  • Received call from BI today. I anticipate things are moving very well and will continue to. This was less than a week after the email stating the BI is starting.

      I got my medical scheduled and I've gotten an email from the background contractor saying that I'll have an investigator assigned to me in the next few days. I'm pretty sure that the background and medical are being run independently of each other. Each contractor probably has a separate system for scheduling candidates, but both seem to be moving along pretty quickly.

  • I’ve had medical. No email for BI or drug test as of yet.

      I'm in the same boat, but I'm also a current HSI 1801 with a TS-SCI.... so maybe thats why.

      I will third that as well. I reached out to DSC Medical and received a reply that since I am a current DHS Federal employee that a drug test was not required. Also if you have a Top Secret Clearance especially if issued by DHS then your clearance will transfer over.

  • Hello all, just checking in to see if anyone else has heard that the next HSI announcement may be in May?

      The rumor on other forums is mid May and it will close after the first 1,000 applications. I would literally check every day on USA jobs

        Awesome, everyone seems within 2-3 weeks of each other so that’s a good sign. I’m still hyper focused on a successful PFT. Doing extra workouts to be sure.

        According to the pre employment packet we do, not sure if they’ll modify that.

    • I did drug and medical last week. Anyone know whats next?
      To be honest I don't remember too much about losing my virginity. All I remember is I had been awake for almost 86 hours, I was on the roof of a Public Storage building in what seemed to be a freezing rainstorm, and Christopher Walken was there with a disposable camera that he kept winding even though it had clearly run out of pictures.

        Yeah no problem, my BI interview is done but I imagine it will take a few months to process from what I’ve beeb told.

    • I have not heard from BI in reference to this announcement. I did a background for BP earlier in the year, and was offered a job that ultimately turned down. Anyone know if that will play into this at all?

        I’m gonna say yes, only because I think our situations are similar. I did my drug test today and medical tomorrow, but still haven’t heard about equip or from a BI yet. I submitted an equip in November of last year and was granted a TS-SCI from another agency for a separate job. All that is to say, I think of you have a recent equip entry on file, then you will hear from HR about your background investigation later than other applicants who have no recent equip filing. Make sense?

    • Completed my medical over a week ago. I still haven’t been contacted for a drug screen or BI interview. Are you contacted by the the same service/number for the drug screen as the medical?

        Same service does both drug and medical but I was called by two different numbers. One an 1-866 and one was a FL area code.

    • Got the call. Good luck to the rest of you!

      • The instructions on the medical exam paperwork say that it may include a fitness test and to dress accordingly. Did anyone have any sort of fitness test during the medical? I was planning on wearing jeans, but now I'm second guessing that.

          Nope I did not, though the medical office told me CBP does.

      • Anyone know if they give you an option for location or it's one final.

          From talking to someone who just got hired last year, it’s final. You could always ask if they are short anywhere else? They called him gave him his location and he was ready to start.

          Seems like everyone so far has been given a choice between two locations. I believe each location has been within an AOR that they picked on their initial application. For instance, someone who picked LA got offered LAX, which is in the LA AOR, but not at the SAC office for LA.

            People who already had a security clearance I’m guessing. I was under the impression there was still a PFT. In any event, if anyone gets the call please let us know so we can know what to expect. Good luck all.

            That makes sense seeing as how I haven't heard anything about BI, but I'm already BP working on updating my eqip now so I'm sure it all is transferring over. For those I've heard getting their call, it doesn't sound like a PFT was done. Sounds like as soon as their BI and medical cleared they were good to go.

            That’s promising news as I would love to be started by this summer. I’m only two hours from FLETC so it would be an easy transition, barring any issues with BI or medical, it didn’t appear there were any.

        • I did the medical Friday the 27th of last month. So about a week ago. On average, how long is it taking people on here to clear the medical?

            a few weeks.... but it's going to depend on whether anything comes up in your BI or medical I would assume.
