  • Got the email that I passed the interview; I assume the next step is for them to contact me to mail in the security documents they gave me?

    Comment


  • How long was the wait between the security packet being sent in and the Polygraph information being sent? I know the portal goes at different speeds for people but I figured I'd get a general idea.

      mine was 6 weeks between submission of my first set of paperwork/equip and sitting for the poly. i say first because you will re-do all that background paperwork after medical clearance.

  • Finally! Got my notification of a successfully completed interview!

  • Stay the course I got my call and offer, I start soon. Applied Feb 2019 long process. But I hear it’s worth it. Got my top pick for location however, it wasn’t the most desirable location in country. It just happens to be where I wanted to get to

      How did the location selection go? Did they offer multiple options?

      Congrats!! How long was it for you between background and official offer?

      Probably varies since you’re a 2019 applicant and Covid closures.

  • Let me ask you guys something, why ATF? I’m set on it too but just curious your reasons for wanting to work with them over the others.

      After working a ton of more admin/command control jobs, I'm trying to curve back into more hands-on operational work of the agencies I've interviewed for ATF seems to have the best mix of street and tasks force work.

  • Got an update on my Portal for the BG/Poly so things are moving along. Be patient around this time with the holidays coming up things will slow down.

  • Just got an email regarding my vaccination status - however, haven’t heard anything in regards to my BG being initiated/reciprocated/finished or for the location preference sheet. Still justradio silence since late October

      I'd be curious to know the language in the vaccination email if you can divulge that...

  • Yeah man. I got the vaccination status e-mail last week. My BG was completed and submitted on the 29th of November. Soooo just playing the waiting game.

    Comment


    • Hopefully that means we will get a location sheet soon.

        How long did your BG investigation phase take after your SF-86 was accepted, reviewed and forwarded?

    • I’m not exactly sure. It’s close to going on two months I would say. I may still be in BG. Not exactly sure.

    • Yes. I did medical around august.

        Are you a 2020 or 2019 applicant? Think they are trying to get through the 2019 for the academy coming up for December and into 2022.

    • I started with the recruiter is 2019 but the formal application did not open up until 2020.

      • My current timeline - unsure as to why I haven’t been contacted in regards to the background investigation? Seems like everyone else has been contacted in the weeks following the medical exam. I have an active TS/SCI through my current agency, so if they had planned on waiving the background (one can be hopeful) I would have at least expected some form of communication.

        • I would assume they would be using your current BG. I really don’t know though. The only time I have been contacted is when the next step starts.

          Comment


          • Is it unheard of to get a polygraph on a Saturday? I am about to start a new job and the training has my weekdays completely booked for the next few months.

              If the polygraph is your next step, maybe reach out to your local ATF office and see if they have an in-house polygrapher that can accommodate you.
