  • OK, so I guess I'll just sit tight as far as the hearing test goes, like I said I didn't miss a beep but just probably pushed in areas I shouldn't have. So today I went back to the office for the reading on the TB skin test and it was a different lady at the check in counter. I told her I was there for the TB reading, she looked at my arm and said "o.k. your fine". It concerned me a little because she didn't pull any paperwork out, all she told me is that I'm o.k. and then asked me if I have disability. I said "you do know why I'm here right? it's for the testing for CBP", she said "yes; but do you have disability or did you bring any paperwork from the VA".....?? I was super concerned at this point, I just told her I was there Saturday, I brought a Fed Ex envelope with me and I tested for the CBPO position, she looks at me and says "ok, your fine then"..... I really hope my paperwork gets handled correctly and doesn't end up just sitting in there office. I already had a mishap before when I applied for the FAMS and my credit check never got pulled even after I signed the release. It turned out that by the time they realized what they did, their only response to me was, "sorry, but we're already passed this stage and interviews are already being conducted, you'll have to wait and apply to the next opening. I hope that doesn't end up being the case here.. Also, did anyone else have to take a chest X-ray? I assumed it was part of the process but they didn't do that for me.

          Per CBPO FAQs..."the test itself takes about five hours and contains four sections – Logical and Quantitative Reasoning Skills, Writing skills, and an Assessment of experience and achievement."

          Good Luck!!

            i would call back tomorrow and speak to someone to make sure that they have sent the packet for you. as far as the x-ray they only do that if the TB comes back as positive with the skin test. I asked before i left cause i want to make sure they did it. i went back this morning to have my tb read and they pulled out my file and the doctor had to sign off on it. so check into that.

              If you are just starting for the SWB you still have at least 2 years of waiting, unless they change how they do things in the near future...
              your post is a little discouraging.

                Did you copy down the tracking number that was provided?

                I had a similar situation. They sent out my package back to CHS that same day, before I even went back to TB. They told me they will fax it.

                  I'm so upset at myself for not even considering to copy the tracking number!! A good piece of information though, I'll definitely remember to do that in the future, I think I will do as Shaniajam suggests and call them back tomorrow just to assure that everything was sent back. Thanks....

                    chest x-rays are done mainly on people who have tested positive for TB in the past. If you've never tested positive for it, there is no need for it.

                      what you can also do is call CHS to see if they received EVERYTHING just to rest assure.

                        It is the truth... not sugar coating it.
                        Plan for the worse case scenario and if it comes through quicker than expected... you'll be pleasantly surprised!

                              It will effect everything. It's like defaulting on a loan but this time it's our country. What good comes from that? None

                                I'm very new on this site, and I already got educated on the process of the CBP. I have my written this coming Thursday; I have few questions in regards of the test:
                                1- How long s the test?
                                2- How hard is the test? ( I did the practice test, and I found it a bit challenging)
                                3- Do they provide calculators?
                                4-is speaking a different languages, such as Arabic, would help in getting hired faster?

                                Looking forward in reading all the answers.
                                blessings
                                1. About 4 hours.
                                2. Depends how much you study. I think it was hard given the time limit.
                                3. No calculators.
                                4. If you were to apply for the FBI or the CIA. I am not too sure about CBP though.
