  • "Do Not Hire Lists"

    Do they exist in the federal government? Lets say you apply for a job, you don't get accepted, are you put on the do not ever hire or consider list for months or years? Lets say you apply again in the future is your resume automatically filed away? Has anyone ever talked to HR or management to see if they exist?

    I'm sure there are things people can do to permanently become disqualified for law enforcement jobs I.E. lying and getting caught or committing certain crimes.

    If one simply is not found qualified at the time of application, one can sometimes apply in six months or during the next opening. Failing an assessment or interview might require a one year wait period.

      No... Not for just a run of mill applicant. Now if you have something in E-qip such as a domestic violence incident, "hard" drug use or another report that would be disqualifying is another issue. I have never sat on or heard of a prior job interview or application being held against an applicant. I have sat on a panel with an applicant who was not selected, two years later I sat on an interview panel for the same applicant and he was selected. Nothing from his previous interview or application was considered.

        I never saw a "Do Not Hire List", but on those rare occasions where an applicant appeared to be less than truthful during an interview or something in their application didn't meet the smell test, I would flag their package before forwarding it up the chain. Maybe (hopefully) someone maintained a list at that level.

        Otherwise, applying more than once was not a problem. For agency reasons well beyond their control, strong applicants often didn't get picked up. Sometimes it's just about timing.

          They do not, would absolutely violate so many OPM rules, laws, and fair hiring practices that I would HOPE such a list existed and I found myself on it, so that I could retire from the bomb-*** lawsuit I would win.

          You know I like private messaging you when we do, especially about our home state and things like that, but I feel like you're getting paranoid; the FOIA requests about job applications, do not hire lists, so on so forth. PM me if you need anything.

            I think all these things he’s bringing up show WHY he’s not getting hired...
            Now go home and get your shine box!

              While I have been aware of a "No Hire List" there are some applicants whose personal reputation and conduct is so repugnant and so well know to members of an agency, they will never pass an oral board for that department.

              One afternoon I was dealing with a sensitive situation in the field, with a group of people who happened to sit on the various oral panels for my agency. Out of the blue we were approached by an individual who had applied with us and been failed many times because he was known to be immature, abrasive and who provoked matters rather than resolved them. He butted into the matter and one of the first things out of his mouth was a criticism about the activity we were engaged in that presumed facts not in evidence, was insulting and provocative. He later asked when we were going to hire him. At that point I wanted to tell him in no uncertain terms he would never work for us and why, but I bit my tongue.

              Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere
