  • Well just writing to say farewell and good luck to the rest of you. I called in to HQ and they told me my application is no longer being considered, not sure why. I'm from the 2016 group; went through all stages without any issues. background check was closed December 2018. I thought all was going well. but i guess all roads have an end. Hope the rest of you all make it through. Good luck.

      Did they not give you a reason? Did you ask?

      I asked why and the lady said she didn't know, just that my application would no longer be considered and that I would get a letter in the mail. I reached out to my recruiter to see if they could get any additional details. but no reply yet.

  • Sorry to hear that brother! Did they tell you when they made that decision?

    • Has anyone been given an offer after the government opened back up? I was granted interim clearance and am slated for the March class but has been radio silence. Have not been given my final offer yet.

        Well after receiving an email that the hiring board approved my hire I received another email stating I have been given a slot in the March academy. Pending final PT test

        Did you receive the email that the hiring board approved you for hire shortly after submitting the updated forms? I haven't received that email. I was just told by my recruiter I was being looked at for the March Academy and I needed to have my PT recert completed asap. I received the updated SF86C and Background Questionnaire by email shortly after that which I then got them all submitted.

    • Any updates or offers by anyone lately ?

        Took PTT 2 this week. Waiting on hiring panel decision / call from HR if accepted. I’m not available until April Academy at soonest so I’m sure I haven’t been looked at yet.

        This week I was called by my recruiter informing me I’m being considered for the April class, and to expect a call to do the pt soon. He stated it has to be done before they submit my packet to the hiring board.

    • Hey gents, I checked in with my recruiter and he said my BI is still in process. However I haven’t heard anything from my investigator, nor my contacts have been contacted. My recruiter said when my BI is processed that they will contact me? So what does that mean in regards to my BI? I guess no news is good news?

        Have you filled out your SF-86 background forms from OPM? I am in the BI phase as well but haven’t received my SF-86 forms to fill out which details my past 10 years so they can reach out to my friends, family co workers etc. Not sure what the BI entails without me filling out the SF-86...

        Do either of you have current TS clearance? It’s possible that they’re going to reciprocate. I didn’t have prior clearance, but from reading the various DEA forums, it seems pretty consistent with why you haven’t heard anything.

    • Just got the official call. 3 locations were offered to me at time of the call

        I didn't get offered any of my locations. It is nice to be able to pick from 3 locations though.

        Hmmm. I guess you (we) never know what you are going to get in this process. I just hope I get offered places before I go to the academy (fingers crossed) so that I can plan a little beforehand.

        The biggest thing about what there doing now is at least letting people know WHERE they will be stationed out after the academy. That way you cal already start getting family and stuff ready for a move. It’s a lot better then the previous classes that decided mid way into the academy

        That is great news. Even if you (we) get stuck in a place we don't like, at least we can plan like you said. Most agencies, at least the one's I know a little of do it that way. It makes so much sense.

    • Can anyone confirm that OPM does all of the background checks? I passed my poly in June, submitted the e-qip, and haven’t heard anything since. I reached out, told me they were waiting to hear back the result from my background .. I contacted OPM and they have nothing in my name.

      • Just got an update that my office has been back logged and that my BI was just assigned to an investigator a few days ago and I should be hearing from someone soon. They didn’t have anything saying that I had a current clearance though. My BI began last June. Not sure how much longer it will be after I talk to someone. But at least things are still moving forward.

        • I'm wondering if any of you that got the call could provide me a little insight on the last steps of the process. I was contacted last week and told that I needed to recert my PFT asap (as in I got it scheduled on Thursday and took it on Monday). I had already received my SF86C and disclosure forms the week prior to that. Many of you said you were told that you were past the hiring board - then contacted to fill out office preferences and reschedule PFT. I was told that my packet wouldn't go to hiring board until after I passed the PFT. Anyway - I passed that on Monday. Got my office preference sheet on Tuesday and then received a form yesterday about being suitable for an interim clearance (which I had to say I knew the risks, sign and send back). Am I just waiting on the hiring call now? I was never told I was going to a specific class, just that if I was going to be able to get into March I needed to have my PFT done ASAP (HQ contacted my recruiter telling him I should have already retaken it).

            I applied under an older announcement so my experience is probably slightly different than yours. I was past the hiring board before I received the update documents.

            I recommend contacting the number listed on the job announcement or your HR contact that sent you the paperwork. No one on here is going to be able to answer your questions....at least not as well as representative at the DEA. Good luck and congratulations on getting to the end of the process.

            I received a call form my recruiter saying the hiring panel approved me for hire, and the following week I got the HR paperwork/ employment verification. I applied in the 2016 announcement.

          • Mornin’ Gents. 1st time poster. Long time lurker. Anyone else 17-2 out of Houston? I’ve been waiting on Poly since I finished eQip in November. Was told my BI started then, but haven’t spoken to anyone.
