USAO background check - still waiting

Postby Anonymous User » Mon May 04, 2015 10:52 pm

So it's been about 8 weeks since I sent in my background check info for USAO internship. Still waiting.

Is there a cause for concern here or should I just chill out? Exams are going to be done within a week or so, and I'd really like to get a start date / get a definitive answer.

Anyone else in the same boat? Know about the process?

If I remember right, they didn't give me an answer unless I asked. If they haven't said anything yet, you're just fine.

If you are really concerned, contact the HR person and ask.

My background check wasn't cleared until the fourth day of the first week I started. I was only allowed to read unclassified preparatory material. DOJ was just swamped with stuff, so almost no one in my cohort had theirs done the first day.

So if you have nothing in your background to worry about, don't worry.
