    Not in AZ, but a co-worker of mine applied for AZ Nov 2010 and had his VBT and SI about a month ago. We're located in New England, I believe he traveled to Boston for it. Good luck!

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but even with the recent hiring push; the average wait time to get hired is still going to be 2-3 years.

      The days of being hired 30-90 days after you've completed all your checks are long gone. There are many who have tested in 07-08 and still waiting to get their call because they picked a non-SWB port.

      • Hey guys please answer my question. Sry if its been asked b4. Last year I was in the process for BPA and passed everything except I was DQ because I did not meet the education requirements for the grade I applied for. I submitted all the paperwork and passed the interview.
        So now I took the last CBPO exam in PA and passed it. CBP sent me a packet about 2 months ago to fill out and mail (declaration of fed employment and such with the offer for SWB) which stated that I would have to submit it within a week or 2 or else I would be DQ. I previously filled this out for BPA and other Fed gigs like TSA. Long story short, I didn’t mail the packet. Today I received a letter to do the VBT and also have been receiving calls to schedule a medical even though I didn’t mail the packet back.
        Is it possible that they are using my BPA paperwork ?
        P.S. I thought I should continue this process as a backup in case all else fails.

          so...why didn't you complete the packet and send it back? You know a big part of this job is following directions on how to perform the job correctly right?

          • Because I have a LE job now, just thought i'd play it safe by having a backup plan.

                I have my scheduled in Tucson for 8-23. I live in Salt Lake City. I've just being flying where ever they schedule me for things. Good luck.

                  • I got a call for my 2nd background investigation by the woman doing mine this time around.

                    I had assumed she knew I have already gone through this with CBP, 2 years ago obviously, but at the very end of our conversation after she tells me everything I need to get/bring to her Wednesday morning, she seemed surprised that I had already gone through this with CBP, and passed my BI two years ago (more actually) and hadn't been hired yet.

                    Good times.

                    But I really look forward to it, any movement of my process is a good thing.

                        Yeah the same thing happened to me. They dont tell the investigators that is the second BI. They want everything from scratch. Of course BI messed up and gave my investigator the old BI questionaire, couldnt believe that. Good luck.

                            Thats good man you are knocking those steps out. It will be 2-3 years before you get the final job offer...just a heads up.

                              It's good not to get so hyped up because it may take a while. But depending on your geo location it may only take 6 months, so stay fit and don't rely on the 2 year period, it might be closer than you think!!!
