    Hello,
    I'm hoping to join a local Flotilla next week

    What is looked at for not granting the favorable DO level PSI?

    Thanks

    OK, first up, you seem to be asking this question as if you may have something you're worried about. Above all, be straight when you answer questions and fill out forms. If you are in your 40's but got busted in college once for having a joint, be honest and say it like it is. The background check is rigorous and if you lie about something it can actually get you blocked when the 'thing' itself wouldn't have been a problem. Also, don't skimp on the paperwork. You'll have to dig up a lot to move forward. Make sure you know where to put your hands on paperwork just like you were getting a Passport or a license. This stuff is not a joke and you can't negotiate the issues. You either have the paperwork and you satisfy the requirements or you don't.

    That said, so long as you haven't committed any violent felonies, aren't currently wanted or serving a sentence or have a history of undesirable behavior, you have a chance as long as you satisfy all of the other requirements (U. S. citizen, etc.). Go to the Flotilla you're interested in joining and have a heart to heart with the Flotilla Commander and his Member Training officer and also the HR officer. There's no BS involved. Talk it out, do what you can and take what comes. If you get in, everyone will expect you to do your best. If you don't get in, I'll still hope you will do your best and correct, as best you can, anything that's not right.

    Go to the Flotilla. Talk to the people. See what happens.

    Thanks for the info. I've no arrests with no other issues.
    I did go and passed a State and FBI background check 3 years ago. That also came up clean.
    My only issue may be my credit background. I did go though a chapter 7 last year. But even with that my credit is getting pretty good.

    I did go to the Flotilia last week.  So likely just going for the SO first anyways.
    After that I'll try for the DO status. The VC and another FSO are being very helpful and I'm guessing that it just becomes a waiting game now.

    No paper work has been summitted yet. A couple more visits for training or other business. Then I should be good to go. One of the other new guys was there for his third time and was starting his paper work at the meeting last week.

    The VC has been running the show for a couple of months. But the FC should be back soon. The HR staff officier was new and and just learning the ropes. But it did seem like the VC wanted to get the new guys moving.

    I might of not have gotten terms and titles correct, but you likely get the point. I'm still very new at this

    Thanks again!
