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)

Perhaps you are working for the DHS or interested in working for the DHS. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DHS.

I'm surprised is taking this long to get my EOD, I'm prior military (USMC) and current fed within DHS for the last 6 years...



That is interesting considering you are currently fed. Hopefully you can get an EOD soon.

Same here, for the PSC location. I have not been asked to submit an essay yet.


Neither have I. I would assume we did well enough to move foward.


tknore & PrimaDawna,

Same and same for PSC. I was asked to give 2 references by Mon/ haven’t heard anything about the writing assignment... but I believe I’ve read in previous posts that not everyone does a writing assessment... I’m guessing just like not everyone had the 3 USAhire assessments and/or face-to-face interviews, and the orders are somewhat different. Ahhh well, I’m down for whatever surprises are thrown at me.;) I hope we all make it through!!!


Interesting how each location seems to do their own hiring process. Good luck to all of us!!!

That's actually not that much time. I came from DHS (HSI) with a TS to USCIS and it took about 8 weeks to finally get the all clear to EOD. Hang in there, it's coming :)

PrimaDawna & tknore,

Same here, but only one of my references has confirmed it. I’m not sure if the other one just hadn’t gotten back to me yet or they didn’t contact him..
