    I damn sure wouldn’t give those duties to anyone in my Dept…….


    As for stuff coming from USMS HR…..laughable at best at times. I’ve discussed support positions (GS14/15 level stuff) with them and they were clueless on specifics….. to the point I gave up.
    Getting assignments right off the bat totally depends on the size of the office. In a small office, yes, you will get collateral duties right off the bat. Firearms Instructor? or Training officer? most likely no. But Motor Vehicle Officer or Recruiter? Yes, possible right away in a small office.

      Then my bad.

      As stated, when I was working around the USMS on a daily basis, the dude doing things was doing Internships/Co-Op (or whatever they call it now)/hiring/FIT Tests/off-duty hiring, and a few other things for the District. When I talked to him a few weeks ago, he was still doing all that...... which puts him well over the 15 year mark......

        Dang. I learn something new every day! What are their responsibilities? One would think the name "USMS" kind of sells itself. Do they go around to job fairs in their respective areas and what not?

          They typically give recruiter jobs to the new guys so that they can go talk more people into joining before they have become disgruntled and hate the agency.

          Our recruiter usually does middle and high school presentations, which makes zero sense considering youre not going to hire at age 18 and without life experience/degree/military. But who am i to introduce commons sense...?

            • Just going to out this out there based on a first hand conversation.

              Yestersday I was talking to one of the senior deputies at the courthouse. We were small talking and he said this recent announcement that had 5k applicants was only for one academy class.

              BOOM

              Again just what he told me. Good luck guys!

                • As one of the applicants of the PR announcement who completed the online test back in February, the status of my "External Assessment" inside of the Application Manager has updated from "No Results Received" to "Complete" as of this morning.

                                They were referring to fiscal year 2017. There will only be 3 to 4 classes that year. But the USMS will hire more down the road. With the USMS being short there will be more classes or the same in FY 2018. Keep in mind that the applicants from the 2012 announcement are recently being call for a class. I'll be applying under the Pathways announcment. Good luck to you all!
