Have anyone (who is still trying to get in) heard anything? Interview invitations, anyone?
I only got 2 interviews, but a lot of referrals and nothing after.


I only applied for the Arlington position. Had my phone interview on April 10th, my references were contacted a couple weeks ago, and haven’t heard anything else yet.



I am in the same spot in my timeline . Currently waiting for good news :)

Congrats! You can let HR know that neither date works for you, but you have to choose a date according to the federal pay period. They will then check with the office that you are going to in order to see if it is ok with them.

If you are a current federal employee, then they also have to get the office that is losing you to agree too.

Thus, it is basically up to the office you are going to.

Okay, thanks! I’m getting a little anxious because I didn’t hear anything today. I ONLY applied for ISO 1 in Arlington.

After two years away from USCIS (was an ISO in Baltimore), I just received my tentative offer for the ISO-1 position in Arlington on Friday! I'm so ready to come back!

Edit: timeline nowadays seems to take quite a bit longer than when I first EOD in 2015 (applied in April, offered in June, EOD first week of August). This position was open in February, just received tentative offer. I was staring at my email today waiting to hear from OSI until I remembered this forum and saw that it was mostly a week in between the TO and scheduling drug test/completing SF86. Guess I'll have to pump my brakes a bit. Still really excited!

Did they give you flexible options for drug testing? I’m planning on going out of town for Memorial Day weekend and hope this doesn’t interfere with my processing.
