Haha no SVR shens, it was an office to office call. Yes she was an employee. Basically she asked questions about my background, told me what the position was, I asked questions about it, she answered them, and then asked me if I would be interested in doing it. I said yes because the specific billet sounds like something of a hybrid between the CJOs I received and I think I'd really enjoy it.

A buddy of mine went through a similar process about a year ago, also a contractor turned gov. After he ended up on the cleared list, he had an "internal" interview which was basically branch heads trying to get a feel for a potential candidate to see how he would be before said branch heads throw names against open billets. They already knew him from his time as a contractor, so it was admittedly incestuous. Mine felt like less of an interview and more like an advertisement. After that, the rest is up to OHR and who knows how long that will take.

I'm guessing this isn't something done with everybody, probably just with people who already have access to cleared spaces? I'm not sure.

The part that confused me was the clearance bit. I asked my company FSO if my clearance was updated in JPAS, he said no. Yet I'm on the gov's cleared list? Maybe JPAS is out of date or something. I don't know but assume that I'm good?

I was also contacted by a "prospective supervisor" who made it clear it was not an offer. He just wanted to go over a couple of things on my resume, which had apparently been circulated among hiring managers after I cleared.

He said that HR would decide if and when any offer would be made, and they could decide that some other office had a higher priority and they might not extend the offer from his shop. He also said that I might not be contacted by any other hiring manager but could still get an offer from a different office.

It has been a couple weeks now since that phone call and nothing yet... the wheels of HR move slowly.

By the way did you know that the Russian acronym for SVR looks exactly like CBP (Customs and Border Protection)? Fun fact :)

How disappointing, they called twice and left a message on my cellphone about my FJO but of course can't have my cell in the facility and when I called back no one answers :(

I guess I'll have to wait until Monday..

At least they didn't call to extend a suitability rejection :D Congratulations!


Ha true! I gave them my work number and they've called me at work and yet they didn't this time. Damn it!

Congrats, vegeta. It's good to know you're in the pipeline.

Just learned today that my clearance is still stuck in adjudications. Yet I was in the "Cleared Hiring Pool" as of 2 weeks ago, for whatever reason. I'm just going to act like I never applied and stop thinking about it, it's a huge distraction to my personal life and I'm getting stressed out.

Cheers everyone, best of luck over the next few months.

Thanks! Multiple offers and being a former fed caused some heartburn for HR lol. I guess I'll see how it all shook up Monday. Atleast I know for a fact they completed what took so long and it's a FJO

Ok thanks for the info. I know the wait has been really long and to be so close. Your process seems to have gone by pretty quickly compared to others I've seen. We're you prior military?

It would've been faster if they hadn't lost my SF86 twice and waited months to let me know, oh CPC. Yes, I was ex-military two branches, former fed worker, and current contractor for the IC.. im looking forward to a change, challenge, and new scenery.

I just came out to check my phone again, another missed call and message but they never pick up the phone when I callback. So frustrating, I've been calling since 7 CST and no pickup the moment I go in she calls. I've even left a message saying call me on my work number, nothing.. I feel like she enjoys the phone tag.

VEGETA327: I've applied to the Baltimore/DC hiring event. I'm prior military, former FBI, gone contractor for more money but looking to go federal again. I'm cleared, FS poly, TS/SCI. I seen that you had to take a poly. Did you already take one? I'm just wondering if I'll need to since I already did with the FBI about a year ago and my TS is current/active. Thanks!

You will have to take the poly and get cleared all over again with DIA. From what I understand DIA does not do any crossover on polygraphs and or clearance investigations. I have had three top secret clearances one in the military and two federal and I sill had to go through DIA clearance process it has taken just at a year to get cleared and received my FJO. DIA does not take a polygraph from any other agency.

How long do you have to accept the FJO/have them attempt to contact you before the offer is rescinded. I'm out of the country for a week and don't have access to my voicemail. It'd be just my luck for them to call me today and I won't know until I get back the following week. Of course, I don't have a contact in HR to notify them of my travel.

Don't know how long you have before they rescind but the dates they offer for start date went over a span of 60 days! That is in align with most other federal agencies that normally give you anywhere from two weeks to two months to start and I'm sure that you can request a extension as well! Not specific to DIA but I do know from a Federal HR perspective that when an individual has been selected for a position that HR rep needs a rejection of the offer by the applicant and usually in writing before they rescind an offer!

Disappointing, I called the number and extension she provided every 15-30 minutes until I just walked out the door 1700 CST and no answer. There's not much I can do at this point, I can't just take the day off and sit by a phone and wait for her to call my cell phone despite leaving multiple voice messages and emails saying call me at my work number. They've called me at my work before, obviously if I'm not answering try another method. Sorry for my vent, I'm heading to the gym now lol. Truely dissapointed..
