  • FBI Investigative Specialist

    Hi,

    I applied for the FBI's Investigative Specialist position a few months ago when the listing came out in July. Yesterday, I got a call asking if I wanted to come into an interview.

    What do these guys actually do? I saw the little blurb about them on the website, and it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. I tried to find the job description, but it's been pulled since the listing has closed.

    Anybody else get calls for this gig? Is it a good job? It's a GS7-9, so the pay isn't horrible, but probably could be better if they basically do a lot of surveillance work.

          Anybody else out there still in the running for this job? I've completed the interviews, polygraph, medical, and currently have a background investigator assigned to me. Just looking to see if there is anyone else out there.

            sounds like an interesting gig from what I have read. Anyone know how often they hire for these positions?

              They had an opening back in July, which is what I applied for. So far the FBI has been very quick, for the government at least, in processing me and I'm hoping to get hired sometime very soon. Anyone know of any dates for the training classes for this position?

                    Anyone have an update to this? I have an upcoming interview. Not sure how similar the process is for Support Positions when compared to SA positions.

                      Update in terms of what the job is about, or strictly about the hiring process?

                        more so hiring process. The job from what I've read is pretty straight forward, demanding and annoying at times. I think the new director my be inclined to make some changes for the 1801 folks if the funding works out.

                        I've heard that if they are doing a quick hire... the medical, poly etc are all done pretty quick. But if its the standard process.. I'd assume its a marathon.

                          Hello all,

                          I am scheduled to take a language test in couple weeks for the position of Special Agent. Anybody has taken the test before that can tell me how it is? I appreciate any feedback and wish me luck.

                            Try searching on federalsoup.com. I know I saw some threads over there with info on the language test. From what I remember reading, the conversation portion is pretty tough. Be ready to talk about current events in whatever language you are testing for.

                              I have been checking the Federal Soup but the posts are from at least 5 years ago. Why the conversation portion is very tough if you are a native speaker?
