  • Abdul2 mine says hiring complete but I don’t know how long it has said that, I just did my fit test today but I have not received a final offer or been contacted by any districts for hiring yet. I attended my info session in august 2019 but didn’t get a tentative offer until 3/18/21, so I am technically a wave 4 fy2021 applicant.

      When you apply on USAJobs is when ur clock starts per HR, not your info session.

      Any update on if you got your final offer?

  • Anyone have experience with getting a follow up with medical regarding vision? Was it a hassle? FYI: If you’re awaiting medical follow up with them!! I had to reach out after waiting about year and got response.

      yes. i was required to go back for a second vision test as during my initial medical they didn't do a "uncorrected" vision test

  • Word within the agency from several sources is a lot of potential applicants have been failing or scoring very poorly on their pre-employment FIT tests. I hope that is not accurate and that people are properly preparing and maintaining their preparation for when their number finally gets called. Would be a real waste for them as well as the agency to go through that long of a process and when you're that close to the end, you come up short on something that is entirely within your control. Also, please know that even if you pass your pre-employment FIT test, that doesn't mean you're good and can stop working out. You should know by now from these forums that you will be re-tested within short order of arriving at FLETC and that the fun has only just begun.

      After three years, most people probably don’t think they are going to get an offer. I agree that everyone should stay in shape and always be getting better. But life happens! I’m not the one doing the hiring but it just seems like that process could be stream-lined quite a bit.

      Using the length of the hiring process is a bad excuse, applicants in any law enforcement position need to stay in shape, it’s the nature of the business. You are expected to be in good physical shape, it’s a lifestyle, not a “I'm only going be in shape to get through the door”. Hiring people who are incapable of passing the PT tests or maintaining an appropriate level of fitness is a liability and disservice to themselves and their coworkers.

      Agreed. Unfortunately they are skipping people who have passed FIT tests and hiring those who don’t share your
      mindset. They need to fix the hiring process and that will rectify the issue.

  • They wouldn’t be hired if they didn’t pass the fit test. As far as getting there and making it through the supposed thrashings is a different beast all together. Most don’t make it because of mental weakness not physical weakness. Just my 2 cents. If you want to be there and this is truly your dream gig, it would be satisfying to be getting “smoked”. You know you have the opportunity to wear that STAR!

    • No I didn’t reapply, I just had radio silence for over a year after the info session. I got a random email for an interview which seems out of order for most, but that’s how it went for me.

      Also one of the deputy marshals at my fit test said it took him 6 years to go through the hiring process so apparently it has always been slow, he said it took so long they did another background investigation on him lol.

        Dude 6 YRS that's insane....When I talked to an FBI agent about what these hiring processes are so long for 1811 she told me that part of the process is seeing who really sticks to it. That the daunting hiring cycle is part of weeding out applicants.

        Ehhhhh. Not so sure about that. That sounds like propaganda. Most of it is just government being government. Funding, lack of staff to handle influx of applicants, getting lost in the shuffle, lack of effort or prioritization of recruitment, etc.

        At the end of the day we are just a number and widget in the giant government machine. No 3-letter agency is going to purposely delay an applicant for 6 years just to test their grit. They need us as much as we want to work for them. It’s just the GOV.

    • Just received vax email. 2020 Wave 1 ESH …

      • Does getting the vax email mean that the got test will be scheduled next?

          I also got the vaccination request around October. I have not taken a fit and have had radio silence since then.

          Same here.

      • It could? Got an email a few weeks ago asking vax status. Then 2 days later got contacted by HR saying that I'd be getting contacted about a FIT soon. 30 minutes after that local office called me.

        • When/if offered (especially the April attendees), is it still a list of locations or just one location offered and take it or leave it thing?

            As of recent it has been a one location offer of being “Selected” and you taking or leaving it.

            I wonder what percentage accept the position vs turn it down. More of a curiosity question ha.

        • Has anyone from Wave 2 2019 (the forgotten wave), been contacted for the April academy?

                Do you not know anybody in a district? You just need them to pick your name/resume.

                Checkmate … talked to the Chief in my District. Said there is really nothing he can do. But that applicants in the district have failed.

                ^ I am pretty sure it is the chief deputy from each district or office that has hiring authority. It is literally up to the offices themselves who they hire.

            • Got my offer call yesterday. Set to attend April academy. Still have to take fit test. I am elated.

                I got called out of the blue by the district that selected me. HR never called just emailed after the selection was processed.
