  • Just got my invite to do the written test in DC in March...I've kind of checked out on the process, was told I would hear something by Oct. and never did. Does anyone know exactly what is being covered during the day? I.e. is it just a written test, or will there be interviews and the PAT? Also does anyone know where I can get my hands on a study guide? I've taken the CBP exam before and did great but I have no idea what the DEA test is about. Thanks!

      DEA will follow up with a packet of information prior to the written exam that will explain everything you need to know.

  • I took my psych exam in September, I have been waiting on my e-qip since. Has anyone waited as long as I have just to receive the e-qip email? I have called and was told that my file has been sent to background. That was in December.

      Have you had your psychological interview yet? After the psychological interview, the doctor must submit the results to HQ. I had my psyc interview in December 2018 and got my e-qip last Friday.

      My physiological interview was in the beginning of September.

  • Where are you processing from? I haven’t been waiting as long as you have. I just got the drug test yesterday. Hoping for the eqip in the next couple months.

      I guess somethings are in different orders then. I’m out of Louisville. Most people that I’m in contact with had psyc long before the drug test. Must depend on the recruiter.

      Thanks. Earlier this week (monday) I received a call from the recruiter saying they were waiting on on HQ to send the eqip link before a polygraph could be given, so be on the lookout for a phone call (maybe).

      Congrats that's good news. Hopefully it doesn't take you too much longer to get call for poly. I filled out EQIP early December and didn't get scheduled for poly until mid February. Maybe it will be quicker for others. Taking it this Thursday

      Looks like our timeline is pretty much the same. Hopefully we get into the academy at the same time.

          Relax and be yourself. Not sure if you’re a current law enforcement officer, but job related experience helps, even if you’ve never worked as a cop/CO/military branch, they want to know how you’d handle certain situations. They ask generic questions about scenarios such as something that might’ve been a challenge at work/internship/team sport. There will be a panel of agents, so it’s not as nerve racking as you’d imagine.

          There's a format to this interview. You are given a sheet of paper with questions for what you will be asked prior to you coming into the interview room. That paper assists you with how to prepare your answers. Be confident. Give specific examples. Good luck!

      • If you already have an adjudicated BI from another agency, will that transfer over to DEA? Or do they do their own like SS? Also, how quick has the processed moved after your PT has been taken? Thanks!

          From what I've heard they should carry over or give an interim if you already have a TS. But I'm not certain of that.

          if youre coming from DHS to DEA, DEA will do their own background,poly, adjudication.

          DEA will still do a background investigation and poly no matter if you have a TS or not. Having a TS raising the possibility of an interim clearance. But it all depends on the hiring panel wether you get it or not.

      • Anybody got any insight into how difficult the academy is these days compared to what it used to be?

          I’ve heard that you have to take the Physical Fit Test 3 times during the academy. They implemented that in 2018. So don’t just train to get in, train for life.

      • Anyone from NY had any movement after orientation?

      • Did not pass my panel interview :/

        They said my answers indicated a lack of overall life experience. (I'm about to graduate from grad school).

        I am very glad I made it this far and will reapply.

          I was told in an unofficial capacity that they prefer to hire people in their 30’s and not usually straight out of college.

      • Recieved my SF-86C form and Office of Preference form as well today. The process has picked up tremendous speed as of late.

          I assume everything is tentative with the process but those dates are solid. Unless something crazy happens

          What was the timeline in between taking the poly and any confirmation of passing?

          You won't get any confirmation of passing the poly. Either they contact you to retake/need additional info or you'll move on to the next stage of the process.
