wow that is great and you haven't received a call yet?  I know the agency opens on 7/21---please post when you hear something.  I applied for the San Francisco region.

I applied for both the public and the status Examiner positions.  I was also ranked best qualified.  I applied during the second week of the announcement and received my rating three weeks later.  As of today, I have not been contacted.  From my understanding, the agency that handles the rating process is not apart of the CFPB and only passes the information on.  Thus, they do not know whether the list will result in interviews being scheduled or simply offers being made without interviews.

Although the transfer date is set for July 21, I would think that all hiring would have to take place before then.  From my point of view, this means that they have to have staff in place and ready to carry out their assigned duties on that date. 

Because this is a new agency, people will  have to be trained, equipment will have to be assigned (especially since it requires working from home and traveling frequently) and everyone will have to be acclimated to their new remote teams. 

If I am not mistaken, offers have to be extended at least 30 days prior to the desired start date.  Based on all of these things, I would anticipate offers going out sometime in May.  In addition, they would need time to initiate the background process.

You must already work for the federal government to be considered as a status Examiner.  I applied within the initial 5 days but just received my rating for 4B as eligible through self-certification.
 
However, I do think I may be better suited for the Consumer Financial Protection Analyst position.  I have a MBA, MPA, and a Master in Proj MGMT and am working on my final (YES FINAL):) DOCTORATE DEGREE in organizational development and change.  The 5 days ended on the 13th  and am awaiting results for this position.  I wouldn't think they would have that much time to interview.  Therefore, reading the announcement again---your pay will be set at how your resume is worded, etc. 
 
To make a long story short, I will take whatever job they offer to get out of private industry.
 
Maybe they are trying to get everyone on board around mid-June...just in case you have to relocate.  I live in Oklahoma City by job transfer and will take the first suitable job offer I get.
 
Oh---don't know how many they are hiring but I assume internal comes first.
 
Thanks for your repeated responses because they are very helpful

Hi.  A friend applied today.  He is a service connected disabled veteran.  If he and others like him are found eligible for this job, their names go to the top of the list for consideration.  I imagine the new agency will be flooded with employees from Department of Treasury.  If there are more cutbacks over there, it could make the IRS Agents' s work even more  burdensome.  I image some IRS Agents will try to leave.  They have thankless jobs and I am thinking many will want to transition out.  Well, we will watch the clock and see if we hear anything in three weeks.  Thanks for starting this thread.

Hi Betty.  I think you are right.  In addition, there may be a ton of people who are tired of worrying about appropriations and whether or not they will be eventually furloughed, which would make CFPB.

The only thing I am wondering, and LaVee already touched on this, is how they are going to select candidates.  With only about 150 people in place, right now, it seems as if it would be a lot of work to interview all the people.  If I am not mistaken, they will be hiring/transferring nearing 1000 people.  Notwithstanding this, the original announcements were also extended for two weeks.  So, overall, they may not have gotten enough candidates and those that they did receive applications for probably applied to multiple listings.

It is definitely going to be interesting to see how this all progresses.  Good Luck to everyone that applied and hopefully we will all be working together soon!

Yes, hopefully all will all be working together soon.  I am thinking they received just thousands and thousands of applications many from those who were not qualified.  The questionaire responses have to be backed up by experience within the resume.  For sure the computers are working overtime scanning to see if everything matches up.  I worked in a new federal agency one time - a start up - and I was on a list for a year before I was hired - and I was not interviewed - I was told to report to training out of state, which I did.  Hopefully all will be picked up on the "first wave".  I am wondering if they will staff D.C. first which makes a lot of sense.  Best of luck to all.

They are so tight lip about it and the HR Specialists doesn't seem to know anything about start date, etc.

Our friend who completed the questinnaire and submitted his resume remarked that it looked like they were looking primarily for folks in the banking industry, but he remarked that not every banker will have the audit and fraud detection background needed.  Many folks have been laid off in banking and the mortgage industry - I certainly hope this agency picks up many of these folks too.  We'll have to sleuth around to see if we can pick up any hints!

I don't think they received as many applications, as most would think.  There is not much posted on the internet with respect to CFPB, and it is one of those entities that you have to specifically be searching for in order to find it - which is why they probably extended the announcements for an additional two weeks. I have a number of co-workers, who work in Federal government, that will say "hunh" if you mention the CFPB..lol

I will work from any state to get the job, Oak/San will be my first choice, I dont care for 10 months of winter NY/Chi/DC but I learned in the military to deal with it. Id like a job that will keep me moving like ricochet rabbit... Im dying sitting at my desk now that I dont travel anymore. Do you think they cant get people because of the travel requirements? Also, what payscale are they using because it seem higher the the general with local. Im not a fed emp , all I have is a Bachelors in IT and  MS in accounting, 13 years as a support mngr Telcom and a Vet TP. I hope my chances are good.

Hey, I read that budget but it appears to be so vague with the type of posisitons they are hiring for.  very hush, hush to me.  The agency is due to open in July and my goodness--I would think that letting people know early next month would be appropriate.  The treasury department salaries are a little higher just like HHS  and FBI, I noticed.  Homeland Security can post some pretty high salaries.  I feel they should respond soon. 
 
I hope you get it too, I applied for the San Francisco region for Examiner and the Consumer Financial Protection Analyst job.

I see from the info you posted, that they are looking initially for audit and examiner types - fraud experts. It seems like.  If you have 10% SC from the military and you otherwise qualify there on the BQ list, you should be good to go.  When I worked for that new agency, I was selected off a register and then sent out of state for a full month of training, and then I reported to work after training. This could be the case this time too.  Initially, they have to hire "hundreds" your link says.  I hope it is not all in the snow and ice too!  Brrr!Smile

Hi Milk,

I definitely think that the travel may be an issue for a lot of people, especially those with very young children.  If I am not mistaken, travel appears that it may be a minimum of 50%.  This was actually one of my favorite aspects of the job.  I love to travel.  It doesn't matter where I go, I just like to go!  UNFORTUNATELY, I'm not married and I don't have any kids (although I am hoping that once I reach my 30s, that will change...lol), so it seems pretty sweet, to me.

As far as the budget that was posted, I so hope that it is inaccurate - less than 400 full time employees in 2011 with the rest coming on board in 2012? 

Also, I think you have an excellent chance Milk.  And, the payscale that they use in a new payscale "CN".  It is different than the regular GS pay scale, in that a CN-3C (grade 7) makes almost as much as a GS-11.  It appears that the pay for the new agency is on par with that of the SEC and CFTC, which is great!

Hope all is well today! I applied for the Examiner job within the first 5 days am just getting an eligible rating for grade 4B. Also, applied within first 5 days for Consumer Financial Protection Analyst position. Do you think they are rating who they want first and ignoring the fact of when u applied?

Wondering how my chances are with over 10 years in accounts receivable, BBA, MBA,MPA,MPM. A and working on Doctorate in Organizational Development and Change? I feel it can be useful for the agency.

In my opinion, it makes sense to stand the agency up with Treasury transfers, to help develop policy and SOP's, versus bringing people on board with no operations knowledge.  For FY 2011, appropriations are only for a little over 300 employees.  In excess of transfers, many of the people brought on board will be trainees and need extensive training.  I don't see the need to rush a bunch of people in the door prior to July just because.  Staffing levels will need to be adjusted based on geographical locations (DC will probably have priority), interviews conducted, background checks performed, clearances adjudicated if necessary.  This is not a 3 month process.
