I submitted everything, but I am still waiting for my BI to call me for an interview. Any thoughts guys? Please!
        I am in the same position as you. I emailed and spoke to MHC several times about it and they gave me an answer of "you can not be offered a position at this time because you have pending steps". Even if you have previously cleared all the steps already (multiple times).

        Meaning people with later tests/steps/TOs will be hired before you simply because of the timing of your steps being expired, that policy is also opposite of what they told me about a year and a half ago.

        It sucks and I do not think there is anything that can be done about it. But it is weird that your BI has been pending since April and no investigator has come to interview you yet. Have you completed the updated background forms online yet?

            What is really a concern about this practice is that someone here got a job offer with pending steps... and it wasn't someone that had been previously cleared either. Why skip over some that have been in the process for a very long time and have taken the steps over and over... to give it to someone that has just started the process with pending steps no less?
            At this point it is way beyond me on how they come about these decisions. I took my fair share of licks waiting 4 years for this job, but this is somewhat ridiculous.

              CBP places so much weight with the polygraph on whether or not you are hired that if you pass it, they believe you will pass the background investigation. Could be good but could also be bad. We all know the accuracy of polygraphs.

It's unfortunate but I don't think there is any recourse except to redo the BI and hope for the best. Have you taken a proactive approach and called MHC or IA to find out what is going on. I can't imagine you're very happy about being skipped after being in the process so long. Not that anything will change at this point in terms of Mar424 being awarded a position over you but calling MHC may help you avoid being skipped again. Just out of curiosity, did you have to appeal a NOPA the first time around by chance? Is it possible they would also want you to partake in a Poly since your BI is being renewed? Just things to consider.

                    Good luck, I hope you clear things up and get a final offer soon. I know I wouldn't be happy being skipped in terms of a TO for the Northeast region........I can't imagine how you feel.
                    Never received a NOPA, have not been asked to do a Poly, turned in all the forms back in May, and confirmed they received everything. I also called and they told me to give it until Dec. and if the BI has not called me to give them a call so that they can inquire as to why I have not been called.

                        Yeah...I tested this past July. I was sent and completed both my PFT1 &2 a couple weeks ago (last week of Aug). I received a letter in the mail last Friday for my VBT to be the 29th of this month. I'm having a hard time understanding it all...I mean, I read the posts on here of fully qualified guys waiting from as far back as 2008 and crap. And here I am...just applied in May, tested in July, and it seems to be speeding through. Not sure if I should brace myself for a grinding hault, or just be ready for an express ride to the SWB.

                        • Hello,

                          I am very nervous. This is what Cass said as of 9/9/2011

                          9/9/2011 You have tentatively met the pre-employment requirements and your file is being reviewed. Once a final determination is made that all requirements have been met, you will be notified of the next steps.

                          I am scarred that I might not pass PFT2. Im scarred that I am going to be in Texas by myself without my family. I'm scarred that my kids are not gonna be ok when I leave. I am excited at the same time. Then i got a letter confirming my pay grade so I am happy. But I am dodoing bricks right now.

                          Happy and sad. This is what I have been waiting for. Why am I sad????

                            PFT-2 is after they call you with a job offer... all you did was PFT-1.

                              If it says referred to schedule EOD, then you might be waiting for a call...
                              If that happens I would strongly suggest you don't walk on the run, and if you're that far off the 1.5 in 17 min, you won't be able to graduate once you get here. We already had 1 female not graduate for failing all 3 Fitness Tests... last one by 30 seconds.
                              My advice to you is to get on with the running. The fitness standards are equal for males and females, 24 push-up's, 220 yd run under 45 sec (1/2 lap on a 1/4 mile track), 1.5 mile run under 15... no sit-up's. There's also the sit & reach 12.5 inches, which is nothing.
