  • Any good rumors? I'm on month 9 of medical follow up review. Let's hope we all start hearing something. I check every two weeks and get the standard, pending OHC Medical..

      Sorry, big, asking wire. But you had VA rating too and were cleared right?

      8 months in medical follow up. Word from an agent I know is most of the SACs are extremely frustrated with this bogged down hiring process... particularly the medical. He says they just hired a bunch of contractor docs to speed things up. With that says, my other 1811 process had no medical follow up and I’ll likley take a job from them before I get an offer here.. plus no boarder spot.

  • PM sent chipper.

    • It's been a month yesterday since I got the email saying I'm good to get hired. But, no "call" yet. I'm sure it has something to do with the holidays and the budget wrangling in D.C., but I though someone on here might be able to offer some insight.

      • Anyone know if the run in the academy completed on the track in groups or all at once? Also, are the sit ups done in the gym on a mat or track etc and what’s the feet’s required position?

          It's all done outdoors on track, even if it is raining and 43°, and together. Situps are standard position for feet, with someone kneeling on them.

                Sorry man.. I'm in the same boat with ya... 2.5 years waiting, Vet and current HSI guy. Although I'm in med hold, haven't been asked to poly yet. This process if absolutely appalling! One of our local task force guys applied in the June direct hire... he's already at FLETC!

                CFAV so you’re current HSI and in the HSI process?

                Omg, that's horrible CFAV. I dont see how they can only give the poly to some and not all, then DQ someone for failing a poly? But if they didn't poly me then I go on and get hired? It literally makes no sense. It's like saying ok, everyone go run a mile...except you guys, you guys are cool. How is any of this fair and even hiring practice if some of us are being subjected to different hiring standards?

            • triniboy05 yeah, Im an 1801 GS-13... I'm applying for the 1811 position. Granted I understand some people are hoping to get this job and quit working at Wal-Mart or whatever, nonetheless I still want to be a SA within the agency. What i meant by that is, I have come across a few bitter people that when I tell them I'm already a GS13... they think I should be happy and not seek to "take away" a position from someone else or something.

                Oh okay got ya, that’s cool. I don’t look at it as “taking it away” from anyone else. What God has for you, is for you, and the same applies to them. All you can do is your part, good luck with everything.

                Assuming you're a TEO then? I mean, in reality that grass is definitely not any greener, but good luck. Have you considered what happens with your current position should they require a poly and there are issues?

            • Got the call. I thought the gov was supposed to be shut-down!

              Offered El Paso or Albuquerque. Chose El Paso.

                Nice! What locations did you pick when you applied? I messed up and picked San Antonio instead of El Paso. Great guys over in El Paso!

                You weren't Polygraphed were you Big E? I can believe they kicked me from the process for failing something not everyone has to do...

            • I got the call today too. Offered LA or SF, went with LA. EOD Feb 4th and start FLETC on Feb 5th.

                No poly - just a simple medical follow-up for LASIK.

                Incredible how the ones that did the poly are getting ****ing wrecked while others didn't even do it...unbelievable.

                chipperjones maybe his background is different than yours? I have a TS-SCI with HSI, that **** is way more in-depth than a poly would be? I would hope I dont have to poly...

                CFAV Ive had multiple TS SCI in the mil as well as passing other Polys before, And I am current DHS. I have access to like maybe like 20 systems? as an HSI employee I don't think you will be polygraphed. to be honest I haven't heard anyone getting any more polys since early December...But there is other people that aren't current fed or LEO and just skating on by with no polys, SMDH

              • Well, I finally got some form of update from Dallas after a call I made to them. Apparently my file has updated doctor notes, meaning doctors are talking amongst themselves about my stuff. Citing "HIPAA", she coulnd't tell me what they wrote (stupid, because it's my information that I verified with name, DOB and last 4)... but said at least they have hands on your package now.

                • I e-mailed DSC a few weeks ago inquiring as to my status. I completed the poly (last step) back in November and my BI was wrapping up at that point. They replied indicating that I'm "fully cleared pending a job offer". They stated that I'll be contacted when a location that I applied for becomes available. I picked all large western ports, so I'm assuming several have vacancies. Anyone in the same spot as me -- just waiting on an academy date? Am I likely to receive the call in the next couple of weeks? Thanks in advance.

                    Yeah man pretty much if you’re all cleared it’s just a matter of your locations freeing up and there being an academy spot which there should be. What locations did you put in for?

                • Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Antonio.. I’m thinking Los Angeles is going to be the most likely offer.
