    There is no way you should allow the possibilty of a failed Poly to influence your attempt to leave or to better yourself.
    The folks here put way to much faith in what these Agencys communicate to each other. Or how they think of each other .
    I have seen people here apply to FAMS & BP and fail one or the other background [ I believe for no reason] and be hired the same week .
    When I left I was told by my Fed Agency that basically in these words we could not give a rats ____ about you failing or passing [twice] your CBP background or any other Federal . We do our own and make our own choices. The same can be said for applications . I have seen people put out a lot of applications and never get hired until one day they do. In fact hired for a job that they were less qualified for then the ones they were over qualified for and were turned down.

          • First post in months, mainly because I had nothing to add. Well I got my Credit recheck forms in April. Background pending since then. Well today, background went back to Green Check completed and now the Pre-Employment forms went back to pending lol. Guess they at least know I'm alive right? Coming up on 3 years since I first got the TO. What a ride it's been. Btw, my med/fit should expire soon too. Can't wait to step again...

            Just thought I would share for anyone concerned about their Background taking forever to reclear.

                Wrong thread. CBPO has no artificial language test, that is for BP.

I know quite a bit about the poly and how i can ruin an absolutely perfect canidates dreams for no reason at all..
                  Hey,

                  I would not be surprised if that happens, as it did to someone on this forum, that was working already in DHS, he or she was threaten about current job with TSA in the Poly if I am not mistaken and remember well....

                  But let’s hope it doesn’t and you do well in the poly, and wish you all the best...

                    I've been in TSU for well over a year now. I've recently had to resubmit my credit papers and noticed they checked my credit just a few days ago (which is probably worse than it was some 2 years ago when I first applied). ANYWAY, I've been reading about how some people have "failed" the polygraphy... which ironically those results are never permitted in court... so how the fed gov can go by them is beyond me. I noticed how some people "failed" them because they were questioned about their foreign trips and/or because they live in close proximately to the border. It seems that if a person travels to Egypt to Indonesia or Mexico or wherever, they just automatically assume you're dealing drugs or something... and totally are turned off to the fact that some of us may actually enjoy international travel (which in a way is kinda what this job is about!!!!). In recent years, I have traveled to Peru (and elsewhere in South America) numerous times... sometimes 2-3 times in a year because I have many friends there and, simply, I really enjoy South America... beaches, everything is cheap, archeological ruins, food, culture, etc... and yes, drugs come from Peru, too... but, come one... am I basically dead in the water now that I've traveled? The fact that I've been wading through this process for close to 2 years... jumping over and through every hoop that comes my way... I think we all deserve better than this. Granted, I haven't had to take my poly yet... and have NOTHING to hide... hell, I've never even tried a cigarette in my entire life... I'll be very unhappy if the polygraph says I "lied" about anything.
                    Hey Gbeck422,


                    Good luck on your Poly as it seems its coming soon, since you had to re-submit the FCRA forms, I got my poly scheduled a couple of weeks after they pulled my credit, anyway don’t be surprised they do the same to you as to many of us.....hopefully not, but I am pretty sure you have read all the stories about the famous poly......

                          I see those from time to time on I-95 going who knows where and also around Federal Highway close the Port off of 17th ST Causeway in Fort Lauderdale. Was going to take a pic with my phone but didn't have time to pull it out.

                          We also have the white Chevy SUVs down in these woods, and I think I also saw the Chevy HHR with the blue customs stripe and the green BP stripe (not on the same vehicle obviously).

                          I always think to myself, damn, that could be me driving.

                          • So my FCRA cleared on the TSA's CASS equivalent site (Candidate Dashboard) already and it was started after the CBP one. For CBP, Cass still says:

                            " Background Investigation pending Your case is in the security office."

                              TSA's background is a joke compared with CBP. Don't worry too much about it, it'll only drive you nuts.
