FBI Reports Applications for Special Agents Are Up, Employees Are Happier

An increasing number of people are applying to become FBI special agents, and a new survey suggests job satisfaction is climbing among current bureau employees.

The FBI received 32,000 applications, twice the annual recruitment goal and nearly three times higher than the previous year, the bureau told NBC News.

The numbers are significant after President Trump’s incessant attacks on the FBI and the firing of former director James Comey caused a slump in morale.

The latest internal results show “more employees in FBI field offices said they were proud to work for the FBI, believe in its mission, and would recommend it as a good place to work,” reversing declines in those categories in 2017 and 2018.

Border Patrol is taking up to 30,000 applications for field agent jobs, marking its largest recruitment effort in nearly a decade, the Monitor reports. 

“With the arrival of the UTRGV School of Medicine, SpaceX, increased international trade, increased private businesses and government jobs there is no doubt the Rio Grande Valley is experiencing economic growth,” said RGV sector Acting Chief Raul Ortiz.

Congress enacted a law in 2006 requiring Border Patrol to have at least 21,000 agents.

Border Patrol plans to hire about 1,000 agents.

Applicants must be between the agents of 18 and 37.

The process is expected to take about seven months.
