Step negotiations for those who are currently Federal Government employees:


The GL 10 STEP Increase is for continuing Civilian Federal Government applicants with no break in service = These applicants leave their employer SATURDAY and then EOD at QUANTICO on SUNDAY. Military is NOT part of this as it is not Civilian Federal Government.

All applicant’s Conditional Job offers default to a 10-1 for everyone, even if someone is a federal civilian GS-13 or higher! The one to be concerned with is the final offer letter. Before a final offer we ask for an SF-75. This is explained in detail once an applicant passes their background.

Don’t quit until you have FINAL OFFER.

I wouldn't assume that you failed until you know for sure. I was told that I had issues with one of the questions and I thought that I failed, but ultimately I passed it. At worst, they may schedule you for another poly. Not fun, but as long as you're honest, you should be good. My medical was done the same week as my poly, which I understand is not typically how it's done, so I imagine it depends on the field office that you are working with. Good luck!

Same here. When I log into the SA Portal it is saying my current stage is Meet & Greet and wants me to schedule it. In reality, I completed my M&G over a month ago and scheduled and completed my written test a week ago. So far, the SA Portal has not updated to reflect that progress. So far I haven't been able to schedule anything through the Portal at all, but have done them through email prompts personally sent to me.

I think the fact that for my M&G everything was scheduled personally rather than through the portal probably didn't help, but I wasn't sure if that was how all processing centers did things or if that was unique to my own experience.

Gotta love that medical requested a personal statement from me but they had the date wrong... pretty sure nothing would have been required if they would have seen the procedure took place in 2012 not 2017. But whatever, submitted my personal statement and hopefully that's it... let's see if psych will require anything.. BLAH

FWIW - I was scheduled for my Medical 24 hours after my Poly.

Looking back on your experience with medical, do you wish you'd done anything differently to expedite it a bit? E.g. gotten certain shots ahead of time, brought certain documentation you didn't expect to need, etc.?


I don't think there was anything else I could have possibly taken or done ahead of time. Maybe a note from my doctor stating I have no issues with my shoulder... That is what they kicked back on, but it was outside the 5 year mark they ask for? They wrote me saying that it was done in 2017 when my submissions clearly state it was 2012. Other than that I took everything possible - recent eye exam (I don't wear contacts or glasses), letters from my docs regarding counseling, letter regarding BP (white coat syndrome w/o hypertension), letter regarding medical condition that requires daily meds. My current PCP updated all my vaccinations several months ago and combined all my records into hers, but I still took all the original vaccination records so that they could clearly see who actually did them and when. She did a titer for chickenpox too. I did a blood test for TB and submitted that along with everything else due to having taken the COVID vaccine to recently.

You aren't going to expedite anything really. It will take 2 weeks for them to review and do a kickback for personal statements or a doc follow-up. You have 30 days to submit, but usually can complete in a couple hours or days. After that you'll be cleared medical, and either referred or not referred to psych. I'm still waiting to see if they kick me over there given what I've already given them...

That is what I am wondering at this point as well. I've seen the different timelines across this thread and am not sure how long to even expect before getting the email for interviews, let alone to know how long post email the interview would be.

All good to know. So does that mean that now that you've taken the P2 written, you are just waiting for someone to reach out to schedule the P2 interview (however long that may take...)? If so, I wonder what kind of lead time they'll give you for the interview...

Hey Ladies and Gents,

Just starting this journey by passing my Phase I Test today. I am no stranger to the Good 'Ol Fashioned Government motto of "Hurry Up and Wait", so I know i am in for the long haul.

I did have a question, as I have heard conflicting information. Currently, I have a TS Clearance, as I am employed with a different DOJ agency. Will FBI transfer this over, or do they complete a whole new background on their own?

any info is appreciated!

That's what I figured... Oh well, thought I might cut off a few months of the process.

If you’re lucky though, which I was...your SF-86 pretty much auto-populates if you’ve had a reinvestigation/re-up fairly recently.

Well I took the written part on April 12 and my AC JUST emailed me yesterday stating that the dates were in the portal. It has a variety of dates to chose from so you can pick which one is best for you. Mine isn't until July, there were earlier dates but I pushed it out for personal reasons.

I don't know that everyone gets a ranking email anymore. You've been rated competitive if you are invited to Phase 2. I didn't get one this time around... It seemed the determination was made by my local field office rather than HQ. In the past HQ sends an email stating you are either competitive or non-competitive after the meet & greet and then you would be referred to phase 2 or locked out from applying for a year.

WRT titer test which I took on your
Advice and now have the results.. now I need to submit the results along with Covid shots and vaccines shots to FBI medical via email? Or did you physically give to your AC to give to medical to be scanned and email.
Also, it sounds like you never needed to go back to the medical clinic and that all requests for more information were sent via email? Am I correct?


Have you had your FBI medical appointment yet?
