I received a new hire email this morning detailing the schedule for 9/13-9/15. Check your emails 9/13 hires. Things are starting to get real :)

Also congratulations to all TO and FO.

I don't suppose that anybody from HR is in here and can provide some input on this.

I'll preface this with saying that before I had a TO for Revenue Agent for this announcement, I had a FO for Revenue Officer and had completed the required fingerprints, photos, and eQIP (post-FO) for RO, but I'd prefer to work as an RA.

I received a TO for RA in this announcement back on July 13 for an original EOD of 8/16. I accepted and selected which POD I wanted. After a few emails, my HR rep said I didn't need to re-do fingerprints and photos since they'd been done in the last month. According to my HR rep, there was nothing else I needed to do but wait on a firm offer. Enough time passed that my EOD became estimated to be 9/13, and now from an email 2 weeks ago, it'll probably be 9/23. They say that they're waiting on something in my background to come back, which confuses me because it was fine for RO (I went from TO to FO in 12 days for the RO position). I'm clean so I wouldn't think anything would come back.

I also declined my firm offer for Revenue Officer because the EOD dates were the same for both (hindsight 20/20, eh?), but now it's a month later with no movement or any word on when things will change.

I received a box with my laptop and dock today. There's another box scheduled to be delivered next week... any idea what it might contain? Trying to figure out how much space I'll need. Anyone know what else we should get besides laptop + dock?

My other box is coming tomorrow so I will let you know. I think it will be our printer. You should be receiving office supplies soon too. It will have a headset, stapler, pens, pencils, paper clips, paper, scissors, folders, rubber bands, etc.

For those who are new hires, how are you setting up your office space? Are dedicated office spaces a requirement? Will you need dedicated routers/modems to plug into the computer?

I received 3 boxes so far. First was my printer/scanner (9lbs). Second was the laptop kit(~13lbs). Lastly, I received my training course papers (32lbs lmao). I'm still waiting on the monitor, which should be coming soon because they sent a keyboard and mouse. Also a headset and office supplies, but I have no email stating they've shipped yet.

Update: I just received my printer/scanner/copier. It was in its original box. I hope it’s not damaged.

Congrats to all of you who got a FO on your positions and are starting soon. I’m starting to feel like I’m not what they were looking for. Should I be getting a rejection letter in the mail if I didn’t get selected?

Greetings, I just want to say hello and thank you for everyone that provides input. I have been trying to get my foot in the door with IRS and recently received (8/31) a TO for SBSE recent graduate. The EOD is supposed to start 10/25.

I have a question and am wondering if anyone might want to take a crack at it...

Currently I started as a GS-9 on 6/05/21 and am wondering if my EOD would remain 6/05 or move to 10/25 for the promotion/step increases?
I applied to this job in may as a GS-5.
I am going from BOP to IRS.

If anyone knows that would be helpful, I may be sending a email to HR about this..

But nonetheless, congratulations and I wish everyone the best!

If you are currently a 9 for BOP and accepted an offer for a 5 in the IRS, you'll likely be a 5 step 10.

I haven't heard of anyone getting any rejections by first class mail. So....I would not worry unless I get an email saying "not selected" or position filled. You are not alone in feeling a little left out, so unless the IRS stops looking, I would continue to assume they are still looking for US! :-)) Keep applying and never give up hope. I have several applications that are under referral and I have interviewed for two positions......Keep trying!

Training is pretty slow. My group is having issues connecting to Outlook, so we can really just do the Treasury ethics quizzes online and read the position guides. I'm excited to start the on the job training later in the year though.
