  • Does anyone have or know someone who has experience with Kroll?

    I received an email for a phone interview for the "Contract Special Investigator Position" with Kroll. However, there were a few things I had some concerns about. If anyone could tell me their experience or that of someone they know, I'd be thankful.

    1. You must give at least 20 hours a week to Kroll - Can I hold another job? and if not, how much can I expect to make a week working with Kroll?

    2. If you do not work there for 180 cases or 12 months, you must reimburse them for training costs. - What happens if I am offered a position with IEA, Border Patrol, or some agency prior to 12 months being up? I can't do both, right?

    Thanks for the help guys. Any input is appreciated. The job doesn't sound too tough but I don't want to get myself into something that I will regret for the next year.

    I don't know much about Kroll. Check out CACI and USIS. They both have contract investigators. I don't know why you couldn't do two jobs. I have talked to several investigators who work for three different companies on three different contracts. You can make pretty good money as a contractor. You may need experience to work as a contractor with USIS. They are hiring full time staff and are a pretty good company from what I hear. I was wondering if it is better to be an OPM investigator or work for one of the contract companies. Any opinions would be great. Thanks....

      your post a little odd to me. how did you find out about the opening at kroll? because i did a simple search of their website for investigator positions and everyone of your questions were answered.

      i have no idea what your background or your status is in the other positions you mentioned, but you may want to consider learning everything you can about these positions. when you get to the interview stage, you want to be as knowledgeable as possible. Not reading the website content in reference to the job you are applying for, may be a fatal mistake.

        Google should be your friend......

          I understand the position, but you didn't understand my questions. I was asking if I should take the job since they basically require you to be there for a year but state that you cannot hold a full-time job. Obviously, if the money isn't that great, it is not a good idea for me to take the job if they insist that I cannot hold another job. I think I'm just gonna pass on it and look for a full-time investigator position or just wait for the IEA or CBP process to complete.

            I am a full time special investigator with USIS. Met a few Kroll employees. I know we all do the same type of work. They do get $.98 cents per mile for traveling in their personal vehicles while working. It adds up quick.

            I can only speak for USIS. If USIS is hiring in your area, full time employees get a personal take home vehicle. Their new fleet consists of 2007 dodge chargers. with gas $3.00 per gallon, the unlimited gas is a nice benefit. Working as a background investigator is so so. ... hence I still want to get into law enforcement.

            not much more to say about the work other than boring and lonesome.
