I just called the DEA HQ HR line at 202-307-4148. The good news is I passed the panel assessment (done Mid-November 2018) and was recommended for hiring!!!! The bad news is the next step, getting the drug questionnaire and disclosures will be delayed due to the shutdown. Apparently the service that handles that step is furloughed.

In other news the Diversion Academy schedule has not changed and classes will continue.

I believe I applied to the same posting as you. I took my proctored exam during the first week of October. I spoke with HR approximately 2 hours ago and found out that I passed my test, but I was told they are still evaluating who the most qualified candidates are in order to start sending out invites for an interview. I am currently working as a contractor with the DEA so I am quickly learning how slow some of these processes are.

Hello all -

Have been lurking and waiting for Federal Soup to approve my registration since 2/6 in order to share my timeline and post other useful information. I am a May 2018 applicant, I applied to the Merit Promotion announcement: 5/25/2018 to 06/04/2018. My timeline is as follows:

6/4/2018: Applied
6/4/2018: Received acknowledge letter
6/6/2019: On-line assessment completed
7/3/2018: Invitation for proctored exam
7/21/2018: Proctored Exam completion
10/26/3018: E-mail for interview east coast (mid-Atlantic area)
11/6/2018: Interviewed:
1/26/2019: HRRD recruitment E-mail for drug questionnaire and disclosure form
2/6/2019: Tentative offer letter
2/6/2019: Accepted tentative offer
Medical and Drug (pending e-mail invitation)

I would like to note that I am currently a fed with a TS/SCI. I inquired as to the process for this since my latest was adjudicated by OPM/DOJ on 11/2017. There is a possibility of getting a reciprocity for this process but I am unsure yet. As soon as I know, I will let you all know in case you are in the same boat as I.

Good morning,

I have e-mailed my actual HRRD POC and I asked her about the classes as well as the looming shutdown and how the process may be halted or slowed down. Here are her answers:

1) Diversion, within the DEA, is not affected by the shutdown. So, HRRD will continue to work through the shutdown - if one actually occurs. Only thing which may slowdown, a bit and not too much, is suitability (BI arena). While she did not specify why this will be the case, from my experience and what I know, this will be due because BI area falls within OPM and OPM does get affected by a shutdown. Let's hope that a shutdown does not occur, but if it does, that it is short lived.

2) The most important, academy classes. I have been seeing, in a lot of forums concerning DI, that "someone" said that the classes are "full." All right, this is what I got from her concerning FY19 and FY20 academies. So, the academies - included the next one in April - are not filled yet. There is a board/panel, that looks at all of the information provided and determines who will be chosen to the next class to be filled. They have not convened for the academy in April since February is still young. So, when a person will be placed in an academy their paperwork has gone through that board and there is an updated list of available locations. Which brings me to third point...

3) I have seen that many people are asking why their list preference has be requested more than once. Evidently, for each class they revisit the locations. I am logically concluding that as people graduate academies and go to the field, and retirement, the lists of areas available are updated. If it is anything like my current agency, they keep rotating and updating the locations to ensure that not one field division has more new people than others. There has to be a level of experience.

4) I am unsure about the announcements you all applied to, but, I am excited that the position I applied for has "relocation expenses" covered. That is good news, means, those positions have that monies allotted for it. Should relieve some financial burden to some.

5) Lastly, I wanted to speak about active clearances for some of us. According to my POC, whether a clearance will be reciprocated - which is not unheard of in the government or for DEA - well, if a clearance (TS/SCI) and the SSBI is accepted and/or how much will be accepted, is determined by suitability and if the current holding agency releases the information to DEA. So, if you are a current federal employee with a background, let us hope that it is reciprocated and that your agency releases it. I am hoping mine does since I have a fullscope which was recently adjudicated.

6) A round of e-mails - for physical, drug, and BI - will be sent out this week. So, things are still moving along ladies and gentlemen. Well, I hope this helps some of you all. Especially, help ease down any concerns or questions about shutdown and academy dates.

Good morning all!

At 08:16am on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, I received my official "COE" letter as well as the welcome for the OnBoarding Manager Selectee registration. I have six (6) forms to fill-out and return before a due date of 02/16/2019, for the next step.

Things are most definitely moving along guys and gals. Who else has gotten this e-mail message?

I went for my interview on Thursday. Wanted to let everyone know that it was for the Intelligence Research Specialist Position, NOT the DI. The email that the lead interviewer sent did not specify. I did not even remember applying for an Intel position! So I am still in the waiting game for the DI interview.
