NSA timeline

Applied 1/15/19
Phone interview request 1/22/19
Phone interview 1/29/19
Operational interview scheduled 2/27/19
Operational interview 3/29/19
CJO call received 4/12/19
CJO paperwork received 4/19/19
eQIP received 6/21/19
eQIP submitted 6/22/19
Request for more information/ info submitted 6/24/19

Had to call ICHIRES to get my eQIP which is why there was such a delay. This is for one of the developmental positions in the Cyber program, I don’t know if that makes a difference in clearance time. No foreign contacts, took a cruise to the Caribbean three years ago which is my only foreign travel.

Where are you guys seeing the soft credit pulls? Credit Karma and Experian only show hard inquiries.

You have to pull your complete credit report. My credit got pulled twice -- once when they started processing my SF86, and then another time on the day that I met the investigator (which was a few months later).

Turns out they checked on 6/27, so right after I submitted it. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Been a lurker ever since I applied and figured I can share my timeline as well.

1/19 - applied for a STEM position
2/19 - Scheduled proficiency exam
3/19 - Took Exam/Passed exam
3/19 - Received CJO
4/19 - Request to fill out SF-86 on e-QUIP/Request for revision once
5/19 - Was contacted by BI
6/19 - Met with investigator
6/19 - Scheduled Operational Interviews/Psych Assessment/Poly
7/19 - Operational Interviews/Psych Assessment/Poly

Not going to lie, I'm freaking out a bit over these upcoming interviews and polygraph. I have nothing to hide on the poly so I'm not as worried over that as I am the interviews. They said I need to solve at least one 'toy problem' in front of them and I have no idea what that will be like and am terrified I'll mess everything up. This is my dream job and has been for many years. I really want to do this right!

308 days since I applied for the position, and 200 days since I have submitted my SF86.

Currently in that "holding" phase. Haven't heard from an investigator, and still getting cut and paste "You should hear something in 3 to 5 months" emails from my (albeit wonderful) recruiter.

Holding out on bugging anyone until 255days. Seems like a reasonable amount of silence before asking questions again.

Submitted SF86 in Jan 2018, investigation finished in August.

Just barely contacted to do a couple days of "security interviews" in a month. Is this the poly/psych?

They should send an email with details if it’s poly psych.
Was it a scheduler or your BI?

Scheduler. My investigator said back in August that he had finished and sent it on.

Hi everyone,

I Earlier posted my timeline stating I had been scheduled for poly and psych eval. Has anyone failed the 1st poly from a false positive and passed the second one answering the same? I took 1st poly and apparently I was found to be lying on 2 questions when I was answering honestly.
My main question is however, when you took you second poly, do you redo the entire poly (both counterintelligence and lifestyle) or just the one you had issues with?

Thanks

Here is my timeline:

11/18 - Applied to STEM position
12/18 - Phone interview
01/19 - Operational interview
02/19 - Informed about CJO
03/19 - Official CJO
03/19 - Request for further information
04/19 - Security reviewing forms
05/19 - Notified that I am still processing.
07/19 - Called NSA ICHIRES. Told that I am in security processing and background investigation stage.

Does this mean my background investigation has already started? A few days before I called ICHIRES, my recruiter said he was still waiting on hearing back from security on the review of the additional information.
I have also not yet been contacted by a BI, or had poly/psych scheduled.

Just got back from my Polygraph. It was an absolute N I G H T M A R E. 4 hours in a room with wires attached to 4 different parts of your body, whole time being accused that I was lying about the drug use question... and I have never done drugs in my life!!!! Never felt so deceived/cheated/disrespected in my entire life, almost started tearing up around the 4th hour of begging them to do a drug test on me and that I was not lying. I also do not know if when you take the second if they skip everything else and just ask you the one they didn't believe you in or they do the whole thing over again. Either way, it's a sham and it sucks.

The best story I've heard was the guy who went home after the poly and his wife asked him, how was it?

He said, "YOUR HUSBAND'S A DRUG DEALER AND I NEVER KNEW IT!!!"

Just got done 2nd poly (Passed).
In others experience, how long after poly have you learned out your adjudication decision?

Did you find the second Poly to be a lot better than the second in terms of the overall experience? (apparently most people fail first and pass the second from what i've seen). My first one, and the first one of a couple of school buddies of mine was terrible.
