DHS

The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 230,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. [Their] duties are wide-ranging, but [their] goal is clear: keeping America safe. (source: www.dhs.gov)

I remember completing some sort of writing exercise within a few days of completing the application on USAjobs. IIRC, I received an email that directed me to a website the timed essay and situational questions.

Happy holidays~!

I have a general question concerning the government shutdown.

What is the impact of the government shutdown on the ISOs?

Are current ISOs not going to work? or are they working without pay until government reopens? or are they furloughed?

Thank you in advance.

USCIS is fee based which means the shutdown doesnt affect us. We work and get paid like normal.

Can anyone verify this? ISO’s will still get paid on a regularly scheduled pay day? Isn’t the office in charge of paying us is shutdown? But I don’t know. I’m new.

Yes, everyone is working, everyone is getting paid.

Hi all,

Here is my status, it's been a bit of a process, but it is all moving forward now:

1/2/19 - Contacted by Personnel Security Assistant, noted my case has been pulled, expect an AEOD decision within 20 days
12/21/18 - Response to inquiry on status notes 8 week time frame on AEOD decisions due to backlog
11/26/18 - E-QIP submitted/fingerprints mailed
11/20/18 - Request for SF-86/fingerprints
11/14/18 - Drug screen submitted
11/13/18 - Request for drug-screen
11/8/18 - TO for ISO II received by email
11/2/18 - Phone interview
10/31/18 - Interview offered
10/11/18 - Decision overturned, referred to hiring manager
10/11/18 - HROC supervisor indicated real reason not referred due ineligibility as former excepted service with State, appealed providing documentation on eligibility (very obscure and hard to find legal authority)
10/9/18 - Inquired with HROC on possible referral, told not among top applicants, appealed
10/4/18 - Notified tentatively eligible
9/19/18 - ISO II position closes on USAJOBS

As I prepare to - hopefully - start within the next few months, I would appreciate any information on what overtime typically looks like in field offices so our family can start restructuring preparing a bit.

Is it required or optional?
How many hours weekly/monthly is the norm?
Is there flexibility as to when or how often it is performed?
Is it paid (I know this may seem like a silly question, but I have not been paid for overtime as an exempt employee in most of my jobs including federal)?

Thanks for any tidbits that you can share!

Happy New Year and best of luck to everyone waiting on here!

I was wondering if anyone had any information as to the normal timeframe to receive approval from OSI regarding the completed background investigation? I was informed that OPM completed the investigation approximately 32 days ago and that the case is currently “in process.” I understand that each case is unique, but I was hoping to have a general idea of how long the adjudication might take. Any insight would be welcome.

Hello everyone,

I've been waiting for my EOD for over 2 months now and was wondering how long was the wait for everyone? The most concerning question I have is, how long does the final adjudication stage take? I heard for some people it takes a week and for others it took months depending on the case.

Has anyone heard anything on ISO posting CIS-PJN-10336979-NBC in Lee's Summit, MO? It closed 10/26/18. I'm new to the fed gov job world and I've applied, was referred and completed the Wonderlic test but it's been radio silence since then (first of January). The announcement said "many" vacancies at this location so I'm not sure if they're just collecting resumes or if there are legit positions available.

I know several people that applied in October and are already working but they were all USCIS employees before they got this job. Not sure if there were 2 announcements (one internal one open to the public).

Anyone else get a referral for CIS-10384542-MIA or CIS-10391382-MIA in Miami? Both jobs closed in January and I got my referral February 7 and February 12th.
