    Anybody have insight into what working for USDA OIG is like?

  • #2
    Usually small offices, which can be good or bad. Good if everyone gets along, bad if they don't.

    Mostly work food stamp fraud, the billion dollar criminal fleecing of America.

    Most of those cases involve food stores in the 'hood- those places which sell strawberry blunt wrap but no strawberries. I always tell people- just because it's fraud doesn't mean it's not dangerous work.

    Occasionally work other cases, like the deranged man who worked in the meat department at a grocery store and poured concentrated nicotine (a pesticide from the '50s he found in a barn) into 100 pounds of hamburger, which made dozens of people seriously ill. Since that meat was USDA certified, USDA OIG had jurisdiction.

      Someone got referred I see ha. What locations did you select?

      They also are the leads on federal dog fighting. I've worked with one who is a big time dog fighting case guy. It's also pretty high speed, because it's dangerous, lots of UC work, shoulder to shoulder with the criminal element. He works in conjunction with DEA, FBI and others all the time. When the DEA can't tie the cocaine or meth to the suspect, but they know he partakes in dog fighting, that's their angle. Then during their SW for dog fighting, they find the meth. But the dog fighting charges alone are enough to put them away for a long time.

      But conversely, you may be working crop insurance fraud cases.

      Just a heads up, the management involved with this announcement has made it clear there will be no memoing back to your old grade since this is a 7/9 announcement. So if you're currently a 12 or 13, you're going to have to do your time and wait for your yearly promotion.

        I selected all locations and was referred for all. Thank you both for the insight. Hopefully will receive a call for an interview.

        Current 1811-13 step 4. If I’m understanding your post, I would be in a pay freeze until I progressed through their timeframe?

        If you're referring to a 00 pay step im pretty sure that doesnt exist anymore for changing agencies. If that's the case, then you're busting to a 9/10. I've only seen a 00 in recent times for someone busting down in their current agency due to relocation, NTEs ending, positions being terminated, etc. But I am far from an HR pro so I'm not one someone should read this and take it as fact

        Supposedly the hiring officials havent received the cert lists from HQ yet for whatever reason. I don't have an inside track or source of info, that's just what I was told by someone so it's just rumor mill

          The last USDA posting that I applied for, I received an email pertaining to a interview instead of a call. That was back in 2015, so things may of changed by now.

              Probably will be for a while. A friend of mine interviewed for them last year, and they called them with a short turnaround from call to fly out for interview, the last month the hiring list cert was good.

              Another amigo applied for an April announcement with USDA, April of this year, and they just called him for an interview this month.

                How did he do on it?!

              A couple other announcements have come out since the one in September; however, the announcements are very specific in terms of who can apply. Not sure what this means or if/how it will affect certs from the September announcement.

                No doubt. One posted today for one of the same locations in the 7/9 announcement is clearly tailored for a specific person.

                This position is only opened to persons that are CTAP/ICTAP/RPL eligible in Little Rock, Arkansas area.

                That is for a 13 spot in the Raleigh office. I don't think I've ever seen a CTAP/ICTAP posting for a specific single location only be eligible to people in a whole different part of the country.

                Anyways, some calls went out for interviews for the Little Rock office, and maybe other offices under that same SAC.

                  I was selected and invited to the interviews that were last week but declined due to it not being within my financial budget. Last minute airfare/lodging/car rentals near holidays can get pretty expensive.

                    Which offices did you receive the invite for? I heard the SAC covering Chicago, little rock, etc had sent invites out, but the other regions haven't moved forward any. Just trying to paint a mental picture for myself and friends who are in this announcement.

                    Diamond Bar, CA/Sacramento, CA/Seattle, WA were the ones I was extended the invite for.

                    I'm guessing you're asking because you didn't go to the interviews either?

                  I haven’t heard anything as of yet! Are you an 1811?
