Hey everyone, I'm new to both this forum as well as applying to the FBI, so I've been reading up a lot about the hiring process here. Quite a journey so far for all of us, huh?

I applied to the second wave posting on May 1st, got the update to Phase I on May 25th, scheduled it on June 8th for the 13th and took the assessment. They are apparently no longer giving results right after you complete the assessment as I received an email stating that the results will be given in early August. I'm pretty bummed, I was hoping to pass and take the Phase II assessment this week. Has anyone else had this experience?

Hey, I’m new to the process as well. Also bummed that we have to wait so long for the results. Really don’t want this process to be stalled.

Yeah I don't really understand the holdup. I know we're in the middle of a pandemic, but I don't see how that would affect a computer grading multiple choice results. If this was Phase II and the results were coming 2 months late, I can get why but for Phase I it's pretty senseless.

Hi all, I have a bit of a confusing situation and I'm hoping someone might have some insights...

So I applied to the initial posting in January and passed Phase I and Phase II. My application updated to Phase III, then I received the notice that the application was closing and to re-apply to the new posting. So I did. My application was exactly the same, except for stating that I had passed Phase II. Absolutely nothing has changed on my end. A few weeks after submitting, I received an email saying I "did not meet the basic requirements" and when I checked that application's status it had changed to "Disqualified due to Pre-screening." The old January application's status was still Phase III.

Is this just how they notify you that you haven't been selected to advance to Phase III? The phrasing of "basic requirements" and "pre-screening" threw me off, since I'd assume you HAVE to meet basic requirements and pass pre-screening to even be invited for Phase I. Am I delusional/hopeful it was a mistake? Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or had encountered this before. I suppose it doesn't change anything, but it might help my peace of mind.

Thanks and best of luck to those still in the game!

Have you tried sending an email? I think because you have passed the first 2 phases those results don't just go away. It's worth reaching out to them just in case.

Random Question: Is the phase 1 test for IA's the same as the ones for SA's? I'm asking because in the SA group, I saw that a person took there test a few days ago and already got their results. Granted they advised those who recently took phase 1 we would get the results early August. The anticipation is nerve racking!

If you look up the special agent selection process and intelligence analyst selection process it’s the same phase 1 test that has figural reasoning, logic-based reasoning, personality assessment, preferences and interests, and situational judgment.

Has anyone who passed Phase 3 been contacted to schedule their PSI/Poly? I submitted my SF-86 the first week of March, but it has been radio silence since because of Covid. I'm in the "Security Component: Investigation in Progress" status. I did log in a couple of weeks ago and it said my application had been last updated on July 1st, but I have no way of checking what that update was. I've even been answer the "spam likely" calls just in case.

An FBI recruiter did send me an email around the same time I got the request to submit the SF-86 asking me if I lived in X area and I responded I did, but that was the last of it. I did send this same person an email last week asking if they could provide me with an update, but no response yet.

You could try calling your local FO applicant number. I think each FO also has an email for applicants, something like bostonapplicants@fbi (dot) gov ... just change the name of the city. Fair warning though, everything in the federal govt right now has slowed down, so I don't know how likely these are to work.

I'm in the process for a different position but also have had "Inv in Progress" since June 10. I have tried to contact the app coordinator and recruiting at the JEH Bldg (where I'd be working to start) and have had no reply. I got the JEH recruiting email because I first tried the Baltimore and then the DC FO, who suggested the JEH based on the job type.

Yes, that’s what I thought! So when they posted they received their results it threw me off. I just hope I get the results soon as this is a lengthy process.

Thank you! I'll give those a try.

Yea, I figured everything is really slow right now. Thankfully, it gives me time to save more money for the potential move.

I had a date change on 8/4/2020. The previous date change was when my security component began. CJO 10/2019, PSI and fingerprints Nov 2019, the poly in January 2020, and background contacts were all contacted in May/early June. I have been receiving my 3-week “you are active” emails this whole time. There was one difference in the email I received last week, just prior to the date change. Instead of the “you are active” email, I got an email about recruiting for certain jobs, etc. It was not the same type of email I had been getting before. So. Any thoughts? I’m in the IA process.
