    You only apply for one. If you apply for GS-7, and you don't qualify for it, you will be offered a job as a GS-5, assuming you qualify for GS-5.

      I don't think that is true. I asked the person that called me about the qualifications and she said the only difference was starting money

        Well, there is a difference in money. There is a certain amount of money that can be used to hire GS-7 types. And once it is spent, there won't be any more GS-7 jobs until there is more money allocated for it. There is more money allocated for GS-5.

          You could be right, but this is info I heard from a good source here on the forum (yoda if I'm remembering correctly). The way I see it a port has a budget to work off and they are allotted a certain nunber of 7 and 5 hires with more money for 5 hires bc of the lower salary, but im speculating.. Maybe Yoda can jump in and shed a little more light on the subject.

            Hey Shark, The examiner said "I believe you passed, but I still have to send it to Washington for review, If we call you again to re-take it , are you willing to do it?" of course, I said Yes, why not, there's nothing to hide... It has been a month already and haven't heard anything about it.

              That's exactly what happened to me, you should be getting a call from the sane agent asking you to come back to retake it again! My 2nd only took an hour cuz I was more confident this time around and mr nerves were definitely calmer lol

              • well today my CASS changed to a different screen now it says

                "You have tentatively met the pre-employment requirements and your file is being reviewed. Once a final determination is made that all requirements have been met, you will be notified of the next steps. "

                anyone seen this step im assuming im getting really close?

                also im trying to figure out what im gonna pick assuming i can research places they might offer me. what are some of the better locations for SWB in AZ looking to get the full job experience not just sit around.

                Thanks

                • Maybe this will help with the GS-05 vs GS-07 difficulties.

                  You guys(and gals) are all eating at Burger World. You are all being served by the number you scored on the entrance test(110's go first...70's go last) The grill master(Uncle Sugar) is only offering two options today...a hamburger(GS-05) and a cheeseburger(GS-07). You all made a decision when you applied as to whether or not to ask for only a hamburger(05), only a cheeseburger(07) or whatever was available(05 or 07's).

                  Now, The BW has plenty of hamburgers(05's) for all. The kicker is that they have limited slices of cheese(07's).

                  Now, the first man goes up and picks up his order(gets a conditional offer/TSL). He gets whatever he orders, because being first up there's all the cheese still there. the second goes and so on. Eventually those ordering cheese and scoring highest on the test pick up all the cheeseburgers and the BW runs out of cheese.

                  When that happens the people who order only a cheeseburger are left standing around... because there is no cheese to give them. Those who wanted only a hamburger or were willing to accept hamburgers get offered hamburgers...and they go sit and eat.

                  The guys waiting for cheese stand about and wait for the cheese truck to deliver more cheese...however long that might take. Meanwhile those ordering hamburgers eat up and move on out.


                  That's pretty much how it goes.

                  Those who only applied for GS-07 might well be waiting. In the meanwhile GS-05 applicants are moving forward.

                  Another thing that might jam up GS-07's is qualifications. It's far easier to vet GS-05 qualifications than it is to vet GS-07 qualifications. So, essentially GS-05's might finish up qualifying quicker and with less hassle than GS-07s, putting the GS-05s out in front.

                          • EASF thank you.. He told me the same to me, the difference is that he said that I didn't passed I hope that they will call me again. I can't imagine that the machine said that I lied about my drug use.... I never used drugs.
