I just talked to my field office and was told not to reapply and that those who passed PII in January should hear back within a month or so.

If nothing after a month then I've to call back an ask about reapplying after the 2019 IASP opens.


Mind saying which field office? Maybe I should reach out to mine and see, but another months wait just to hear about PIII makes me worry that it'll be a "you weren't selected try again" email since it lines right up with when applications open up for 2019.


If you are comfortable, I would email Teresa Tamburrino and see what she recommends.

The PSI is just an interview to go over the SF-86 and ask any follow up questions regarding anything you disclosed. Its lengthy but nothing to stress about.

I think it depends on the FO but you might have your drug test that day.

The poly will be on a separate day as its almost as long as the PSI. Both last a few hours.

Hey, haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd give a quick update on my progress.

Thus far, everything is still on track and I'm getting settled in for the long wait. Patience really is the name of the game here, for better or worse, and I really hope that things go quickly for all of us.

Hope everyone else is doing okay no matter what stage ya'll are in currently! :)

I'm in the same boat. Did anyone call you regarding calling your contacts? My investigator started calling my references last week. Anybody have some insight as to where I am in the background? Is it still early stages?

Hey guys, I'm new here! Hope the process is going smoothly for everyone so far. I'm doing my PSI next week, but haven't had my Poly yet. Did y'all do your Poly first or did you do it right after the PSI?

I think that you're a bit ahead of some of us here who got out CJO this month are still waiting to do our poly, but I imagine that all depends on your history, foreign travel, foreign relationships, etc. The information packet suggests 6-18 months as a rough guide, but notes that it can be longer if you have a rich and interesting history. I'm not expecting mine to take as long as some others' since I have led a very, very boring and completely domestic life 😅

I did my PSI earlier this week and my poly will be next. I am in the middle of a move, so my AC just forwarded my info to my next FO and I will do my poly when I get there.

Could someone on here clarify how grade promotions work in the federal government? Specifically for the Intelligence Analyst role? For example the hiring for this position were for Grade 7 and 9. Does that mean there is no grade 8 for the position? I would start at a grade 9, does that mean I have to go through grades 9,10,11,12,13 and 14? At that rate it would take me 6 years to reach grade 14. Any clarification as to how you move through the ranks would be appreciated. I'd like to have an exact idea of what my salary could look like at year 2,3,4 etc.... while working at the FBI.

You eligible for a grade promotion each year for example if you start as a 9 you'll go 9,11,12,13,14 there is no 8 or 10

You accepted a CJO near four months ago and you are just now asking this question? Let me guess, you're a millennial? As a millennial myself, I find it so disappointing that so many of my peers justify the negative stereotypes cornering our generation.

Here is the thing. A US Senator makes $174,000 a year. The President of the United States makes $400,000 year. Just to give you some perspective.

Now, ask yourself this question - what do you suppose the odds are, as a civil servant, you will make as much or more as a sitting US Senator?

If you think the intelligence community gives a damn about making you wealthy, you are in for a big big BIG surprise. In fact, I would question the loyalty and patriotism of someone who put such concerns over country.... and I think you will find that whining about "It could take me six years to reach grade 14!" is going to be VERY ill received... and it will probably put you on an internal watch list of people who might possibly turn disloyal for the right amount of money.

As a GS-7, you will start out making around $23/hour gross. Notice I said GROSS. After your health insurance deductions, taxes, mandatory FERS contribution, etc, you will be netting around $15/hour average. In other words, as much as your local Wal-Mart stocker. GS-9 will put you at $28/hour gross. After said deductions, about $20/hour net; about as much as your local Wal-Mart department manager.

And as for "six years to reach grade 14!" try about 15-30 years IF you are an all star analyst. FYI, grade 14 is WELL into senior management. There are few of those spots, and they are only going to those who merit it.

If all of this is a problem for you, then I suggest you go to corporate America where getting rich is the name of the game. This is the WRONG field to be in if you want to get rich quick.

That's weird, I just thought they wanted to know how much and in what time frame to expect their salary to increase, presumably for long-term planning. Which part sounded like whining to you?

Yep, spot on. It would be a fairly large pay reduction for me to take the role so I just wanted some clarification. I enjoy planning finances years in advance.

This is the same guy who freaked out about Criminal Justice majors then promptly deleted his reply. I’m sure he’s going to do the same again.

You didn't have to bite the dudes head off he was just asking a simple question


It was a simple question if he was delivering mail for the postal service or driving Uber. For someone holding a top secret SCI clearance whining about wanting lots of money fast, it's a national security risk that puts the security of the nation and lives of our citizens at risk. The vast majority of leaks of top secret information are motivated by money. Uncle Sam may not be willing to pay him the $50/hour he thinks he is entitled to, but you can be damn sure the Chinese government would.

And it's better someone slaps him in the face as to the reality of his income prospects in the IC now, as well as the reality he should not expect to get rich, rather than he make a dumb choice and end up facing espionage charges later.

Don't like him get to you dude. It's all good you were just asking a question that's all. You'll still b making 6 figures when you hit GS-13 step 2 just be good at your job work hard and your supervisor won't have no problems with promoting you once you eligible for your TIG to the next level.
