Still in limbo. I emailed my HR POC Monday and she forwarded my email to Personnel Security Branch (PSB) asking about the status of my investigation; neither has responded back. Hurry up and wait forever I guess...

Just wanted to let everyone know that I received the following letter today:

We regret to inform you that you are no longer under consideration for the position of investigative analyst under job opportunity announcement...with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Choices among the many worthy candidates are difficult ones to make and we regret that we are unable to offer you a more favorable decision.

We would like to thank you for your interest in employment with ATF and we wish you well in your future endeavors.

Signed - Chief, Special Agent/IOI Recruitment, Diversity, and Hiring Division




I can only assume that the process took so long that they either did not have the budget to hire me or simply did not have the manpower allocations; my offer later stated that the job was contingent upon budgetary/hiring restrictions. Also, since the laws surrounding the clearance process stipulate that an individual whose clearance is denied must be given justification as to why their clearance was denied, I can only assume that they ran out of money or personnel billets.

Best of luck to everyone else.

I recommend maintaining contact with your selection official (hopefully you interviewed with someone?) So far only those with reciprocity have made it in but our ATF clearances were just granted. Don't give up yet, it should be soonish!
The background are bottle-necking, priority is going to 1811s 'cause they have training to go through.

I was also selected for an IA position in CA pending clearance 2000 and never.

For those that have already been hired how do you like it? After being selected for the IA position I was hired by another agency as an Investigator (Civil Law) that goes up to GS-12. I really want to work for the ATF and would be willing to take the cut in pay but I've heard some negative things about the IA position. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

New announcements on USAJOBS. MANY vacancies, too.

I wonder what my chances are for getting an interview, or at least referred? Does ATF hire people with just education? Anyone in the investigative analyst class met anyone with no experience?

I do have education in regards to SPSS, and other data/analysis.

Anyone else pending background investigation?

Here's my timeframe:
Applied Nov 2014

Interviewed Jan 2015

Mailed fingerprints and background paperwork to HR in February 2015

Submitted E-quip March 2015

Met with investigator in June 2015

Investigator informed me the end of June 2015 that my security clearance was being sent to the ajudication stage

Now it's September and I haven't heard a peep.

Just wondering if anyone else is waiting on background to clear as well? Any idea how long ajudication takes?

Hello, I'm new to Fed Soup in general and have only worked for one federal agency for a short time. I also am interested in the Investigative Analyst position, and I have submitted my application, however I have several questions that I'm hoping someone can answer before I make it to the interview stages. What hours do IA's usually work? I'm assuming that most information would at minimum need to be kept confidential and some according to the post may be TS clearance so I would think that would mean no tele-work, although I'm not opposed to evening/weekend tele-work if allowed and needed. I am an excellent researcher. While working for a commercial agency I have uncovered assets that applicants for Medicaid had that the State didn't even find, however, I have a school age child and limited daycare coverage after 6pm which limits my late nights at the office. Also, I am a quick learner and have confidence I can memorize any combination of firearm or explosive information, however, my private sector experience with firearms has been limited to some exposure while with friends/family and one NRA basic pistol course. Would this limited exposure and 6pm out-time preclude me from obtaining a position as an IA for the ATF?

Thank you,
Borealis

back in November 2018, they had an opening for an IA at their Manhattan location, it was open for 72 hrs. Thankfully, I got chosen for the position and now I'm going through the investigation process, which is handled in house.

Applied: 11/4/18
Interview: 01/3/19
FedEx/security packet: 02/5/19
E-Qip: 03/5/2019

their HR is very responsive and I've had no issues so far, even with the shutdown.

So now its just Hurry Up and Wait
