DOE Incompetence Strikes Again.
As the week ends the DOE was supposed to give the over 1,000 ATRs their end of year rating. According to the DOE the rating would be available during the week of June 12-16 in their DOE email. However, it wasn't until the afternoon of the 16th did the ATRs actually receive the DOE email to log into for their rating. However, there was a snag, when the ATRs put in their user id and password an error code came up. Despite numerous calls and complaints, the incompetents at the DOE failed to fix the error.
Of course, the DOE, later on, claimed that the bug will be resolved on Monday and maybe it will be but one would think that they would have tested the program and resolved any problems before sending out the flawed version that simply frustrates the ATRs who would very much like to be treated like every other professional in the system. Then again, it's simply another example of the DOE treating ATRs as second class citizens and their is no consequences for their alleged incompetence.
Note: Error bug was fixed late Saturday however, your final rating sheet can only be accessed by disabling your ad-blocker and using the Chrome browser, it still does not work on the Mozilla Firefox browser.
