Is anyone else still at "Application received"? This is making me anxious.

I am. I think I'm ready to give up hoap.

It doesn't help that they stopped answering questions on the Avue Community site two weeks ago.

Does anyone know about when SLIP offers really started rollling out last year?

It seems as if tax just started doing interviews this year, so it looks like they're behind. I wonder if the departments not doing interviews get back to candidates faster.

I also wonder why there are divisions that don't do interviews.

This process has me wondering a lot.

Here's the SLIP timeline listed on the DOJ website; I'm not sure how accurate this is, though


Mid-November - December DOJ extends most offers
Early December DOJ notifies candidates not selected as finalists
January/February DOJ completes hiring selections

I can't for the life of me find the link to this thread from last year, which would prove to be way more helpful

I too tried looking for last year's thread. No dice. Probably because advanced forum search is still disabled.

As for timeline, antitrust told me late-october to early-nov for offers.

I dont remember, but she was an "Alternate"

The timeline listed above makes it seem like there is some kind of a waitlist, because it states that decisions go out nov-dec and then "final" decisions go out like a month later

I like that we don't have to worry about movement on the weekends. Makes my life more relaxing for two days.

Just got emailed from the BOP saying we were supposed to send in a writing sample...judging from the amount of people cc'd on this, nobody knew that (also, weird that we were cc'd and not bcc'd...so now I know there are 22 people in the pool??).

Well at least 22 people didn't know that you had to send in a writing sample. How many people is BOP hiring this year? Don't know of 22 is a decent sized pool for them or not.

Somewhere on the DOJ is a site that lists the requirements of each component once you've been selected for further consideration. I think there was a link to it in the initial e-mail they sent out. I never got an official request for a transcript / writing sample from the DOJ, I just sent mine in ahead of my interview because I knew it was required from that site.

As the poster above said, the requirements for what to send in when / if you are selected for further consideration are pretty clear on the DOJ website: http://www.justice.gov/oarm/arm/hp/writingsample.htm#c
