    I'm in Japan now. My captain just called me in the middle of the night and said there is no reason to call you unless you made chief. I got the S.

    No matter when the results come out here’s some things to think about WHEN you get selected: Ensure your spouses accompany you to the Family Meet and Greet, there is a lot of good info and they should be paired up with a Chief’s wife so they have someone to ask questions when you aren’t coming home until 10pm every night; Instead of you all crowding around hitting F5 touch base with your Spouses or Significant others, see what you can take care of now before you are basically underway and out of pocket for 6 weeks; Know that no matter how you feel throughout the Season, know that everything is happening for a reason. Lord knows when I made it a couple of decades ago, I got my fair share of yelling and the whole time I remembered thinking “How is this helping me become a leader?” I wouldn’t understand it until 5 months after I was accepted into the Chiefs Mess and was pulled into the Captains office to get a “stern talking to” did I realize that they were doing that to preparing me for when I was the Chief and my only thought to the Captain was “wow this isn’t nearly as bad”. Put your whole heart into the Season and TRUST your Chiefs. Best of luck. -Grant CWO5 (ret)

    I got the S! After 5 tries, I finally made the cut. Thanks to everyone here who has shared conversations, support, and advice.

    Something I do want to mention. In years past, scuttlebutt was always welcome. Someone would come on, post their rumor and it would either be discussed or laid to rest as untrue. That is how I like this forum to run. Just like you are talking with your shipmates about the latest rumors, it's just discussed. Lately on this forum, when someone brings some scuttlebutt, another member will act like you are not supposed to post scuttlebutt by either putting them down or Pming them or whatever. That is not how it works on this forum and I'm going to actively step in when I see someone trying to be a snot. What ends up happening is that people stop posting! So word to the wise... I'll do the moderating. If you have a case about something not being true, don't give that person the third degree. Just point out why you think it's not correct and let the discussion takes its course. Otherwise - go elsewhere.

    Absolutely. I will say this that if you do get the S, have fun with the Season. It is a very short 6 weeks in the scheme of things and remember “humble” is the most important word you can start learning now. Although I’m sad to say it, with increased restrictions and guidelines to the Season over the years, I wouldn’t be surprised if in 5 - 10 years the process as a whole is dwindled down into a 2 or 3 week school you will have to attend and return to your Command as a Chief. I don’t say this to be that disgruntled old man who barks “back in my day” comments but to say again, cherish this time and respect the process. I’ll leave you with this. Talking with some old friends of mine that went the CMC route, they put it like this, “we can be pissed all we want to about the Navy taking away our pride and traditions, but at the end of the day they aren’t there anymore because we gave the Navy an excuse to do it.” Read back in the News headlines for the past decade of every liberty incident, training accident, etc. and you will find the reason why these traditions have faded. Glad to be here and while I have been retired a little while, mentoring Sailors isn’t a science it’s an art form. Policy and current guidance we also have a plethora of good knowledge in here. -Grant

    My command TRIAD met today as well as our Chiefs Mess and had their Initiation Safety brief and thinks Thursday to TRIAD will be the day.......on a side note my Senior Chief wanted me to let @Tony know I put maybe 2 hours of work in today and spent the rest refreshing this forum and telling him this my number one source..LOL

    Created an account today because I noticed a bunch of people asking for this guidance. Will be required reading for you getting the S next week. Best of Luck! Grant -CWO5 (ret)

    For those new members not familiar with the forum, you may want to take a peek at the guidelines. Each rule has an origin from something that happened on this website. Several people have already been booted today and all of them involved the unwritten rule of this forum. "Respect, and you shall be respected."

    What if (theoretically) various command's Chief's mess and CMCs are getting their rumors on either this week or next week results from here. That is probably why each command varies and no solid answer is coming out. And now that it is membership only, they are just as lost as we are. 🤔

    The year i made it (2013) i was at Nikki Rottens, which is a popular restaurant here in Coronado. The day the results came out, none of us could get on BOL since a billion people was all trying to get on as well. 2013 was the last year before they went to TRIAD release, so however you found out is how it was. So the entire FCPO Mess at my command (18 of us) decided to go to Nikki Rottens for lunch, then hopefully by the time we get back to the command, we can logon and see results. So we get to the restaurant and as soon as we order drinks and our meal's, my phone was the first to ring, it was my best friend telling me i made it as he was looking at the list. I was standing outside the restaurant on Orange Ave in uniform, crying my eyes out while on the phone, the first classes jumping all over me lol. People walking by thinking there was something wrong with me lol. I remember as i was standing there a couple of Chiefs that were going into the restaurant came walking up to me and the first thing they said was congrats. I remember looking at them confused like how did they know as i had never seen them before, one of them said there is only one reason a FCPO would be crying tears of joy at this time on this particular day in public LMAO. All in all there was four of us that got phone calls saying we that made it. It was super exciting cause we was all together, but at the same time trying not to be too excited to show respect to the ones that didn't make it that was sitting at the table with us. And what really made it tough was i carpooled to work that day with a first class that didn't make it. The whole way home i wanted to yell and scream and cry for joy, roll my window down and scream to the world i made Chief, but again i had to hold it in out of respect for him. Definitely a day i will never forget along with the day i got pinned.

    Number one factor for selection...….sustained superior performance...….how far above the Reporting Senior Cumulative Average (RSCA) was your Individual Trait Average (ITA) on your eval. You can see how well you stack up by going to BOL and clicking the ODC, OSR, PSR, ESR link. After you open that click on the evaluation summary (1996-Present). At the top left of your screen you will see a box that says generate PDF. Once you open the document it's going to create your performance summary report. Look at your last 5 years worth of evals. You want your Individual Summary (IND SUM) as far above the Reporting Senior Cumulative (R/S CUM) as possible. Remember the more people that you were ranked against in your group the better. This has always helped me know where I stand as far as being competitive. Now if you have a recent NJP or PFA failure those are detractors. But if your record is clean, consistently above RSCA, documented results in a leadership position, you will be competitive. One more thing...….pay close attention to your enlisted career path.

    I feel you! Same on my end and evals show command involvement, taking care of sailors etc. I’m frustrated that no one can tell me what I’m need to do. No offense to anyone in this category but I’m tired of seeing first time up or second get selected who have no leadership positions or who’s records can even come close to half of what I have done or have accomplished. Everyone says it just wasn’t your year. Well when is it going to be My year! Tired of doing everything everyone says you need to do to get selected only to not get selected and no guidance. I am happy for all who get selected but I am not doing this just because I enjoy being a FCPO! I want to move up and help contribute to the Mess and Navy as I know I can. Since Chief seems to be escaping me I will try my luck with an OCS application and go the Officer path. I’m tired of being stuck as an E-6 after 8 years. Half my time in the Navy I have been an E-6 and it’s time to move up. And since no one can give me any direction other than keep doing what your doing, I will do it my way. It’s apparent that doing what I am doing is not working because I have not been selected yet. Every Chief through Master Chief who has looked my record over is at a loss which tells me there is more that goes on at the board than they want to tell us. Stepping off my soap box now!

    You still have to keep in mind that everyone processes it differently. I personally take a little time to process and would not want to hold anyone back from celebrating. This also doesn't mean I am not happy for them. I personally don't like to process my disappointment while trying to congratulate some else. I think it comes off as fake.

    - Alrighty then, I was hoping that this would be a non-eventful day but it was not. However, the issue with the server is about done. - As a reminder, @KnockoutTrish is available to help spouses and she has the knowledge and experience. - An individual, who claims he is a Chief, came on this forum and tried to cause problems for reasons unknown. It probably would have taken longer to get the connection if it wasn't for the strange name of the city that his IP is connected to. I've saved his info in case he tries something for the third time. - Someone came on this forum and was insistent that the results were going to fall on a certain date. When it appeared that it was changing, that individual edited his posts to reflect the change. Folks, don't come on the forum and insist that you are the one in the know. When I get some good gouge, I do a little vetting - one post from a newbie is not going to make me change what I put out. Just remember that all scuttlebutt is welcome but leave a little room for error; don't be so gosh darn insistent. Otherwise, we have done very good in the past with the dates. - We are looking at the 7th, 8th, timeframe for results. Thanks to TM1/SS for the early heads up, I think the 27th of Jul.

    There are certain terms and phrases used on evaluations that if you see you should question and immediately request a CMC CDB. Anything that alludes to the future will be looked at as if you are not ready now. These are the leadership that works directly with you and the board has to take their word seriously. Every word in your eval should be engrained in the now or past Meaning you are already a “Chief” just not in uniform. If you are briefed a questionable phrase or wording sign your eval and request an immediate CDB with the CMC included to see why that wording was chosen and if it can be changed before they are sent up. I run run in to a lot of Sailors you are “checking” all of the blocks and are confused on why they are not selected and when I see the evals I can clearly see: Will one day make a great Chief Chief in training My future front runner Any phrase that is not in the now is potentially negative.

    You don’t have any more control over the outcome than he does and it is a spouse’s job to be supportive. It’s natural for everyone to get their hopes up. Last cycle, about 5 master chiefs reviewed my package and every single one of them had sat boards before and every single one of them said it was one of the best they’d ever seen. Well, I’m here now. Talk about getting hopes up. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Just be there for your spouse. In case it’s not an S, just be there. Don’t talk, don’t console, just be present and listen. Especially in the first few days, don’t fall into the overly optimistic spiral. Not getting selected is almost a type of loss. They need time to grieve what might have been before they can accept it and move forward. All you have to do is be present. That will be enough. Best of luck!
