I also had an interview a few weeks ago at the FCC. I know they checked references but nothing else.

When did they check references? One of mine was my current employer, who was never contacted.

So my interview was 2/1 and they called one reference on 2/9 and another on 2/12. They haven't call the third one. This wait is tough.

Yeah, but I think they’re just falling behind in their process. They told me they’d have decisions the week of 2/5 after they completed reference checks. I’m not gonna worry til I get the email/letter saying no lol.

I know it takes time and that everyone goes through long waits and ups and downs in this process. I was fine until the interview process happened and now with a holiday weekend coming, I wish that they would just have a heart! haha

I have not heard a thing. A bit frustrating.

Received a qualified email from USACE :) seems like they are still in the process of qualifying/forwarding applicants to offices.

Does anyone know when the FCC made offers in previous years? It seems very late in the hiring cycle but I know two other people who interviewed and they also have not heard anything.

I looked on the 2014-2015 thread. Interview invites were sent out via email early December, where interview invites were given via phone in January this cycle (or at least for me). Not sure when interviews happened, but offers were made the second week of February.

Nobody in the 2015-2016 thread had heard from the FCC after applying.

I can't speak about other years, of course. However, I asked one of my interviewers about it who had been through the process and he said that "heard back in March>" I had hoped that since I interviewed on Feb 1, that would not come to pass. I keep thinking that I will get a call or an email but perhaps it's a letter? Just frustrated about this entire process but still hoping for the best. It helps knowing that we are all waiting (or else we all were rejected!)

Do you know the purpose of the calls? I can't imagine why they would call candidates at this point in the hiring process other than to extend offers...

I sent a follow-up email to OGC but received an auto reply stating that the person was out of the office all week.

It wasn’t exactly clear from the conversation I had about the calls, but they said that they were close to making decisions I think.

I have not. Received an email in Mid-Feb confirming that I was still interested and had not accepted any other offers. Expected something further after that, but still nothing.

I held off applying for any other jobs as this was my first choice, but have started interviewing for other positions. If I get an offer from one of the other agencies I am interested in before USACE, I may have to accept. Need employment for when my clerkship is over and can't wait all year for the districts to start making calls.

I applied to the FCC in 2015-2016. Interviews were in November and I got an offer in late December. I’m not on the hiring committee (and didn’t even know we were interviewing in February), but the last two years have been later.

Thank you for your insight! Patience has its limits but what else can you do but wait?

USACE Folks,

Does anybody know how the district interview process works? Are we more than likely to get more than one district invite, and if we get an invite/offer, are the districts willing to wait for our consideration of other districts if we are still in the interview process? Just wondering how it works if you get an offer from one district, but have interviews in other districts upcoming where you would be more willing to be placed. If anyone has any insight on this process it would be appreciated!
