Why does it take some 5 months and some a few weeks.
I was hired after obtaining clearance which took just under 5 months.
It took roughly 3 weeks to get hired from start to finish in my experience.

Employment on Quantico base is an extension process due to security issues. The entire process took approximately two weeks. A prospective employee has at least two interviews. If hired, then the process of entry begins, with background checks, etc. There are numerous badges the employee has to be provided with, for access to different areas and locations on the base.

It's a process due to the background checks and security protocol but overall it's not that long.
