    Congratulations to those who are getting "THE CALL!" That is so exciting! I have been moving along with the UD process, and the Agent conducting my Security Interview suggested I apply for the SA position (Which I already had done, but not been referred.) So I gladly used the link he provided me to apply on 11/25/14. I was referred, and now I am scheduled to take the SAEE in about ten days.

    I had some questions, and maybe someone here can help me out with them.

    1. Will any of the work that I did with the UD count towards the SA application? (the SPI, the GIANT PACKET, Security Interview, Polygraph)?

    And 2. What does excepted service mean? If I understand it correctly, it means that I am not applying under the normal hiring authority, but under a special authority. Do I understand that correctly? And if so, what exactly does that mean?

    Good luck to everyone, and may there be many more CALLS.

    You can search this thread for more details, since this has been discussed a few times, but all of your completed Phase II stuff from UD will carry over to the SA application. You should only have to test, panel interview (SPI) and receive the Special Agent HI.

      Let me be straight and clear. That Intel is straight truth and you made it laughably clear. Thank you. I and others appreciate it!
      You called me out like a Boss, though. Respect lol. [emoji113]
      Naw man. It was a long day so maybe I misinterpreted although I did read a few times and still felt that way but no worries, understanding context is hard when reading vs talking.

      Once again. It's all good. Cheers

      Good luck

      ***edit***
      yeah man I just went back and read my quote then read your response. This morning I can clearly see the sarcasm. So it's a definite "my bad". I would have caught it if I weren't so exhausted last night

      • Hello everyone. This is my first post.

        June 2014 applicant.

        I got "The Call" yesterday.

        Congrats to everyone that has gotten the call and to everyone that is still moving forward in the process.

        • To those of us JUNE 2013 applicants or as I like to call us now "The Forgotten Four", let's keep the faith and hope someday we'll get "The Call". To our JUNE 13 folks that got picked up, congratulations! Would have loved to join you, but isn't in the cards yet. Our group has been waiting forever and good to see we aren't all getting jumped by newer candidates :-). Good luck and hope to see you out in the field someday soon!

              There wasn't a June 2014 announcement so I'm assuming he meant June 2013. That would jive with every other The Callâ„¢ that's been posted this week.

              • Correction,

                May 2014 applicant.

                Took the test in June so I considered that the start of my process.

                      Oh in that case... Holy crap that is fast! Good for you man! If you're OK with telling, which cities were you offered? I'm May 14 as well. Such a broad range of processing speeds. I'm in the median speed range I think. For comparison, here's my USSS SA process Timeline:

                      Applied - 5/2/14 (notified SAEE 6/2)
                      SAEE - 6/11/14 (notified passed 6/16)
                      SPI - 6/23/14 (notified passed 8/11)
                      COE - 8/11/14 (GS-9)
                      Security Packet turned in - 8/18/14
                      Security Interview - 8/28/14
                      Polygraph - 10/20/14 (called to schedule on 10/1)

                        DC and NYC...I picked DC. I applied out out of the WFO too, so not sure how or why, but I'll take it. Once again, toss out all logic, rhyme or reason in this process. Excited to get this ball rolling finally either way and can't wait to see more offers go out to you remaining warriors!
                        "huge list" lol. Did you flip a coin? Worked out it sounds like. Congrats and thanks for sharing!

                          Haha, thought about flipping a coin. But it just made logical sense to go with the local field office I applied under. Very rare that local offers are made and it helps that I actually like D.C. Thanks for the congrats!

                            The sad part about this application process, is the longer it takes the more consideration I have to put into whether to accept it or not.

                            A friend sent me this latest Rank of government agencies.
