First time posting here, and I thank everyone sharing similar experience.
On 6/14 I was contacted by HR from one of the largest government contractor (GD, Lockheed, NGC, Boeing, etc.) to join their engineering team. On 7/24 I finally had a phone interview with HR and the following week a phone interview with the hiring manager. On 8/3 I was flown to their site for an on-site interview and they made me an offer the same day. On 8/28 I have submitted my e-QIP for security clearance and was denied the interim clearance on 9/20. As now I go back review the offer letter which states that "employment is contingent upon the ability to get a full clearance in a reasonable amount of time, as determined by the company."
Has anyone got their offer rescinded because of the interim clearance denial? And how long did your employer wait for your final clearance before they rescinded your offer?
p.s I have tried to reach out to HR, on-boarding representative, security, they all don’t have that “reasonable amount of time” information. There was also no unclassified project for me to work on at the moment. I also feel the HR lady’s email response is a lot more professional than before my interim clearance is denied (no more smiley faces, casual chatting, etc.), which really puts me on edge.
