    pretty much just says that they've received your application and that it is under review. Good Luck!

    Expect the process to take a few weeks. If you get impatient or havent heard anything call your CPAC ADvisor who is performing the hiring. But it does take time...

    just be patient and glad you didn't apply for an open continous list, thats when u apply but ur name/application goes on a big list. then when they need to fill, they start screening and calling/emailing. at least the job you applied for has an announcement number

    Default not always

    It doesn't always take a few weeks but it may also take many months. We put two new guys on last month that initially applies in November of last year. On the other extreme I just got a phone call yesterday for a new place and the call came about 48 hours after the announcement closed. It was so fast that the computer still hasn't even been updated to show that they havee my application. each base is different on how long they will take and even within the same base some announcements take longer to fill than others. If you don't hear anything in a few weeks then maybe wait a few more.

    Thanks for all the responces, I still havent heard anything back yet, but im keeping my fingers crossed. I have been through an interveiw and now have a test scheduled for a department up here in Alaska, so if offered that job I will end up taking it and keep trying for fed fire.
