Does anybody know the daily schedule (generally) for an FPS Special Agent? Such as, do they work a 9-5, Monday through Friday or is it shift work including weekends and holidays. Obviously, as an 1811 you have to respond to incidents during off hours and LEAP issues, but I am asking about the regular daily life.

agents work mon-fri typically and come in between 7-9 and leave between 3-5(where I am we have multiple agents and they come in between those times normally), it will also depend on what the work load is obviously and circumstances so it could stray from those times occasionally.

Anyone from that job fair further in the process?



I was at the Waukegan fair in July of last year as well. Received a written offer for Region 5. Completed medical in November, just notified I was medically cleared the middle of February. Completed the drug screen last week, just waiting for more info.

Hi guys I got picked up at the FPS fair in New York on FT Hamilton March 15....I completed my medical and finger prints and now I'm standing by to standby.......The question I have is that I currently have a TS SCI Clearance from the Department of Defense and it does not expire until NOVEMBER 2017 would I have to go thru another BI for a secret for this 1811 position ?? And my 2nd question is do FPS officers get LEAP pay ? Thank you

You should not be required a second or new investigation due to reciprocity, however take that with a grain, however should you be required to complete a new background investigation, it would not take as long to complete. They may however run a new credit and local record checks.

you will have to undergo another clearance background. as baffling as it is DHS does not take BI investigations from other departments. you will have to go through the whole shabang again.

did you get hired as an Agent ? or Inspector? our 1811 agents get leap. our 1801 LEO/inspectors do not (yet).

Thank you for your response I got hired as an 1801 leo/Inspector..It is truly baffling my Top Secret SCI is still active I was hoping that DHS would take my clearance so I can go to FLETC. Thank you again I am really excited that I am finally in the hiring process.

I was in the same boat when i received my conditional offer letter back in July of last year. Since I too already had an active TS/SCI clearance through DOD I was required to update my SF86 and that was it. No interview, nobody came out to talk to references.Each area could conduct business differently but in my case this is how it was done.

I started the process in July 2015 and still have not received my official final offer. It's a process, but from what I am told a process worth the wait!

Good Luck

Thank you...I just spoke with someone from HR and they told me that security will take a look at my clearance and determine if I need to go through the process again..I completed my medical and dental just waiting on my drug test. I hope things get going soon.
