          • That supervisor shouldn't have done that. He should have simply authenticated the former employees employment period and said nothing else.

            Even though he has some degree of immunity, if the other supervisor would have given him a good reference and his peers all gave good references, I would consider the act malicious if I were that prospective employee. "Lazy" and chronic lateness require back-up proof, otherwise they are false and malicious statements.

            Edit:
            Forget it, it seems that former employers have absolute immunity when speaking with government talent seekers.

                Wow! That's a long time. You got your TO back to 2007 and still no call! I am glad I didn't select all other in Washington. How you putting up?

                  A guy at FLETC and a guy about to report for pre-academy both have TOs after yours...you must have had some snags in your process..or just bad timing with your background pending...my case is in security office as well but just a refresher. i hope it doesnt take long.

                        Your BI actually begins when you're interviewed... They'll do pre-checks on you prior to that, but it really begins when you meet the investigator, after that it goes to IA where an adjudicator will make the decision on your case... This takes anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on how complex your BI is, and how quick they actually get to your file. The times where people went through in no time, with "interim" clearances is far gone... If you applied for the SWB expect at least 2 years, and much longer for any other region. Don't let the pace of the first steps fool you into thinking that it's all going really quick! This part of the process is, as you can see there are applicants that have been sitting in TSU with all their steps completed for 2 years and are taken out to redo their BI all over again. The days of high ranking family having any pull on the process are gone as well, since the hiring process is handled by a contracted agency... so the good ol' boys network doesn't really work with CBP anymore.
                        Just throwing it out there if you're thinking that this will help you get in any quicker, since you brought up your parents status.
                        Your friends that went in, in 1 year, weren't the quickest as well...we know of a few that went from testing to hire in 3 months just a few years ago. Also, the practice of picking people up because they had their steps completed before someone else is no longer done... if there are applicants with steps completed with a TO from 08', 09' and 10'... they will get picked up before someone with completed steps and a TO from 11'.
                        I know I may sound like I'm trying to bring you down, but I'm giving the reality of the situation... Took me 3 years and 11 months from Test to EOD, and many repeated steps as they expired when time just blew by waiting.
                        Keep a grim outlook and you'll be pleasantly surprised when it comes before you were actually expecting it to...

                        Best of Luck in your process, and welcome to the board!

                        • Hey yoda congrats on your entrance i bet your extremely excited, yea i definetly know i am in for a long wait just dont know what to take in and what to go by as i have had different responses in all this. Thats where im really confused because i had applied back in 2009 for CBP and had scored a 93 on the exam and then in 2010 they told me i had to reapply as the test had changed, during that time i never received a TO and was under the impression that everyone in Miami had retaken the exam since everyone who i knew that had applied had to redo it as well and now some of us are in the same process, and as far as the BI its cause theyve spoken to some ppl i know as well as done an inquiry on my credit. And during the second TO ther letter they sent stated they were going to begin on my BI because they were trying to expedite the process.. anyways im hoping for the best but expecting the worst lol.. keep us up to date on FLETC im too excited to start , but just sucks i might be in for a long wait

                            Right now I am assuming everyone is either a police officer or sheriff.

                            Anyways, I have my written test on the 25th. Wish me luck
                            Hey Baron. Took the exam in April '08. I am the supervisor of the international department for a large private company. Previous job I did imports/exports and unloaded trucks/trains for CBPO's so they could inspect. Currently working on 2nd background. Approved for GS-7.
