SF86 Question
May 6th, 2016 at 3:04pm
Print Post  
Graduated college in 2014 and recently got a conditional offer from an agency. Need to submit the sf86 by this week.

I've been fired from two jobs, but they only lasted two weeks. Should I report this? Also, will it matter, or impact me negatively in any way? The reasons were primarily because it wasn't a "good fit", not because of any ethical/moral issues. Please advise.

You are required to list all employment, whether employed for a week or a decade.  Failure to do so will result in your termination from further consideration prior to hire, or after hiring, when the background check is done.  In addition, if the hiring agency also conducts preemployment polygraph testing, you will be asked if you falsified any of your security forms.

Falsifying an SF-86 (omission constiitutes falsification) also is a felony;  just read the fine print on the form for the consequences.

Ok then. I will be sure to report the two jobs I had for literally two weeks before being fired.

Any idea as to whether this will negatively impact my application? No ethical/moral issues were involved.

depends on the reasons;  employee theft, sexual harassment, or workplace violence definitely are a disqualifier, most other reasons are not.

Well that's good to hear. So it wouldn't disqualify, but would it impact my application negatively to any degree?

Thanks for the response I greatly appreciate it!

again, it depends on the hiring agency;  each agency has their own threshold for disqualifying information.
