    Sounds about right

        • Is the SA position a direct hire like DEA is doing now?

          Comment


          • Anyone have any sort of idea when calls go out after final preference sheets? I don’t remember what the timeline was like for those that got them last year.

            • Does anyone know if you fail a poly, if they tell you right away? And if you fail can you retake it?

                Sometimes they will ask you to do “additional testing,” but I do not know if they will allow you to retake it if you actually failed it. I know of several people who had to do the additional testing. It’s becoming more common it seems.

                Typically you won’t know if you failed or not till later. It’s not up to the examiner to make that determination.

            • I should be receiving a polygraph scheduling call within the next few weeks. I can only imagine how long it will take from there to be hired and have an academy date.

                Glad you got some movement Patt. I’m about 7 weeks post poly.. but you’ll feel much better once poly is over.

                For what its worth my med clearance was granted a solid year after poly and my first med follow up was 6 months after my physical. It can take a while, best forget about this for a good bit.

                All timelines are different..... with that said, I took my poly in February of 2016, and I’m still waiting!!

                Makes no sense. I received med clearance last month but still no word on poly.

            • Anyone know what the deal is for FY19 classes?

              Comment


              • Anyone who received a preference sheet a couple weeks ago receive another today?

                  I did. Any ideas if that means we’re getting close?

              • How long did it take you 2015s to get your first preference sheet after completing all steps? The 2016s only got a sheet with the FedEx packet and it listed every single location. To my knowledge, no one from our group has received anything additionally.

                  I know it doesnt help with the wait but dont feel like you were passed over this year Celo. I know of people who completed everything around Aug 17 who didn't get a sheet. Think of yourself as the last guy to be offered a sheet in case of people dropping out instead of the first guy to be passed on.

                  You got one again this year and thats more than most can say.

                  I received my medical clearance 9/28/16. I received a preference sheet last August and was not selected for a 2018 class. I received a preference sheet this time as well.

                  I figured the sheet was more of a contingency but it’s tough to try and make sense of things. A guy I worked with got his preference sheet in September of 2016 but didn’t get a call for a class until Feb 2017. Didn’t realize until my time came around that he was probably a spot that someone declined.

                  Thanks for sharing. I got my med clearance early May and my background investigator did all his stuff a couple weeks ago. Hoping I have a slim chance at FY19 but who knows.

              • Does anyone know the pay system in fletc? Base plus locality? It will play a factor for me come decision time.

                  No locality at fletc.. you do get LEAP.

                  You get locality of your assigned office location

              • 10-4 so base plus leap-- is leap 25%?

                  Correct. So base X 1.25 should give you your pay at FLETC

              • You will get your base+locality+leap at FLETC. Use the link below, choose your FO location, and multiply by 1.25 like Colonel said.

                  Even better, thanks for clarifying for us.

              • You guys are great. Thanks again---

                Comment


                • Well it was a fun ride guys but I officially withdrew this morning.

                  I had a choice to do this starting at 35-36 years old or continue in the brewing industry. I was approached in October to open a brewery, choose equipment and setup, run the brewery, profit share, and partial ownership. The size of the project made it too perfect the pass up.

                  So with that said. If any of you are in the Harrisburg, PA area, we’ll be open around 01Nov. Its a big place, we’re not disclosing the name quite yet as that’s still in development and trademarking process. Once everything is finalized in the next month or so maybe I’ll swing in here and update in case anyone likes beer here.


                  Stay safe everyone!

                    I spoke to an HR specialist and she said an email was fine. I wanted to make sure I didn’t need to send a certified letter or something similar.
