    Tentatively passing means you didnt lie. Now the question is, will your answers find you unsuitable for employment? Thats the key, got a friend of mine's husband like that.

        ICE.
        CBP re- tested me twice and my background took a really long time so last year I finally called them. They could not find my file. Two weeks later I call back and found out that I had been cleared for months, but my file had been lost. Two weeks later I show up in TSU, about the same time hiring froze up. In the meantime 3 friends who tested way after me passed me in the process, went to FLETC and have been on the job for months. 7 months later I am still waiting for CBP. I am former military, have a college degree, already work for DHS, and my background is as clean as they get. It’s been over two years. CBP wasted a lot of time and money.
        I said to the guy who called me this morning that I didn’t think I would hear from anyone until after the new fiscal year, he said, “we have already started using that money, but on paper your start date will be after the new fiscal year starts"
        I guess every agency works a little different.
        Good luck and good bye!!

          Cant say it enough times, good for you!! Ive done the pt and med twice, drug test twice and my vbt expires in january. Ive been done with everything except the BI of course since october. BI showed clear on CASS in March, i emailed MHC and they said it was fully cleared. Then it went to TSU and the back to BI pending. MHC then said "sorry the clear code was erroneously entered by mistake.". Been waiting ever since. Everytime i contact IA, they say they are almost to a decision, try back in a few weeks. This is after already doing fletc for cbp once, and re-applying after that in late 2007 and hearing nothing. 3 times thru the process and still posting on this forum. You'll know if i ever get rehired because you'll never see me again!!
          If i got another opportunity, i'd take it and give CBP the finger.

            ifoCBP,

            Based on your background and patience, it sounds like you will be a good addition to any agency. Good luck to you at FLETC and in your new career!

            • ifoCBP,
              Nice man, Congrats on getting into ICE. Now since your TSU Lounge chair is vacant.... can I have it?

              Did anyone else log into CASS today and get a pop up from the DHS that said "Congratulations, this is your 10,000th CASS log-in. Unfortunately at this time we have no prizes to give out since we're broke... but this message has music so turn your speakers up!"

              I can't take this wait any longer. I'm going insane.

                Mine said: Congratulations!! This is your 250,000th CASS login!! Due to your Jesus-like patience with us, we had planned on giving you the job of CBP officer and the key to the city of your choice. You also are entitled to choose a prize from the following:

                1) Tickets for 4 to every game of the World Series this year and $5000 spending cash

                2) A $10,000 shopping spree to any store in your local area

                3) $10,000 towards the purchase of any American made vehicle

                *Due to fact that we thought you would have committed suicide by now, we didn't bother making any arrangements for the above. Please keep waiting and try back tommorrow.

                Love,
                MHC

                          There was no insane question, very much straight forward. The only insane thing about it they asked you to relax and breathe normal. It was hard for me to relax when you have straps all over you and have you sit still. The hardest part is concentrating on being still and breathe, even though the strap tighten your breathing at the same time answer the questions. As for the types of question they asked, I am not sure if I am at liberty to tell. Overall it was an experience I will never forget.

                            Its just an inert aeresol. Its like getting sprayed with lemon Pledge. You only get sprayed for real once at the end of training.
