DOJ SLIP

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Nov 21, 2013 10:31 am

Wondering if anybody has heard of components hiring yet. Had interview with one last Tuesday, and a reference told me she was called this Monday. Got the usual line about timing (you'll know when you know, 2-3 weeks, 28 days to decide etc). But I wanted to see what anybody else was experiencing.

I have not heard of any offers for employment yet, and I also had an interview last week. If you don't mind, what component(s) are you waiting on/what component was your reference contacted for? Antitrust/Tax/FBOP? To my knowledge, none of my references have been contacted yet, but you and I might not be waiting on the same components.

My interview was with FBOP. Sounds like things are good for both of us, so far.

In case you did not notice, they amended the application timelines on the website after the government shutdown:

• July 31 – Application Opens
• Early September (day after Labor Day) – Application Deadline
• Early October – Interview Candidates Selected
• Mid. Oct – early Nov. – Telephone Interviews
• Late Nov. – January – February – Offers Extended

I'm also waiting to hear back from Antitrust. Do you know if they called all of your references or just some?

I've heard that Antitrust offers are out; did anyone hear anything yet?

I haven’t heard anything-Deana posted on the community page that DC and Chicago have designated finalists. I applied for DC but am still sitting on “Selected for Consideration for Employment.” I guess that means I am not going to be selected, but her comments so far have been unclear.

My status just updated to "Finalist." Does anyone know what that means? Does finalist mean that you got the job, or is there another interview?

I'm wondering if anybody is having a similar experience with SLIP's OCIJ or BOP components:

OCIJ
All 3 of my references were contacted 10 days ago and provided recommendations. My status changed to "Finalist" this week, but I did not receive an email notifying me of the change. I haven't heard anything else.
Does anyone know of SLIP-OCIJ finalists receiving offers? Does anyone know of SLIP-OCIJ finalists having references contacted?

BOP
A classmate is in the same boat with the SLIP-BOP. He had 2 interviews. His status changed to "Finalist" but no word beyond that.
Does anyone know of SLIP-BOP finalists receiving offers?

Thanks!

I had the same experience. All of my references were contacted and status changed to finalist but haven't been contacted by anyone. Trying to figure out what being a "finalist" means.
