Depends upon too many factors to be able to say.

Answered - Registry Officer (Former Employee) - Fort Meade, MD

Report answer

The answered given previously are not correct. After the interview, IF you are selected, you will receive an offer (CJO), then you will be asked to submit your clearance paperwork (SF86) and then you will be scheduled for a poly. The process is partially dependent on HR and partially dependent on the applicant as the SF86 takes time to complete. Best estimate is between 3 and 6 months.
