Applied - 11/17/2017
Job Simulation - 1/2018
Proctored Exam - 3/2018
Interview - 6/2018
TO - 7/2018
POD notification - 8/2018
Medical - 8/2018
eQIP invitation - 8/2018
Credit pulled - 9/2018
FO - 11/2018
Entry on duty - January 2019

My application to offer was almost one year and my process mirrored everyone else's. The biggest differences in people's timelines (days or weeks in the month) was the window of available scheduling; for example, my interview was earlier in June than those at other PODs because that's when my POD scheduled it. While our process has felt like it has absolutely dragged at times, it was lightning fast relative to past announcements. I think the average wait time has historically been 3+ years from application to final offer.

thanks to everyone! seeing timelines definitely helps out to see what to expect. As for the simulations, assessments, and interview, is strong accounting knowledge required to succeed in these? Im curious if it is more generic type stuff or if its accounting based material?

You can find your answer on this agency. They helped me a lot in that moment , when I almost did not lose my company. When my company was bankrupt, I need a money to pay a bill, but I can’t get a credit. I was advised to contact this service and they really helped me and saved my business.

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! Found the most recent CI annual report and thought I'd share it for some light reading: https://www.irs.gov/pub/...gation_annual_report.pdf

So are they running buses more frequently from the Taj to chow hall? And on weekends as well? Or do you have to walk?

Yes, they’re running busses more frequently (to both your questions).

Those who started in a FO before going to FLETC, are you getting LEAP pay?

Manny, I am getting LEAP (my understanding at least)

Also for FLETC, bring a sturdy leather belt to carry your red gun and cuffs. Local prices are high.

Anyone at FLETC have an idea how full the place is right now? I have a 5 day course there starting Monday. Wondering if I will be placed on or off center for lodging. Also, what has the weather been like? Thanks.

I am still waiting too. I just completed my tax audit. I was assigned an OJI. So hopefully it will be soon.

Hey all,

I saw a few of you have start dates in December and January. I don’t know if that means field office or FLETC but if you end up here (FLETC) in the next few months shoot me a PM and we can meet when you get here.

Currently classes are single and double bunked, and hotelling. Luck of the draw.

The funeral for 41, the continuing resolution issue, and the holiday season are causing administrative nightmares, so hopefully those waiting for final offers will get that resolved soon.

I will say this, if you’re not already at a decent level of fitness, start. Calisthenics, running, weights, whatever you choose, start. It’ll make life easier, especially here.

Homer had told me early last week to expect my FO last Thursday or Friday, but I haven't heard anything since then. Has anyone spoken to him more recently and heard anything?
