    My time line was fast this time, and I am very thankful. I did apply in 2004 fresh out of college and got my TEA out of the way then. It saved me time this time, but it did not feel good to get the thin letter after the panel back then.

    And thank you by the way.

    • Any reason why the Secret Service stopped accepting applications from GS-5's? Seems as if they're hiring often, they'd want to open it up for more interested candidates????

        i have decent credit even though twice i had to pay an overdraft fee for spending more than what was in my account. im just afraid the SS wouldn't accept me just because of a minor issue or two with my credit. opinions would be greatly appreciated!!
        I was told basically that they look at if you are able to pay the debts you owe, like to the gov't. I think you would be ok if you have not had anything sent to collections. Iam just guessing though.

              • 1811BigFella - Give me a PM if you can. I think we are in the exact same spot.


                • USSS just sent me the thanks but no thanks email. Applied in the middle to end of May. How long would you guys give before re-applying?

                    One year minimum. If they do not view you as competitive then you need time to build your resume. Can not do that in any less than a year.

                      Hi BLaw81,

                      Im waiting on a call for the panel too, I see you are in Broward, are you hiring out of Miami??


                      • How many agents are the SSSA looking to hiring?


                        • Is their way of saying they I am not competitive telling me something to the effect that this isn't a negative reflection on my qualifications but rather that too many well qualified applicants put in at this time and many qualified were not selected? Just trying to figure it out so I know where I am at. I wish if it was my experience or qualifications they would have just told me.
