I recently accepted a Federal position with one of the large executive branch agencies in early July and extremely excited for this dream opportunity. However, it requires a TS SCI level clearance (a required polygraph was not mentioned) and I was hoping to see if I had a chance to get cleared and average timeframe for my background. I was favorably adjudicated for a Public Trust (T2 level) back in 2015 and have been working as a Federal Contractor at that clearance level since. However I made a couple dumb mistakes several years ago that I’m afraid will hurt my chances. Top of that list is a DUI in 2013 in college while just trying to move my car in a parking lot. I withdrew my appeal in 2015 and DL was restored Jan 2016. I also sporadically tried weed 2-4 times between 2013-2015 in college and once while in a low-risk contractor position. However, I’ve had 0 use for nearly 4 and a half years now and nothing else. I also received a minor write up at work in 2014 for leaving work early in a retail position that was actually a miscommunication between managers aka 2 bosses said I could leave at different times.
Long story short, would 1 DUI, minor weed use, and a past write up prevent me from getting cleared for a TS SCI, even though it was many years ago? Thanks so much.
