Interview

This is the most helpful information you will receive regarding the DCMA hiring/onboarding process. Please flag it as helpful if you agree! 1. BE AWARE that you may need a security clearance. If you do, this means you’d better have good credit, no arrest records, no nefarious associations, etc., especially in the last 7 years or so. Don’t think you can lie about it. There WILL BE an investigation and the investigators are trained to develop what can be developed. Don’t waste people’s time. College students especially get surprised when they find out “drug experimentation” isn’t experimentation after they did it several times. ABOVE ALL, DON’T LIE ON THE SF86. You’ll be filling it out again years later and if there’s inconsistencies, you’ll be in an uncomfortable position at the very least. 2. Do yourself a big favor and search for the clearancejobsblog website. Read the posts to learn what kinds of issues people experience with the clearance process. 3. If you still intend to apply, the initial interview is done over the telephone. You will be asked questions by a panel of persons. You have 30 minutes and about 5 or 6 questions to answer. You may ask for a question to be repeated, but there will be no clarifications given. After you answer each question fully, indicate that you are finished with your answer. 4. The interview questions I was asked were completely different from those previously posted. Be prepared to answer any kind of question pertaining to your job duties, experience and work habits. 5. If you interview well and are selected for the next steps, be advised: a. If your position requires you to obtain and maintain a security clearance, you will be asked to submit fingerprints and fill out a SF86. b. Regarding fingerprints, I advise you to get them submitted via Livescan, and you can do this at an Army recruiter. Ask your contact about this as soon as they tell you to go get them done, and ask for codes to submit the prints to the DoD. I got inked prints from a local police station and sent them off (at cost to me) only to find out weeks later they were “unclassifiable”. c. Regarding the SF86, it is completed electronically. Not bad for a big, multi-page form. Get your info together- passport, transcripts, any moving violation records, family member contact info, etc etc etc. For me, this was the worst part of the whole process but all in all, not so bad. 6. After you get your prints and the SF86 submitted, they look for any obvious disqualifiers. This may take 2-4 months. YES, MONTHS. If you don’t look like a baddie, you may get a waiver or “interim clearance” to complete onboarding and come start your job. NOTE: My experience involved being contacted mid-week by a person informing me I was granted a waiver and that I was wanted to start work Monday of the NEXT WEEK. ??? Like no one is expected to give 2-weeks’ notice to their present/previous job??? 7. If you say, “Yes, DCMA, I will abandon my employer ‘cos they don’t deserve me anyway” and report, you may expect a year or more until you get your clearance. That is, IF you were honest and had no issues develop or could explain them satisfactorily. If not, you’ll get fired for due cause. Remember, if you don’t have a clearance for a job that requires it, you’re not qualified! 8. BONUS INFO for reading all the way through: CBD is still classified as a Schedule I drug by the Feds. Yes, I know it’s sold in every gas station and drug store, but if you apply for a Fed job, you have to quit using it. Stop whining. Don’t lie about it, either. GOOD LUCK!!!

Interview

They contact you by email to make sure you submit every document they need. After you submit everything they called me and emailed me to let me know the time and day for the interview. After the interview, a month later they gave me the job and started 2 or 3 weeks later. I assume the month delay was due to the security clearance.
