You can start at step 1 or step 10 it depends. For example, If you had a Ph.D. and were straight out of school then you would start at GS 11/1 but if you were making more than the starting rate you would start at GS 11/10. It really varies. You should tell them what you were making at your previous job and they will put you in that pay grade or higher. Usually a little higher.

How much does being a veteran help with getting hired?  I know it's a factor but how much of one?
thanks

I have never heard of a veteran getting preference. Why would a veteran get preference over someone else more qualified?

I was wondering about the style of the interview at the USPTO.  Do you sit with a group of pepole from a particular Art Unit or workgroup?  What style of questions do they ask?

Is this thread still active? Or are people less interested in working for the USPTO now?
