      That statement has nothing to do with being preferred or non preferred. That statement applies to all direct hire announcements. Preferred means your resume was sent beforehand to a selecting official, usually a SAC, and they picked you as prescreened candidate to apply to an exclusive hiring announcement for preferred candidates only. Your selection is only for that SAC location or an office within the SAC. If you pass the test you'll be given a tentative offer from that location. You still have to pass all the steps just like anyone else (non preferred). They can waive the interview under the Direct Hire and you may be subjected to a polygraph. HSI hasn't fully implemented the program so it's still case-by-case. Non preferred who pass the initial application screening and written test are placed on a cert list which is distributed to the SAC indicated on your application. The list can also go to other offices looking to fill additional vacancies. Selections may or may not be made from that list.

        Ahh. Ok. I was thinking preferred in reference to veterans preference. That makes more sense.

    • I was called by an office last night. They asked if I was interested in working there and an informal q&a about my experience. Definitely has me excited

        Yeah I’m non-preferred. It wasn’t an offer, just to see if I was interested in going there (I absolutely was)

      • KYpoPo the call you described is exactly how I was hired minus any questions about my background. Literally asked if I would be willing to work at that location, I said yes, then received a formal offer a few weeks later. The rest is history. Not telling you it's a guarantee, just sharing my experience.

          This is so interesting. A friend of mine applied a vacancy or two before me, and started getting calls this past week/weekend (call from a SAC on a Saturday, interestingly enough) from offices that he received a survey about just a week or two ago. This sounds so informal compared to what I've heard about other agencies.

          Hoping I get a call soon. Were any other parts of your hiring timeline out of order, or missing completely? Curious about all of the possibilities since it sounds like the timeline on their site isn't happening 100%.

      • Received an email today saying I will be contacted to schedule my virtual interview for next week.

          If you got a referral notice I wouldn't worry about it. I got a 96 and no one is blowing up my phone..

      • Just received an email today from El Paso, TX asking if I was still interested in moving forward. My timeline as follows so far

        Dec. 2019-application
        Jan. or Feb. 2020- Special Agent Test Battery
        Mar. 2020- Notified of passing score
        Jun. 2020- Notified I was referred to hiring manager.
        Aug. 2020- contacted by field office

        Does anyone know how long this process usually takes or if the virus/election will delay this process?

              Non-Preferred.

          • Does anyone know if San Diego will be picking up any non-preferred candidates?

            • Today I completed a interview via webcam with members of an East Coast field office and was informed the interview was for that field office and only that field office. During the application process, this particular office was the only one I selected and interested in working out of.

              I'm not sure if it was a direct hire interview but I'm hopeful as I want to stay in the area.

              Current federal LEO with a 4 year degree.

              Best of luck to those in the process.
