FY17 Chief Selection Board

Rate this topic

2,972 posts in this topic

I think it is important to provide the feedback I received from a Master Chief who sat the last board to which I was not selected. After the umpteenth time being a nonselect I reached out the board members with the hopes that I was just missing some minor detail. Unfortunately I missed everything and was basically told that I will most likely retire as a first. My record never hit the tank...

 

I would talk to another MC who sat the board, I think that one overstated things.  If you have another look you have two choices you can be bitter that the selection process doesn't fit your career path or you can do the EPME and JPME courses, get the MOVSM if you already have the hours, finish up your degree and you will have those boxes checked.  If you refuse to play the game at all you can only blame yourself.  The board is supposed to select the best documented Sailors.  If you don't have the paperwork to back-up your record you won't get selected.

 

Recruiting duty has fallen on the totem pole.  From what I've heard it was once looked at equivilant to sea duty, but that was almost 10 years ago.  I have a hard time believing that the board ingnored the precepts though.

I just want to start out by saying I was up for Chief 4 times before I got the "H". I was pretty unfamiliar with the advancement being on hold ordeal, but now since I've been through it, I will gladly pass on, or walk anyone through it. I was able to get my advancement released and will be getting pinned on the 16th. I have been apart of this forum for years now and want to continue to help out where I can. Good luck to everyone on the upcoming exam!

I will be reporting to my new command in about a month and since evals are basically due when I get there would it be better for me to receive a NOB or an actual ranked eval? I have heard that I would be best to just receive a ranked eval this way I can show progress but I don't want it to completely squash any chance I have of advancing this time up. In my entire navy career I've always been a top MP or a top EP coming off my last 2 cycles and understanding with only a few weeks at a new command I will receive a promotable. So any advice will be appreciated so I know when I end up turning in my eval write up.

On the board a promotable is better than a NOB.  Promotable is worth some points and a NOB is worth zero.

I've done the basic and primary PMEs as well as the SNCO & SEJPME, what is the correct way to have those added to my training education and qualifications? Right now the basic, primary and SNCO PMEs are mixed in with all my other NKOs. Is that the correct spot or should in the navy schools/military training courses?

I challenge all those CPO Selects, dont be shy.  Sure, over the next six weeks you will be busy as all hell but COME BACK when youre done, pay it forward and help out your shipmates AND CONTINUE TO TRAIN YOUR RELIEFS AS NEW CPO's.

 

I made it this year after 7 tries.  Don't give up and keep taking care of your Sailors!  I hope everyone is studying and I wish you luck on the upcoming exam!!

Did not get the S.  Congrats to all those who got it.  Was wondering if any of the selectees are willing to share their eval write-ups with me.

shoot me an email dustenabell@gmail.com

I'll shoot you my write ups for the last 5 years.

I'll give everyone the same advice I gave my First Classes when they asked how I made it so fast. IF YOU WANT TO BE A CHIEF START ACTING LIKE A CHIEF. I said it in the FY16 forum and I will say it again here. While things like JPME, PPME, SOY, SOQ, etc. are good "that-a-boys", they don't prove that you are a good leader. I caught a lot of flak last year when I said "at the end of the day PPME and JPME are nothing but a glorified NKO". I am in no way saying they aren't important, all I am saying is change up your mindset. Every MCPO/CMC/Board Member out there knows the answers to the PPME are flying around each command. In my opinion if you are submitting a LTB with PPME/JPME/BPME/etc. but your strongest eval bullet is you were a "really good operator/technician/cook/etc." you need to rethink your strategy because there is still time. The Navy needs Chief's that are proven leaders on the deckplates promoting sailorization, not E7's who can click through an NKO course and send out taskers through emails. As stated SSP is the PRIMARY means of selection. Some think it is primarily about the EP, but I am certain there are a few of my fellow Chiefs who were "promotable" sailors, but took care of their people and had very strong eval write-ups. I do not, in any way shape or form, mean this to be negative so please do not take it that way. I am really not trying to be arrogant or "holier-than-thou", I just want to see those that are taking every measure possible get that "S" in a little less than a year.

-OSC

I thought I posted this, but didn't. 

 

I could not agree more.  I have none of the PPME/JPME done.  What I have is year after year of evals stating I take care of m sailors, I acted in the capacity of a chief and that I was ready to be one.  And FWIW I made chief just 4 years after an NJP.

Well, test time is fast approaching....  Hope everyone out there has been hitting the books.  9th time up for me, after this year I have two more looks.  I ended up with the #2 of 74 eval this year and Instructor of the year...  Hopefully my number is finally called.  Best of luck to everyone taking the test in a couple of weeks!

Well after walking out of the test I feel that I need to start studying for next January.  This is my 7th time up, and next year is my last chance since in 2018 I retire around the same time the board convenes.

I felt great right after the examination and can't wait to see the results. I managed to remember 145 questions from the HMC exam I took and this past weekend I went over those questions and verified. I am excited because 90% I put were correct. Good luck to all of my fellow First Classes out there!!!

if i am missing an EVAL from march 16 2010 thru sep 26 2010 on my BUPERS report but its over 5 years old, will it be a problem for me on this upcoming board?

As already stated this is a major red flag. Your record is your responsibility. And if this hasn't been corrected in 6 years, what impression are you making to the board? This is a lesson to everyone, STAY ON TOP OF ADMIN. I had an eval discrepancy. Notified my YNC and cc'd my entire CoC. Got  the problem fixed before the board. Same goes for awards. If you got a NCM in 2008 that's still not in your OMPF, you end up looking like you don't care, so why should they.

They are so diverse (international) and wishy washy I can't see it happening. And as soon as the company says they were implementing this and that change to improve things, half of them forget the seriousness of the situation and start kissing the companies butt.

First off, congrats to those who were selected today. Saw a lot of "S" on here so well done!!!!

 

Sadly, looking like an N this time around. 

 

Please dispel this if I am wrong, but I have heard from several people that an IT going to an aircraft squadron essentially rules out making Chief. Maybe it is not viewed as difficult duty because NMCI manages the network, but I beg to differ as our division averages 10-12 hours a day working handling AIS and EKMS issues for the command with limited manpower. Honestly, dont know, and since we do not get the official reason as to why we are not selected from the board, I will never know. My goal was (and STILL is) to prove to my guys that working hard, taking on the extra duties, going to school, can pay off, no matter what platform you are at.

Probably what my problem has been!
