Internal Revenue Service

As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

This forum will allow you to share and ask job-related questions about this bureau. This is NOT the place to ask tax questions.

In response to the OJI questions—I think there is flexibility in a lot of that. My OJI always drove. She gets car sick and said it would be better for everybody if she drove. I had people that I went through unit training who did all the driving/OJI did none.

I feel like I made my first solo field call after maybe 3-4 months. There were people in my unit training who made solo field calls after a few weeks—mainly people who were internals and had been working collections (ACS) or TAS and had a decent understand of the collections process before they became ROs. I also knew people who made their first solo field call close to the end of their training year.

It really depends on how comfortable you are, how quickly you take to the job, how comfortable your OJI and manager are with you being on your own.

One final thought: my OJI picked a cherry picked a couple of cases for me that were well suited for being my first solo field calls. If you have concerns, share with with your OJI. Talk through the issues you are likely to face with your OJI. And don’t be afraid to tell the taxpayer, “I don’t know, I will get back to you”.

If I took the assessment for the RO position within 3 days and got an email after I completed it, should my application status still say "scheduling for an assessment"?


Thanks!

Mine said “scheduling for assessment” for 3 weeks before changing to referred; but I think it’s different with everyone. You may get a status change sooner or later than my timeframe.

Just got a very odd email in regards to this position. I know they had 18+ positions available for this locality. They are saying that management made NO selections whatsoever?

This happens at times. Just because vacancies are listed for a location does not mean a selection will be made there. Sometimes, management goes in a different direction due to unforeseen circumstances only they know about. Sorry to read about that but if you applied to other PODS you can still be considered for the others!

That only means that no selections were made at the GS-7 level. Selections could of come from the other certificates.

Nothing other than BQ/Referral. Not that worried about it, did get an interview with DOL last Thursday that seemed to go pretty well, they said they had about 4-5 more days of interviews to finish up before they start making selections.

Well best of luck with the DOL job, maybe you'll hear some good news very soon on that one! And I would not count out the RO position just yet...it's still early and a lot of things are happening and changing with the hiring process it seems.

This poster is correct. It’s only for that GS level for that location meaning a GS-9 could still be hired there if they decide to make selections at that grade level on another certificate. It’s important to note that just because you applied for a certain grade level GS-9 does not mean they need to hire you at a GS-9. When I applied, I was offered GS-9 and GS-7 openings for different locations because the hiring managers of different PODS were offering that specific GS level. It’s also possible that they might offer a GS-7 later in the process on another certificate from this hiring because this is only specific to the one you are on right now. Good luck again!

Questions for the current ROs...

How many cases are in your inventory right now? is there a dollar amount threshold for balances per grade level? Just curious.

For me right now, I’m supposed to have a minimum of 150 accounts for my current position.

You will have less cases during your training year than normal inventory levels until you get fully trained. Each manager is different so they will give you inventory based on what they believe you should have during the training year following the targeted inventory standard in the IRM. The following is the standard inventory range:

GS 05/07 49-59 cases
GS 09 59-69 cases
GS 11 53-79 cases
GS 12/13 34-50 cases

The standard inventory range can be found in IRM 1.4.50.10.2 which is available to the public.
