      I got the call this AM and she said I would be contacted for the pft2 but no one has called me yet for that. When I chose calexico I looked up your EOD date to see I it was the same but it's off by a little, at the time she called me there were only 4 available spots at Calexico and the person she spoke with prior to me had taken one and she said that's the popular choice now, so it seems there will be a few of us starting up soon

        Yeah thats you should be getting an e-mail with your PFT2 date. I have my family in SD so I will be making trips out to SD on the weekends during pre-academy. It's only and a couple of hour drive... so its not too bad. They won't be moving out to Imperial until I get back from FLETC.

          What kind of TV's are in the Taj at FLETC? I've been told we can bring a PS3/Xbox so I know the tv's have a connection of some kind on the back, but what, VGA/DVI/Component?

          I'm thinking of bringing my Mac Mini computer. I'm wondering if I need to somehow get a monitor as well or can I use the TV. thanks
          Don't count on it. Some buildings have TVs you can work with others don't. There's 3 building that sompose the taj. I got the bad luck of getting an old tube tv. My xbox has been sitting in a corner since I've been here......

          Don't worry about it.

              • Hi I dont know if I should make my own thread or ask here but here it goes

                How would it be if I get the call for BPA and then for CPBO.
                let say im at the academy or at the station under the 2 year probationary period. and then they offer me a position for CBPO.
                do you just quit and then start from the academy again for the CPBO.

                as right now im unemployed just got out of the military, but I want to be with CBPO, I only need the BI to clear on my CASS for BPA.

                  I did not know how to connect it either, Connect it through the VCR in the front then put it on channel 3. That should work.

From the moment we started it seemed like he had already determined I wasn't going to pass. Sure enough I didn't. I was 100% honest about everything but the machine said otherwise. There was nothing I could do about it either. That's life I guess. Oh and he did tell me I had failed before I left.
                    If you fail the poly you can reapply? I didn't know that, but I guess your living proof of that. I thought they knock you out again if they find out you failed the poly the first time around?

                    Stories like this make me angry. I've taken a poly before for my current non LEO job and the person told me that for one of the questions I received a "deception level of 80%" I was just thinking to myself: How in the world could deception be measured as a percentage? The whole thing is a gimmick most likely to give them more discretion on hiring people. After being told that I had a high percentage of deception I explained why my body might have reacted that way (I am constantly thinking and my ideologies can be very generalized or broad at times). When all was said and done they still gave me the job. Polygraphs are WORTHLESS unless used as a form of discretion or discrimination. There has to be something else you could do about this result.
                    I totally agree with you, I felt discriminated against and made out to be a criminal when I am not! I am such a goody-good. I tried to explain to the polygrapher the same thing you did with how my body might have reacted to the machine, since it's not everyday I take a polygraph test. But all I kept hearing thats not true and that I am lieing. All I can say is that, after experiencing the machine myself...it is not accuarate at all!!! I feel the same way as you that it is just a way to discriminate and weed out people that they don't like, but it is such a waste of money and time! I would rather just hear that they don't have any more positions available than to play mind games and say I am trying to be deceptive when I didn't do anything but tell the truth! Thanks for sharing your experiences and if anyone else had any experience with taking a polygraph exam for cbp, please share!

The second time around everything has happened pretty quick and I just turned in my equip last week so the only thing missing is the background investigation. I would reapply if I was you. You dont want to miss the announcement and then be told that you cannot continue in the process with your old application.
                      Thanks for the reply. I think I will reapply and see what happens. its frustrating because i was so close and then the person administering the test complicated matters..

                      Just have to wait more now!

                          The avg wait for my class was 3.5yrs, but it looks like it might be longer now! Non-SWB
                          Yeah, I wonder if anyone has made it to their 3rd background investigation prior to being hired. I cleared my second one a month or so ago... and there's no "relief" in sight...

                          • Well, my bro in law is also applying for CBPO, and he and a friend of his only took the VBT. No SI after the test. This was three weeks ago. He just met with the BI, and his investigation has already started. This was at the Laredo office. I did the SI and the VBT a few months ago, so I don't know what's going on. I doubt that he failed the test. Maybe is it a change in procedure? Don't stress out over it. Just wait for the results, and let us know what happens. Good luck.

                                I waited a year and reapplied. My background investigator told me last week that if I waited long enough to reapply then the old polygraph test wouldn't matter. I'm hoping she's right and they don't give me the boot later. She finished talking to everyone that was on my list and said she would send it off today.
