      I'm in the housing unit for my departmnet, and Sometimes we work closely with the HUD agent in our area (Central Pa). From talking to the guy, he seems to like it. I think he's about a GS11 and has full authority over a region of more than 3 states. He does alot of welfare fraud investigations, HUD employee violations and just about everything else you can imagine. Realize that if there is a crime in a HUD property, the agent can get involved in the investigation up to and including the door kicking and arrest.

      The guy I talk to has a wide area to cover, and travels ALOT. Also keep in mind, like any police/detective/agent job, there is a ton of paperwork, court and less exciting investigations involved.

      Good luck

        USA Jobs has posted several openings for HUD Special Agent Jobs and I was basically looking to see if anyone had input on these jobs. From what I have heard, some of the agents in the midwest can actually work from home a day or two a week and really enjoy what they do.

        Thanks for the responses.....

          My aquaintance indicated they only go to the field office 1-2 days per week. Most work is in the field or from home. I'm sure they travel, but I'm not aware of any significant travel by this person. They seem to love their job and had mentioned a majority of the work is now with mortgage fraud, but as Champ mentioned, they can get involved in any activities that happen on HUD property.

            Just wanted to wish everyone who applied for a HUD-OIG position good luck. I put in my application for the NY Area last month. Everyone I know at OIG (for various federal agencies) likes their job.

              Right now, in our current economic situation in the U.S., count on working a lot of mortgage fraud cases with HUD-OIG. Working a joint case like this with HUD-OIG, and they can be pretty complicated.

                The HUD OIG journey at GS 13. Travel and work vary by region though the emphasis right now is on mortgage fraud. They can nexus a lot but the depends on what your ASAC wants you to do. Most OIG seem VERY happy.

                  Does anyone have any info on the fitness and written test? Alternatively, does anyone know of any prep guides for the same (perhaps have the links)?

                            I believe there were other areas open but I also applied to NY. Best of luck to you Mikey. See you in the field.
