    I purposely try not to give out information about myself for privacy sakes. That's why you probably noticed I don't give out where I work...because if management found out, I could possibly get in trouble. I've mentioned this a couple times in this thread that I'm still not 100% sure we're allowed to discuss how a federal agency works on a public forum. We are however a public service, so there's really nothing about us that's kept secret to the public. Sooooo....better safe than sorry :D
     
    Shaximat and LTL2PO Thank this.

    Yes, that is true. I've heard people say we are "civil service" employees not federal employees.
     
    Shaximat and Sho Nuff Thank this.

    If that's true, can you transfer your time to MTA or DSNY?

    No you can not. State and federal are separate. State tends to have a pension plan whereas federal has FERS. If the state has a 401k plan you can transfer that into your TSP. So time vested in either one cannot transfer over. You can however transfer over to any other federal agency as long as you are qualified. Your years of service carries over into FERS, but not your seniority.

    Most likely if you went from state to federal and vice versa, you'll have both state pension and federal FERS for your retirement.

    I got called in for an interview today. However, its not full-time! HR on the phone said everyone comes in part-time first. Coulda sworn ad said full-time but now that I'm thinking about it, I think it said something about 'career appointment' or something to that effect. It still has benefits and I can participate in the retirement program. How long did you guys do part-time first?

    Apparently, you will become full time after all the other PTF(Part-Time-Flexible) employees in front of you (seniority) have become full time. For example, if there are 10 PTFs in front of you, you have to wait until all of them become FTR(Full-Time-Regular). Hope this helps. @Sho Nuff can correct me if I'm mistaken.
     
    Sho Nuff Thanks this.

    ######. So is that the normal thing then? They bring people in part time first? How long were you part time before you made full time?
