I'm seeing several Pre-Q PFTs... all around the same background timeline. I have mine Friday! :)

Hello everyone,

New to the board here. Threw my name back in the process after failing P2 about a year and a half ago. I wish I had more insight into the contributing factor of me failing but regardless, my work/life experience has only gone up since then. I hope the restart to my process is quick and that I have much better success on my final attempt whenever it may be.

Just an update for anyone curious or going through the same point of the process.

I received this email, "Please be advised that the Phase II interview slots will be open on or about the first week of May for scheduling."

So I will the schedule for Phase II interview soon, I actually want to take at the end of May until the middle of June if possible. Going to have a minor surgery but do NOT want to drop out of the process.

The run continues to be the hardest part, but I also feel the most confident about improved performance on test day for it, considering my routine.


Nice!

For those of us who won't make it to the June class. The last 2 of the year are Aug 1-Dec 22 and Sept 26-Feb something (sorry don't remember the end date on that one).

Sooooooooo great information and gives us hope maybe we can make the September and those shooting for June (good 🍀 🤞🏾)

So I have my PSI scheduled as of last night.
Updated timeline:
Phase II - 10/15/19
CJO- 4/13/21
SF-86 Submitted - 4/15/21
PSI- 5/6/21
Poly- 6/8/21
Let’s keep rolling…. 🥁 🥁
PFT dates 7/8, 8/12, 9/9 (not scheduled) these are dates for my region

I have an active current secret clearance, military retiree(I know it has nothing to do with FBI process)

My question is based on the experience on this forum what are my chances (Jim Carey voice) for the September class?

Everything, except for the run, three times. I wrote a more detailed routine a couple pages back, but that's the gist of it. One thing I think people overlook is the 5 minute break. Acclimating yourself to recovery within a short time frame is important when bouncing from more anaerobic to more aerobic activity.

They won't start the BI until after the poly. Mine didn't start until after medical. I did the Poly at the beginning of March, medical was mid April and BI was the end of this month.... My AC seemed to say the time frame for getting into a class is highly dependent on how quickly you clear medical (typical is a month). So if I'm cleared medical by the end of May, that definitely gives enough time for adjudication before August.
Don't schedule the PT until you're told. You won't want to take it in July and then have to take it again before Sept class. Those dates could very well change too, so just wait until they say we need you to take a PFT because we are looking to put you in this class.

When I did it there were 6 of us taking it. They had us go in groups of 2. For each event with a 5 minute break in between except the 1.5 mile. That they had everyone start at once. We also used a fence to hold our feet instead of a person which I found really helpful. Felt much easier that way for me. Masks were to be on unless you were actively doing an event.

Great info. I was under the impression that you needed a Pre-Q PFT within 120 days so for anyone in the September (not grandfathered) would mean anyone after May 26 would be suffice.

You're correct. 120 days is accurate. It used to be 90, however, I would take it when they advise still in-case there is some unforeseen hangup. IF they are telling you the Sept class, they will likely have you do one in August. They do try to get it close to the call as people tend to pass the Pre-Q and get lazy before the one at Q. If it is any insight - I took one a month before hiring call with the DEA, as did everyone in said class, 7 washed out on the PFT at Q and were sent home in the first week. DEA does the SAME PFT, except they have 10min breaks instead of 5 with the same 12pt requirement.

Hey guys. Im a vet and about to graduate college here in a few weeks. I've been working through my resume and I have a quick question... is there a length requirement? I am basing mine of the template provided obviously, but im providing examples for each core comp. for each of my jobs and training, and its about 13 pages right now and im not done. Should I trim stuff down or is it expected to be a novel? lol. thanks all, looking forward and nervous for the process.

Fun fact #1: during normal/non-COVID graduation ceremonies at Q, you are allowed to bring two guests to in-person graduation. This was confirmed by my AC a few days ago.

Fun fact #2: The June Q class will be finalized "soon" and final offers should be going out within the next week or so. Also confirmed by my AC.

Those were fun to read, right?

Good day and congrats on the forthcoming graduation! Sounds like you have a lot of great content. With extensive work experience and core competency stories, mine came out to roughly 5.5 pages after some significant editing. I would say brevity is important on this particular resume and to, obviously, follow the format which you are.

Other people here may disagree, but anything over eight pages may seem excessive. I did one competency story per experience. For example, I did my Collaboration story within my IT experience; my Leadership story within my mil experience, etc. I do not believe there is a hard resume-length requirement but this could have changed since I initially applied in July of 2019.

I hope this was helpful in some way!

I asked about this during the M&G (the group informational one). I was told that it can definitely be longer than the 1-2 pages you usually see in industry. My own is around 3 pages while following their format. I think the only danger with an 18 page resume is that your actual qualifications get lost in the noise. With that said, I'd recommend trying trim down the language and be as succinct as possible while getting your points across. Even just doing that might cut the length of the resume in half while retaining all the relevant/important stuff honestly.


Good input and thank you for the responses. Back to editing.
