I know right? Is it possible that, gasp, someone might be interested in serving their country while also making a modestly comfortable living? Wanting to make more than an entry level admin assistant doesn't make you liable to be a Chinese spy lol

I see now that the insane rants from last night have been deleted!

This forum is supposed to be a place where we help each other and offer moral support. Everything that user wrote was rude, awful, and completely unhelpful. Just the opposite of what the FedSoup experience should be.

At that rate it would take me 6 years to reach grade 14. Any clarification as to how you move through the ranks would be appreciated. I'd like to have an exact idea of what my salary could look like at year 2,3,4 etc.... while working at the FBI.


You eligible for a grade promotion each year for example if you start as a 9 you'll go 9,11,12,13,14 there is no 8 or 10


Are there in-grade requirements? I thought I remember somebody had mentioned that you have to spend 2 years as a 12 to get 13 and three years as a 13 to get 14.

well the requirements are in your position description which your supervisor should give you so u know what u need to do while u in your current grade. n i guess so about the 12 and 13. I just became an 11 after being a 9 for a year so they probably right about the waiting 2 years part.

So I managed to get confirmation from my FO. I'm from the private sector so I'm not familiar with grade levels at all. Grade 8 and 10 do not exist for the Intelligence Analyst track. Also, from grades 7-12 you'll are eligible to submit a package on an annual basis for promotion. From GS-12 to GS-13 there is an in-grade requirement of two years before you are eligible to submit the package. GS-13 to GS-14 requires three years. Lastly, promotions from GS-12-GS-14 require approval from the Directorate of Intelligence.

Is anyone on here familiar with the "package" and what it entails? Just curious as to how many people actually manage to receive annual promotions at a regular basis or is it more likely that you are stuck at a certain grade level for years.

I got an email for a P3 invite at 5:57PM today and was on the portal to schedule in less than 5 minutes. The email claims there were 140 spots but that there are no available slots. There's no *****ing way right, that's gotta be a tech glitch? No way 140 spots filled up in 5 minutes.

I would double check but vacancies filled up within minutes for mine. Keep refreshing. Try on an actual computer.

Received my PIII (Boston) invite yesterday as well. I was fortunately able to reserve a slot before they apparently became unavailable.

A second email came out this morning around 0800 stating that the scheduling link has been fixed. If you ran into issues last night (7/31) I would try again ASAP.
