So I am going through the process of getting a new job after 15 years at the same job. This is a civilian job on an Army post. I had almost forgotten what it was like to be in the Army until I started dealing with the Army HR again.
I am going through the process of getting a TS clearance. I know this is a lengthy process and after reading all of these posts, I understand that if all goes well, I will not have that for a LONG time. The job I’m working on getting is trying to get me an interim clearance until everything is finished. So I have two questions:
How long does it take to get an interim clearance (the lady at HR told me for two weeks that she should know something no later than Friday and now she’s telling me she doesn’t know how long it takes)
If granted the interim clearance, is it likely that I will get the regular clearance?
I’m just a little worried about quitting my job Ive been at for the last 15 years for something that may or may not happen.
Thanks for the help.
