  • For those interested, the best way you can figure out where you stand prior to hiring panel is to call your Human Resources Unit Personell Security Specialist to see where your TS stands. They conduct their own suitability investigation for TS clearance and go from there. Found out yesterday from my HRU rep that my TS clearance is approved and awaiting activation once I get to the academy. I have not received a phone call regarding my final hiring offer however information like that from HR is pretty telling..thought I’d share

      They should have been emailing you while you were submitting/working on your SF 86

      Yes I did. Slated for April 28 Academy.

  • I'm part of the 2014 group! I know I'm like a unicorn!

    Written- May
    Oral Board- June
    Medical -August
    Poly -Sept which was 6 hours long unhooked me 3 times even placed a plastic bag over my hand (horrible)
    Background- Oct (they placed a priority on my file which I was told)
    Physical- Jan 2019

    Recruiter tells me she does not know anything in terms of me passing or failing the poly which I thought was weird finally tracked down a number at HQ and she told me my file looks good waiting for the physical and hiring panel? Who is this hiring PANEL? She also told me there are several academy dates for next year!

    • Radio silence for awhile. Does this shutdown impact HR, hiring panel, academy classes etc.?

        My recruiter said they are recalling employees to conduct the hiring panel. His words were that they will fill the March class whether the government is shut down or not. He told me I should hear something by the end of next week.

        March 3 then April 28

    • Same here. I was contacted by my division SA recruiter today and told March is still a go. I was being notified to do my recert since I was slotted for it. I was told that if I accepted an offer I wouldn''t be paid until they were funded but would still be in the academy. That may be difficult for some if they have a mortgage, family and steady income. Also, I was also told that they had 54 people in the last academy class and 2 were dismissed for not meeting PTT standards. Keep up with the PT everyone!

        I am wondering why they failed that portion? I mean, I know it's hard but shouldn't they be ready for it or at least used to the suffering and completion of that part? I am by no means the best at physical activities but I think if we keep on training constantly we might be able to pass this portion at the academy. I think this is the only part I can control.

    • I am just waiting on my BI. They have talked to several people and past jobs. Stopped hearing anything in October and have not been contacted by the investigator. So just waiting to see when that is finished.

            Yeah in another set of forms it states it’s a new pilot program that the agency is attempting to put future agents in there first request. Still states that you are still subject to the mobility agreement as well

        • Champwhteek did you meet with an investigator for your BI? For some of my past BI I have and for others I have not. Just curious how they are doing it.

              Thanks for the info. Yeah mine began but I have never spoken with anyone.

          • Update: received email from Headquarters HR to submit update forms for sf86c and some disclosure forms.

            Im done with process in that limbo of pending background and last PT recert. I’m assuming this is for interim clearance?

              From my experience my first initial medical which you do the eye test urine test ETC was not considered for the drug portion, I was sent a separate email on a different date to take a drug test. Hope that helps.

          • Long time lurking on this site, I just did my polygraph today, but I'm not sure I'm going to have to reschedule do the fact that the examiner couldn't get a proper read of my natural body features. He said, i was breathing slow and that interfered with his test. I told him because my stomach is acting up and I was trying to regulate it so I dont pass gas in his office, and he took it into consideration. He stayed and talked to me for 30 or more minutes to after the exam. From you guys experience, what do you think will happen when Washington gets the results would I have to retake the exam, would I fail or would be considered a pass?

              Did he mention countermeasures at all? That seems to be an automatic DQ for the process. Good luck!

              He mentioned countermeasures but, it wasn't any countermeasure that was intentional. He said the fact that I told him what i believe i did wrong and what my explanation was showed that I'm honest and have integrity. Instead of lying or not acknowledging what happen.

              Hopefully if it wasn’t a favorable poly then they will have you poly again. From what I’ve read from other people, countermeasures is an auto DQ and can’t ever reapply. As far as know if you passed, you never get an email or anything, you just keep moving on. Best of luck!

              Your right, but now I have to wait and see. I'm just anxious, and I hope what that me breathing slow didnt put me in a predicament. But thanks bro, the only thing I can say is the examiner liked my honesty and integrity. And he was really big on that, since I stepped in the office that was his main concern.
