I will now proceed to frantically refresh my email every 2 minutes.

Also, what is an OTJ group assignment?

Hopefully your firm offers come soon! I never received any notification or communication regarding the audit, I guess my taxes were boring

I’m right there with you, furiously refreshing my inbox. Wouldn’t mind a 1/7 or 1/21 start date tbh.

My son received his firm offer last Sunday for a 12-10-2018 start date. He was able to change the start date with help from his future SSA to 1-7-2019. He had a prepaid trip planned for 12-14-18. Great people in CI helped him save the trip.

hey all. I have been lurking here the past week or so trying to get a feel of the hiring process for the IRS CI agent position. If anyone could give a rough step process outline of the hiring process that would be so helpful!

I already know the first step is applying on usajobs (which I'm waiting for to open up sometime this month) but whats step 2 - the last step/finish? Also, for a general timeline, how long does it take from post-app to TO/FOs are sent?

Thanks for all the help and insight! Definitely looking forward to competing for a spot soon.

1. Apply on USAjobs (Nov 2017)

2. Take initial assessment (at home) about a month or two after applying (late Dec/early Jan)

3. Take proctored exam (March 2018 for me)

4. Wait.

5. Wait some more

6. Interview in June

7. Wait a bit more for good measure

8. TO end of July

9. Drug test/background/medical in August/sept

10. Wait a tiny bit more

11. FO in late October.

Biggest wait came out of waiting for those proctored exam results. Good luck!

It has been a long process for sure, but has finally paid off for most of us!! The rest should be getting the news here very shortly.

We can't really complain though because our predecessors have had to wait 3+ years to get where we are, and it "only" took us 12 months. So the whole CI hiring process is substantially quicker than it has been in the past. 12/10 is right around the corner!
