    • Can anyone explain the difference between a Division Office, Resident Office, and Post of Duty? Also, where do the new guys/gals usually get assigned out of those three?

I would assume there will be a question that asks if I've been involved in a fight in adult years or something to that extent (as I had come across that at a different LE agency during their background check). Is that something that would be a major issue at DEA?
      It will come up during the psych.

      • Anyone gotten a call for the November class?

        • I’ve been following both DEA threads and, so far, has anyone gotten one of their location choices? Just curious. It seems like every post I see about locations, someone says they didn’t get any of their choices. I’m wondering if the locations these people do get are geographically close to their desired locations or if they seem to be completely random.

          • Who do we call to check the status of our application? Whenever I call HR I get voicemail.

              If either one of you has a good number could you message it to me?

          • Have any of you heard of the BI being completed before the poly?

            I met with the investigator about two weeks ago and she said my BI was placed in a priority status and was scheduled to be completed in 30 days. However, I have received no word about the poly.

            These should be the last things I have to complete.

            • I was told my BI was completed by OPM but was waiting for adjudication by the DOJ . I have not done my poly yet

              • Mikelowry,

                Congratulations, I hope you hear something soon. Do you currently work for a federal agency, or already possess a TS clearance? I was told, and have read on here, the BI part of the process was backed up and short staffed.

                  I appreciate it . I am currently a police officer and I only possess a Secret clearance from the military.

                  Yeah it’s ridiculous how short staff they are . I’m trying to have as much patience as possibly but it’s hard as I’m sure you all know

                  Short staffed as in personnel to process the applicant information? I'm asking because OPM would contract backgrounds for DEA out to contractors. Backgrounds are now going through the DOD, as of the beginning of the month. My section/employer conducts them, and we aren't short staffed. The issue we are having is that DOD has not been assigning work.

              • Are there any current SA in here, or recently graduated from the academy? I have a few questions about the position, as I am getting close. If you could PM, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

                • I’m talking short staff as in DEA conducting the polygraphs

                    Yup thats what I was told as well. I got an invite to a MAC outside of my city after passing my written test at my FO, and opted not to attend (not mandatory). Don't see the point in getting the other stuff out of the way ASAP when theres such a shortage on polygraphers.

                    Honestly I would have went to MAC. One step down in the process is better than no steps . Especially after MAC they would have sent your packet To get an eqip code to complete your SF-86 and then onto backgrounds

                    I thought about it, but the two cities where its being held isn't nearby. For the past month and a half my area is for a lack of a better term furloughed, due to no BI work being assigned by the DOD. As a result no one has been able to get any income, so I'm being a little cautious financially. The MAC is great if you haven't completed any steps. I could see problems coming doing one portion at an FO, then going to a MAC because it seems they keep recruiters out of the loop with the MAC. I got the email for the MAC and it was directly from HQ.

                    Ah I see yeah sometimes it seems like HQ and the recruiters are reading the same book but not on the same chapter . I hope it all works out for you though

                • Got the call for BAT 223 a few days ago.

                    Congrats man! When did you take your poly? Hanging in limbo and trying to gauge how long it takes between the poly and an offer.

                • Anyone know.....Is final PTA done at the division office? Or will they test you more locally?
