  • I have been reading this forum since I started the hiring process in July 2010 - just now got registered to post. I'm one of those that was on the shelf but got the "the opening you applied for has been cancelled" emails. I talked to my SAIC last week- he forwarded me the email saying that I would have to do everything over again because some tests/standards have changed. I would not have to redo poly except it expires after 2 years and mine will expire in April. The email also stated they should be posting openings in 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2013.

    • If you don't mind what test/ standards have changed? Reason for my asking, there was once rumor of a PT test added to the procedure.

      • Copied and pasted from the email
        "The SA/UD hiring process is changing. There will be a cut-off applicants will need to meet; a new test, the Special Agent Entrance Examination (SAEE); a new physical assessment, the Applicant Physical Abilities Test (APAT); and, modified Initial and Panel Interviews. Yes, the applicant will need to start all over. The polygraph and medical results are good for two years. "

        • So the email itself stated that openings would not be occurring until 2nd quarter 2013 or was that the SAIC speculating? That sounds like the most official word anyone's heard yet if it was from some recruitment email.

          • I met with my FO today to update my background. He said two classes will be filled sometime before next summer. That was the best answer I could get. No answer on how many are on the shelf, class dates, how many vets are on the shelf and I didn't even ask what field offices needed new agents. The only confident answer was "48 new hires." The fed gov is running on a 6 month resolution so "maybe" they will have a few more classes after that. IDK, It was funny because two people were astonished I've been in the process since October, 2009. Just glad to still be in it.

            • The wording from the email was they were "expecting" to hire 3 UD and 2 SA classes in 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2013

                • Quick question for those who might know. I am interested in applying for US Secret Service if they have another announcement. Unfortunately the last time I applied (03/2010), I failed the polygraph portion of the hiring process. I can't remember exactly, but I believe it was December of 2010 when I took the poly. I long ago deleted any correspondence from the agency, and the truth is that I do not know if I am even eligible to reapply with a failed poly. Does anyone here know?
