Internal Revenue Service

As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

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.


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.



Yeah nobody told me that.

So got a firm offer today. Excited about that.

Quick questions though, has anyone negotiated final step in their GS level that's been a non-Fed hire? If yes, how did it go?

I'm moving from a GS-11 knowledge/education in a financial institution to the IRS at a GS-9 and want to ensure I succeed financially from the get go. I'm prepared to take a lower amount, though, not a step 1 amount.

I tried to call the point of contact for HR that sent me thr offer, but her number doesn't work. I did send an email directly to her however.

Any advice would be great.

Congrats....on my TO they matched my pay and when I rec'd a step increase after my TO, I emailed my HR rep and she said they will match my current pay. But nothing is set in stone as of yet (final offer). Did you submit an updated SF-50?

Sadly I'm not a current/former fed, so I don't believe that the form applied to me, at least not as of yet.

It seems like there is wiggle room for candidates like that, but little to no room for civilian candidates such as myself.

I asked about a salary increase/match while waiting for my FO (I’m a non federal employee but I work for NYS) I would also be taking a pay cut. My HR contact informed me that unfortunately for this announcement (revenue officer) they’re not considering salary adjustments.

Congratulations on the FO - I’m still waiting for mine. Got an email from HR on Friday that they’re still waiting for the results of my background check before moving forward. Good luck to everyone still waiting!!!

Figured I'd post my current hiring timeline just in case anyone else is looking for answers (like me).

I received my TO on 10/12 and completed all the onboarding tasks/forms I could that same night. I was informed during my phone interview that my start date is 12/06. Today marks two weeks since the TO and I haven't heard anything from the GSA about scheduling my fingerprinting appointment (checking inbox and spam). I emailed my HR contact twice asking about this but I haven't gotten a response.

My new hire portal says this appointment was "due" over a week ago. Judging from the other responses here though, it seems like the whole process just takes a while so I'm not too worried yet. Hoping things get underway soon!

Thank you much! Yeah, it's great to be offered the position; bittersweet that it's going to end with having to reject the offer, for me at least. At least I was able to do a "temporary reject" due to salary/pay scale.

For those still in process, keep at it. For those that have just gotten in or waiting until the December 6th start, best of luck!

So i asked for an update today since TO said estimated report date is 12/6. Was basically told that I am waiting for the ok on security clearance. I guess this is moving further into the “preliminary background” stage? I also asked if the FO is issued close to 12/6, will they push the start date back so I can give proper notice and move….was basically told no. This is weird to me because, I do have to move a couple of states away and need to give notice (external hire). I did tell them that too. I’m guessing HR is confident an FO will be issued soon? Anyways, this process seems a bit off..

This is helpful MJE. Thank you for the update. I’m an external hire as well and I believe we have the same timeline. That is very weird - especially because previous posts said HR was flexible on start dates. I’m hoping I get an FO soon. I would like to give my current employer notice ASAP. I have a lot to transition that 2 weeks may not be feasible. Good luck!!

Just go to your onboarding portal via USA Jobs.

If you're not showing anything pending, you didn't get it yet.

Oh, I’ve had 1 “pending” task for about 2 months now.
