Hello all, I received an email today about taking part in a CRA assessment. Can anyone explain this assessment and the difficulty of the test. Thanks again

Was it for the collections position? I also received it today. Took the Jsap last weekend and was placed CAT A. Didn't know they were going to send another test.

I also applied to that announcement but haven't received an update on it. Not completely sure which announcement the CRA I have to take it for.

I've taken the assessment before. I didn't find it difficult. If you have a customer service background, you should do okay. I took the assessment a few years ago and I am assuming that much hasn't change.

Guess we know the site the CRA was initiated from because the status changed to “application reviewed”. 😕

Did anyone else have their status updated to “application reviewed” on the CR announcements. I understand this status is a bad thing since it didn’t update to “referred”. Is that right? I know that the superior qualified are receiving emails about going in for fingerprinting and was under the impression that they’re going through the best qualified applicants now despite the announcement not closing until 08/08.

Yes, both of mine for CR *seasonal* are application reviewed. My other application for CR/Collections still states referred to selecting official. For this one I have signed TO, paperwork, and completed CRA, but no fingerprint email and have not seen any more movement since.

Has anyone gotten an update? I see some these announcements were extended two times first to 08/08 then to 08/12.
The USAJOBS status updated on one announcement to "Referred - you are among the best qualified applications and will be moved to the next step in the process" the other just says "Received - Reviewing Qualifications".
The funny thing is that no email was sent based on the status update to referred on the one application.
I sent an email to Ogden HCO to ask a few questions about the CRA and which location is was sent based off of or to see if it would be reviewed by both. They were two separate announcements both for CR so I just wondered which office sent the one CRA. Maybe it will be considered by both? I don't know.
Just still waiting to hear.
