Update- I just got my Phase II package a few minutes ago and they have informed me that all of the hiring wickets are scheduled to be complete by the end of April with the exception of the BI (BIs are averaging about 2 weeks I think). The FBI is moving candidates through really fast right now.

Never, but USMS does.

The only drawback to this agency is you don't know where you will be posted until halfway through the academy. Unless things have changed.

There is also a job announcement for HRT on usajobs.

That's true but they are also one of the only ones who will pay for your first move, which to me is huge. Moves are expensive. And you start out as a GS-10 vice a 5 or 7 with many other agencies.

As far as the degree requirement, they have not ever and will not budge. ATF will but you have to have several years of experience as a criminal investigator (i.e. detective, not a patrolman).

Hmm, I wonder what the best avenue to go to the FBI Counter-terrorism Task Force would be... Really cant find any postings really that close to working for that division.

Its like my Department recruiting poster showing the helicopter pilot standing next to the bird with the caption "Fresno County Sheriff Air Support" "Now Hiring. Call XXXXXXX" A little deceiving.....but oh well.
As I recall, the Army uses the same recruiting tactic.

The FBI has definitely opened up to other skill sets over the last few decades. When one of my cousins joined in the early 70s, having either a law degree or CPA was practically mandatory.

Has anyone here actually successfully progressed through the TRP to HRT? I am looking into the program and am interested in real first-hand info as opposed to word of mouth and/or the recruiting info. PMs Preferred.

Edited to add: On a public note, are there specific medic billets on the team(s)?

They are having a hard time getting guys to try out after they get in under program...now they are very much emphasizing that you are making a promise, essentially, to give it a go...although no one is required to try out, obviously.

And, the TRP advantage, other than coming in with "SWAT/SF/Ranger" as your critical skill, is that you can try out in two years vs. three.

Medic slots, yes, but they are SA medics with some program manager non-SA types in the mix, too.

HRT contracts out their Medic positions. My understanding after talking with a couple of them down there last year that they travel with the teams and go everywhere. However, do not "stack up" with them outside the door. They conduct the first aid training and train up the different teams. And many of the SA's get their EMT as well.

Edited to add: Sorry for the necropost. Had done a search and this thread showed up and my poor S.A. didn't pick up on the date. Apologies.

It does seem awfully low, considering what those guys go through. I have a couple buds that are FBI and they both work their asses off and work UC with significant risks...

Journeyman position with FBI is GS-13 plus 25% LEO pay. Normal annual progression is 11/12 then 13 depending on a few variables. Keen possibility of GS -13 within 3-4 years on the job. The 25% LEO pay makes a huge difference, plus locality pay added in.

You receive a "temporary" promotion to GS-14 with HRT if you are a 13.
