Well, just a quick update. As I posted yesterday, I received the same letter as Deezy. I spoke to HRRD, as I was under the impression that I had cleared suitability last Fall, as I have received two preference sheets since then. They explained that I only “tentatively” cleared suitability, and they were waiting for my full background to come back before making a final decision. Unfortunately, that decision was not in my favor. It’s devastating after spending 24+ months in the hiring process. I am a 13-year former Federal law-enforcement officer who only left my career in order to be the caregiver for a dying family member. The fact that they make it so difficult to return to Federal employment is very unfair.

I’m so sorry. Did they give you a reason like Deezy?

Thank you. They cited a “non-selection action” under 5 CFR 731.203 (b) in the letter, but they couldn’t or wouldn’t elaborate on the telephone or email correspondence as to the specific reason.

To Deezy and sdiceman, I hope this just means something better is out there for you. Something you wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience if you got this job. I can’t imagine the disappointment and I’m so sorry to hear all this time and anticipation was in vain.

Actually, because of the scrutiny into nearly every aspect of my life I've improved my financial situation immensely and improved my health substantially. As a result I found the woman of my dreams. Good luck to all of you. I hope, win or lose, you come out better!

I am sorry to hear that. We may not know the full story but it sure doesn't leave a lot of hope out there. Not that hope is anything you're suppose to display when trying to attain this job. Without having all the details, I can say, it seems as though this job is more extra in their hiring process than with others that carry weapons and have more responsibilities. Its interesting.

Someone who takes these kinds of lemons and makes lemonade is undoubtedly going to do well in life. Victory awaits! Good luck!

Very sorry to hear that folks didn't get selected. It's a tough job to get. There are, currently, less than 500 DI's worldwide. Our authorized DI staffing level isn't too much higher so the process is very very selective. DEA get thousands of applications for only a few vacancies. If you hadn't noticed the last announcement would close before the actual close date once 4,000 applications had been filed. Its tough to get the "thanks but no thanks" e-mail but not everyone can get selected. Just not enough vacancies.
