    No doubt, I'm looking forward to seeing what the boys can do against the champs. I was happy to see the Phils win it last year. The whole city of Philly must have went nuts with celebrations, eh?

      For the sake of conversation, if there was indeed a hiring freeze until October would that also affect things such as Background Investigations and other steps for those of us in the pipeline but not in TSU? For example, my BI is entering the eighth month. Should I expect it to not be touched until the next fiscal year?
      There is no hiring freeze that I'm aware of. Hiring almost always tails off during the summer as the majority of money is spent.

      You've only been in the process since Aug. 2008. You shouldn't currently have an expectation of being picked up before the next FY. Most people take 12-18 months to get hired on.

      Most of the processes operate pretty much independently of each other.
      The BI's and others won't get paid unless they're working. I doubt anything is affected beyond a pile-up in TSU.

        As of yesterday according to a woman at TSU, the July 15th class is currently being filled and new classes are still starting once a week.

        If hiring tails off soon, would that mean less frequent new classes at FLETC? Possibly once every two weeks?

        • Does MHC send a letter when you cleared you BI or does it just say "completed" in CASS?

          • Long wait in TSU

            Could someone please give me your opinion on this.

            Have I been in TSU a long time or is just me?

            Thanks

                My opinion.. I consider anything over 90 days a bit long. Not uncommon by any stretch, but a bit long to me.

                I have seen guys wait in TSU for Newark for 6 months or more.

                    One class a week is tailing off. The average is about 1.25.

                    Maybe. I don't really know. I'm guessing the by July 15 we'll be seeing roughly 60 classes so far this year at FLETC. The plan from what I've heard is something between 66 and 86 classes this FY. July 15 is roughly 10 weeks from Oct. 01.

                    If it's 6 classes they're looking to fill, that's roughly a class every 11 days.

                      Thanks again....I sure will start collecting every single thing I can think of that way I wont be rushing.

                      Does anyone know anything about what the need is down in Laredo. I have heard there has been alot of corrupt people being hired down there. So that may be the delay b/c now they are really investigating down to the core anyone that applies for that area.

                            Make sure you get a copy of your credit report early, and if there is anything on there that you need to settle work on that now. Even if you are not done paying off a settlement or collection, at least have some type of proof that you are working on it.

                              • Met my BI today for 4 hours. Let me just say, WOWZERS! Had to explain some prior "college incidents" & try to reiterate how that was college & not now. I'm hoping for the best, but who knows. Still waiting to hear back from medical unit to get my stuff in order. Hope everyone else is getting along with no problems!
