    I am a current 1899 @ HHS OIG. There is going to be some direct hire and regular postings for 1811 coming up. Jus an FYI. Great place to be.

      I heard that morale is pretty high over there. Allowed to be a little more aggressive lately, at least thats what an 1811 at my local office said.

      Schwook - Morale is high. It is a very family friendly place to work and they give you good resources to do the job. HHS does has its quirks and frustrating moments. There is no perfect place to work but most agents enjoy working here and don't leave until retirement.

    Got referred on Wednesday and called for an interview on Thursday. Never seen the G move that fast.

            HHS doesnt create ongoing hiring lists like the big agencies. These announcements likely have 1 or 2 openings in each city. If a city is on the announcement, there is a spot open.

            Do you think the bigger field offices have more spots to fill?

          What physical fitness requirements does this OIG have, if any at all?

            No PT standards that anyone is held to. We have an annual PT test but it is participation only.

              This is true

            Mind if I ask what location you interviewed for?

              Applied for BR location on most recent posting. Maybe I have misconceptions about direct hire, but why did they post direct hire announcement versus traditional? Is it a better way to vet applicants, or is it that they are hiring for specific locations?

                A direct hire bypasses vet preference and allows an agency to hire someone who is exceptionally qualified for a job, that may have not received that opportunity if a minimally-qualified vet was in the pipeline. Just one example. Vet preference, traditional ranking (NORs, etc) and other OPM regs and factors do not apply.

              From what I’ve heard, SACs and ASACs have more say over which candidates they want on their team. Perhaps they want someone with some accounting experience to complete their team. They could look out for an applicant with that background.

                Correct

              Vets and Prior Fed/State LEOs usually beat out the competition when it comes to hiring. Atleast for HHS, the Direct hire allows for specific skills such forensic accounting and/or sometype of medical degree/license to get pushed to the forefront. Good luck to those that applied. More posting to come

                The direct hire announcements seem to have 2 cut off dates. Is there any particular reason as to why they have that?

                n-McDonald can I be honest and say I don’t know. That was an HQ move I believe and I am not privy to management info.

                AgentSpecial- Do you know if they are looking to fill multiple spots in each city?

            • #14
              What's up with the GS-11 posting that is open to the public? Is it suppose to be for laterals or will they actually consider non-feds? I'm a state investigator with health care fraud experience so it peaked my interest.

                I was referred best qualified for this as well. Never heard anything. This is my 15th + OIG position that I get best referred to and never hear anything back or get a reject letter. What does it take?

                  What does it take? Know someone. I know people dont want to hear that but it is what it is. I cant speak for every region within HHS, but that is what happened with the last couple of recent hirings that took place in my region; it is how I got a chance.
