FBI Still Slow in Hiring of Intel AnalystsI suspect that is not so much the lengthy hiring process as it is the FBI's inane drug use policy that is causing the problem
The FBI still isn't hiring intelligence analysts fast enough, with one in three positions vacant last fall, the Justice Department inspector general reported Wednesday.
A major problem has been the FBI's inability to meet its hiring goals, partly because the hiring process takes so long, Fine said. The FBI hired less than 40 percent of its goal of 787 analysts by Sept. 30, 2004. The bureau has since speeded up its system of evaluating and checking the background of prospective analysts, he said.
To determine whether you qualify under the FBI's drug policy, please answer the following questions. If you answer "YES" to any of these questions, you should NOT apply for FBI employment.:Good luck filling those positions with this ridiculous policy in place.
1. Have you used marijuana at all within the last three years?
2. Have you used marijuana more than a total of 15 times in your life?
3. Have you used any other illegal drug (including anabolic steroids after February 27, 1991) at all in the past 10 years?
4. Have you used any other illegal drug (including anabolic steroids after February 27, 1991) more than a total of five times in your life?
5. Have you ever sold any illegal drug for profit?
6. Have you ever used an illegal drug (no matter how many times or how long ago) while in a law enforcement or prosecutorial position, or in a position which carries with it a high level of responsibility or public trust?
