    I enjoyed being told that I didn't have to complete the BA again since I passed last year, but then being forced to take the BA again.
     
  5. yup

    yup Chow Runner

    It was one of the "how would coworkers describe you?" questions and all of the answers were words starting with P.

    Hi, I have a question, If I passed the BA last year, do I have to take it again?
    Thank You!

    No, the issue was suppose to be resolved as some were being directed to take it again last week. If you haven't applied yet, you really only have tomorrow morning to contact Aviation Careers to get it sorted out.

    Good, I wasn't required to take it again, just making sure because I saw some people were asked to retake it.

    There was 11,716 applications received. 5,383 met initial basic qualifications and will be reviewed by HR.

    That seems pretty low for one of these bids. Wasn't there 28k or so on the first bid with the Bio Q? With only 2k passing that?
     
  13. yup

    yup Chow Runner

    "initial basic qualifications" ==> Experience and BA, or just experience (less than the 5.3k passed the BA)?

    Given that they haven't notified anyone or changed the application status yet, based on previous panels I would guess the 5,383 is a combination of all of Pool 1 and the applicants in Pool 2 that did not have to retake the BA. Still surprised of the low number, but that's great for those who have been trying to get hired for years. It certainly could be a combination of all of Pool 1 and all of the people that passed the BA in Pool 2 and notifications will go out shortly. Either way, if only 5,383 people are moving forward to the AT-SA portion, it's roughly half of what last year's panel had.

    My wife got an email today from charlene sade, FAA hr, asking for her college transcripts because they didn't make it from usajobs evidently. So they are verifying claimed qualifications now.

    Hm. I wonder if I should or shouldn't be concerned that I didn't get an email (though they wouldn't get through all applicants in one day, of course). Did it sound like a problem with your wife's application specifically or more systemic?

    If you are using education as your qualifying method at some point in time you will have to get them a copy of your official transcripts if you are selected to move forward. It is not a problem with anyone's application they are simply beginning the process of verifying who meets the qualifications to move on.
     
  19. How would you know if you even passed the BA? I applied via the combination of education + work experience (112 college semester hours + 5 years military).. not sure if I should be concerned or not because I haven't received any emails yet. On AVIATOR it says submitted and on USAJOBS it says received. Any guidance?

    Time, you'll eventually move on the the next portion or be removed from consideration. It was roughly two months after the application window closed that people were notified last year.
