          Applied here (LA area). Im currently a background investigator doing OPM work.

          From what I gather Surveillance Specialists conduct fixed surveillance on targets suspected of compromising national security. Investigative Specialists who are a part of the Special Surveillance Group (SSG) go mobile with their targets. I assume theres more to both positions, but Im sure all that is classified.

          I'm not sure if Surveillance Specialists are considered part of SSG or not.

              Surveillance Specialists are not part of SSG...they are in a different division all together. Surveillance Specialists sit in a fixed location and watch people of interest enter and exit buildings of interest. That about sums it up.

                Sorry I worded my question wrong. I meant if anyone knows things like what shifts you typically work, the job environment, and the daily routines these people go through...

                  i applied for this vacancy in 2008 right out of college....got called for an interview in NY and didn't do well. they encouraged me to apply to the next year's announcement but there wasn't one in 2009 and i wasn't called in 2010. i heard this job can be very boring but i would shovel **** to get my foot in the door with the FBI

                    In reality, Surveillance with the FBI is a 24 hour a day job. You may have a regular shift you work a good portion of the time, but I guarantee you that you will work all hours of the day and night at some point. You will not be working in an office and most of the time you will be working alone (sometimes with one other person). Much of the daily routines I am not permitted to say. If you have more specific questions, I will try to answer them as best I can.

                      The Stig: I hear ya about getting your foot in the door. There are lots of other support positions available as well, you should look into some of those also. Make sure you ask tons of questions in the interview, so you know exactly what the job entails....and I stress EXACTLY what it entails. You will have to sign a commitment (two years) and won't be able to apply for other positions during that time period. Just food for thought.

                        I would have no problem with the committment if it opened more doors down the road. The interview was actually much different than most others I had gone through for gov or private sector. I tried to ask questions, but they responded 3 times with "thats classified."

                              I'm not surprised they couldn't answer alot of your questions. Like I said a few posts ago, if anyone has specific questions, I will try to answer them the best way I can.
