Timeline:
9/9/19 - Applied
9/11/19 - Took writing assessment
10/23/19 - Notified: passed writing assessment
10/25/19 - Completed and submitted bio data assessment
1/23/20 - Received email to interview in person
2/4/20 - Interviewed and fingerprinted
6/1/20 - Received request to complete applicant disclosure and drug questionnaire
6/3/20 - Thank you email from IRS recruiting team for completing documents
8/16/20 - Email from staffing about upcoming phone call


I got the same email on the same date. Given hiring, my assumption would be the COE, as they can’t essentially move forward in the process without it. I doubt they are handing out phone calls for “no thank you’s”. It may be a simple “are you still interested” given the delay from interview to where we are today, because of the pandemic. Even though we expressed that in June when they sent the questionnaire. Lol. Next step should be the poly (from as much as I can gather), should that COE come through.

I received a call on 08/12/20 with a conditional offer for the intelligence research specialist position I applied to in Sept 2019. They told me during the call I'd receive a formal email the next week with my conditional offer letter, which I did.

However, I also got the email saying we'd be receiving a call, which in my case was after I already received the call with a CO.

I received the call too for tentative offer last week and am waiting for the email with conditional offer information this week.

Hey hope everyone is doing well and had a great week. I just checked o USAJobs and there is a new IRS announcement. One difference I did notice is that there is no mention of having to take a poly. Would anyone know if this might signify a change in the hiring process? Would it also be to our advantage to apply for this new announcement? I applied for the announcement in 2019 and after that email on 8/16, I am no further along in the process. Any thoughts on this new announcement would be appreciated.

Was the email that you got on 8/16 for an upcoming phone call?

I just saw the new announcement. I don't think the 2019 posting specifically mentioned the poly, but I think its still needed for the position regardless. I'm also waiting for the call.

I found the 2019 announcement on my USAJobs account and it did specifically say the poly was required. Since this new announcement does not mention the poly, that is why I find it interesting. If the poly is still required nonetheless, why would it not be stated on this new announcement?

I also find that interesting that this Sept 2020 posting did not specifically mention the polygraph, BUT I think there may be a couple things that might be at play here, (1). The polygraph is part of the DEA's suitability and security clearance process and will be part of this announcement---and they did not feel the need to mention it specifically or (2). Somebody at HR forgot to include it and they will either keep the polygraph as part of the process regardless on this announcement, OR they will cancel this announcement and re-post it with the polygraph specifically mentioned.

I think someone did forgot to include the poly in the announcement. Up until now, every job announcement I ever came across that required a poly was explicitly mentioned. I do not see why the DEA would no longer feel the need to mention having to take a poly. Even if the poly is part of the screening process, that is still a formal step in the hiring process and it should be mentioned. Otherwise, it would lead an applicant to apply thinking there is no poly required and if an applicant were to later find out that there is a poly, the applicant might withdraw from the process completely depending on how he or she feels about the poly. That would also frustrate HR because at that point, a significant amount of effort might have already been invested in the applicant's candidacy and the withdrawal sends all that effort to waste. Granted, the applicant may not get that far depending on how well he or she does on the assessments/ interviews, but if a poly is still required, it should be mentioned so that when someone applies, he or she knows what to expect. This is just my 2 cents on the matter. I would be interested to hear what anyone else has to say on this.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it was a mistake in the posting. I see no reason as to why the agency would quit doing those test. Also if your already in the process why would you apply for another announcement? Once you have made it through the interview you are in the pipeline and will eventually go through the entire process unless you fail some part of it.

I applied to two IRS spots with the DEA this year, a Public one and a Recent Grad. Those are both just received. I did also just do an assessment for a DEA Diversion Investigator and interviewed for an FDA investigator position locally. To be honest, I have always considered it a dream job to be in the IC or Foreign Service. (Yes I know those are mutually exclusive lol)

Hopefully the new announcement goes better for me. I accidentally applied for GS9 instead of GS7 last year, only to pass all the tests and be told I didn't qualify for the grade I applied for. However, my test results were still valid when I applied so I'm all set for the interview phase whenever that may be!

Like others have said, I think this was an oversight on the listing, and that polys will continue to be a requirement. All the current applicant pools have polys involved. With that being said, I know out of the four core jobs for DEA, Diversion Investigators have not been having to polygraph, for reasons unknown to me.

Polar Bear: There is one HQ office for DEA that focuses and liaises with the IC. It's a very specific part of DEA, but technically still IC. I myself hadn't realized DEA had membership until getting in. And while it's not the Foreign Service, DEA has at least 85 foreign offices spread across 67 countries, so there's plenty of opportunity for foreign postings in your career!

Anyone here also in the DI process? I'm a Jan 2019 DI applicant, sort of in limbo on that one with nothing new since last May (drug questionnaire). I saw this newest announcement for IRS and decided to apply, sounds like an interesting job.

What I'm wondering is if being in the process for two different positions will affect the timeline at all, either speeding some things since they already have a bunch of my info or actually slowing things down?
