      Hi all,

      been looking for this thread, glad I found it. I also got referred, then got the call to write the essay, duty stations and references. Since then I’ve heard nothing. I did reach out to someone within USFWS, they did say the virtual interviews have been pushed back to a “tentative week of Nov 15th”. So it does seem like things got pushed, has anyone heard anything yet??

        Thanks for the update. I think most of us are waiting to hear something after submitting our essay, references, location preferences.

        Received the call today and scheduled my interview. Sounds like they will all be scheduled during next week.

        They told me during the interview that it would be December 6 to 11. I was originally told that it was Dec 6-9 and you might not need to be there the whole time. So 6-11 is a little longer. Has anyone heard anything?

        Nope, haven’t heard anything yet…hurry up and wait, at this point… Just kinda hoping they let us know this week. If need be, would like to let my current employer know before thanksgiving that I need a week off haha and not wait until the last second.

        Good luck to everyone that interviewed, supposed to start finding out next week who selected to move forward. Any one have inside if the peb is done on a track or a trail?

          My guess would be a track because I think the PEB is a pretty universal test for federal agencies.

          I think it’ll be a track. Easier to grade and track candidates. When I went through the NPS Seasonal Academy we did the PEB down and back for the 1.5 mile. I guess we’ll see.

        Make sure y’all check your emails, I got the invite email to Falls Church today. Hope to see all y’all there!

          Still waiting, I would assume all the emails went out today in one bunch, but kinda hoping that’s not the case haha. I’m sure by Wednesday if people don’t hear then we’re out. Anyone else get an email?

            I was told after the interview, the emails would go out through the week due to the amount of interview they had conducted last week. That it wouldn’t be in a mass email like that.

        • #83
          Anyone else hear anything/get an invite? I did hear that they have until Monday to call references.

            Got the invite on Monday for the In-Person Interview, PEB, Psychological Evaluation, and Security Clearance review events next week in Virginia.

            All seems a little rushed and, honestly, it feels like the timeline has out paced FWS' capabilities. A travel coordinator is supposed to call and arrange travel for next week, but I still haven't received that call and it seems like FWS is unable to respond to inquirers. Currently, the lack of communication has me a little skeptical as to whether next weeks interview and hiring event will actually take place... at least for me. Hopefully, others have better luck.

            If someone has a point of contact for this part of the process, I would appreciate a PM. I have a couple concerns that I am trying to get addressed before next week.

              So I contacted the last person from FWS who contact me via email for the invite for the virtual interview. He seemed to indicate exactly what you are saying. He asked me for all my contact info and said he’ll try his best to get back to me, never did… it’s just seems like this whole process is being rushed. He said they are trying to get as many people as possibly through, and contact references. At this point, Id just like some sort of clarification from FWS, but that seems hard to get.

            1. Get used to being rushed... collapsing into place at the last minute is how fws rolls.
            2. Your timeframe needs and wants ranks 50 out of 50 on their list of concerns.
            3. Of course they don't respond to job inquirers. There is only so much productive time in a day and responding to every email filled with petty questions is a huge time suck.
            4. Lack of communication will be par for course for the next 25 years of your life so get used to it. Always remember- Flexibility is too rigid a word with this outfit.

              I got the email invite on Monday and got a call last night from the travel coordinator to get everything arranged. They’ve contacted several of my references as well.

              If you got the invite, just be patient. The travel coordinator called me at almost 6pm last night to get all of my info.

                Well, tonight is Friday night. Last weekday before the 6th. So I’m guessing if we haven’t heard anything by now we are not being considered. Next week was the only free week I had from work for months so I’m probably screwed. It’s a shame because I felt I did very well on the interview.

                  Sorry man! That's a bummer. There's always BLM, Forest Service, and NPS if you want to continue looking at land management protection jobs. NPS is probably the easiest to get in to as an entry level position, but career advancement sucks and you have to go through purgatory as a seasonal Ranger before getting permanent.

                  kvasir Yeah, I never really should have gotten my hopes up. I’ve applied to many USFS GL-5/7 positions and have never heard anything back. Haven’t seen BLM open up but I’m sure it’s ultra competitive like USFS. I applied to the new NPS GL-5 perm jobs that opened up but didn’t hear anything back. Definitely can’t do the seasonal thing, I can’t give up my current career for that amount of risk. Just passed the poly with CBP for BPA so that might pan out. Also got a FPS TJO but that’s not 6c and the locations might suck.

                  Sorry brother, we’re in the same spot. I thought I did great on the interview, plus military and fish and wildlife degree and still, I didn’t get an invite to Falls Church. Guess we can always try next time. I have also applied to USFW never heard anything back other than “referred”. That said, good luck to everyone out there going forward in the process!
