Congratulations!!! Did your recruiter call you or one of the assistants?

I mean it’s really case by case. For example:

Applied: 08/18
Exam: 10/18
Passed Notification: 11/18
Interview: 03/19
Drug Forms: 04/19
Crickets: 04/19-11/19
Medical and Drug Test: 11/19
Background: 01/20
Crickets: 01/20-09/20
Preference Sheet: 09/20

Now I’m still waiting to hear whether I got into the January 2021 academy. I know of one person on this forum (with a similar timeline to mine) who got the call for that academy. Most of us are still waiting and from what I was told we won’t know if we didn’t make it. Staying positive though and hoping for a call!

Like Navy said it depends case by case. You could be waiting another 2 years easily. I applied 2017 and still haven’t made a class. I cleared background/hiring board in 2019. I received a preference sheet for last Feb 2020 class and did not get placed. I am waiting to see if I get placed in this class. There are a few of us still left who applied in 2017 and have not made a class yet. We even had to redo medical since it expired. So you could get lucky and get placed right away or you could have a long road like some of us; for whatever reason wait longer. 🤷‍♀️

Very true. 8/18 applicant, still waiting on eQIP and BI (although HR said I am currently in BG status)

I got the official form for interim top secret clearance yesterday. It was a letter that explained what it is and if they find something they can kick you out. You have to decide on either taking the interim clearance or waiting another 12-24 months for the background investigation to complete.

Here's to hoping this is preceding an offer!

Lol. I had over 150 numbers blocked. I unblocked them all because I figured if I got the call it would come from a weird number. Never mind the fact that the blocked numbers were all confirmed spam. If the DEA wants to offer me the job and extend my car warranty then so be it!

That’s hilarious. It came up on my caller ID as “I icann” and upon further investigation it was a 202 area code. And it was later in the afternoon, like 4pm est. I think my spam blocker tried to block, but they called back!

Thanks for the heads up! First time in my life where I'll start to get excited for spam calls instead of cussing and hitting ignore lol. Congratulations!!!

Does anyone have an idea if BG investigations are done with preference to current position and/or experience? Asking because I am an 8/18 applicant, only waiting on BI, and have been told by HR that I'm in "background investigation status", but I have NOT been contacted by an investigator yet. Does this sound correct? I am currently working in a government position. I understand patience is a virtue here, but have noticed others who had applied after me moving more quickly through the process.
Thanks in advance and Congratulations to all that are moving forward!
Happy Holidays to all!

I was never contacted by a BI after I filled out the current equip in 6/20 and even after I sent in the updated form last month. I had a T5 done on me in 10/2018 for my current job. There hasn’t been too much change since then.
