    I have a question for anyone who might know: how much of an impact, if any, does demographics have on initial duty location?

      In theory none....other than in situations like the female only announcement last year

    Threw my name in the hat. What is grade progression like for HSI? One year in between grades for grades 7-9-11 and two years for 12-13?

      I believe it is one year in between all grades until you hit GS-13. GS-14 are promotional positions and you have to apply for those.

      Annually from Grade 7 -> 9 -> 11 -> 12 -> 13. GS-14 is a supervisory position that you must apply for.

    Has anyone received any correspondence about Phase I Assessments yet? Just wondering if they’re sticking true to the anticipated assessment window.

      Take it with a large grain of salt, think of it more as a projection and hurry up/wait.

      The announcement said the anticipated (online) assessment window would start March 4th.

      No. Hasn’t stopped me from wearing out my refresh button on usajobs and my email.

    I'm not sure if anyone else has looked at sablog site but there's a really great program that helps prepare you for the hiring process

        Just got email for Phase I Assessment.

        Hope everyone that applied actually read the announcement, unless you selected a hard-to-fill location, you may not get an email:

        "Veterans and applicants choosing one or more of the locations with an incentive will receive priority consideration and will move forward in the testing process. Additional applicants will be referred in the order in which their initial application was received. If additional vacancies become available, we will seek candidates to move forward in the testing process based upon the order in which their initial application was received."

          Completely put the wrong location on my application on accident I just noticed, any chance of changing location preference? I actually meant to put one that has incentive pay. Can you change the preference if you get selected to move forward I wonder?

          What time did everyone get their applications in? Mine was submitted at 1729 est. I picked a hard to fill location with no email yet, but also a DHS only applicant.

          Springsteen. You typically are not held to the initial locations selected. There will be office selection at the end of the process based off needs and current office vacancies. It may be different for these hard to fill/incentive locations though. As they're looking to rush fill/expedite those fills, they may verify at an earlier point that you are willing to go to those locations and may have to sign on the dot sooner that you will go there. ie: Maybe at the point of a conditional offer. (though this is just speculation).

        Got my email as well, they’re keeping up with that timeline they posted so far. Good luck y’all.

              NoliKenpo oh very cool, definitely pair up at a later time in the process. I spoke to a recruiter and was told I got more chances of getting hired in Puerto Rico since the agency only looking for bilingual their.

              Yeah, I’ve actually lived most of my life in Puerto Rico. I’m just trying to go back somehow.

              How’s your Spanish?

            The minimum was 100 words, maximum was 500.

              I think you should be ok if you went over 500.

            How long to receive the results? I thought I saw somewhere that said Phase 1 results were immediate? I didn't get anything yet.

              Remember that they have to read your writing sample to “grade it”. There’s no way the results are immediate. The government doesn’t use fancy artificial intelligence to grade an applicant’s essay.

              The writing assessment was called the AWA, automated writing assessment. It specifically said it wasn't being graded by a person in the description before you took it as well.

              I just completed the phase 1 assessment. However, I did not receive an e-mail confirmation that I completed the test. My application in USA Jobs has also not updated to reflect i completed the assessment.

              Did anyone receive anything?

                I did not get anything either so I am assuming it went through ok.
