    Took me 4 months to hear back from my interview and I got an email from them with some documents to fill out and send back

      Mine was 6 weeks. Interview to email to submit all the paperwork. Keep those forms because you will do them all again after medical.

    • Completed my interview earlier. It was definitely more in depth, and I highly recommend remembering the STAR method when answering questions. Without giving anything away don't psych yourself out and approach it like any interview, be professional and look the part. I've interviewed with a few agencies and the ATF agents seemed like they really enjoyed what they did and were passionate about the agency. Fingers crossed I get to move on but best of luck to those who still have to interview!

        This advice will serve those waiting on an upcoming interview very well.

    • I went to an ATF information session in the Midwest this week, and the agents hosting it said qualified applicants would not be invited to apply via a private announcement link. Instead, they said to expect a public announcement on USAJOBS within the next couple months. This came as a surprise to many of us in the room (myself included). The agents did tell us to leave our resumes on the tables where we were sitting.

      Anyone had a similar experience at an ATF info session recently?

        No. My info session was in January over Zoom and they e-mailed us announcement links later on.

    • Not sure if y'all are following ATF news, but the nomination for David Chapman to run ATF has been pulled.

      • My background is complete. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive a preference sheet or, if you’re not accepted, how long for a letter saying you weren’t accepted ?

            There are horror stories of straight shooters failing the polygraph for other agencies, and that it has happened for the ATF also. Failing even after telling the truth.

            ^ Just because someone tells others that they didn’t lie on the polygraph doesn’t make it true. Who is going to openly admit to everyone they know that they lied?

            Very True Checkmate, I agree with you. Someone’s post on this thread that sparked my interest has since been deleted. Just curious about other people’s experiences. I passed one for my current agency. My experience was alright, I just know It can be stressful for many.

            Its not a lie if you believe it to be a truth...

        • Anybody else just get an email about an applicant portal? Guess ATF is trying to do something like FBI to keep us better informed.

          • Completed medical at the beginning of the month, fingerprints completed the same week. Any indication of how long before notification of next step, etc.?

              David65 no where around me is willing to conduct the spirometry, however, I emailed a contact within hiring and I sent over my federal hiring spirometry from a few years back and they are going to inquire about waiving the exam completely

              OCN_1 let me know if you do. Buddy of mine heard back 2 weeks after submitting his security packet.

          • Is there any specific reason why there is no psychological portion to the hiring process? I Have not seen any mention of it through this hiring process.

              I'm pretty sure that's what the polygraph is for. It's usually one or the other from what I've seen with most law enforcement agencies.

              I'm currently in LE and went through both, as well as being in the DEA process and going through both. I know the SS does and few others as well.

              Comes up during either Background/Medical. Believe one of the questionnaires goes through psychiatric history.

          • Has anyone gotten the registration email for their online application tracking? I got an email saying it was all going online but never got the registration email.

          • Well ****, I interviewed last month and thought the email I got, notifying me of the upcoming email to set up a profile on the tracker, meant that I had made it through the next gate. Yall are saying even people prior to the interview have gotten that?

              This may be naïve but if you had failed the e-mail, I don't think they would have included you.

              EDIT* Meant to say failed the interview, not failed the e-mail.

              Checkmate I'd echo what you're saying. Seems like ATF is aiming towards a big hiring push in FY22 and I'd assume they are wanting to get all the hires that are at or past the interview stage through. So they can get this portal fully operational and a new hiring wave through more quickly.

              My opinion: For those that are at a certain point in the process, all our information was inputted into a tracker/portal and were notified. Those that receive the 2nd email passed the interview and will utilize portal to upload further requested documents. Good luck to all of you!

          • Just got the 2nd email. Passed the interview and at the Candidate Letter phase. Awesome!!
