DHS

The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 230,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. [Their] duties are wide-ranging, but [their] goal is clear: keeping America safe. (source: www.dhs.gov)

If I am a current GS-08 and I get picked up for a job that is GS-07 through GS-12 Could they start me at GS-10 then 11 and 12? Or would I have to be a 9/11/12?

That depends on multiple things:

A. What the promotion potential for the job is and whether the position has two step promotions or one step from 7-8-9-10.
B. Whether or not you meet time in grade for GS-08 to actually be assigned to a higher grade.

You are confusing grade and steps.
If you are selected for a 7/9/11/12 job then you will start either at the GS-7 or the GS-9 level. You will meet time in grade for either the GS7 or GS9 level, but you may not meet the qualifications (specialized experience) for the GS-9 level.

There may be a few one grade interval jobs that have promotion potential at the GS-12, but they are rare. If it is a one grade interval job then the progression would be 7/8/9/10/11/12.

I am sorry, but I do not have the time to respond to private messages. I will not respond to them.
