  • Just got word that I need to conduct second drug screening tomorrow. Does anyone know if it’s normal to conduct another screening after completing everything? Recruiter said to get it done ASAP

      There seems to be a disconnect somewhere along the line. My recruiter thought I never did one. I sent him my receipt from the first test and he told me to hold off on going to the second screening.

      The lady that called me for the drug test told me to scan and email her the receipt immediately so she could get it to HQ ASAP.

      I went and just did the second one. I spoke with the clinic staff and they freakin tossed my first sample on accident. That’s why HQ never got any results!

  • Got selected for the FBI academy starting July 7th. Got word this morning!!!

      Congrats man! Best of luck!

  • I applied for the FBI back in December. Process was fast

    I heard as of last week they only had 69 applicants on the roster for the July class out of 180.

    • Some helpful information in regards to the background investigations. Apparently OPM and DoD have now merged to complete background investigations. Now DoD is the overall background investigation agency.

      **FBI is excluded because they hire their own investigators to conduct backgrounds on their applicants**

        • Anyone know how long it typically takes to start the SF86/EQIP/polygraph process?

          I did the psych back in the beginning of May and medical about a month ago. Having some hold-ups with the medical, but the recruiter said the rest of the process can continue while concurrently finishing medical.

          I imagine its HQ that reaches out with the EQIP information?

            Expect to wait awhile. It took 7 months to get equip after my medical and psych and 3 1/2 months after submitting my equip to get poly scheduled. I have TS and current federal employee. It takes awhile. But everyone is different so hopefully goes quicker for you. Good luck!

        • Okay. Thank you for the quick response.

              Domestic travel - I don't imagine why you couldn't travel so long as you have access to your primary email & phone numbers in case the investigator has a question (varies by investigatory agency/specific investigator).

              International travel - You probably don't want to be traveling outside the country unless already disclosed and/or approved.

              • Submitted my equip in March 2019
                Completed my poly in June 2019

                But my BI still hasnt contacted me yet.

                Anyone else on the same boat as me or have any info you can share? Thanks

                  my BI contacted me a month ago and, allegedly, had to turn in my BI check by July 1st. No poly to this day.

                  I met my BI well before my poly. It’s strange how every timeline or order of steps are not the same. I completed my final pt test may 31. Now I’m just waiting for the “call”

                  CATM1984 Did you already have a TS/SCI prior to your background check with the DEA?

                  admm I have a current secret clearance with the military but not a TS. Not sure if that would play a factor in it or not

              • CATM1984 do you happen to know if your background is completely finished? I did my final pt test recently but my background is still active.

                  That I’m not sure of. I was told recently from my recruiter that my packet was getting ready to be presented to the hiring panel, he just didn’t know when. How do you know if your background is complete?

                  Several posts on the last page of the 2017 dea applicant thread seem to have helpful info for that. I haven’t actually checked on mine, but I know it’s active b/c my references are still receiving calls.

              • My background was completed on May 29, I then did my refresher PT may 31. I was told my background is with the agency now and just waiting to be adjudicated.

                • ajc518 posted this contact number for opm. May be helpful to find where and what your status is in regards to your BI.
