    I emailed the NYC filed office for any consideration but haven’t heard anything about applying. Was there a USAjobs announcement that just recently passed?

      You had to reach out to your division and email them resume and transcripts to be considered. Then they forwarded it to HQ which sent out the official application. No usajobs announcement for this position.

    When did you email them?
    Did they reply to your email?

            Give them a call instead of just emailing.

                I contacted the DEA division office which was nearest to me. Their recruiter emailed me shortly thereafter and asked for my resume, college transcripts, and DD214.

                Luckily for me there was a SA announcement a month or so later and I was emailed a checklist of documents to email to DEA HQ. Around 4 months later (OCT 31) I tested, then a month later (04 DEC)conducted the panel interview. Now waiting to take the PT test and Physical here in January.

              Does anyone know if 30% PTSD is a disqualifier?

                Sounds like you should be asking yourself that question?

                I do not know for sure and would ask the recruiter.

                However I worked with an 1811 at HSI who was had VA 40% disability (PTSD/Back injury). I believe if you can pass the PT test and Psychological examination they can't discriminate and disqualify you.

                Unfortunately it is not my opinion or belief that I can fulfill the requirements of a special agent, rather it is the subjective opinion of a psychologist based on what he "thinks" or "feels."

                Also, there are automatic disqualifiers due to the responsibilities and requirements of a position that does not violate the ADA or constitute discrimination if the same measure is applied toward all applicants.

                Thanks for the responses.

              Received an email notification that I was rated ineligible... kinda expected it considering I’m a recent graduate. Good luck to everyone and try to enjoy the process

                I won't worry about it. They are going to be numerous classes for FY18 and FY19. I would stay in contact with the recruiter and let him know you are still interested.

                Was this before or after you sent in your application?

            • #71
              AndrewRink Franco2094 Correction: I’m an idiot. That email was from the IRS recruiter in response to their SA opening. Both email chains look alike in my inbox, so I got them confused. Play ball!

                Written Test: Done
                Panel Interview: Done
                Written Psych: Done
                Oral Psych: 1/10/18
                Medical Exam: 1/19/18
                PT Test: T.B.A.

                I have been practicing the PT test and it doesn't look bad on paper, but when you actually do it you realize it is tougher than you think. The mile and a half is what sucks the most for me. The 300 meter sprint drains a lot of energy.

                  Congratulations on getting past the panel. I did my medical this week so I'm sure it'll take about a month to clear. Any word on when your oral psych will be? I hope it's fairly soon after the new year because my January is crazy at work.

                  Lone-Ranger let me know how long it takes them to clear you for the PT. I am planning for the worst, which would be that they schedule me for the PT test 1/22.

                Anyone from BA 2017-2 hear anything yet as to eligibility with headquarters?

                  Negative, and with the holidays and people taking leave I would imagine it won’t be anytime soon unfortunately.

              • #74
                They gave me the number to call to schedule it myself. My oral psych is 1/10/18 and they gave me a week from today to go and take a drug test.

                  Also if you don’t mind, what requirements did they say your lacking? The bare minimum requirement is just having a bachelors degree, were you trying the LEO experience route?
