A couple of things worth knowing about SCIS Investigations
(1) As soon as a favorable interim or final result is received for your security clearance, you are contacted to be placed into a training class. However, they do have strict policies in regards to needing to be responsive to communications sent out to you or else you will be removed from consideration. This is a reasonable expectation for an employer to have if you took an offer with their company and they paid for the sponsorship of your security clearance. Unfortunately, the clearance process just takes time and there is nothing that SCIS can do to change that. You should be aware of this before you sign an offer letter. Positions that require security clearances typically aren’t immediate start opportunities
(2) Their training program is intense however the resources available are always accessible and as long as you are focused and willing to learn, it isn’t bad. No matter what field you work in, it is always wise to (A) TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR RESOURCES; learn how to interpret and use them properly, (B) ASK QUESTIONS, © NETWORK with your colleagues, (D) NEVER approach a situation thinking that you already have the knowledge.
(3) The leadership of the organization “talks the talk and walks the walk” The organization is built on a solid foundation of values such as integrity, transparency, respect, trust and employee recognition. It’s core strength is a leadership team that upholds these values throughout their day to day. When you do a little digging on LinkedIn and read posts from employees in the organization you see the phrase “One Team” and once you join their team you understand the full meaning of those two words.
(4) If you’re looking for somewhere you can grow, this company promotes from within and recognizes key players when they see them
(5) If you’ve applied and you’re still waiting for feedback, contact recruiting. They’re flooded with quality applicants trying to come on board with the organization, it never hurts to reach out and get your name out there.
