I’ll go on to say, I had my subject interview fairly quickly. Investigation started 5/18/18. Subject interview 7/24/18. However none of my references or previous employers/coworkers have been contacted. Investigation is still open. Just chiming in because often I see people state that references are normally contacted within two weeks from the interview, that is not always the case.
If I had to guess, and again this is only a guess, I think some problems stem from lack of investigators in some areas. The area I work and reside in now is an area where cleared jobs are in high demand, so I would imagine investigators in this area are numerous. However almost my entire background is from a different geographical location hours away. So while the investigator that conducted my interview here may be done with her portion, the hang up could be on another investigator in the areas I previously lived/worked where my investigation could possibly sit on a desk for months on end. Again, I’m only speculating. If any investigators want to chime in on this, I’d like to hear how it works when investigators have to hand off investigations to other investigators in different geographical locations.
