Hi, I left my former employer last year by giving two weeks notice. I was put on a Performance improvement plan during a organizational change. Several others were also put on a “plan” and later fired. I did everything they asked. I decided that it was not going to get better no matter what I did and gave two weeks notice and took a job at as a federal contractor. After the first week of my two week notice, the company had me “leave early.” The CIO said I was being “hateful.” When people asked why I was leaving, I said nothing more than the truth. I was not derogatory or demeaning. I still love that company and associate with alot of the employees. On my SF-85 I did not put that I left under “unfavorable” circumstances because I gave two weeks notice and although I had a PIP, it was stated by my manager that the “communication issues” were improved.
The investigator that is local to me interviewed the COO and another employee at the location I worked at. The CIO was located at another location. I have good reason to believe they gave me a good review.
During the initial investigation I told her about the performance improvement plan, and the situation. Told her I did not believe I left under unfavorable circumstances and did not mark it as such as I gave 2 weeks notice.
The investigator came back and stated that that during the interview with management at the CA location they said I was “causing dissension and discord.” This was the first I had heard of those words. I again explained the situation to the investigator. She seemed very favorable towards me when I explained the situation. She said she would fill out the report and send it to adjudication.
The second interview occurred almost a month ago. Will this affect me in getting clearance? I never had any issues in my past with employment. The wait is killing me.
