I doubt it will. I currently hold a Secret and completed the process for a TS (complete with poly) early this year for a USPIS position (that I ended up having to turn down)...they told me my existing clearance would not transfer.


Yeah no don't expect a speedy process. Different agencies have different clearance/in-depth investigation requirements and doesn't transfer over. In some instances, if you held a high position w/ poly, some agencies will wave it, IF still within the time frame required and I've seen this happened/applied to military folks.

futurefbiagent2018: Msdivers4's answer was generic. But it was generic for a reason. You can't and shouldn't divulge or disclose any specific information about the interview to anyone. As you can't and shouldn't divulge or disclose any information about the assessment tests.

Msdivers4: Excellent answer! Keep it vague and generic. Don't provide any specific information to anyone. Each applicant will find out in time what the interview and assessments are like.

The assessments and interview questions samples are on the website by the way. Also, your recruiter should provide you with specific information. In addition, glassdoor provides tons of questions DI were asked during the interview process. Chill bro. its not the NSA. LOL

In GearUp's defense the Non-disclosure's we sign are pretty specific. Therefore, not worth jeopardizing our integrity. It might seem trivial but worth mentioning.

Heads up, don’t ever insult gearup on this board. As someone who provides us a wealth of knowledge from direct experience, he’s earned his respect from all of us who have been here. Plus, I’d take the advice given. He’s never been wrong.

Also note, you’re asking to be approved for a top secret clearance but then asking for info we’ve been told we can’t share. Think about it.

You are free to use what ever information you find I guess. I wouldn't trust it though. But I seriously doubt any applicant is going to give you an unfair advantage.

2015 applicant here... Cassandra is correct. GearUp has given excellent advice and information. This forum is the best source of information. It's kept me up to date. Good luck to all, and have patience.

I’m not even going to argue with you. All I’m going to say is that for those of us who have made it to this point know what we can and can’t share. If you see info about interview questions, etc in other places, great. But when you’re told information is non public, you don’t share it.

I, like many others, come to this board for comradery. We’re all going through a long, hard process and it’s nice to have people, like GearUp, who work in the position we want to get into sharing what they can with us. It’s also nice to bond with our fellow future classmates through the shared experience. We’re going to be a team one day and attitudes and negativity aren’t going to help that.

Congrats to all who have gotten a preference sheet! I had a question, did anyone who has gotten a preference sheet happen to not meet with a background investigator? I ask that because I received the interim clearance paperwork a while back, but have never heard from any investigator. I just had a clearance completed back in May with another agency. Thanks in advance

I have not met with an investigator and have not received any interim paperwork. I have received a preference sheet for the last 2 or 3 classes and have not gotten an offer as of yet. Receiving a preference sheet is definitely not a guarantee of getting an offer.

I wonder how many of us 2015’s are out there waiting. My background was done back in February and the last I heard is that OPM has not sent it bac yet? Any more folks in my shoes?
