      If you're asking about the written test, I wore jeans and t-shirt. Took the test for BP twice and on that one people came in wearing shorts. For everything else, at bare minimum put on a dress shirt shirt, tie, dress pants, and dress shoes. Make sure to shine your shoes and a fresh haircut doesn't hurt either.

            oh dude, for the medicals and pft1 shorts and a t-shirt

            For the written test, nobody cares because there are so many people in there taking it (in Miami during the written, every other seat was occupied). For the other sit downs related to the hiring process, use common sense. Its better to be overdressed than under.

              Wear something reasonable. If you are wondering if your choice of attire is proper, then play safe and dress more formally.

              I have seen mid-level CBP management at test sites. You never know who might be watching and taking notes. You don't want to be seen as "that guy".

                Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma.This event may involve the threat of death to oneself or to someone else, or to one's own or someone else's physical, sexual, or psychological integrity,overwhelming the individual's ability to cope. As an effect of psychological trauma, PTSD is less frequent and more enduring than the more commonly seen acute stress response. Diagnostic symptoms for PTSD include re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks or nightmares, avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma, and increased arousal—such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, anger, and hypervigilance. Formal diagnostic criteria (both DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10) require that the symptoms last more than one month and cause significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.( I got this from Wikipedia.)


                So, honestly PTSD does not look good. Maybe your fellow veterans can give you better advise.

Good luck to everyone that's still in the running! This will be my last post on the forum.
                  Deuces!
                  I guess you're not a real Gringa after all haha, lying to the Feds. Just joking, well I don't get it quite honestly how you said that you "told the truth" and they failed you. So if one tells the honest truth and fails, then what about the ones that tell lies? Maybe there has to be more to your story.

                    PTSD and/or the 60% rating will not be automatic DQ's. but they will fully evaluate all of your records, all the circumstances, send you for psych evals, and it may take some time to get a determination.
