    An agent or officer who is hired but on probation - if the said person screws up big time before their probation period is up, then they usually are not promoted to a full fledged officer or agent, which usually leads to a firing.

    Probie is used fore someone that is not trained as a special agent , McGee wasn't traned as a special agent he is a computer technician that is why they call him probi because he dos not have the same training that they do or a normal special agent (filed agent) would have so he goes on a probation

    Was it ever said that he is no longer a probie? He sure deserves it. I know he said to Ziva he was glad she was there because that meant he was no longer the new person, but did he ever get 'offically' promoted?

    Tony has let McGee slip a few times, rather than calling him Probie.

    I guess that he was promoted at the same time Tony does, and that makes him junior field agent or something like that

    I see your point, I find they just don't treat him that way anymore sorry I probably should have explained my thinking.
    'K they haven't officially promoted him(that we have seen).

    There is a scene somewhere (can't recall where) when McGee asks Tony was "Probie" means and Tony says "Probationary Agent".

    Tony is so mean to McGee. If I were McGee I'd put salt in his coffee.

    Thats true but that is when he starts calling him Probie. So technically speaking, he isn't a probie but Tony still says it.
