    I apologize for answering before I did my research. Thank you Bronco_Smith for correcting me, I learned something new today. My current agency was not as generous as the Secret Service sounds. Bronco_Smith can you give an over view of what this meeting entails? This is conducted after all of the steps are complete correct?

      • What are the events for the physical abilities test? I know 1.5 mi, sit ups, and push-ups are in there.... I was told that there is an agility test and possibly chin ups?? Confused bc the recruiter said agility and no chin ups, website says the opposite.

          Recruiters update faster than website.... Go with what the recruiter told you as that is who will give you the test.

          Btw the website physical requirements are up to date and gives the accurate test requirements

            if you are talking about the APAT for getting hired their website is your best friend.

            There are standards for once you are hired as well on the site.

              Are you sure that you work for DHS in a FLEO position?
              For future reference, I would get your facts straight before you start questioning ones background. On that note I accept your apology. All is well

              • Not sure why your carrying on after I apologized. I'm not going to get into who has more processes under their belt because the facts are we are both in this process together. If we don't correct or help each other out, why should any of us post on here. Good luck!

                • If you're single and live alone would they still do a home interview?

                  • Yes, they would still do the interview since it is a part of the process. Mainly ment for family but it is to give the applicant a little more insight on what to expect, just to make sure its something you absolutely want to get involved with.

                        Got Referred in Feb.
                        Just got my SAEE test invite yesterday to take the exam this week.

                        I know of the preparation study guide I can use to prepare for the exam, but anyone else have any additional advice?

                        FYI - i am based in Miami

                          The SAEE study guide provided on the USSS website is seriously the best way to prepare. I can't say much more than that but you'll be just fine if you go over it very thoroughly. Best of luck.

                            If you're male: wear a suit and tie, NOT a sport jacket, slacks and a tie. If you're female: wear the equivalent, and do not leave your hair down. Pull it back.

                            They called people out who weren't wearing the proper attire at the SAEE at this office.
