Well, i think that its not exactly a question of when the qualification time will be increased. Its not that simple, and i can't say that i fully understand all the details...
 
If you look at the popa site(www.popa.org) they have a link to the "Agency" proposals for the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. If it goes through as is, then the q-time would be 3 years:

Well I just verbally accepted a job with the mechanical group.  I have a start date of Sept. 19th.  I think all of the advice on this forum has been great.  I originally applied back in March.  I was contacted in August, had one phone interview and just got an offer.  No sign on bonus or relocation, so I have to pay for the move out of pocket.  Does anyone have any further advice on where to live?  I have a dog and I am having trouble scouting places.  I guess Ill have to make a trip up to DC over Labor Day.   Thanks again for all of the info on this site.

I reviewed a few months of posting in this thread.
 
For those of you with any special knowledge about the USPTO hiring procedures:  
 
1) Is there a new hiring process/department/team at the USPTO?
 
2) What does it feel like to have a panel interview?
 
3) If you had a panel interview in the past, and got job offer, what was your background and how substantial was it (eg. Masters Deg. with 4 years industry exp) etc..?
 
4) Do you feel it is easy to get a USPTO job?
 
5) How important is contact networking at the USPTO?
 
6) Is there any advice you have for an individual getting ready for an interview?
 
7) What some things to avoid during a USPTO interview?
 
Cool Do you have any general advice not mentioned in the past months of posts to this thread?
 
Thank you for sharing your time, wisdom, and opinions with me.
 
Yours Yours Truly,
Marc Miller

I think you're WAY, WAY, WAY too overzealous to even THINK about applying at the USPTO.

Please, I am very interested in learning as much as I can before arriving to my interview. (i.e. I really want the job and sombody out there has to have the inside scoop.) Any specific advice would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank You Again,
