Just received an offer from DSTA, but offer is only valid if security clearance is obtained.

How easy or hard is it to clear this? How does one fail the security clearance?

DSTA engineer salary
 
anyone know the normal graduate engineer (nontech) pay from DSTA this year ?

Unregistered 16-02-2022 04:07 PM

Offer after interview
 
I interviewed back in late January for a Land Systems position but have not gotten any update since then. Does DSTA inform you even if you did not make it through? I have emailed the HR for a follow-up but there was no response as well. Does anyone know how long does it take?

Doing programming as a engineer though, although Iíve heard that there may be overlapping responsibilities with project management. Currently a fresh grad (which means no YOE lol), and was offered 4.9k. Got any idea on whatís the pay scale and progression like in DSTA?

"based on performance"
some people get C grade every year until they dont want to work harder bc wont get more. the grading v. opaque.

promotion has seniority requirements even if your grades good
minimum 2yr, 4yr, 8(?)yr before they promote even if you are qualified. apply for technical proficiency level was told i was 'too young'
but promote also just flat few hundred more, its the max increase only (if you stuck at junior for 10+ year your salary will cap). have seen incompetent ppl get promote just by being ... senior.

and yes, scholar given more opportunities. and work like dog for entire bond period. half zao, half doing well.

many just treat PS/CS job for what it is lah. good for having family, good for stability
