    Congrats, I remember a flurry of calls/txt from old college roomates/family/coworkers/ect that USSS was working on my background.

    With my extended history in thus forum dating back to Jan 2010, I would say that our Xmas gifts will be in the form of "the call".... Prolly won't be under the Christmas tree but definitely in those return lines during the weeks following the new year (IMO of course)

    • Next Class

      I've heard a couple rumors about a March class; does anyone have any info on that or if there could be one before then?

      • No FedXfit, I have not heard that. Unfortunately, I have not received any information in a while. Last I was told, was to expect to go to a training class around September of 2011, but obviously that never happened.

        • I haven't spoken to anyone from my FO in about 4 months...thinking I might give them a check-in/"hey I'm still alive" call after Thanksgiving. I'll let y'all know if I learn anything of note.

          I'd be kind of surprised if any calls go out before Christmas; the "minibus" spending bill passed by Congress last week fully funded DOJ for the remainder of FY2012 but not DHS. The latest continuing resolution only funds the entire federal government through December 16. Good times.

            Yeah, it definitely seems unlikely given the budget situation, but thought I'd throw the question out there anyway.....one day I'll learn.

            • From what I understand, nobody expects a longterm resolution on December 16th either. We should not be holding our breath.

              • I spoke to someone at my FO today regarding my status. What was weird was that they told me that there was still space in the first 2012 class. They didn't have a date but said it'd probably be in Jan. They said that they fill it with 24 and I could still get on if I finished everything up in time. If I believe everything I read here, it seems like they were blowing smoke in my direction....

                • Where are you in the process now? Unless you're completely through with everything and your packet has already gone to the panel (and it doesn't sound as if that's the case), I don't see how that could be true.....unless the first class isn't chosen for months yet.....which COULD be true......but if there is going to be a January class, which seems unlikely, they'd need to be selecting people for it within the next few weeks, I'd think, since they seem to usually make calls 6-8 weeks ahead of time.

                    like i said, i think it's just smoke in my direction. perhaps just to brush me off? who knows.

                    i just finished my poly. I already have clearance so i would need the Med & HI. I'm not holding my breath really. It's something I really want, and they apparently want me, but who knows in the end.

                    Does anyone know if they object from you staying at your home FO for your first assignment (if its a huge office).

                      It's my understanding it's their policy not to assign you to the FO from which you came, but I don't know how hard and fast that rule is.

                        I really hope this is true. If so, I think I have a good chance of getting in that class.

                        FYI.....I am pretty sure that already holding a clearance does not speed up your process. The USSS does their own investigation. I could be wrong though.

                        Has anybody tried calling the HR number that is listed on the employment website? Do they provide any info?

                          I was told this is possible but not likely.

                          • They are going to do your clearance all over again. One thing the federal gov't is not, is efficient.

                            For FO choices I was told there was a good chance that I could return to the FO I'm processing out of.

                            Sounds like we are all having smoke blown in our nether regions. Yay

                              The agent who conducted my initial interview was assigned to the FO he processed through; he said like anything else it depends on the needs of the agency and they happened to have a bunch of agents from the FO retire/leave when he was hired. So it seems possible if your FO has turnover.
