Lexi - I have a similar timeline as yours. I emailed HR about a week ago and they stated, "pending preliminary background investigation" All we can do now is be patient. I am sure HR is backed up with all the mass hiring. In fact, we still have the whole month of Nov. I would be more concern if we didn't hear anything by Dec 3rd.

Just updating everyone here as it may help with some questions everyone has. Received my FO yesterday for the GP announcement (GS9). I immediately reached out to the RG HR rep who had told me I was also selected for that announcement. I explained my situation and she said she would get that offer over to me ASAP so I can make a decision based on the location(s) offered there. Does anyone know how long I have to accept the initial FO I received yesterday (10/18)? Also my EOD was 12/6 like most others here.

I've been reading the thread and I don't know if I'm considered wave 2 or Wave 3 - some are saying no selections will be made in Wave 3. They said October we should know so I'm desperately trying to be patient but was curious if anyone heard anything? My IRS portal still stays "You've been selected" for GS9.

Thank you!

^^ That’s what I was told too regarding background. It seems some folks got to pick a report date. I’m just trying to avoid moving during the holdays.

I appear to be starting in the Dec 6th cohort.

I am interested in finding out a bit about the equipment.

I read earlier that they send you a printer and a laptop, but what about a cell phone? Do you get one of those, or use your own, or what?

We get cellphones. It’s an iPhone XR at the moment.

I received a call today from HR regarding the TO. I sat on the phone for over 21 minutes as the HR rep prepared the TO and she made sure it was in my email before hanging up. My concern is as I was reading it later in the day (I was busy at work when she called), I noticed that the salary doesn't reflect the locality pay for the area. Is this something I should be concerned about or will this be rectified in the FO?

No idea about the last part, but mine reflects the correct locality pay.

I should've known this process was going to be irregular for me. Fits my life lol. Yeah the salary in the TO is the regular GS 9 salary w/0 the locality for Washington/Baltimore.

I'm in the same locality. Don't know what the vets here think, but I'm sure an email would be fine double checking considering mine is fine.

Hi Everyone,
I received my FO today, I was on call with my HR specialist for about 20 minutes while she prepared it. Since I'm already an IRS employee, they skipped straight to the FO with a start date of the 12/6. I am losing a bit of pay, as the locality is different from my current locality. But I'll will take the opportunity. Also this was through the RG program, and like I said I'm a current IRS employee so my timeline might differ from others. Thank you to everyone for the help along the way.

Could we have the same HR specialist? The similarities!

Good to hear the service is hiring more Vets. Our work force is short on Veterans. More the better.

Rumor has it, they are no longer doing interviews. They are making offers right from usajobs.

So I urge everyone waiting to check the application status.

Do you know if there will be additional RO announcements in the future? My husband got a firm offer for contact rep in ACS to start 11/08...Would like to apply as an internal for RO GS7 on next round. He BQ'ed back in May but no interview.

Wow.

And I thought my, "Interview with a person who then transcribes your answers to the hiring person that you don't even talk to" interview was weird.

Not interviewing candidates is another level.

Got an email to pick up my credential. Went there to pick it up, was told that I couldn't because a manager hadn't done some form. A manager hadn't done this form, because I have not received my final offer yet and thus, I do not have a manager to begin with. I've only been told by HR when my projected start date is.

So if you get an email to pick up your credential and you haven't had any contact with a manager to fill out a form, make sure you call before you waste your whole afternoon + parking money.

Don't feel bad. I am a former RO, GS-11, with a few years experience and the office I applied to did not select me because they were only hiring GS-09 Veterans and I am not a Veteran.

I hope they hire civilians in the next go around.

I read on this thread that they'll have another Mass hiring announcement on December 2021. Hoping it happens.



Wow that is odd. What location did you apply to? The status on the RG path for the GS 9 updated to “You’ve been hired” which is weird. I hope it’s no mistake. It went from “referred to selecting official” to “You’ve been hired”. I hope I have lol.


Congratulations!

Should not be a mistake.

The office I applied for was Houston.





I hope not! I’m trying not to get ahead of myself. Especially not having heard anything. I thought about applying to Houston too but was scared of the move. I’m still stuck on the fact that they filled that wave with all veterans. That’s a lot! Hopefully you’re in there next wave! Good luck!


This would explain why I wasn't offered a position in Houston even with a BQ rating. I was a 30%+ CPS Vet but only qualified as GS-7. Kinda odd they hired 18 positions only 9 or above. Things worked out in the end, took a position with DOL that is career ladder to 12, 100% remote work, I'm pretty happy at DOL :)

Yeah Spazilton, I was quite suprised. As I mentioned before, I was a GS-11 RO for a few years, I got it when you had to interview for a GS-11, a few years back, and made BQ as a GS-09.

Received the Non-Select email and I inquired. They said they had only selected GS-09 Veterans for Houston.

I'm in the same situation as you, waiting on a Final Offier for a GS-09 step 10 with a different Agency, 100% Remote and promotion potential 12. Would still consider the IRS unless they fast track me at this Agency to a GS-11 after 90 days, which can happen.
Let's see...

Ouch, that stinks. When I was fingerprinted and all, they specifically told me not to pay attention to the email and not to come get it. I got the credential pick up email back in July or August. Got my firm offer, first day was the end of September, and just got my credentials a week ago. I am outside 50 miles from a credentialing center, so I couldn't travel without higher-up approval. They had to ship it to my home with activation equipment to activate the card remotely.
