USAJobs Process/ Tentative Offer for on-post Army Hospital?

Posted

Hey,

I’m a military spouse and have been applying to the army hospital on post here since October. Finally got an interview last week and a tentative offer yesterday. Went on and completed all the required paperwork so far, does anyone else have any recent experience with what the rest of the timeline will look like for a military hospital? (I understand this can be quite different from the VA process.) This is just for an intermittent position, but I’m 5 months pregnant (I did disclose my pregnancy during the interview) so I’m a bit worried about this potentially taking a few more months and then trying to complete the full orientation. Any information would be really helpful!

Its the govt so it can take 3-5 months. Yes I am serious.

If you got a tentative offer it shouldn't take 3-5 months though. You should have gotten a contact number when you received the tentative offer, since you turned in the additional paperwork I would call them.

The government system can take up to 6 months to get you in once you received a tentative offer.

It took me 4 months to get hired as a civilian RN in the same ER where I had been an Army RN for four years. So yes, it can take a while!

Painfully slow! Civilian RN in the OR and it took me 3 months. That was before Covid! Good luck, it’s worth the wait!

By your older post it looks like you left the Fort Stewart/Hunter AAF. Where did you PCS to? Enjoyed my time at WACH at Stewart.

@Jeckrn1 at Bragg now. Definitely miss Savannah...

Where at Womack, I work in the OR there.

@Jeckrn1 oh no way! My TO is for the float pool, think I’m waiting on the background checks now. Hopefully not much longer!
