      Took the written test on Tuesday (10/31) in Denver. Recruiter said he's hopeful for DEC or early JAN panel-interviews.

        There were five of us, all Vet Pref. We took the first two parts, pretty standard and basic. Before we took the written part the DEA recruiter took a guy out in the hall and we never saw him again.

        I recommend for the recall to practice your note taking. For the grammar to study an ACT/SAT prep guide. The written is also easy but I am awful with spelling so I practiced that. I wouldn't say it's an easy test but it's not a monster like other agencies (i.e. FBI or USSS).

        Thank you so much for all the info! I was told there would be a 45 minute orientation before the exam. So not sure what that entails and I’m not sure if there will be a lot of recruits testing with me because I’m not a vet. But did you get your score right away?

        No worries. Good luck. It was more of a Pass/Fail. I knew leaving that I had tentatively passed on to the panel interview. He said the official notification comes from DEA HQ a few weeks after he sends up the results.

        Appreciate you brother! I’m honestly so incredibly nervous because it’s my dream job and I’m studying daily for hours at a time because I want to pass! I hope it’s not as hard as I have envisioned but better over prepared then under! Good luck with the rest of the process!

        orientation was in NYC? correct? if so, it was like that before and you didn't have to attend, despite what they said.

    • #37
      I took the written test Thursday and I am awaiting the results. He also informed us that headquarters wants all of the panel interviews done before the new year.

        I looked over the top 30 most common grammar errors and it really helped me on the 2nd written test. Just relax and pay attention to all of the instructions given and you'll be fine.

          That question was meant for Lone-ranger so that's my error. Good luck Samthedetroiter and thank you AndrewRink for the advice.

          Lep89 I basically looked at the competencies and thought about my related experiences. I’ve done interviews for other FLEO positions so they’re all pretty much the same.

          When is yours scheduled?

          The panel interview date is T.B.D. The recruiter said he still had to give the written test to Kansas City and South Dakota applicants. He said that he would hopefully have them scheduled and completed by the end of the year. I've been through multiple panel interviews prior to getting hired as an LEO, but I've never been through a FLEO panel interview.

          It’s not bad...just review the guide to look at the core competencies and you’ll be fine. Very low pressure...the agents on the panel were cool and are usually laid back from reading other posters’ experiences

          Received the Conditional Offer Letter (COL) this morning. The recruiter said she'll be scheduling me for the written psych exam.

            Congratulations Lone-ranger. I am surprised they don't have people go through the process in a uniformed way (Sarcasm). I have the panel interview Monday and according to the email I received, I will be taking the written psych exam right after upon passing the interview.

            Lep89. I feel you on the uniformed part. Here in Denver we took the written psych exam right after completing the grammar testing.

            Thanks guys. Lep, I feel you on uniformity too. I wish we could've taken the psych too because I heard it takes time to get them scored.

          Finally some movement here. Looks like I'm being put in the December announcement, not the May one like I was told.
