I’ll have a better response to give once I hear back, depending on if I passed or not

I applied for the most recent announcement (GS9 this time around) and really hoping to get picked up for the Tampa location. I went through the entire process a few years ago for GS5 and was offered the job and everything.

Panel interview, reference check, drug test, background check is about equivalent to a Top Secret but you don't actually carry a security clearance. The process took quite awhile for me but my hiring also took place during the pandemic.

Any reason why you didn’t take the job? I find that most people that apply for the position usually accept upon being hired.

Was only offered Chicago as a location and nothing close to home (FL). Living in Chicago by myself on GS5 salary wasn’t gonna work.

Makes sense. You went through the process and passed so you already know how it is and seem qualified

I applied to the recent posting that just closed. About how long did it take for you. What is there to expect on the panel interview? Thanks

Process for me took just over a year but I started right before Covid-19 hit. The questions for me centered around experiences such as tell us about a time you did this or why you would be good fit etc etc. Each panelist engaged. I don't remember it being many questions or too long. It seemed like a straight forward interview with no curve balls. Like a previous poster said, nothing real unique about it.

Does anyone have any updates on this position? I applied and was referred for two advertisements back in April but was never contacted and now I see a new advertisement for the same area I have applied for twice. I am currently a government employee so I know it is a process but has anyone else seen any movement with their application?
