    • 5/25 meet with Special Agent for BI. Any movement is good movement!!

      Talked to a Deputy Recruiter a couple days ago. Was told a class of vaccinated applicants was going to be held in April but got cancelled. Vaxx'd or not we will not be able to leave the compounds. This year Marshals were looking at 5 classes but Covid stopped that from happening. After October be ready for things to start really kicking off with 5-7 classes for the 2022 fiscal year. He couldn't get it across more clearly that they needed to hire personnel ASAP and to stay mobile and ready.

        Wow! Can’t even leave the training center even if you have the vaccine?! That’s pretty nuts.

        I find that hard to believe. I have friends at FLETC right now (for another agency), who are living their best lives on their days off. Fully Vaccinated allowed to leave base. That policy is a FLETC policy, not an agency policy.

    • Vaccinated people can leave. There are a number of students cleared to live off campus again too.

      • I am sure my question is posted somewhere, but I'm having trouble finding the info.

        After you are hired and waiting on an academy date, what are your duties at the field office?

        Regarding the yearlong waiting period for the GL7 and or GL9 pay grades, does your time start the day you are hired? Or is it started after you graduate from the academy?

          99.9% sure the clock starts ticking from your EOD date.

          Clock starts on your EOD date. As of right now, though, you won't be on-boarded and sent to an office before having an academy date. When they did that last year, it was a one-time thing due to some weird DOJ requirement. Your first day on the job should be day 1 at the academy. As always, things can change in the future, but they're back to normal again in starting folks that way.

      • If you are already a fed employee they will have to on board your prior to the academy so there is no break in service cause there is paperwork prior to going to the academy that has to be done TSP healthcare etc. so most likely you will
        on board a couple days or a week prior to the academy they can not just send straight to the academy form your location to much stuff to
        get done prior.

          Prior feds in my class started 1 day before everyone else because they have to pay you for your travel day. That was it...

      • HR Departmet stated in the past few emails that after a year you may have to re-do the medical phase. Has anyone been contacted and asked to take the medical exam?

          If you already cleared medical, after a year you will have to sign a form that says nothing has changed and send it back. That’s it. Not another exam.

          Good info, thanks. Would hate to do that QTC medical all over again.

      • So I learned that they do not poly at the info session, which made me curious what security clearance level they require? Is it not a TS? Also, I went to my Info session at the beginning of May, how long does it “typically” take to get the invite to apply.

          It’s a tier 5. I understand you can go through a T5 and not have a TS/SCI. I have a TS/SCI from the military. My coworkers at another fed agency went through T5 (public trust) but don’t have a TS/SCI.

          This is from an OIG report in 2005, so it might have changed but looks like you hire on as High Risk Public Trust and then get a secret clearance after finishing training. It looks like some may get TS eventually but I assume that is ones who promote to 1811.


          "For applicants who are tentatively selected for employment, the USMS initiates a full background investigation for which OPM investigates all issues necessary for both the high-risk public trust and national security Secret levels. Through this process, the USMS believes it saves resources and eliminates the need to hire deputy marshals on waivers. After the background investigations are completed, applicants who have been approved are hired at the high-risk public trust level and sent to USMS basic training. After basic training is completed, the USMS routinely requests Secret clearances for the new deputy marshals."

          Not correct, things have changed in our agency since 2005. You will get a Tier 5 and be adjudicated for a TS/SCI.

          All of you are correct. We (USMS) moved towards a top secret clearance. The whole agency is shifting towards that now. So when you conduct your background investigation it will be for a top secret clearance.

      • I’m a 2020 applicant and just turned all my paperwork in after me TOL last week to get my medical and BI rolling. My question is for y’all since more of y’all have completed medical portion.

        i completed medical for CBPO/BPA last year and had an issue with my Color Vision and the dang ishahara (something like that) Number Cards they use and I’m assuming USMS will use the same color vision test. I went to a specialist and paid to take the more in depth colorvision Farnsworth Munsell testing and submitted it as it was accepted as an alternate testing. Does anyone know if USMS will allow this type of testing? I’ve never had an issue with color vision and even have over 65 static line jumps on Active Duty as a current Jumpmaster (green and red lights on the AC even amber if on a C17 lol). I’m just hoping I’m not SOL because i hate those cards lol.

          I am red-green colorblind and failed the plate test for my current fed agency.

          I’ve been told by DUSMs and applicants here that USMS will accept a passing Farnsworth D-15. At my medical, I just submitted my D-15 score and doctor’s note. That was good enough for US Probation. I understand that the FBI accepts the Farnsworth as well. The USMS medical contractor also had me do a vivid color test (red, yellow, green). I have not heard back yet if I cleared medical.

      • Does anyone know how the sit and reach portion of the FIT works? Out of every portion of the FIT I think I’m most concerned about that because my hamstrings are far from flexible.

          Do some warmup and stretches ahead of time. I did this test for the USPP and it was harder/weirder than expected, but I still fine. I stretched a couple times a day in the two months leading up to the test, hand to toe/heel.

      • Actually its more so your back thats tight.

        • Hi just joined this forum. I’m interested in becoming a Deputy Marshal and I live in District 9. I was chatting with a recruiter and they told me they don’t know when the next Info session is going to be for but to send them my information to be put on the waitlist. My question is, did I just miss an info session? If not, does anyone have some insight on how frequently they occur. I’m currently in the hiring process for Capitol Police but I’ve heard good things about the Marshal’ office.

          Thank you!

            Keep your options open and reach out to recruiters in other states, you most likely will have to travel for your info session.

            You need to be willing to reach out to other districts/regions and possibly travel. If your home district isn't doing info sessions or just recently had one, you might be waiting a year for the next one. Keep in mind though that you may end up working in the region where you attend the info session.

          • Does anyone know what the process is like to move from the prisoner transports/court security side to the fugitive side after 2 years? Is it a competitive process and if so, what makes someone competitive?

              Depends on the district. Most will have you doing courtroom and transport work for a few years. At my nearest district, they do that for 2-3 years exclusively and then will go on a rotation (warrants followed by court/transport).

          • Good morning, does anybody know if the Miami district is hurting for bodies.

              I'm guessing all urban, coastal districts are hurting due to the cost of living there. You could call the recruiting officer for that district to find out. If you receive an offer, it may not be in Miami. Your best bet of working in that district is to attend an info district there, but there's no guarantee you'll actually end up in that distract (as opposed to that region).

          • When they send you a background approval date, does that mean your clearance is all done? Did my eqip about 5 months and the BI called multiple people since then.

              I would assume so. Do the backgrounds expire, or just the medicals?
