I really don't understand why they tell yall stuff like that because they aren't on the panel. I would take it as meaning "you have everything needed to be hired" and nothing more.

    If they 48 other people are in that same category of praise as you, but get called first then what? The SAIC not SAC saying that, as you mentioned, gives false hope and my advice to the board in regards to HI and what agents tell you about how you are a "shoe-in" should be taken with a grain of salt.

    As of now the only people who matter in determining if you are a "shoe-in" or not, do not conduct HIs and work at HQ.

    But keep the faith. Your time is coming.

    Oh I missed your other question: I won't BS you
    No I do not not know what the hiring panel is looking for. The panel changes with each panel so preferences are different. Everyone who makes it to the panel is pretty much competitive. Sorry I don't have a more favorable or better answer. I also spoke with the boss of our hiring squad and she too does not know what the panel looks for. It's one of those things where only the individual on that particular panel knows what there are going to look for.
    Yeah. I was hoping at the conclusion of the HI they would have just told me that my file was being sent to DC for review and they will determine if you are highly qualified rather than give me hope. Hope is all I got going for me at the moment. I'm just doing what I have to do at work while I check my phone several times making sure the volume is up and has sufficient battery.

    Once again, thanks for the insight and for taking the time to respond to our questions. For now, I will just let the stars align and stay positive through out this process. I really am hoping that there are many spots open for the rumored March and April classes.

    • Did anyone's FO notify them when they sent up the packet to DC? or is it one of those things were you assume its been sent up sometime after the HI/background has been completed.

      I'm thinking that would play a role on how long you wait for a call since if the FO is busy and doesn't get to sending it up right away, that's time you think you are waiting for a call but in reality its not up yet.

      I mention this because I was told mine would be sent up Monday but when I contacted my FO to verify this Tuesday they said it has not been sent and that it will "probably" be sent this week. Thus, while I have completed the steps I'm technically not in the pool yet.

      • I was advised by my FO that my packet was done but a supervisor had to sign off on it. He was out sick for the week so they were looking at the week after to get it sent off. I'm a glass half full guy so it just gives me more time to get in better shape and clear out some of my old cases before I get the call.

          Did they just send you that information or were you checking in for an update?

          In the end it's not a big deal since we don't have any control over the timetable. Just curious and wonder when I should start getting jumpy when my phone starts to vibrate haha.

          Who am I kidding, I jump every time it does off right now

          • That's what they told me at the end of the home interview. Haven't checked in. Figured if I don't here anything in a month I will check in with my background investigator to get an update. I think my commonwealth attorney's office is freaking about this more than I am, got a bunch of pending homicide trials coming up and they are afraid I'm gonna be out soon. They ask me every day if I got the call.

              I know how that is, people at my firm ask me almost everyday when I will hear. I give them the "anywhere between 1 week and 9 months." and then I die a little on the inside and refresh this thread.

                I was not notified. However, after my HI/local background was completed in October, I had my drug screening in November. I had to mail my results to DC.

                    • Waiting

                      Waiting sucks, I remember it all too well. Just work out, do your current job well (who knows, you might get that promotion you want and stay/go where you and your family prefer to go, etc.), read up on the job from books (there's some truth with most critics), hang out with friends and family more, and get ready to move. Basically refresh this thread once a day. And that's it (gasp). Start selling off stuff because when the call comes, it's a mad rush to finish up work and get you and the family ready. Especially if your wife just gave birth... Like someone in this thread (congrats!!)

                      Unless you're in LA, NYC, or DC with UD. Then you're probably staying put lol.

                        • He probably is still running out that "I got the call" high.
