I am in the interview process for Perspecta (was Keypoint) for a BI job and I have a question about training and what happens if you fail.
The first two weeks of training is done at home. I was told that I will be studding and taking tests and if I don’t pass them with at least an 80% I will no longer be considered for the job.
I was also told that I will have to pay $8,000 if while my own background investigation is going on I decide I no long want to work for them, or if I quit the job before a year of employment.
I have two questions…if I fail the at-home tests phase and I am let go, will I really have to pay $8,000? This makes me very nervous.
My other question is; if I fail the at-home tests and I am let go, am I able to use my clearance that I gained form Perspecta if I apply to a job that requires one? Or, does Perspecta prevent that from happening and I would therefore have to have a background investigated done all over again?
