Anyone know anything about this job?  From what I was told, the FBI combined 4 or so job titles and descriptions into this new job.   
 
I have been in consideration for an SST job, and just heard that if/when I get a final offer it will be for the OST job, as SST no longer exists and was rolled into the new OST position.
 
Anyone know any more about this change and what the OST position is like? Any comments/insight from you FBI insiders would be appreciated!

Manny,
 
When did you apply, if you don't mind me asking?  How did you find out about the change from SST to OST?  And what have you heard about the difference between the two?
 
Also, what city/cities are you being considered for?
 
Best of luck!

Wow, this place has really slowed down lately.  Seemed like when I first joined people were posting all the time, but now postings are few and far between, and responses to questions are slow to come.

Anyone have any thoughts about this? (Or an answer to the question in my OP?)  Hopefully no one's posting because they've all been hired by the Gov and dont have time to anymore, but sadly, I doubt that is the case.

Sorry about the delay response but like you said new hires have a lot on their plates right now and also, at least in my case, for some reason this site forced me to create a new account in order to log in. 
1- I applied March 2011
2- I found out about the change while going to the hiring process by one of the HR Specialist.
3- I dont have much information about what the change involves other than there will be  more responsibilities therefore better training, which is good for us.

I hope this helps

Manny/MBcls:

Thanks for the reply! What city/cities are you being considered for?
How far are you I'm the application process? (had a BI, had a poly, passed BI, etc)?

I agree, when I heard there were going to be more responsibilities and duties in the new OST position, I was excited that there would be more training and experience.

Best of luck, and hope we get the call soon!

oh nice! Thats great, congrats! Have you started working or do you have a start date?
 
I've passed the BI and am now just waiting for a vacancy to open up.  According to my HR contact, once there is a vacancy I'll get the call.

Passing the BI is a huge step, believe or not.  Just hang in there until the call. I know it could get painful at times but just try to concentrate on other things you like, without getting in trouble of course.

I havent started yet because i still taking care of personal obligations but i do have a starting date.

Manny, did HR say anything to you about attending a 1-week training session at Quantico before you begin work? 
 
HR told me that they recently changed things so that every new hire Enters On Duty (EOD) at Quantico, attends a 1-week orientation/training/welcome-to-the-FBI time, and then starts work at their assigned office.  Apparently the weeklong class has all new hires in it together, regardless of job description, so SAs, IAs, OSTs, and any other new hires all attend the same thing, and then go on to their respective additional training or to their office to start work.
 
Have you heard about any of this?

Yeah, I know it is and im excited to be this far in the process.  Just trying to be patient and not think about it too much :)
 
How long did you have to wait from passing the BI to getting the call? Are they pretty good about working with you on your start date, once you get the call?  Do they want you right away, or are they good about scheduling your start date when it works best for you?  Sounds that way from what you said, but just curious.

It all depends on the openings they have but, the wait is not usually too long like, for example, for SA. Once you received the call they are very helpful, professional, and flexible with your needs. They will work around your schedule as much as possible.

Yeah, there is a week at Q for training and learn about the FBI roots.

Cool, thanks!
 
So for you, how long was your wait from passing BI to getting the call?  I know its anecdotal, but I'm curious what other people's experience has been.
 
Thanks!

It was about 2-4 months because the original position i was applying for was filled before my BI was completed. If otherwise,  I would say that the estimated wait time is about 2-3 months.
