I would be heartbroken to get that far and get a non select email after the fact. I know the TO is tentative and can be withdrawn if something is found to be unfavorable. At least that's what's written in the TO. I hope you get answers sooner than later.


BTW what is SQA?



Also I remember you asking about a "tax check" in a past forum post, did you receive any answers from your HR person about that?

Either way hope you get answers.

I'm still waiting to fingerprint and e-QIP. Was your original date November 7th? Your FO should come soon!


I emailed the e-QIP team and a few days later I got the e-QIP invite (Oct 25), submitted the e-QIP yesterday (Oct 26) and just got the FO this morning. A little worry because the offer says if budget/hiring plan changes, they may rescind the offer. With my start date pushed back to Dec 6th, I don't know if the debt ceiling issue (Dec 3) will affect my offer...this has been a roller coaster ride in every stage...sigh

I received this email and I’ve already started working as an agent so hopefully that means they accidentally sent them out. Especially if you already have a TO

I emailed the e-QIP team and I was told my case is "processing", I guess HR hasn't sent them all my information. I read that part in the TO too and I really hope that is not the case. But I'm thinking these positions probably in the FY2021 budget? hoping....

I just received the email for non-select, but looking closely, it appears to be for the grade I wasn't selected for. When I originally applied I applied for both 11 and 12. I was hired for 1 of the grades and I guess this is the email for the Grade I wasn't selected for.

I applied for an RA position with the SBSE and received a FO.

The position I applied for is in a larger city where cost of living is high, and I was hoping to live in another area due to the telework/remote work possiblity. Hopefully being able to live around 150-175 miles from the PoD office.

Can anyone advise on how often they need to go into the office if telework is allowed?

Thanks,

As a new hire, you might have to go in daily depending on COVID. Generally after training, you will be required to go into the office or the field twice a pay period. It is possible that field visits would be in the opposite direction of your home, making the distance further. You may find that distance to be unmanageable.

So, even though we are "allowed" to live within "x" miles, that doesn't really matter if we need to go in that often.

Well thanks for the input. I put a question in to the Business Unit to see the frequency to be in office. If it's once a week I can make that work...

I completed my e-QIP and received the FO 2 days later. When I tried to log in the account to check status, the system said the e-QIP account does not exist. I saved the receipts of all the signed forms so I think it's ok. Just wonder how do we check for status of e-QIP?

From what I understand, new hires used to go in and were eligible for telework after 12-18 months. That being said, I started in February and only go in the office on occasion to pick up mail. Because of COVID, we are not doing many field visits.

Are their PODs closer to where you want to live?

Looks like there are closer PoDs, but I'm not sure how I could change the reporting location...?

Is it possible to ask your HR Sponsor? They may be able to make a transfer if there are slots open for a closer POD.

I received my equipment today. I start 11/8. UPS delivered it this morning. If you are starting 11/8, I would be on the lookout.


I knew it would be coming soon; however, I wasn't sure how I would be notified.

Please note, they dropped the equipment off and left. Good thing my Ring told me someone was at the door and I was able to get my son to get it.

Are you hard wired to your modem/router? Did you receive instructions to put it together? I don't even have an ID. At my current job, my ID gives me access to the equipment.

Mines is wireless. I guess the Ethernet cord is for precaution if not wireless. I don’t have ID/smart card they have another way for us to sign in

For those still waiting on equipment, sign up for alerts with UPS, that way you will have a tracking number.

I received a text alert basically saying "a package is arriving from the IRS"

My tracking number even showed me where the UPS truck was located on the map the day of delivery.
