    • Maybe some one can help me out with this adjudicative review process and help shed some light on it. I did my poly this past Thursday 10/17. I currently employed with CBP and I did my poly in 2017. The examiner went through the first section and stopped. We talked for a while and said will you be willing to take the poly a second time. The next morning on USA jobs it showed that I was the most qualified and referred to the next step. On Monday I received an email that I was placed on the adjudicative review process. I’m a LEO and a vet. I was just curious if anyone has experienced something along these lines? I’ve done a poly in the past and this is the first time I didn’t finish it so I’m a bit nervous about it.

        Nobody knows. I've been in adjudication for a year and 2 months (After completing EVERYTHING may I add). People say that everyone goes through it but that's NOT true according to HR. Apparently only veterans go through it to "ensure that veterans are treated fairly throughout the process." Whatever that means. We're all in the dark.

          In the hiring process? No, but you're expected to show up to FLETC in shape and able to pass it there.

      • Does anyone know if the medical will come before or after the polygraph? SA said that they may begin FLETC in the spring.
        Applied in 9/19
        SAEE 9/19
        ELAC 10/19
        CJO 10/19

          I got the call to schedule my medical before my call to schedule my poly, but the actual medical exam was a day after my poly. I think its just random on which ever section calls you first.

      • Applied recently and got the best qualified email. Scheduling the SAEE soon. Can anyone elaborate on what the continuing service agreement entails?

        Also, its a common understanding this job sucks on family life. Having a toddler and child on the way, am I setting myself up for misery if I make it through and accept the position? My wife “says” she supports my decision if we have to make a big move, but I don’t think she grasps the reality of my absence and two kids to raise by herself.

        Any input is appreciated.

          Somewhat related: When I was at DEA orientation, the recruiter showed some survey that said USSS had the worst morale out of the big agencies. Everything I read online, people couldn't wait to transfer to another agency and a lot of people said it's not as 'glamorous' aka your day revolves around your protectees schedule and you have to sit and watch doors or hallways for hours and hours.

          Why dont you apply for the FBI? They are seeking really hard right now. I just applied and within a week got invited to Phase 1.

          Pretty much what dark said. I took the job because I want the entry level 1811 stuff done and then possibly transfer somewhere else.

          A lot of my classmates are single without kids so they don’t care about the traveling as am I. I don’t think I’d take it if I had kids on the way or toddlers.

      • Scheduled my UDEE next week. I hear that they're really hurting for people. Hopefully between interacting with uniformed division frequently during my time in the army and being a Current LEO in the DMV area, will put me ahead of most of the other candidates. No wife/kids and already doing 14 hour shifts at my current job.

        • Passed the SAEE. Taken two other 1811 tests and that was unlike both of them but passed without studying somehow. How’s the SUPER?

              yes they do

          • Not sure if anyone here has been in a similar situation or who can help answer my question but I figured I’d at least ask.

            I’ve applied for a position with the Uniform Division and have already successfully passed the UDEE and SUPER interview. I submitted my eQip the last week of October and I’m waiting to hear back to schedule my security interview.

            I’ve also applied for a Special Agent position as well. My application was received, I was referred and I completed the SAEE early this month and I have another SUPER interview scheduled in two days.

            If I were to successfully pass this SUPER interview I would be at the same stage in the process for both the UD and SA. Going forward, would I have to complete multiple stages in the hiring process (i.e. two security interviews, polygraphs, credit checks, medicals, background investigations, home interviews) or is it possible that the agency or field office some how merges the two applications and does everything one time or at least together?

              Can't speak from personal experience, but if I remember correctly, there have been a few people on the forum who have been dual applicants and they only did one Background process for both positions.

              Just tell the office that you have 2 applications, one for each, and that you would prefer their division but are keeping both options open. They likely will collaborate BG.

          • Most sources seem to say that USSS SAs only do protective duty after 3+ years of investigations. Is this true? In this forum, I feel like I’ve mostly seen people talk about the protective mission. My apologies if this has been asked before.

              Investigation isn't a duty of glory or excitement, and revolves around confidentiality, so naturally it doesn't get the spotlight. But IMO that work is more rewarding and just as important.

              Thanks for your response. I understand that completely. I’m currently in the application process and I was just curious. When people explain the drawbacks of the job, they seem to usually take issue with standing guard and traveling all the time. I was unclear on whether the career timeline had changed.

              If you mean doing protective duty full-time, that may be true. The Secret Service agents I've met who were within the first few years on the job were assigned to field offices conducting investigations. However, they spent a lot of time doing protective work to the point that they weren't doing a lot of investigative work. A senior Secret Service agent told me they get all the money they need for protection, but virtually nothing for investigations.

              In essence, you'll do a lot of protective work during the first 3 years even if it isn't technically what you're assigned to do full-time. Therein lies the problem for many. Every time I look up, there seems to be another former Secret Service agent coming over to HSI. It's never because they're unhappy with conducting investigations, but because too much of their life is consumed with protection, the travel and time commitment it requires.

          • Did anyone get referred from the last GL-7 announcement from 2 weeks ago yet?

                I took the test this past week as well for the GL07 post. Seems like most people are moving quickly through the process
