It’s going to vary a lot by agency, and even by office within an agency. I received an offer from one agency the day of the interview, and another took five MONTHS. The day-of offer was for an excepted position, and my other excepted interviews had very fast turnarounds. But it varies.

Long. But really, in terms of what? Applying to interview, interview to offer, acceptance to on boarding?

That’s far from unusual, Associate 1. Real talk: I’m happy as a federal employee and I’m committed to serving my country, but working in government is… NOT like the private sector.

I would guess about 2 months. I’ve been through two fed hiring processes but they were not conventional so my numbers might be off. (First time through job fair, second time they wanted me to apply for a particular role so there was no interview)

I’m a late 40’s, 3rd year Partner in Big4 who joined as a DEMD after 2 decades in industry. I’m weighing an offer to join another Firm - it’s a straight comp play for 30% higher Comp for a similar role. I realize that the BS is mostly the same at all B4, so I don’t think for a second the grass is greener. But the comp is nice, and I’m not vested enough to lose much money. Did anyone here make a similar jump to another Firm, and in the end, was it a genius move, or did you come to regret it?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
