      Seems you always have to email to inquire for updates

      We have a similar timeline. I did my info in dec 2020. Got cleared to hire a few days ago. What happens now? Back to the waiting game until an office contacts?

      Any of you had any movement or heard anything? I also was cleared to move to hiring pool last month.

      IwS, nothing much. I reached out they told me I could send them my preferred locations. The told me when I would expire and basically to wait for an email or call.

      DoubleHaul When I went to my interview they had me fill out a sheet listing location preference by region, when I received the eligible for upcoming classes email the second time I was given a list of states and to rank them in order of preference. I listed my top 15 choices. Got an office in the state I listed at number 5

      It looks like 18 months after receiving TOL you got an offer.

      That's insane. I interviewed in July 2022 and have a TOL. Granted it was in PHX.

      I would consider contacting HRD or maybe someone in recruiting at the district level.

      I interviewed in SD end of January and didn’t receive my TOL until Sept 6th. I had to send several emails asking about my progress.

      I interviewed at the beginning of February in SD and got my TOL in July. I’ve since finished my medical and submitted fingerprints and eQIP 2 weeks ago.

      I have no idea how they determine who goes first in this process…

  • Hello everyone, I had a question regarding the medical if anyone is familiar with this part of the process. When blood and urine is taken, do they test for pregnancy? I ask because I recently had a miscarriage but it still shows up as pregnant when testing. Do they mention this when taking blood and urine or is it just for the sole purpose of finding drugs used, diabetes ect…? Thank you!

    • For all the OKC people I finally got my “cleared for hire” email back on the 25th so hopefully an offer sometime this FY is more of a possibility.

      • I have the medical scheduled a week from now and I'm looking at the documents, there is a word doc that has the medical exam packet and a pdf that has the medical exam packet but both are different. The word document has revised date 2018 and the pdf has revised date 2021. I emailed them and haven't received a response yet. Anyone have any idea which one is the correct one? I'm working on filling them both out just to be safe.

          I’ve cleared background, completed medical, and waiting for medical clearance.

      • Anyone on here finish the process with a pervious TS/SCI and know if that speeds up the background portion of the HR process?

          They reciprocated mine and my background seemed to clear quicker than others, however medical bottlenecks everyone and they don’t seem to process it any quicker based on how quickly the other steps are accomplished.

          It does, my roommate has a current TS and they just adjudicated his current one and had him sign a reciprocity document. Went straight to the medical a week later.

      • Who here has a contact email for a FOH employee who is responsible for USMS applicants? DM me, please.

        • Just got my TOL today. In the email, there were a couple of fitness guides attached including one with the new PT test so I am guessing it is in effect? And how long after the TOL is it taking people to get their ​medical scheduled?

            As in location? It says I’ll be considered for districts nationwide.

        • I don’t believe there’s a new fitness test, I believe they are workouts to be ready for, haven’t heard of any new test being implemented, especially when they’re just getting back on track due to covid

            Ah okay, that makes sense.

        • Background cleared on 9/20, and medical was cleared as of yesterday (11/21) which was conducted mid July… Would anyone know if the next email is the hiring pool entrance, or tentative seat offer?

            No going to be any help sorry, but in the same boat. I got a call on Nov 3 saying my medical cleared 11/2 and I’m moved to the clear to hire pool. Background was already cleared. Nothing else since then.

        • For those that have had a FIT, is there any protocols being followed as far as order of the test or rest periods between the exercises?

          • I have my background interview with DOD investigator in the next few days. Can anyone provide context to what I can expect?

            Apologies for the most likely obvious answer, but just want to be prepared. Does it also mean you’re nearing the end of the background investigation itself?

            Thanks!

              The investigator is going to go over everything on your E-qip, pretty much verifying everything you put down is accurate.

          • Cleared and officially in active hiring pool as of 11/23/22. Ranking list regarding preferred offices was sent out a few days ago.. Anyone here start to receive phone calls/interviews, and/or have any movement?

              Profpride21 I follow these forums pretty closely and do not think anyone from our timelines (info session 2021) have received a final offer yet. Curious as to when that will start happening as well.
