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)

Does anyone have an email address for the HR person for Atlanta? There was only a phone number in the firm offer letter.

If you go to the announcement in USAJOBS and click on the link that says "see original announcement" (or something ot that effect), there should be some sort of HR contact towards the bottom. What I did was scan the form to my computer, then emailed it to the contact listed there. Your announcement may be a bit different, but there should be some sort of contact on that page.

I haven't received an e-quip as of yet. I actually completed one about 2 years ago, and received a security clearance at that time. They said that would be good for 5 years, so I'm hoping I won't have to complete another one yet.

Is the process quicker for applicants who have worked for the government already and have already obtained a security clearance? I haven't had any correspondence since I did my fingerprints September 26th and the start date is October 29th. A friend of mine who worked for HUD and TSA previously got her final offer last Tuesday and we are set to work at the same location in Baltimore.

I wasn't a former employee and I received my offer earlier this week. After I did my fingerprints I received the email for the e-qip. That was back on October 2nd. Have you completed the e-qip previously?

I've actually had to do a couple of them before as I have prior federal experience. Last time I did one, I had to go through a more extensive one as I was going through the security clearance background investigation (be glad you don't have to do that one for this job - lol - it is a headache).

At any rate, I talked to HR today and found out that that is still good for 3 more years, so I won't have to go through that particular process again. They just had to do the fingerprint check to make sure there wasn't anything between then and now that would raise a flag.

I haven't received the EQIP email ye and have never done one before. I reached out to the HR contact and he told me that my pre-screen was pending a review. When he emailed my friend earlier in the month, he told her she didn't have to get fingerprinting done since her prints were already in the system and to disregard the USAccess email.

I've got to say that, at least for those of us in Atlanta, I'm a bit concerned about how training is going to go. Day 1, and we're already behind schedule. 20 years in the work force, including other government jobs, and I've literally never seen anything like what I saw last night.

On the plus side, at least NTEU had their act together. I've got a feeling we may need the union if training is anything like orientation. I've got the tax knowledge, so I'm not worried about that portion of it personally. My concern is the procedures and systems that are specific to this particular job.

Cleveland is #1 in training. Good luck and welcome to Hogwarts. You'll find some truly ancient things to deal with.

I don't mean to be dismissive, and I'm glad this forum is a place where all of us IRS employees and other federal workers or applicants can share some of our concerns, but it was just one day and the first day. How behind could you be? On mandatory briefings? You have months of training, and there's flexibility built in to the scheduling. Go with the flow. I'm not in Atlanta or AM anymore and don't know what happened, but whatever happened, systems being down, new hires not showing up on lists, supplies being needed, classroom mixups, waiting around for people, badge issues, there's plenty of time. As long as you get paid in a couple weeks, it's way too early to be worrying about it lol. A month in and training is bad, that would be a different story. But I doubt training will be bad.

I've been in 5 different federal jobs, including 4 different IRS jobs, and liked most of them -- but I always tell people that Atlanta AM was the best training I ever had, high-quality with the best instructors, teaching style, class engagement, structure, and course material I ever had at any job. We had fun, it was casual, but they also got the job done, and how. Every training class since, has been all right, but I've been comparing to Accounts Management in Atlanta. So much that's confusing or glossed over quickly for other people in a later class for a different job, like how to navigate the IRS intranet and research on SERP, how to find out what different IDRS command codes do and interpret the screens, how to input manual adjustments, what all the different MFTs are, basic income tax law and forms both common and not so common, IAT tools, and phone procedures, is like second nature for me because AM equipped me with the tools I needed to find out what I needed to know and taught me well. The job itself was too stressful for me and the 21 IRM is a bit of a mess, but the training was excellent. Within just a few months, all the acronyms and anything else unfamiliar I just mentioned will probably make complete sense to you and should have been reinforced by AM in Atlanta in multiple ways, both in class and on the floor with a coach. But it's also a marathon, not a sprint.

I'm glad the union made a good impression at least. Hope you joined!

On another topic, I hope you saw from that other thread you were interested in that an external Revenue Agent announcement is also now up on USAJobs, not just internal.

Last but not least ... Welcome to the IRS! I hope you like it, get the jobs you want in it, and choose to stay with the agency for many, many years.

Where does hiring process go from 'As a condition of employment, a review of your Federal income tax returns was conducted'? I am in compliance. Does that mean that I have a chance? I wrote them to get the status of my application and I was told to look out for an email. From your experience can you tell me where I stand? Thanks

I don't have any particular insight into the hiring process for those jobs, sorry. They're more specialized and higher-graded than the mass hirings that a lot of us here would have experience with.
