Thank you for the info and yes, it helped.

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the schedules. But I would imagine that there's at least 1 week between the received invitation and the PA.

Btw, how long did you need to wait for the result of the written test?

Hi!
For me it was about 10 days between the written test and the interview.

Okay, thanks. It has been over 20 days for me and I haven't heard anything so, I guess that's it.

I wouldn't say so..My understanding is that everybody have a different procedure. For some people it just takes more time. I guess you can always send them an email and ask them about it, just to be sure.
I'm planning to do the same thing.

I hope you are right because I'm sure they will not inform automatically the applicants who failed the written test. As well I hope they will answer for you about the PA assessment.

Exclamation Re: Frontex Border Guard

Good evening to you all from Greece guys . PLEASE READ THIS
I think I might have really important infomation for everyone who has recently joined SC , those who are waiting for the call and those like I was some hours ago who wait for the next recruitement in the future . So , after have read hundred messages here ,after done so much research on internet I still had some questions unanswered , so I decided to email Frontex about
1) Duration and frequency of each deployment
2) exact salaries for each level of SC that are paid in WARSAW
3) Duration of expatriation allowance ( 5 or 10 years ? )
4) what happens after 5+5 years of serving
5) and when new vacancies for SC are going to open
These are the exact messages : (for disbelivers , if any , I can send everything directly to their email )Dear Sir or Madam ,

Hello from sunny Greece . I'm a Greek police officer and I'm really interested for standing corps vacancies in the future . But no matter how much research I have made in forums and reading all of public distributed documents of Frontex , I still have some questions unanswered . As you understand , joining Standing Corps is a life changing decision for me and for many more people , beacause I will have to leave Greek police carrer with what that entails . Also my will to create family in the near future will be a catalyst in my decision . That’s why I first of all have to learn much more details about what its like to be in Standing Corps and how my life will look like in the future . So here are my 5 questions for you :
  •  
    • Deployment duration and frequency around the year (approximately) ?
    • How much (approximately) will the payable salary be in Warsaw for all 3 grades ( basic , intermediate and advanced) for someone like me who is single , has 15 years law enforcement exprerience , speaks Greek as native language , English C2 level , French B2 level ?
    • What happens after 5+5 years in Standing Corps ? Do I get an infinite contract or I get dismissed no matter what and be entitled of unemployment allowance for 36 months ? Let's say I retire after 10 years of service and I'm 45 years old . I have to wait at least to become 58 to get my reduced pension and how much (approximately) will that be ? I suppose the pension will be given to me until my death , right ?
    • Expatriation allowance will apply for all 10 years of service in SC ?
    • Will there be a new vacancy for Standing Corps in 2022 - 2023 ?
Please , I kindly request you to be as detailed as possible in your answers . I will definitely inform as many people as possible so you don’t get the same and the same questions again .

Thank you in advance for your valuable time ,


Dear Mr ............

Thank you for your email and interest in Frontex.


Please note that different rules are applied to the 3 different levels of the standings corps including the salary range and benefits.

The duration of the deployment and frequency depends on the operational needs but you should estimate approximately 9 months to 1 year per deployment. The contracts we offer are for 5 years subject to renewal for 5 more years with the allowances applied throughout the duration of the contracts. The contract cannot be renewed for a second time though past the 10 years.

Also note that there will be no new vacancies published for the standing corps until the end of 2023.

With regards to the rest of your questions, as they require more information we would be happy to reply to you once you are going through your onboarding at Frontex.

Kind regards

Regarding myself , theres no chance in applying for SC . First of all , the time of deployment doesnt give you any possibility of creating a family or even maintainig an existing one . Only this is enough for me not to apply . Also as you can see , they avoided to answer even with a few words about actuall payment in warsaw , what happens after 5+5 years ( are you entitled of unemployment allowance ? , if youre 45 years old you have to wait at least for becoming 58 to get a pension ? ) .
No intention to discourage anyone to apply !! I was dissapointed as also but I think its really important before taking a lifechanging decision to put everything down .

I hope the best for everyone

Good luck to all,
