally takes 1 1/2 to 2 years to get on. Point being, keep the faith and hang in there if you're looking at your emails every 10mins waiting for this. God bless everyone!

        Tomkolo,

        Did you submit a wish list previously? I FIT tested a couple weeks ago as well and did not get contacted to fill out a wish list but I submitted one a long time ago sometime during the process. I think I did pretty well on the test so I was just wondering if they're re-sending it to everyone to fill out or maybe just people that didn't have one on file.

        Thanks and good luck!

        I didn't have one on file, I was originally for PR but I also got a TO for all locations, probably why I never did one. I think we are still waiting on calls.

        Received that email a couple weeks ago- of course this is the week where I get nonstop telemarketers calling me from unknown numbers! Best of luck to all.

    • Monitor your phones- just got a call to be tenatively selected for the August class. Contigent on succesfully passing the drug test of course.

        Northeast Region (Region 1 was the only one I selected) as I said it was a "You've been TENTATIVELY selected for the August class, are you okay with ___________ location?" There's still time, and I still need to take my drug test. Nothing's final until it is.

        I took my FIT over three weeks ago now. Still waiting.....

    • Any Deputies out there that could answer this. Correct me if I'm wrong but Excepted Service is Schedule B? I read that it is but just wanted to make sure. Also do you feel this will be granted to the USMS with the current bill introduced? Can the DOJ grant the USMS excepted service at anytime without congress? Never read anything about DEA getting it or did it already have it before and didn't utilize it till now?

        DEA is doing a Schedule B hire now. Excepted Service is not Schedule B. Schedule B is when the hiring authority is given to the agency directly allowing them to bypass the traditional vetting and selection process used by USAJOBS and OPM. Excepted Service is agencies like FAMS USSS. Essentially they can hire and fire you for any reason they see fit (within reason). Schedule B is when you email the recruiter and initiate an employment application directly with them. USMS getting Schedule B means that they will now have the authority to hire directly, and without using USAJOBS. They will be also able to use their own hiring process without regards to any process already on the books. Hope that helps.

        Yes you did explain it. I was told the USMS is going towards Schedule B and it mentioned it in the current bill introduced. Not sure when/if it will pass but it would be great for the agency. I heard HR is gearing for it as we speak, any idea if this may pass or not? Thanks for the response.

        It hasn't passed. It was introduced and referred to Committee. This is the bill... S.1124 - Patrick T. Carothers U.S. Marshals Service Hiring Improvement Act of 2017. Excepted Service first 3 years then convert to Career.

    • Does anyone know the start date of the August class?

        I don't think the official date is out there yet, but rumor has had it that it will be towards the end of August.

          I was just given 48 hours to take a drug test. The conversations are so brief. It's like a reality tv show

      • I got my offer on July 6 for the August class but I declined. I was offered Alpine Texas and I was really hoping to get something in the southern district of Texas. Mcallen Tx, Laredo, Corpus Christi or Brownsville TX.

          Hey Wicho,

          Thanks for the info- was it a FO sent via email? Or phone call?

      • It was a phone call. I ended up calling them back the next day with my decision. I just hope they don't take me off the list.

        • Those of you who got called for a drug test, is this your first one? I was drug tested before the June class and haven't been contacted since the FIT, was wondering if they're running another drug test for the August class or maybe I just haven't heard anything yet because I took mine already.

            I'm on the same timeline as jimmycoughdrops- and I got called today for my first drug test, completed everything else to include the FIT and TO.

            Ok cool, got my TO a while back and took the drug test months ago.. FIT tested a few weeks ago. Hopefully they're just getting your drug tests done and will send out FOs soon.

            This is my first drug test but still have not taken fitness test.

        • Quick question for those close to gettin calls. During course of backgrounds have all of you met personally with the investigator for the interview once is was close to being completed? Just asking because I have yet to be contacted by one, so just was curious as to how that goes. Thanks.

            It is not the same for everyone, it just depends on who your primary investigator is for the case. My BI started about MAY 2016 and my investigator interviewed me right away. OPM did not complete it until MAY of this year. Sometimes they will do your interview early...sometimes middle....sometimes end. You will never know the answer until its done.
