    KJB is right about the forum design being a pain so I will go ahead and answer your questions dude.

    We haven't had any new CO's start in about a month (that I've noticed) but I figure they will start soon because a lot of guys are retiring right now. When they do run IF classes they generally do them back to back to back and hire about 5+ per class. As far as your chances, I don't know. Did you BQ? Do you have experience?

        • They actually have a bunch of new boots starting next week so I guess the hiring has begun again.

            The only experience I have is being a volunteer auxiliary peace officer with the NYPD and having my security license. I dont know what BQ is, so I guess thats a no.

              BQ = Best Qualified
              My advice I wouldn't limit myself to one joint take me for example, I applied to FDC Seatac and FCC Victorville.And,Victorville always needs folks and yet where did I get picked up FCC Pollock.So i'd keep that in mind.

                When I originally applied, I put the Manhattan detention center and Chicago and didn't hear anything for months. I just recently changed it to Coleman hoping maybe to hear something soon since its a big facility. And I never saw my rating when I looked at my profile if I was Best qualified or not.

                • Hey everyone,

                  Just a quick question regarding the firm offer. About how long before your EOD did you receive the firm offer letter? I received my EOD through phone from HR but haven't received any letter yet.

                  Thanks,

                  Shane

                    Go to your profile on uSAjobs and click on APPLICATION STATUS, then all the jobs you put in for will come up. All the way on the right upper hand will be a box that says STATUS. That should say (something like) either "reviewing applications" or You have answered all the questions, or Applied or Referred. you can also click on the box and it will tell you if you are . You will not get referred for an interview unless you BQ. Also just because you get BQ and are referred DOES NOT guarantee you will get an interview. If they have 20 folks and are hiring 3 they will only interview 9 (3 for 1 usually) so stay on top of it or you could slip through.

                    There is not a set in stone time. It will always vary on things falling into place. You will hear of a fast on in a couple weeks and others might take 3-4 months. I would say if you averaged it somewhere in the 2 month mark (IF you have everything done and like stated you have your hard copy) But that could change. I hired in with 2 other Officers at a stand alone USP back in the day and we had our hard copy and start date of NOV. Then 3 days later HR called me and said "Your guys are still hired but we have to bring these 5 Spanish speaking new hires in from El Paso as part of our Spanish immersion program". Yeah the other ones and me finally started in April. That was 15 years ago and they no longer do that program. Not trying to scare you but sometimes things can get south for a but but in fairness my case was a rarity.

                    Good luck
