    I got scheduled for April. I am trying my local library for books due to the fact that math is no longer there and all books out there are from prior to the change. Good luck on the test and keep us posted.

    I am applying under CS physical sciences and language (no LE experience). How about you?

    I thought the Phase II interview was before the PT (not what the FO said but she may have been confused)..either way I'm as prepared as can be. When I tested there was only myself and one other person taking the phase I test. We took it right at the field office. The other guy was 36 so they were rushing to get him through due to the age restrictions. I was referred by the TRP, so I was told I was afforded the opportunity to test becuase they need qualified folks. Otherwise, the nice admin lady said there was a testing freeze for Phase I. I'll probably sling the TRP recruiter that referred me an email to give him the heads up that I passed. That helped me expedite my employment with Homeland Security after I got out of the army. Thanks for the link to the academy. Cheers.

    My friend did his PT test within a month of passing the interview.

    Got the call that I passed the Phase I..now I'm waiting for the local field office to call to set up the PT test. I thought the telephonic interview was the next step but the FBI admin folks begged to differ. I was impressed, it only took'em 8 days to tell me I passed. Hopefully the FBI will continue to move faster than Homeland Security (my current employer)...this is me, holding my breath.

    ....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I took Phase 1 a couple years ago and passed. That was about it. The recruiter basically told me LE guys were a dime a dozen regarding candidates. They're looking for people in finance and linguistics. Don't hold your breath coppers...or veterans for that matter.

    ahhhhh NO! You just keep waiting. That's the sucky part right there. The G is so slow it's crazy. I think the fastest hiring blitz I've seen was w/ the USSS last year, they were picking people up in like 6 months! But, just keep waiting and be patient.

    Phase I completed. No idea if I passed. This is me in a holding pattern.

    I applied through the fbijobs.com posting for both the SA position and the HRT. No special skills as far as IT or language. I did time in the active duty army infantry and am currently working for Homeland Security.

    If you applied and haven't heard I strongly recommend you give your local FBI Field office a call. The HRT recruiter told me he referred me to my local office for the Phase I test but I never heard from them. After standing-by for a few more weeks I called just to see what the status of my application was. The nice lady at the field office said "oh yes, here's your information right here. Can you make it here in 5 days to take the test"?

    Not sure if my eagerness to test is going to result in a self inflicted wound, but I said "sure". If its truely a test you can't study for then time shouldn't matter.

    Best of luck to all.

    Just curious, but did you apply under one of their listed "preferred categories" (like IT background, tactical training or languages)?

    FBI Phase I test

    I apologize if this question has been answered ad naseum but I canouldn't find what I was looking for. I applied to the FBI two months ago and after not hearing anything I called the field office. The nice FBI lady that answered said, "oh yes, we have your info...can you test on 30 Jan?" That is only 6 days away (counting today). I'm not looking for specific questions that were asked (I know thats a big no-no) but since there is no time to get a study guide can anyone answer if there is math on the phase I test? In the past there was but I have heard through our Spec Agents here at ICE that they've done away with that. Thanks for any help.

    Well most of the fed agencies are having some lean times with regard to budgets. A lot of money was spent on LE agencies, to include hiring new bodies, in the years right after 9/11/01. So right now most agencies have slowed down hiring, often having a hiatus between putting new agents into training.

    My advice is to apply to every fed agency you are interested in that has openings, and don't limit yourself just to one at a time. That increases your chances of getting a fed job, getting in before you get too old, and getting more years toward retirement.

    I had a friend who applied to USPIS and got rejected, then Customs (now ICE) and got rejected, then FBI and was doing well in the process with them. The problem was he only had one active app at a time, and as you know that could mean years between submitting apps. He was in the middle of the process with FBI when time ran out because he reached his 37th birthday.

    Contrast that with another friend who had apps in with Postal, FBI, DEA, ATF, ICE, NCIS, AFOSI, a few OIGs, and probably some others he didn't tell me about. He got rejected by a couple and kept chugging along with the others. He took the first job offered, and pulled his apps with everyone else, except an OIG he was really interested in, and FBI. Eventually he turned down job offers from the remaining two, but at least he got in before his 37th birthday, and had options.

    When it came time for me start applying I took the same approach, I applied to every 1811 job that interested me. There is no downside to applying to multiple agencies, and it increases your odds of success.

    I applied back in March, got the letter for Phase I a couple of weeks ago. I am taking the test May 16. Hopefully with my LE experience and master's degree I can get somewhere in the process.
