      all depends on where you applied to, how extensive your background is, and about 1400 other things. I applied for Miami in Jan. of this year, got my job offer about 2 weeks ago... some have been waiting 18 months or longer. Best advice, dont hold your breath waiting for the call.

      Good luck on the test.

      • I specified VA on my application does anyone know which specific offices that cover? Because southern VA seems to be under the Atalanta FO and from Richmond North is under the DC part.

        Just wondering

          Great I was hoping to leave my pd soon. Looks like it might be a while. I applied for Miami too.

            It's different for everyone. I tested in march and got my job offer in less than 4 months. There's really no rhyme or reason as to the duration.

              You never know. since you have PD background, it may take a shorter time.... its really a shot in the dark with how long it takes. But as for what I've heard about Miami and how bad they are in need of people... it could be quick.

                  After I mailed in my pre-employment forms it took 5 months for them to clear my quals. Sometimes it is even longer than that. A lady in the CBP staffing unit told me that is usually the last thing they do but not always the case. I wouldn't worry about it, you'll be qualified.

                  • hey everyone i got another quick question. Yesterday i got a letter in mail saying i am not medically cleared because of a knee injury i had when i was 14. I had a pinched miniscus but didnt need surgery or anything. Anyway the letter says i have to mail in my records and see an orthopedist to get cleared. Has anyone ever dealt with this issue? If so how long does it delay the hiring process? This is the only thing not checked as completed on the CASS website.
                    Thanks.

                    • Cargo82:

                      All you need to do is go to a specialist that will certify that whatever problem you had with your knee when you were 14, is not presently a problem and won't be a problem in the future. This will all be at your own cost of course but that's how it goes... They want to make sure you will be able to perform at the academy and that you won't become a "problem", so don't stress just get to a specialist and get your tests done on the knee. The sooner you do that and send the papers to MHC the better, it'll take a couple of weeks to clear at MHC after they receive the proper papers.

                      Hope this helped...

                      • So Dateline on NBC had a special on CBP... anyone else see it? Pretty informative about the job that we will be doing.

                          A friend of mine called me tonight to tell me about it but by the time I got home it was already 45 minutes into the show so I didn't get to see much. I was upset that I missed it. Does anyone know if it will be on again?

                            • Ammo19, you can read the transcript on the msnbc website but I can't seem to find an online stream or time for when they'll run the episode again.

                                Check ONDEMAND. Maybe?
