  • You must be prepared to move with NCIS. If you are not ready to move don’t waste your time and immediately stop your application process. Most agencies make applicants sign a mobility agreement few actually enforce it, NCIS does.

    I wouldn’t put to much thought into the initial locations you are selected for with the USA jobs app. It’s about where they need warm bodies. Also they have a tendency to call bs on your willingness to move with your initial duty assignment being a considerable distance from where you are now. As we all know, people say they will do anything for an 1811 job during the panel interview, but those same people suddenly change their mind 2-3 months later. People on the east coast sometimes get offered the west coast and vice versa.

    The location thing can be a killer for some people and that’s understandable. You have to do what’s right for you and your family. That being said NCIS does offer you the ability to live around the world in some amazing locations, change disciplines every few years when you get bored, and there are some great people in the outfit. For a certain type of person it’s a great gig.

      I’m prior military so moving a lot is nothing new to me and besides being mobile is a part of the job description. I was just curious to know what was the purpose of getting referred to different offices if you still have to sign a mobility agreement.. I’m sure they’ll explain that further in the process

      No problem, it’s cool. Just wanted to illustrate the mobility part of the agency. If you are former military you get it. Best of luck with the process.

      No I appreciate it, just confused about why do they refer you to different offices. Like suppose someone only selects one location and that office doesn’t pick him up verses someone that selects 30 and all 30 gives him the green light. What happens to them far as locations.. it’s no big deal just curious

      There is a lot of confusion about that part of the application. Word is they are just placing guys where they need them regardless of the location part of usajobs. But who knows.

  • I'm in Montana, so it's a move anywhere... We don't have too many Naval stations out here.

        LEO172, I think something happened the other day where they released a bunch of pending polys or something, quite a few people have been saying they were contacted to start the BI. I have been contacted by an NCIS agent.

    • lol... why is this process sooo slow.? ( Iknow I know, pipe down young 2018 applicant).

          Thank you! To be fair, they were shepherding along a group and I was a straggler because I was graduating a little later than others. I guess I'll just keep working out and checking my email...

      • Reading previous posts, most new hires report to their field offices a few weeks prior to reporting to FLETC for CITP. Does anyone know what happens to new hires who are current / former 1811's and already completed CITP? Do they report to the field office the same time as everyone else, wait months while everyone else is in CITP, before they report to FLETC for SABTP? Or do they report to the field office a few weeks before SABTP? I tried to ask HR but they did not respond to my question.

        • I have seen a previous 1811 sit around for 3 months at his field office prior to SABTP. He helped with admin stuff prior to reporting to FLETC. Who knows if they will do that with you though, no way to predict what HR will do.

            Thanks for the info, that's helpful to know.

        • If the agency emailed us a request to fill out background release forms and etc. Is it safe to assume that we’ll at least get a chance to interview?

            I would say so. Make sure all of your paperwork is on point and organized. Have a suit ready to go. I had about three days to get ready for my interview.

        • Anybody in the background investigation phase of the process (cleared polygraph) been contacted by a background investigator? I was notified that I cleared quality control for the polygraph a couple of days ago, and was wondering how long it would take before a background investigator contacted me, and also when I would be scheduled for a physical.

            Anyone know how long it takes between the background forms and the next step?

              Who contacted you? Should've gotten that info from them, we're you contacted by an agent?

                I emailed the staffing specialist about an update on my polygraph results. She onl replied that I cleared quality control and that I was in the background investigation phase

            • Physical this week, BI is talking with people. Hopefully that wrap everything up soon. Any ideas after everything is complete, how long it will take to get an offer? I heard they give you about 2 months notice before an academy date. Any incite?

                Congrats LEO172!!
                To be honest, I can't give you time span from finishing med and BI to offer, as I honestly don't know when my BI finished. But about a month after urinalysis is when I got the "conditional offer". Then when you accept that "conditional offer" it took me 2 weeks for final offer. (Final offer still had conditions lol <pass FLETC, get the clearance etc.>) In this final offer, they tell you where they will send you with actual gl7 pay for that area. For me I had no option to pick from few options (some people did(?))

                I did get 1-2 months from the offer till I report to the office. Spend 2 weeks at the office, then FLETC. Then back to the office is the plan.
                Some people go earlier. Some people spend weeks, months at their office. (Prior Fed, no CITP needed etc)

                Best advice I can give you after the medical is to forget about it. Stop thinking about the NCIS, and one day they will call you.
                Congrats!!

                  Just got at email around 0945 today with a COE. Said the panel interview would take place between May 14th and July 13th. It again stated if anyone is no longer interested or will not take a GL-07 they should contact them by COB May 2nd to be taken out of the process.

                  Weird that it says action required, but you don't need to do anything unless you are requesting to be withdrawn due to not wanted GL-07.

                  I spoke too soon, I actually just received a COE this morning (after my previous post obviously). Good luck to everyone!

              • Any idea where interviews are normally held?

                  Closest field office to you, likely a larger one.
