          Just finished my application. However, I never received a confirmation email after I submitted it on USAJOBS. My USAJOBS profile also states "you haven't finished your application" even though I have. I re-submitted it 2 more times to be safe. Is anyone having the same issue?

            Applied as well. It said my application was submitted, but on the USAJobs homepage under application status it’s saying “you haven’t finished your application”. Anyone else getting that as there status even after submitting it? Also, anyone receive a confirmation email that it was received?

                He’s saying he applied to this announcement. But received the ineligible for 7/9 for the last announcement like many people with extensive experience. And has expectations for the same results.

                Etoolqual I misread that, I was super confused. I didn't think the ATF could move that fast lol

              Got an e-mail saying they received my application. Hopefully, you all did, too, if you applied today!

                  I feel I missed the boat on this one. I can’t seem to find the announcement on USAJobs. For those who applied, was there a number cap on applications?

                    It’s a direct link from the ATF website, go to careers and special agent and you’ll find the link there. It will redirect you to USAjobs but you can’t search for it.

                  Crazy that it’s still open. Even with 3 k applications limit

                    I would guess that the trends we’re seeing in state and local LE recruitment hold true, to some extent, in the Fed world as well.

                    Lfreezy thats because A. The public largely doesn't want to do the job anymore and B. Federal agencies will arbitrarily cut people for unknown reasons, this is excluding legitimate reasons.

                    1) Announcement doesn't show up on a USAjobs search, you gotta go to it from the ATF website. So unless you're in touch with an ATF recruiter or you follow one of these Fed LE boards, you won't know about this announcement.

                    2) Applications to LE across the board are down, including for federal 1811 jobs. To what degree it is caused by the trials & tribulations in recent years for LE, or scandals/bad press, I'm not sure.

                    3) Applications to federal government are down, especially to govt jobs where you can't telework. Basically, people see better options now outside of fed govt (and probably local & state govt too), more pay and much more flexibility/free time/etc. Lastly, post-9/11 and the end of GWOT, IMO people are also less likely to take a lesser paying fed job and the old mystique and prestige of being a fed has worn off IMO. JMO, but I bet the FBI had a lot of success recruiting in the past solely because that applicant could say one day "I'm an FBI agent". Times change and now fed orgs need to figure out how to incentivize and compete in a private sector market that did not exist decades ago and one that changed drastically during the pandemic.

                    4) The background check process. I can't tell you how many people maybe even get a conditional offer to be a fed employee but then drop off due to the clearance process taking forever. People get new jobs, marry, move away, etc and by the time a fed agency is ready to on-board many people have moved on. There's no easy fix, but what I will say is good luck getting skilled private sector applicants to sit through a 3 year process to be a GS-7 with the USMS, or 3+ years to start as a GS-10 as a FBI SA.

                      Nope, two other people I work with have not had movement either. Based on the last one it took about a month and we are right at that line. Should be hearing something in the next couple weeks.

                      Received mine as well. Status on USA Jobs still says "Received". I thought they changed the status to "Referred" or something based on the other forums.
