    The one I heard back on was 2 weeks ago. The others I'm waiting on were 1 week ago and a week and a half ago. The one a week and a half ago they said I was their last interview. So IDK.

    Oh well you have some time then, the government kind of runs on their own time schedule and it takes forever to find out. You still have time yet I think.

    This site was extremely helpful to me. I took a lot of time and prepared answers to many of the questions so I could use the time as effectively as possible. I took my questions and answers in with me. You may not prepare an answer to a question you are asked ahead of time but you will have a good sense of what might be asked by looking over that site and the 50 or 100 questions listed. Also, take your own questions and ask them. Good luck.

    Update: so far the process has moved along pretty fast. I've completed my vetpro, equip, fingerprints, physical, and submitted a ton of info to the professional standards board. Now I just wait.

    Interviewed almost 3 weeks ago, still waiting to hear back. I realize that this not necessarily a long wait, but perhaps there is a delay due to issues surrounding a potential government shutdown.

    Ive also been worried about how a possible government shut down may affect our applications and start dates. I hope it doesn't cause delays or even worse prevent us from being hired. Although my process has been moving along smoothly with no hint of any impending problems. They said I should have my final offer within the next two weeks. Don't worry about not hearing back for 3 weeks it took me a whole month to get my tentative offer after my interview. Good luck to you.

    I'm not sure about in the hiring process, but the VA has advanced appropriations so there won't be much of a reduction.

    Hello there!

    I have a scheduled phone panel interview for next week... This is my first time interviewing with the VA and I have no idea what to expect. How did it go? What tips or advice can you give?

    Look at the problem-based interviewing material on the VA website. Many of the questions I was asked were in this format and preparing ahead of time was very helpful.
