So here is my background. Long story short, I was convicted of assault and serves time in prison in 2003. Released 2008. Never been arrested or convicted of anything else. Received public trust in 2012 and graduated with undergrad degree in 2012 and masters in 2015.
I recently applied for a job with DHS. My eQip was done in October 2016 and I just received a call I can start work but final adjudication has not been made. Clearly they have all the information. Is there a possibility I start working and then they fire me ? They ran my fingerprints and credit… or is this just red tape and 9 times out 10, I should be Good?
Also, what is the likelihood of me being able to receive a waiver and get a secret clearance with a 14 year old felony, no other convictions, 2 degrees since released and workIng for DHS?
