I completed a references document that was sent to me by HR in June, and they contacted the work references I listed there. Then I had to provide all that info again as part of the eQIP in August, but the only people I know of that the background investigator has contacted are personal references. I've been in the background process for about five months now, but haven't gotten any calls or requests for more information in about two months, so I'm not really sure where I stand at this point. I did reach out to HR in December though, and they basically said I was still in the background phase and they had no idea when it would be completed. As far as I understand, next step after background is preference sheet. Long process for sure.

After my work references were contacted, it was about a month later that I got the preference sheet. FYI-I provided my work references 2 times during the entire application process (mine was a 3 year process, BTW), however, my work references were only contacted once.

How long does It take to hear back about an email to set up a proctored test from the time the questionnaire was taken?

The recent DI posting said interviews are tentatively scheduled for March. I’m not sure if That will actually happen but I hope to get an email about the test soon I completed the questionnaire two weeks ago!

I just checked my announcement to see if it said when. It listed a month but that wasn't when they did interviews. lol. They use that word "tentative" for everything. They are govt after all.

This was my timeline. These timeframes may be different from what you may experience. I hope this helps!


Applied May 2018
Tested July 2018
Panel Interview April 2019
Drug and Medical Tests/Exams November/December 2019
Completed my Eqip online January 2020
Interview for background March 2020 (2 days before everything shut down for COVID)
Preference sheet April 2021
Final offer May 14, 2021

If I remember correctly, after I applied, it took maybe about a month and half to get an email about scheduling the test I took in July 2018.

Anyone have any knowledge about how far in advance they send out preference sheets for academy? I’m guessing the earliest the next one will be is this summer.

The next academy is currently scheduled for June. From previous postings, it looks like the EARLIEST people get preference sheets is about a month prior to academy. But there have been "take XYZ location or leave it" phone calls on a Friday afternoon when the academy begins that Monday.
