It is what it is, if you're a 2010 tester and applied for the SWB and your BI is taking forever, chances are that you have foreign contacts in your family, have an extensive history of residences and employment, or you have traveled a lot or were in the military or all of the above.......

    If you're a non-SWB applicant, be prepared to have your background investigation given an extremely low priority.
    Though i do not disagree with your assessment, the only thing that chaps my hide (thru no fault of yours) is the being in the military and having a complicated background. There is supposed to be a push to hire veterans, yet because they (including myself) served their country, their background is pushed aside because it is deemed "complicated". I have had a security clearance my entire military career. If DHS is doing this then that is sad.

    The Government could save money by having one organization do the Backgrounds/Clearances for all departments ie..DOD, DHS, DOJ and use those active clearances instead of doing the same exact investigation two or three times. The E-QIP is exactly the same, trust me. My rant..lol

            Hi! Today is my first day finally having permission to post in the forum. What does your timeline look like? I'm also a female wondering how much quicker our process is compared to everyone else. It's only been 4 months but im getting anxious too! I can only imagine everyone else who has been waiting for a year or so...

            • I've been reading everyone's post for a couple of weeks now and I finally got validated to post. Im getting anxious to hear anything else since it seemed like my process was moving along fairly quickly but now waiting for drug test and background. I'd love to see if any other female out there is done with the process and how long it took them...

                        I understand your frustration, I currently have a secret clearance with DHS and that means nothing in the CBPO hiring process. As for your background, I don't believe DHS is purposely delaying your background investigation, from what I understand acquiring service records is difficult and slow to say the least, if you want to place blame on anyone, it should be whoever controls military records as I understand they are quite slow to process and release them.

                        Thank you for your service and best of luck with the process.
