@Aline Sorry I forgot to answer your first question. I got the invitation around 2 weeks ago. Menos

@Vera How did it go? In what field are you applying ?

@Michael: I applied for biotechnology. The interview went well, but I did not make it to the next round. Probably because my German is not good enough. Unfortunately they have the policy not to give you any feedback... Menos

just some more info while we all wait(i know this process is painful- ive been through it a few times without good luck, unfortunately) June 13th is the tentative start date for ALL examiners for this round of hiring so that should tell you a lot. i just heard this today and apparently the Supervisors are apparently suppose to turn in their lists by tomorrow so calls/emails obviously follow after that is done. We might hear something later since the start date would be further down the road. i'll keep updating if i find out more or hear back from them. btw, the chemicals and computers i think hear back first and the electrical and mechanicals may hear back later as their interviews were conducted in that order.

I applied for EE position and just received notification that I have been selected. Last name starts with "C" and interviewed on April 13th. It seems that the selections for EE and Comp Science will begin to be sent today. It may take until Friday for HR to finish sending all decisions to the applicants. Best of luck to everyone and very grateful to all who have contributed to this posting. Menos

I interviewed on 4/13 for a BME position and received notification on 5/2 that I was selected. In a follow up email for the Declaration of Federal Employment form, they indicated a tentative start date of 6/13. Hope this info is helpful for those still waiting - good luck! Menos

I interviewed on 6/10 ME for Alexandria, I haven't heard anything since then and my status still referred. Did anyone heard from Alexandria?? Menos

I interviewed back in April and mine still says "referred" fir BME, I emailed HR they stated I was resubmitted for another cutoff date. Disappointing process for me thus far. Menos

For those that have received TOs, wondering your background. I was told on a separate forum that previously out of 14 hired 12 had PhDs. This may be specific to BME but was curious. Menos

Congrats!!. I also got tentative offer yesterday. I have submitted all my paper work, awaiting for my fingerprint taken. Do you get a final offer? My email stated that I'll receive a firm offer with further reporting instruction. Menos

At GS-12 level they will allow you to telework only 32 hrs in 2 Wks. At GS-9 which you can get it in a year, they will allow you only 10hrs in 2 wks. Any one who get firm offer pls update this thread. I've sent my paper work last week Wend. and still waiting for the firm offer.

i interviewed 6/10 ME Alex, i got an email not selected for cutoff dates. did you get something like that? Menos

I did. I read somewhere that there was a glitch or something and everyone got that email. I can't get a straight answer from the HR rep but my understanding is we'll get an email saying yes or no eventually. I don't think the "not selected cutoff date" is a no, but I could be wrong. I'm also ME Menos

i contacted Keisha and told me my application will be reffered to the next cutoff but my usajob account says i am not selected. i am really confused! do you know when they will be contacting people for 6/25 cutoff? Menos
