I was recently "referred" to Tinker in a position as a GS-15. The job is basically the maintenance head for the base. I've got the qualifications to fill the job.
Some of you guys know I have had surgeries - shoulders, knees, etc - classifying me as disabled. That referral was as a "disabled applicant".
As yet I haven't heard anything from Tinker or the AFPC. I am beginning to think the "referral" was for statistical purposes, using me to fill a "quota" in showing an effort to hire disabled employees.
I'm not hurting financially and getting along fairly well not working. But I'd rather be on a job doing something substantial. The question to you guys is, would you be aggravated if not interviewed for the job after being referred considering the above circumstances?
Or do you think I am a whinerrrrrrrrrr?

Maybe I am a whinerrrrrr!!! I just found out a big turnover is going on a Tinker. Lots of the big brass are supposedly moving on. MG Gabreski was promoted to a 3 star, going to Wright-Pat, and the executive director of the base may also be moving on.
With that kind of transition going on, they may not make a decision until November or so!

Good advice. Obviously I am a little anxious! I've been around ARNG and ANG so I should know they ain't necessarily the quickest to make a decision.
But meanwhile....wwwwwwwwhhhhhhhhhyyyyyy do I have to waittttttttttttttt!!!

I work for a civilian contractor at Tinker & all I can say is I've never seen anything move as slow, anywhere. I had a $40K pice of eguipment down for nearly six months over $10 worth of parts I could've bought over the counter downtown. Yeah, I'm a whiner too.

But, but, but......Tinker is a model of government efficiency.

Dad works down there and has for the last 20 years.
I've heard all about the drag assed hiring process.

But to hear him talk, everyone else down there is 'disabled' too

ironoxbows, I can't run or climb, and I ain't dead. When I worked for the ANRG, I could have been and they wouldn't have known the difference. Some of the people working there must have been because I never saw them.
One notification I got from Tinker about an interview was a phone message that went something like this:
"This is so-and-so at Tinker AFB. We are trying to schedule interviews for the position of XXXXXX.
If I don't hear from you by 4:30 this afternoon, I will assume you are no longer interested in the job." That is almost verbatim what was left on my answering machine around 1:30 with NO NUMBER to call back.
So I guess you guys will just have to put up with my whinnnnnniinnnnng until I get the job!
Rat, your just like your Dad, good at stirring up stuff! I've still got a complex from him whupping up on me about money!

Hey Dan when you get hired are you gonna need a lead electrician?

Ark, having dealt with MANY governement agencies, I'd almost bet that job was filled before they advertised it. They have to put up a show of accepting applicatons for EEOC reasons.
For gimped up old peckerwoods like me, they have a Council on Disability Concerns at the Federal Executive Board (all the head honchos of Fed agencies meet together) here in Oklahoma City.
When I contacted them, I found out it is inactive - inotherwords no one bothers going to the meetings! Under "noncompetitive appointment eligibility", I have the right to contact the hiring agents. Well, they damn sure ain' t gonna tell me who they are! Wonder why?
Do I want the job? Hell, yeah! Realistically, I'd say my chances are pretty slim though.
The hiring procedure through the Civil Service is something to behold.

well D, hope you get the job, I just took a new job friday, didn't even apply for this job, they just called me outta the blue, offered me more pay, better benifits, and then something funny happened, I got sent back to work in the casino, even though I'm no longer employed by the casino, I'll be still working there for the tribe, and they won't let me carry my gun with me, so now I'm going to be around a bunch of disorderly people I've had to throw out before, and I'll be unarmed, I'll have to resort to using my good looks or fist and feet when one of them recognizes me, I may look like this smilie next time ya'll see me, and I won't be able to go out in the parking lot and catch naked women or lesbians pissing, but on the plus side, now maybe I can see the infamous ghost tape and all the other good ones I know their hiding and I'll get to have a smoke anytime I feel like one.
