    Late March/early April

    All I'm hearing is late March, so the best bet is to check USA Jobs regularly.

    Well is anyone hearing any updates from their recruiters or reliable sources about when the next entry level HSI announcement may drop? Also, the big question as to whether or not this is a Direct Hire or just a conventional announcement? Seems like the recruiters are a little more quiet leading up to this announcement than 2019 DH event. Could this be foreshadowing that they aren’t conducting a Direct Hire this go around? Thanks guys!

    Don't sweat it. If you can do the test easily on your own, you shouldn't have an issue. The agents that administered my test were very chill, and down to earth. I've heard this from others experiences as well.

    One thing I did was to take the test twice in a row on my own a few times, one right after the other. If I was still passing on the second go, I felt fine about it. But don't cut it close. If you're only doing 25 push-ups, do them more often. You'll want to have a decent buffer in case some of them don't count. Same goes for the sit-ups. The run and sprint don't require form, but it's wise to over-prepare for it.

    As far as PFTs in the future, the agents I spoke with said you don't have to ever run again if you don't want to. No more fit testing after FLETC.

    Does everyone have to take poly or only some applicants. I already have current poly from both military and federal service but HSI wants another poly.

    Hi, FutureFed. I just took the PFT earlier this week. When you receive the TSL, you'll be sent an applicant information booklet. I've looked for a copy of it online (that I'd thought I'd seen previously), but I can't seem to locate it now. Directly from the booklet:
    "Sit-ups measure muscular endurance of the abdominal musculature and trunk strength. This is a timed 1-minute exercise. Applicants must complete a minimum of 32 proper sit-ups, as outlined below, within the allotted time. The score is the number of sit-ups completed in 1 minute. Applicants lie on their back with the tops of their shoulder blades and buttocks touching the floor, arms held across the chest. The knees are bent at a 90-degree angle with the feet placed flat on the floor (Figure 1) (feet may be held in place by a partner with the partner’s hands at the tongue of the applicant’s shoes and/or knees on the applicant’s toes). Applicant raises his or her upper body until the base of the neck is in line with the base of the spine, back is perpendicular to the floor (Figure 2); the applicant then returns to the starting position (i.e., the tops of both shoulder blades must touch the floor) (Figure 1). The feet and buttocks must maintain contact with the floor and the arms held across the chest during the entire range of motion or the applicant will not receive credit for the repetition. Applicants may rest in the “up” (back is perpendicular to the floor) position but may not hold their legs. The exercise is stopped when time expires, the applicant rests in the down position, or the applicant is unable to continue. No restarts are authorized."

    You'll have a 5 min break, then you'll begin the 220yd sprint. 5 min break. Then the push ups:

    "Push-ups measure upper body strength and muscular endurance. This is a timed 1-minute exercise. The test involves performing as many push-ups as possible in 1 minute, using correct form. Applicants must complete a minimum of 22 push-ups within the allotted time. The test is started in the extended, or up, position (hands on the floor with the fingers faced forward and spaced one to two hand widths beyond the shoulders; elbows must be pointed away from the body, arms fully extended, body held straight with the feet no more than 3 inches apart and the toes touching the floor) (Figure 3). A completed push-up is defined as flexing the arms and lowering the body until the upper arms are at least parallel to the floor (straight line from the center axis of the elbow to the center axis of the shoulder) (Figure 4) and returning to the start position (Figure 3). The score is the number of push-ups completed in 1 minute. Applicants may rest in the start position (up position). The waist may raise or sag in the rest position, but the knees must remain rigid. The applicant must return to, and pause in, the correct starting position before starting the next repetition. If the applicant does not lower the body all the way to the point at which the upper arms are at least parallel to the floor or he or she fails to achieve full extension with the arms at the top, he or she will not receive credit for the repetition. If the applicant does not maintain the body straight by sagging the back (Figure 5) or raising the buttocks (Figure 6), he or she will not receive credit for the repetition. The exercise is stopped when time expires, the applicant raises either hand or foot from the ground, the applicant rests in the down position, or the knees bend at any point or touch the floor. No restarts are authorized."

    Five min break and the 1.5 mile run begins. The run will be completed on an outdoor track, per the booklet standards.

    Sorry if the formatting on this is still wild. Did my best pasting from the booklet. I can't get the box to expand larger on this computer. Hope this helps!

    Hi Tito. I completed my PFT on the 15th of this month. I know from here & the other forum that some folks received an emailed survey for hard to fill locations, so it would make sense that additional offers will be coming.

    USSS SAEE was the easiest. ATF and HSI were about the same.

    Can anyone comment on the PT Test? I've spent the last year cleaning up my diet and physically training, but it's still weighing on my mind. I test well, interview well, communicate well, but get in my own head sometimes with PT. It's dumb, but if I'm more mentally prepared, I'll be in better shape.

    I'd like to know:
    -What is the correct form for the sit-ups on the PT test? Is it arms folded across chest, elbows to knees?
    -4in block under chest during push-ups?
    -In the field, after FLETC, is there an annual or semi-annual re-test?

    HSI was by far the most challenging of them all. Took USSS, USMS, and FBI.

    In regards to the FBI Phase II written exam, it's just a standard generic writing prompt. Just write coherently with structure & logic, there's nothing complicated as long as you follow instructions.

    Fair enough. Do we know if HSI is still planning an announcement for this month?

    I've taken and passed the SAEE, UDEE, FBI Phase I, and the DSS application test. The FBI P1 was probably the most challenging due to it's subjectivity. They all weren't particularly difficult, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what to expect going in.

    All the tests that I've taken for federal agencies have seemed rather easy. I don't imagine that the HSI test will be much different. Situational judgement actually sounds more practical and useful as a screening tool.

    Anyone have info or any gouge on the new test? Apparently, the math section is going away, being replaced by situational judgement.
