    No I have never met or heard with the investigator, I just received a letter certified mail and I disclosed this information to them when I filled out the BI form for the background investigation. I filled everything out with honesty how it should be. Now just working on writing a response and dealing with this collection agency which is a headache!
    Might be easier just to pay the $700 bucks and get it cleared

    • I also received a NOPA last year for some issues in my background and I EOD on August 13. Just follow the instructions on the delphi forums template and make sure you show that you take responsibility for your actions and how you have learned from your mistakes. Good luck!

      • Got an extension for my medical, so went and had the stress test and another EKG done. The Doctor said everything looked great and sent my information off to the review board on Thursday. Nothing else is changed in my CASS but I'm hoping if my medical gets cleared everything will start moving along again. Wish I would see a green check on my pre-employment forms and qualifications, tired of seeing "one or more forms may have not been received yet".

        Also, I was able to get on as a seasonal ranger with BLM. So that will be a nice way of waiting for everything to clear.

If so, wouldn't it be very risky to apply in case for some reason you were found unsuitable or were one of the 3/5 who do not pass the polygraph? Then it would prevent you from even getting another federal job or getting fired from one you hold...

          The three year ban applies to all competitive service jobs...I believe.

          Failing the poly, although not an actual ruling of unsuitability, probably will cause some issues with hiring elsewhere.

          For the most part there is an easy way to avoid an 'unsuitability' determination. When 'strongly advised' to withdraw an application, withdraw it.

            I only have a few classes left for the RN program, so my question is, if found unsuitable for USCBP would that hinder me in trying to become an RN through a usajobs.gov job posting, either for a government agency or military organization?

            Anyone that may have some information can respond. Please and thank you!
            I imagine that, at least in the short term, an actual finding of unsuitability on the part of CBP/OPM would impact getting hired on for most federal positions.

              MEDICAL: Completed

              POLY: Pending Maybe?
              BI: In Security Office
              PFT1: Completed

              I have pretty much waiting for the background and I just received a letter from the security office that I'm not suitable for employment because two areas of concern: 1) Drug use 3 times EVER use of Marijuana and 2) a unpaid medical bill of $718. They are giving 15 days to hear my side of the story on this two issues otherwise I will be remove from the tentative selection process. I have been crushed with this, I have never had a drug problem nor I have EVER been a habitual user, I put my admission because Im an honest person and would not lie in the application process. The $718 medical bill issue is something I'm dealing with a collection agency that turn a $7 dollar doctor visit bill that I was unaware and 5 years later is $718 that I'm fighting off. Any how does anyone know what are my chances to refuting these adverse derogatory findings and I can continue with the process?? I just need some thoughts and opinions thank you, because I'm very crushed with this news
              You should be able to get over the medical bill...as long as you show you're actively working with the collection people to resolve it.

              The MJ...can't tell you. That depends on things like recency and your age.
              If you smoked weed three times 12 years ago at the age of 15...that's one thing.
              If you smoked weed three times 15 months ago at the age of 26...that's another.

              • Hello everyone. Does anyone know how long you have to wait to reapply if you failed pft1? As you may know, there is currently an open period, and I was wondering if I could apply again right away.

                  I believe it is one year. No you could not just reapply again under this announcement.

                    How do you know you failed? You will get a letter from mhc stating you are no longer in the process. Also if you get a chance to do anymore steps then do them.

                      I just got a letter stating I had failed the fitness test. It says I could reapply during a future open period, but I was looking at previous post in this thread and read that someone reapplied right away. I did the VBT a couple of days after the pft, but haven't recieved the results yet.

                                Is crazy that every time I called they always answer, like today I call mhc to get info about TSU and they answer and give me their number.
