I accepted, and started working security at one of the NASA centers. The position requires a secret security clearance and i’ve been worried to death about it. Like I said, I was able to begin working while the investigation is underway but I would be fired if I got bad news.
Reasons i’m worried are in 2013 I got my first and only DUI. Two years before that I was arrested for disturbing the peace. A few speeding tickets. Okay now for the worst part IMO… I have 4 accounts in collecting totaling around 3,500 dollars. However, I also have 4 personal loans, and two auto loans completely paid off with a 100% on-time payment history. The reason those 4 accounts are in collection is because I got behind on payments with a wife and two children in the house and only making $13/hr.
I was 100% honest with everything on the E-QIP and I told my investigator and my FSO that I plan on consolidating my outstanding accounts into one payment (already talked to my credit union about this and since i’m in excellent standing with them, it wouldn’t be a problem). I’m waiting to do that when I go full-time though. I’m part time/on call right now with no guarantee on hours. I don’t want to take a chance at doing that and not being able to make a payment on time.
I also did some job hopping back in the day and was fired twice. However, I was with my last job for nearly 4 years and gave a two week notice.
Thank you everyone who replies!
