  • Got my COE for Chicago! Look forward to moving along. Good luck to all!

    • So it seems like everyone with a CoE is in the same waiting game but a few have been given the EQIP/SF86 invite already. Some posts mention a call from/to the field office selecting the candidate but that is more of a HR to FO interaction and not with the candidates - do I understand this correctly?

      I got a CoE on the 3/6th for NYC and have no follow up since.

      Anyone else here with an active TS or know if active clearances get pushed through?

      Side note: I expressed earlier my concern for the polygraph portion so I went and got a LEPED examination done in my city (I am not LE and have never done a poly). The examiner seemed experienced and claimed 26 years of DOJ work (I had no reason to doubt but I also didn't care about qualifications - it was a learning experience for me). I learned the breathing techniques I've been taught for arousal control (which I use all the time now) can be viewed as a deceptive counter-measure. I also sigh a lot because I zone out or drift off and don't breathe as deeply as I need to, which isn't deceptive but it messes up the questioning series. My reason for doing the exam was for exposure but also all the posts I read about "honest" people getting unreadable or inconclusive exams being disqualified. The examiner expressed that those people were likely hiding things but my experienced also indicated, random small things can make your test invalid and not necessarily identify you as a "liar". I'm not sure if there is a difference but I wanted to share this with anyone else here who might care.

        Thanks for sharing man, that helps put me at ease a bit. The poly is the wild card for me in this whole deal.. Looking into the polygraph is kind of like looking up your symptoms online for an illness, you end up freaking yourself out.. As long as i pass the poly and my VA medical stuff doesn't shoot me down, i should be golden

        • SVO1983 I got COE for NYC on 3/6 and got eqip email on 3/7. I will be submitting it tomorrow so imagine I will get medical email shortly after that. It sounded to me like there is a few rounds of COE calls they need to make.

          • For those that are waiting on a COE call, do you have a blue star over Conditional Offer? I've got a check over selection decision (3/6) but nothing over Conditional Offer. Maybe that means I'm a reserve or something...an alternate, if someone else backs out..

            • Missed my COE call over a week ago and when I called back they said to just wait, they would call again to extend the offer. Not sure how some of you were able to call back and get the offer, but I'm jealous. Still waiting.

                Do you have anything over Conditional Offer on your dashboard? Or is it blank?

                  Checkmark over Selection Decision on 3/3/17. Nothing over COE, I haven't talked to anyone to receive one yet.

                  • I'm not sure how it works but I believe that the conditional offer will remain blank until you get the offer and accept it. That's when it will have the check mark over it. If I'm mistaken please feel free to correct me guys.
                    stay humble

                      Check this out though

                      https://tsajobs.tsa.dhs.gov/Candidat..._Positions.pdf

                      Under the yellow "offer review" section. The column "in process" which is what the blue star means, it looks like conditional offer will be marked with a blue star when "the candidate has been selected for the position and a Job Offer Specialist is preparing a tentative job offer for review by the candidate."

                      So it looks like a blue star over Conditional Offer means you should be expecting a COE call

                          and this is crazy
                          but I hate my job
                          so call me today!

                          I think I'll sing that song too. Lol

                          I missed my call on Friday. Called the help desk and I just simply have to wait for another one. I'm not sure how some people were able to call back and get the COE LUCKY!!

                            So right now I am at Equip stage...and my dashboard looks like:

                            Green check mark over "Conditional Offer" and
                            Blue Star over "Pre-appointment Background Check"

                            I got the green check mark over "Conditional Offer" the day I got my COE by phone. Before that call, it was a Blue Star.

                            Hope that helps.

                              Too bad our actual "hire date" is probably going to be a month or two away lol... Hopefully I'm wrong
