    Oh ok. I guess my concern is if it will affect my current job. I have a top secret clerance now but I've never taken a poly.
    I don't think it will, I just redid my TS clearance earlier this year as well but like you I wasn't polygraphed

      Didn't know that... Thanks for the heads up Yoda!

      At least you got an e-mail lol. I didn't get anything. I just got the green check in CASS a few weeks after and that was about it. Does the PFT2 come after the call?

I changed my Geo preference in late October and have been given a TO, I've already done the medical/pft1, vbt/si, and I'm just waiting for my BI to clear. I switched to swb and my question is if they let you choose where to be stationed at? I'm hoping for San Diego and will gladly wait until it opens but will they allow me to wait? Thanks
          I asked the same question. If you at least get to select a preference and they said no. She said you would get the location that has funding when your turn comes up. She said there is no way to find out where you will end up. If you decline the location, your offer gets cancelled.

          I would love San Diego as well!

            Yup it's just luck of the draw! We have to take what we can get. The closest you'll probably get to San Diego is San Ysidro, which is what I'm hoping for.

              Yeah I guess so. We just have to wait and see where we'll end up. I would be happy with San Ysidro, anywhere in CA is good for me. It's hard when you have a family and you have to convince everyone to move to another state

                Yeah I'd love anything in San Diego. That would mean I get a beater car and don't have to drive my other cars lol.

                Same thing with me. My fiancee on the other hand wants BFE because she hates CA.

                  same boat.. I know beggars can't be choosers so just have to hope that luck is on our side, I have a family and they don't want to move from North County, I'd commute to SY easily

                  • I'm hoping for SD as well, I grew up in Mira Mesa and have been looking at houses in eastern Chula Vista which is pretty nice. The housing market is also awesome right now for buyers in socal. I'm hoping that my move back to the west coast will finally happen.

                      Exactly! Beggars can't be choosers! lol! At this point I am super excited to have the TO but so far my family has agreed to move if it's in CA. I'm in L.A. now.

                              So if I've failed the poly a year and a half ago then I won't be eligible to be hired...ever? When I applied this time it had asked if I had taken one and failed and I said yes. Why would they allow me to register again? I'm also taking the PFt1 tomorrow. Would they waste money on testing people who they have no intentions of actually hiring?

                                Unfortunately, yes. Your failed Poly is considered part of your background investigation, you will make it through the process until they reach your background investigation and then you will likely be taken out of the process as they investigate your background and find that you previously failed a poly with CBP.

                                Keep going with the process, you never know, but I've seen this happen before unfortunately.

                                What is your current GEO?
