It's a bit different for everybody, but for me...

- CJO in March. Told 6-9 month total process, but like you, I don't know when that 6-9 month process starts.
- Paperwork in April
- Met Background investigator in late April + Early May
- Nothing until July. Early July, they told me I am in suitability and that they'll schedule my poly "soon". Mid July, they told me I was scheduled for Psych/Poly in August. Failed Poly and now I'm waiting for them to schedule my next one. Still have no idea where I am in the process. Is it 6-9 months after I pass my poly? 6-9 months from March (which is almost over at this point)? It's a mystery.

Did they say “fail” or did they say “inconclusive”?

Neither, I took two and both of them just said things like "we didn't get through it".

8/19/2019 contacted by recruiter stating their “schedulers are working with high volume” and they thank me for remaining patient and hopes I get scheduled soon. For record, CJO 4/2019 and finished BI end of 6/2019

Received an email from my recruiter yesterday that I am being handed off to a NEW recruiter. Looks like they hired a few new folks to more evenly distribute the work load. Hopefully that’s good news for all of us.

That’s funny because I received an email from my recruiter stating she can now give me more attention since they hired more recruiters to deal with everyone. Small world.

Hey all,

Timeline updates for those that like to commiserate:

Application: Early January 2017
Contacted for testing: Late January 2017
Phone Screen: March 2017
Operational Interview and CJO: Late March 2017
Security Forms Submissions: May 2017
BI Initiation (Credit pull, references contacted): Late May 2017
BI Interview: June 2017
Security Interview: 22,23 July 2019
Poly/Psych: 25 July 2019 (Passed)

I'm assuming nothing left except for waiting on adjudication at this point, which I have heard takes anywhere from 3 months to a year. Baby steps...

Am I reading this right that between your BI investigator personal interview and your “security interview” and your poly/psych, two years elapsed?! 😮. I have my poly/pysch next month with DIA and had BI interview this week and received CJO in July. Also have NSA offer and NSA is my first choice, so hopefully they can use my DIA investigation since its moving along so I don’t have to wait 2 years. I’m a current fed FWIW.

Hey there; yes, there is a two year gap between those periods. Not surprised really as it jives with many other experiences. From what I know I doubt your two processes will affect each other as they are for to different types of clearances. Your timeline will entirely depend on your personal circumstances. Good luck, it's likely a loooooong road.

You have a language position offer, right?

Also, what is the security interview? A friend of mine who's 4 months ahead of me in the process (we've had the exact same timelines so I use his as a gauge for mine) has those in a few days, but was told nothing about what they were, and they mentioned nothing about the poly/psych though we both assume that's part of it. Could you fill me in on what those interviews are all about?

Hey ClearanceDude,

The security interview is a more in-depth discussion regarding details of your background. It is not the same thing as your poly/psych, as those are scheduled separately.

In my case I met with a security investigator in my own workplace (not NSA's location) in April/May 2019 and then heard nothing for months, and then they emailed me a few months later to come to NSA for a poly/psych.

Because statistically you will not make it through the entire process anyway so they do it whenever there is time. Several of the steps in the process can function independently of one another. Even if you didnt do well in the interview, you might be a better fit for another job. This organization also understands that some really smart people are just really bad at interviews. If they werent interested in you, they wont call you back.

04/19 - Call from the recruiter with salary info and a formal verbal offer
05/19 - Written CJO/equip
05/19 - Sent in transcripts
05/19 - Email from security for extra info.
06/19 - Security processing started
08/19 - Got an Auto-Generated email stating I am in the suitability process

Got an email from the interviewer that security clearance takes 4-6 months to complete.

Thanks,
