      Can anyone tell me if you are or will be deemed ineligible for the position if you don’t receive an invitation to take the job simulation right after applying?

        Winter_Patriot, yeah I saw that too but figured I would see if there were any questions/answers about education and background that fit me. So I saw that there were selections that fit me (detective with a bachelor’s degree in engineering). If IRS-CI is strict about what they put on the announcement, why even ask about other law enforcement experience or degrees not related to accounting/finance?

        Honestly I don't know. I think it's like the minimum floor is either the accounting credits or financial fraud experience. And then the other things might be seen as an added bonus.

        I worked state cases for a couple years before applying. Did you ever do ID theft cases, internal theft/embezzlement? I didn't think I had much going for my resume but I started thinking about how some of my run of the mill cases had a financial nexus.

        Really nothing comes to mind right now, only violent crime, DV, and general crime. Shame. Winter_Patriot

        That is correct. If you do not receive a link to take the non-proctored exam after applying, you are not qualified. It is much easier to qualify for the level 7 than 9 and via education versus experience. Read the requirements specific to Treasury and ensure your answers and resume support each qualification requirement.

      For all IRS CI 1811 hopefuls that failed the KASE prior to 12/1/2021. RE-APPLY!

      I just received notice to take the first assessment (phase 1) with a link.

        I was looking into that as well. If you search by the whole name and not the acronym some of the offices show up.

        You may be able to enroll those offices in the program. Simply because they are not listed does not mean they don't meet the requirements to enroll in the program. I know some buddies that have done it before with other jobs, and it is some work, both on your part and your new managements part. But in the end it does help those future vets as well coming long after you.

      We are under a new hiring system, which for those of you who have failed the KaSE assessment in the past year, the good news is those scores have been wiped. If you qualify for this announcement based on education or experience (apply for both the 7 and 9), you will receive a link for a non-proctored assessment. You only have 48 hours from the closing of the announcement to take the initial assessment. If you pass, you will be forwarded to the next step in the hiring process. You will be invited for a proctored assessment and writing sample.

      Just for context, the last announcement we had received almost 4000 applications, 749 were deemed qualified on first view, of those 477 applicants were qualified by education or experience, 187 were invited to the accounting assessment and 135 were offered tentative offers. 75 to 80 of the original 4000 will be on-boarded.

      Good luck again and there will be a continuous announcement released for a year in mid-January. Look at IRS.gov, bottom left corner under Careers for more information. Direct link: https://www.jobs.irs.gov/

      Here is the OPM qualifications specific to Department of the Treasury: https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-over...nt-agent-1811/

        Why do you think only 75 to 80 will be on boarded from 135 tentative offers? That seems like a really low conversion rate.

        Interesting, thanks for sharing those numbers. So roughly 3% of applicants received a tentative offer.

        I’m surprised that only 187 of the 477 were invited to take the KASE. And then 135 of those passed the KASE and panel interview?

        Assuming this does not account for the amended announcement? I believe most of us just interviewed last week.

        Winter. And I agree. I feel like it’s meant to say 477 were invited to take the exam and only 187 passed. Then 135 passed the interview. But I could be wrong in that assumption. To me it seemed like If you passed a step you were allowed to continue on.

        These are the numbers we were given on our recruiting call yesterday. Only 75-80 of the 135 are expected to on board due to declinations. Many applicants with us are also applying to other agencies, have unexpected personal issues come up or otherwise decide to turn down the TO when they receive an offer. Others may be excluded from a formal offer based on their background investigation, medical, etc. It is a small percentage and unfortunately some that make it to the academy (CITP and SAIT) will not complete the training successfully. The first cull, from application to initial assessment should reduce the waiting and in-process times for applicants, but the process is still expected to take at least 6 months. Good luck!

      Hi folks. Question for those who applied to the vacancy that closed 12/19 (22-11313378C-CIX-1811-7T9): The announcement states that based on application and questionnaire responses, candidates may be referred to an online assessment that must be completed "within 48 hours following the close of this announcement."

      If I did not receive that referral by now should I assume I was not selected to move forward? Thanks everyone and good luck.

        I got my assessment referral immediately after applying. But weirdly enough I never got an e-mail confirmation when I completed the two online tests.

        cmor5150 Interesting. Must mean I didn't make the cut. Wasn't expecting to anyway, since I was trying to qualify on experience rather than education.

        Just took the KASE this morning. Man that test was no joke, if you don’t have a background in accounting good luck. I’ve taken a ton of LEA exams and that was by far the hardest. If I get a pass I’ll crap myself.

    • #39
      Is it really that great of an opportunity? I took all the tests and got invited, but after waiting the necessary 2 years going thru govt BS my dad died right before I got “The Call.” Working 50 hours a week for relatively modest pay for a few years after living in a crappy hotel with a stranger for 6 months just didn’t appeal enough to me to leave my family at that time. Can anyone that actually has the position say it’s definitely worth it? Everyone so excited about something they’ve never experienced just seems illogical to me. I often wonder if I made the right decision but it just seems like so much nonsense to get a job trying to catch people cheating on their taxes.

        You are definitely not fit for the job with this mindset. Find employment elsewhere.

        Worth it compared to what?

        Big 4 accounting working 80-100 hours a week during busy season, or worse all year?

        2-3 years and you’re making 100-125k. You work the 50 hrs to get that 25% LEAP pay, that’s the trade. Census bureau median household income in the US in 2020 was $67,521.

        No, you’re not going to break into 200k+ in wages but that’s the trade with every government job.

        After proving I could work I case, I can work what I want. Terrorism, trafficking, public corruption.

        Every government job has that nonsense. FBI, ATF, any other three letter agency. They all come with their own problems and sacrifices.

        Everyone ends up hating the six months in government housing, government food, in the middle of nowhere in Georgia. But again, it wasn’t a secret. It’s worth it to me, and I’ve been happier on the worst day of this job than the best day in Big 4.

        It’s not for everyone. That’s fine.

        I work for a state tax agency as a SA so it's basically the same job but at state level. The academy is just a grind you got to get through. I went through the academy during initial COVID breakthrough so while people were FOMOing their summer, I got through the academy and accomplished something with my life.

        The work sucks until you get your groove. Like some others said, once you prove yourself you get a lot more freedom.

      My friend recently took the KASE and said he didn't have time to finish. I thought I've read similar things from people who moved on in the process. But he's pretty torn up about it.

      Anyone know for sure if you can straight up "fail" or if they're grading on a curve?

        From what I hear, it's normal to feel rushed. I was rushed on every section and had to speed up in order to avoid not answering questions. I was making educated guesses my last few questions. I passed and scored Cat C. I received a final offer which I turned down. There's plenty of positions left and I don't see IRS being able to fill them.

        Winter_Patriot why’d you turn it down?

      Anyone within CI know how difficult it is to get Chicago, IL or Guaynabo, PR? It was listed as one of the locations. I know FBI/DEA are desperate to get people to go to PR, was wondering if other agencies are same.

      Any info on how long before they give you opportunity to work at foreign attache? DEA recruiter said it was usually 5-10 years of experience.

        I don’t have insight as to field office specific needs, but We need people everywhere, so likely you’ll get one of the locations you want.

        We only have a few attaché spots. It’s highly competitive and part of management . You’d have to be a field agent then SSA first, at least. 10 years or more. I think there are very few field agent positions in foreign PODs, by which I mean maybe 1 or 2.

      Any updates when KASE results will start going out? Took it on 1 FEB.

        Anyone have updates on the KASE? I retook it today, and my computer froze while the counter kept going down. I think I was towards the end so hopefully passed even if I missed a few questions. I emailed the IRS contact just in case...

        Anyone know how long it takes to get results?

          Can anyone explain their experience working with IRS CI? I’m in process with three agencies right now and can’t decide if this is the right agency for me or not. I just finished my interview with irs so i think i have a pretty good shot at getting a TO. I have 8 years narcotics experience including money laundering cases and not sure if my experience/passion for drug cases will translate to a enjoyable 1811 career or not with IRS.

            Go with the agency that calls you first. There is no guarantee with 1811 jobs. You may very well hold out for a job that will never call you.
